news

i'm really sad that my favourite female tennis player, justine henin, has announced her retirement. this really came as a surprise - henin had been ranked number 1 for over a year now, and she's only 25. i will miss her stunning backhand.


oh and just in case you are wondering about what is going on in austria: we do not all keep people locked up in our basements, nor do we normally (plan to) kill our entire families with an axe.


dress rehearsal for erotic reading tonight - we had one on tuesday, which was sooo much fun! i decided to have martin and/or sandro accompany three of my poems on guitar/sax. i really am looking forward to the reading, and i am also getting a bit nervous now ...

song of the day: smokers outside the hospital doors by the editors.

Austria is getting some bad press lately. You guys are going to have to win a nobel prize or something to live this down....

yeah well, i guess other countries don't get such bad press because horrible crimes are more "normal" there.

but yes, these things that happened are sickening.

Don't get nervous you should be proud of your self for having an achievement like that. Not everyone has a gift/opportunity as you have..
