Monkey in charge


Watched Sid & Nancy for the first time this evening.  Grimly, horribly depressing, watching two people completely fuck up their lives with no idea what they were doing, or why.

Then went for a walk down to Portobello beach, where the tide was so far out I was beginning to think that the estuary had somehow magically emptied itself - in the dark it was hard to see the water until we almost waded into it.  Still, remarkably pretty, especially watching gulls take off in two directions at once, peeling away from the ground as if choreographed.
