Sat 9 Jan

Have found a favourite haunt in Mons for coffee and cake. They always give you a little taster of something with your drink, even if you haven't ordered any food, which is a nice touch. The kind of thing that makes you want to go back. And I like drinking coffee in mugs without handles. Makes me feel more sophistimicated.

Went back to the local cinema and this time saw a rather bad film: "Away We Go." Absolute pretentious, middle-class tosh. Damn these middle classes and their mundane hang-ups! A couple who are expecting a baby take a trip around America (and Canada) to revisit old friends to test where they should end up relocating. Of course they're all a hugely unlikeable bunch with a range of "issues," which succeeds in making the main couple quite likeable. Which they're not really, in my opinion. Anyway, not one I'd recommend.
