Frank is in front of the laptop.
Cool. He emerges, graduates. In what does Frank graduate? In five footsteps left
he caught up with Gropius and four right Lee Miller: four, and a bit of shadow
to go with it, specifically from a cave bear I presume, or from an opossum, of
an ant if need be.
Are you generally happy with your photobox? Nope. I exchanged mine for a
Berlusconi, less inchangeable.
Frank nods agreeingly. Yes, he is happy with his photobox. The range isn't ok,

At the table in the corridor is a can

They started with the horoscope in early september, says Frank. Costed an arm

us - it's a Pavlov reflex - only reads the things related to their own jobs.
So the conversation turns to - later, close to closing time - the biggest
on earth. Jezus. It waters over the waters. If there hadn't been a word for
prostitution, they could just as well have called it Jezus, or: the child
jezus, patron saint of paedophilia.  
Two things: I've no telly and I don't read horoscopes.
Bionade is doing well. [Bionade is a brand of 'organic' lemonade in Belgium.] Cristina
Amelia lends a hand. After midnight, someone with a piercing in his left
earlobe and called Tim starts discussing the parfume of foodstuff.
He explains: everything has a specific perfume, just as well as the sweat of a
cigar smoker.
