song of the week: Thom Yorke - Harrowdown Hill, from "The Eraser"
"We think the same things at the same time
We just can't do anything about it...

Can you see me when I'm running?"

  1. Great quote! I am going to keep that one in mind when I'm running around the track at Caboolture for 6 hours on Feb 10th.
