I took a walk in the city—is that how you usually start these things? But who am I kidding, I stayed home all day. As if I've got shit to do but watch some more acquaintances get famous from my room. And it's not what I have earned, but it's just what I deserve.

No better way to get sick of yourself, I would have said the same thing. But that was years ago, and now I know how much choice I have got. If you could see me now, I only hope you'd be surprised. I only hope you never thought it'd come to this. I'm just dead space and idle hands. I got homesick, so I locked myself in.

But if we got what we wished for back in the day, I guess you'd skate with Bobby Orr. And I would wake up in 2001 and just go back to sleep.
