A new development yesterday—there was a floozie in Cine Paris going round the men in the dark (and it is really, really dark in there) offering her services—50 euros for suck & fuck. I had passed her in the lobby earlier and presumed her to be the cleaning lady. During the night, a new custom of my stays in Brussels now, The Big Sleep dubbed into French on TV. Has there ever been anything finer on a cinema screen than Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall together? Even if I cannot understand what they are saying. 1118 and on my second beer of the day.
