Dear diary.

You know, in songs they sometimes say that all good things must end. It's true. While Nafaru and I hit it off quite good and big and many times, it has proven to be one of the good things that must end. We had a bit of a fight last night. Of course it was over something small and silly, the reason that most fights start over. I had only asked her to move in with me since things were going so well. That is when she started to be angry. She said I should move in with her, since after all she had been a princess and all that stuff.

No way, of course. I have my position. I run this place, more or less, so I think that I am entitled to call the shots around here. Which is what I told her. And then she told me to go away. Not exactly using these words, but that was what it came down to. My arguing that she had been indeed a princess and now was a dead one did not make her any calmer, so she found more and more things to use as projectiles. All of them heading towards me. Luckily, in her anger, she was more prone to throwing than aiming, making it easy for me to dodge the incoming.

I have sent a few repair folks over to her place this morning, as she had destroyed quite a few things in her home when she was venting her anger. Really, it was a revelation to me that someone as skinny as she is can pick up a wooden table and throw it at me. Well, she tried to anyway. She fell over backwards in the attempt, but still, you've got to admire the spirit and the thought. When I went over to her to help her up she tried to kick me in the privates, so I decided that a swift exit was the best thing to do, as she was not available for reason. On the way out I encountered one of her sisters, who looked worried. I told her not to worry about me, but that appeared to be the least of her worries. She wanted to go into the house of Nafaru. I did warn her to be careful because of flying objects, tempers and a tremendous hissy-fit.

The look that Nafaru's sister gave me after that was not an inviting one. She hissed something about getting away before accidents would happen. Must be a sister thing. So I headed out in what must have been close to the middle of the night. That actually is a wonderful time of the day. Most things are quiet and calm, it is nice and dark. I also was in quite a good mood, so I decided to do the rounds a bit earlier than usual.

Of course, some people may think that it is weird that I can be in a good mood after a big fight like that, but hey, when you've been around the block a few times like I have, you have learnt that things like that can either hurt you, or you can shrug and see what new chances there are out there. By now I have grown smart enough to follow the latter road. It's also a lot easier and saves time. It is a case of living la vida loco or something, as far as real life is an option here.

Everything was rather quiet everywhere, which was of course not much more than normal, except for the old eastern block hell. There was a lot going on there! They had put up big lights outside and loads of people were walking around, so I became curious. Walking up the grounds I saw a number of faces that I had never seen before. Some of the new ones looked at me suspiciously, but they did seem to know me and left me alone. Good for them.

I went into the building and tried to locate the overseer on duty, in this case it was Igor. "Hey Igor

le... I hope you will excuse me... I am overcome with joy and emotion..." And with these words he quickly fled.

Xiao Fung shook his windy head. "He's generally okay, but when he does like that I always hope he leaves. I am glad he never fails that hope. It was my pleasure to assist. Good bye!" Leaves and small bits whirled as he wooshed off into the black sky.

As I was about to leave, Buddy Hopkiss and his mate, Carlisle Dempsey, appeared on the scene. Carlisle was taking pictures like mad, Buddy had his notepad at the ready. They came to me, but I quickly told them that Igor was the one they should talk to. Sorry Igor, I owe you one.

After this little distraction I went home, had a bit of a nap, a bite to eat and looked at what messages had arrived. There was nothing very special, except a mail from Nafaru threatening to poison me the next chance she had and one of the Glurphs. Gl-or-y-hus. Oops. They still were very enthusiastic about their new afterlife, and they had nothing but positive comments from their dearly departed. Those are the good messages to get! I decided that it would be a good plan to go and visit them.

Maurice nodded when I told him.

"If there is anything I can always call you, " he said. Good boy. I just worry a bit: he has an axe hanging on the wall behind him. I suspect he has spent a bit too much time with Thor...

The Glor-y-hus were really doing well. At least, as far as I can tell from what I know of them. They wandered around the area, stood in the sun, gnawed on rocks (mere pebbles for them) and seemed to be happy as a Glurph in a cave. Haha, that's funny! There were quite a few of them already, I noticed. Many of them did not know or recognise me, of course, but there still were plenty of Glor-y-husses around that did, and with the occasional problem of communication the newcomers were introduced. Maybe I should show up a bit more often when a new group arrives. That always leaves a good and dedicated impression.

The rest of the day went by without much of interest. I did spend a while in the hammock. And I saw that little witch run by again, in her enticing outfit. Maybe I should pick up running. Or another form of sport. I wonder if folding aeroplanes would also be considered a form of sport...
