Having just taken my best shot at Dale, it would be dishonest not to leave myself open to the same..
I think everyone is curious about what others think of them. It's a natural curiosity and one that we rarely get to indulge in. So, let's indulge. Comment on this post with the three words that you think best describe me. They don't have to be complimentary. They don't have to be anything but honest. Post this in your journal and find out what three words others would use to describe you.

However, in entirely other news, I have returned from South Africa with bloody hundreds of pictures.. Possibly thousands, actually..

I've been working through them, and on the basis that Facebook's timeline, location and people tagging functionality seems to fit a lot of the pictures, that's where they'll end up. Creepy data policies aside, the thing is that I had an amazing time, and it's an experience that I really want to share with people, and of course Facebook is more or less the best place for that sort of communal interaction.

But put simply, it was probably the best holiday I've ever been on, though it's difficult to form a fair comparison vs my honeymoon. In either case, South Africa occupies #1 and #2 on the list, and that's what matters. It's a beautiful country, with all kinds of awesome things to do, and a political background that I find really engaging and interesting. I think I'd take the politics of a post-apartheid South Africa over a proto-fascist UK any day.. It's not about where you are, it's about where your trajectory is taking you...

Much much more to follow, here or on Facebook..
