I have a Linda, tomorrow we're off to Paris, and I don't have to be at work for almost two weeks. These are all good things!


THE ANONYMOUS WRITING FEEDBACK MEME

AKA, am home safe and sound with all limbs intact - also rather browner and with a much heavier suitcase. The journey was a nightmare, but well, at least I survived it. Pictures will follow eventually (but please bear in mind that I still haven't finished uploading all the pics from the Africa trip...).

In other news, I'm going to Malaysia for my birthday. Any recommendations for places to visit, bearing in mind that I'm leaving in, um. Less than two weeks?

Home safe, though kind of exhausted. Why do holidays have to end?

And a meme, stolen from [livejournal.com profile] seajules:

Put your music player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first song is the title.
(English songs only, because I'm not up to translating most of the other languages!

And finally the silence
Heard you today, that isn't my name, you were fast asleep.
I was born in a forked-tongued story,
And even though the moment passed me by,
When it hurts too much to pretend,
Tonight I'm so alone.

The last time I saw you, you turned away.
The sidewalk bends where your house ends.
He and I had something beautiful;
Am I alone in this?
Black fingernails, red wine.

There are nine million bicycles in Beijing,
I need to know if you were real.
Strokes of dark, a brush of light,
You, you got me,
Sweeping up plaster.

Good morning sun,
Hello, hello.
Well, I’m looking for an old soul.
Someone is waiting,
I'm driving to your house.

Must go home. Do not want. Why can't vacation last forever?

Have not been eaten yet, yay. Leaving for DC tomorrow. Sob, and yay.

Off again

Flying out tomorrow to bother certain members of the flist. Should be around periodically, but if I'm not, you know who to blame.

... also, if my toes freeze off.

Go go USA

A heads up to those who may find this of interest: I will possibly be in NY in Oct. Dates are a bit up in the air right now, but I will probably be at a festival the weekend of the 18th, and around for a week or so either before or after, with the possibility of seeing other parts of the country. Anyone who wants to hear my poncey British accent in person, please let me know.

So I start my first real job on Monday. I think this is the part where I run in circles, whimpering as I chew my nails. Here, have a couple more African albums.

Home, alive and uneaten. Picture post of massive proportions to follow, when I'm human again and up to the task of organsing and sorting photos.
alias: (Default)
Have made it to Botswana. Home again in four days! Seen much exciting stuff, taking many photos. Got chased by lions. (Maybe I exaggerate a little.)
alias: (Default)
So yesterday I took a motorised hang glider flight over Victoria Falls. (So awesome. Really expensive.) And not dead yet. :D
alias: (Default)
Off to Darkest Africa in three days. Am I packed? No. Insert flailing here.
(South Africa, Zambia, Botswana. If I'm not back on the 25th, send out the search parties.)
alias: (Default)
Because I promised a few people this spam, some pictures from Egypt. Click on the pics to enlarge, and if anyone's interested in more, just prod me.

As promised, a small assortment of photos from Dubai. These are not the very best photos ever taken, since several were taken from a moving vehicle and my camera was being cranky. Still, they provide an idea.

Desert )

More here for the curious. Including belly dancing, hotels, and experiments in light trails.

On Dubai

Safely home, and, as I have been for the last few days, struggling to put into words exactly what it is about Dubai that made it feel so comfortable, so much like a potential home. Further musing )
