melting, melt

I would love to go on this

Well, on any safari-like tour, especially involving the coast and wildlife. Too bad this is probably already full and WAY too expensive!

I would also love to travel more while I still can and see more of the world. I have various wishlists over in the right-hand sidebar of my LJ, the most relevant being my Listography lists.

I am SO not a cheap date!

Harry Patch (In memory of)
I am the only one that got through
The others died where ever they fell
It was an ambush
They came up from all sides
Give your leaders each a gun and then let them fight it out themselves
I've seen devils coming up from the ground
I've seen hell upon this earth
The next will be chemical but they will never learn

I think that this is quite beautiful!

  • 10:22:22: Gah. I forgot that today is WoW patch day. I hope I don't blow our limit...
  • 10:24:37: I foretell using a LOT of earplugs this summer. New family downstairs. Everyone yells "NO!" at the dog all the time. School holidays? Guh.
  • 10:30:34: Then again, the girl *is* helping her mum quietly in the garden when she is not yelling at dog or "Oh My Gawd!" about new things she sees.
  • 10:32:38: Oh great. NOT. Another talent tree reset for DKs in WoW. I wish I had saved a copy of what I had on my dual specs b4 today!

  • 13:46:56: Note to self: when trying to nap, turn off Twitter SMS notifications! ;-)
  • 13:52:59: Wondering whether to tempt fate and the gawds of my guts by eating but I am HUNGRY!
  • 13:55:23: @NeilCFord True, but then I would miss potentially important non-Twitter SMSs. Hence why I don't just put iPhone on silent. ;-)

  • 23:42:23: If I need to look to my genes for a positive outlook on life then I have no hope of one. Long stories and many of them. Oh well.
