It's never really come, has it?
So much for summer, the last couple of months have been just weird. And now it's September, and it's over as such, all we can now wait for is miserable rain and wind.
Not that I care too much. I've always thought winter was so much better (not talking of freeze-your-balls-off kind of Siberian stuff though).

"Networking" and "staying in touch with friends" through the internet seems to be all the rage (or perhaps has been for quite a while now), mySpace, Facebook and all them sites are all over the place.
So I've given in to these fads and joined Facebook a couple of months ago. It's easy enough to use, loads of people are on it, has a fairly uncomplicated layout and some handy applications.
Then there's mySpace.
Hated it when people gave me their mySpace site and all I got blasted with was some crazy-ass music and complex backgrounds which mean you can't read the text on the site.
Anyhow, swore I would never even touch the thing with a bargepole... until a few weeks ago when I actually looked into it. It ain't all that bad, there's photo galleries, a blog function and loads of people are on it too. So went ahead and made one of those, if only to have some pics somewhere online for people to look at.
Chose a very unimaginative name, but it serves the purpose. So if you want to have a look at some pics of my random doings (as I've removed the other galleries a while a go), then have a look HERE!

Pouring rain, nothing to do... yeah, I know it sounds all dreary and boring.
But somehow I've managed to while the days away this week.

Can't work as I managed to hack my index finger nail on-board the aircraft.
First time I manage to harm myself on-board. Luckily it happened before our passengers boarded the jumbo-jetto in Tokyo, so a girl could be called off standby, me sent to the clinic to be attended to, and then stay an extra night in Japan. (Have I mentioned that I love Japan?)

So what does one do on days like these (when the rain's pouring, the Thames is flooding and there's noting on telly)?... well.

-eat dried mangoes (to the point of giving oneself a stomachache and accompanying gas)
-think of ways to save the environment
-drink copious amounts of green tea (both hot and cold)
-eat licorice
-iron a dozen shirts

-and watch Ross the Intern's Talky-Blogs!
I discovered this a few months ago, and whenever I feel like I have no aim in life or simply cannot be asked to do anything important I turn to Ross.
I just love the way he goes on about stuff and things in general that have no real importance to most people, but somehow manages to make it sound interesting and worth listening to/watching. Luckily his installments come in 6-10 minute lengths, so they're purrfect for a little pickmeup when you feel lost and aimless (again, don't know if that's a word or not!).

I've decided to go home (apparently that's Iceland) tomorrow morning, I'd rather be bored there than in England. At least I'll have my mummy to cook for me :)

Korean Air have truly achieved what every airline wants from a uniform, which is when their crew walk through airports around the world people literally stop what they are doing and stare...

Awfully impractical, but who cares when you look like that?

It's been a while.
Taihen moshiwake gozaimasen.

This time last year I was in Baku, getting all excited about the Eurovision Song Contest, trying to get the crew to stay up all night to watch it (unsuccessfully I might add), although I had a great time myself prancing and dancing around my room at the Hyatt.
A different story this year, although just as enjoyable (if not more), as I actually had company to watch the has-been-extravaganza.
Maybe I'm getting older or something, or just losing interest, but I didn't even bother about listening to any of the entries beforehand this year, or even make a point of watching the semi-finals. Needless to say Iceland didn't make it through to the final, haven't even heard the song, but with a singer that looks like a troll (we're talking about a natural occuring troll-lookalike, nothing like the hideous costumed things from Finland, thant don't even have a REAL make-up artist!), there wasn't a chance in the first place. And for the first time, I really don't give.
Kudos to the Serbian girl though, who trucked her way through right to the top.
I wonder who's going to be next year's winner
...humm, maybe Tadjikistan?
That's, like, in Europe, isn't it?

I'd like to share something with you... and I mean it, as I've only just discovered a button called "moderate comments" on this blogger thing, and realised that people actually read this. I am truly humbled and honored, and from now on will try my very best to share bits and pieces of my random doings.

Have indeed spent 2 months of this year in a fantabulous country called Japan.
As expected I had a truly amazing time, and while there, managed to fulfill my life-long ambition of visiting the shrine of everything I hold to be true and holy in this world.
A pilgrimage that can be compared to nothing else on this earth. Something well and truly enilghtening and fulfilling at the same time.
A visit to:

Sanrio Puroland.

The shrine to her feline highness Hello Kitty and her mignions.
