Random photos. Why don't I post any?


The lit courtyard of a shopping mall. Sure, it's a mall, but the lights are oh-so-pretty! - Haikou, Hainan, South China. January 2008

Tomb of Hairu - Haikou, January 2008

Pathway into Evergreen Park - Haikou, January 2008 - Reminds me of warmer times...

The weather outside is frightful

So, the economy sucks, politics still springs up scandals like there's no tomorrow on both side of the Atlantic, it's frickin' freezing outside and I'm piled up with so much work that I may as well NOT have a 'reading week'.

But it snowed yesterday! Albeit rather briefly, and settling only enough to amass a depth of about an inch. But still, it did bring a smidgen of magic to my otherwise rather mundane lifestyle. Spending the day doing Practical Legal Research is hardly an engrossing use of the hours. But ah well, has to be done! But I should really go on a walk soon or something. All I'm currently seeing of London is the inside of restaurants and bars, and on occasion tube carraiges and buses. But it's so damn cold...

Also, the new James Bond film is coming out! I'm actually rather excited about this: I rewatched Casino Royale a few days ago and forgot how polished and slick it is! Daniel Craig will never be my Bond, Goldeneye is still my favourite and so by extension Pierce Brosnan.

In the last month, my playlist of new music has been dominated by:
- Kina Grannis = recently signed up-and-coming acoustic singer/songwriter... this is fast becoming the bread-and-butter of my music taste, isn't it?
- Kings of Leon = SO much better than the last album!
- Jimi Hendrix = fine, not really NEW music, but I'm rediscovering him!
