A quick turnaround
Today, I'm very impressed with Justin. Impressed and grateful. He got me back my draft within a week or so of receiving the final draft. Given that it is a weighty document, it is an incredible effort.
Sunday night, I had the pleasure of Di, Chris and Colin's company for dinner, and caught up with J and Rebecca before dinner. It was nice to be able to catch up with my friends before leaving. I'm not going to go into the evening in too much detail, but one thought which crossed my mind, given that I probably won't see them again for some time, is where do you draw the line between friends and acquaintances. One place I thought of was how quickly you pass back into normal conversation after being away for a while. You know - how when you see someone you haven't seen for a while, you either sort-of uncomfortably ummm... ask them what they're doing now and really err... struggle for conversation. While with a friend you just ask them the pleasantries and move on to the sorts of things you normally talk about with your friends.
My favourite procrastinations
The Head Heeb - Jonathan provides a balanced view on various Israeli and (former) colonial states in less developed regions of the world.
The Bladder - a sports satire site. Well worth a look.
