Because I very rarely blog in a diary form, I figured I would give a brief update of the more interesting things I've done this year. This is mostly but not entirely because I like writing lists.

- I went to the Philippines with a beautiful Scandinavian nudist. We spent most of it island hopping around deserted beaches, snorkelling through coral reserves and eating. It was great.

- I bought an adorable little tortoise called Sophie. She's tiny and amazing. She just proved once and all her theological alliegences by doing her bi-weekly poop on top of a Matthew Henry's Bible Commentary.

- Kat got me a job in H Samuel with her, which is oddly fun. It's fuelled an obsession with jewellery which is taking up a worrying amount of my life. Jake works there too now which is ace.

- Rob and I reached our one year going-out-anniversary. The celebrations involved steak, cake and Star Trek, which makes us very cool.

- I've toyed with the idea of getting dreadlocks for months, and have decided against it. However, if work is ok with it, I might dye my hair purple.

- I've personally caused all of the world's environmental problems by going on 17 flights in 12 months, which makes another fun list because it makes me look interesting.

And planned for the New Year:

This is one of the many reasons why I don't have as much money as I'd like.
