It's easy to lose your blogging mojo. This has happened a few times to me as well - most because of burnout.

Dear Layla -- My condolences to you! So sorry -- David was a lovely guy. He had a great sense of humor, a real zest for living, and such an adventurer. Also an avid golfer -- we had some nice outings with him at the Joburg country club. We were so shocked to hear of his passing; he had overcome a lot in the last few years, knee surgeries, various criminal/unfortunate events, and so on; yet he seemed to just pick himself up and push on without a hitch. It's still hard to believe -- he was such a force of nature. Best wishes to you in your quest to know more about him. Fondly, e

Just found your blog whilst doing some google searches. David was my grandad, you were lucky to have known him, unfortunately I was never able to meet him. It's nice to know that he was a good man. I search around for his name sometimes to see what comes up. Unfortunately we weren't told he was gone till after the funeral.

My mum is his daughter from his first marriage, is there anywhere else in your blog where I could find out about him?

Wouldn't it be brilliantly ironic if this comment unexpectedly reminded you of a post you wrote about two years ago?
I couldn't resist commenting. I've been going through Mr London Street's archives, as he's one of the best bloggers I've ever known, and found this post by way of his "That Was The Week That Blogged" mention. You're the second person I've read who's ever been able to make second-person "work", the first being Mr London Street, and that is so very impressive to me that you were able to make me relate even though I'm only 16 and therefore do not have 41-year-old memories like you speak of. Bravo.
A quick peak at your archives tells me you've probably stopped blogging a while ago, but allow me still to follow you so that I will get round to going through your old posts once I'm done with MLS's and my exams. :)

I read the blurb on her new book last week. Feeling a little nauseated I put it back and realised why I didn't buy the first one either.

Patricia Cornwell books? Given that I am quite squeamish about criminal gore in reality I actually enjoyed the Scarpetta ones. I'll take all of these and you can have the Gabriel GM ones.

I totally thought all things Christian were illegal in China too. I thought you could only get into Christian churches if you showed a passport. Curious...

>"I was having some serious baggage heft issues"

When we went out to China in December 2005, http://jimroberts.phanfare.com/2042568 our baggage was already overweight as we left UK. We had to get help from the others in our party to 'spread the load'. Our main rule was 'We buy nothing that can't be shipped!'

Patricia Cornwell is incredibly peculiar. I'd have been tempted to take it to stop anyone else having to endure her.

I read an Anita Shreve novel recently. I just assumed I was in the wrong demographic.

Hurrah to see you back, seems an age. You can always open a museum for dual-language bibles on your return. Have to get something useful from them.

2010-06-27T13:29:58.893-05:00

At last! I've found someone who thinks "Eat, Pray, Love" was the worst book to hit cult status in 20 years and Elizabeth Gilbert sounds like the whiny person you don't want to sit next to on a long airplane ride. Guess that makes us a club of two.

2010-06-27T01:49:04.891-05:00

Nice to see you've resurfaced, Miss E! But... Elizabeth Gilbert 'prettier than you'? Unless you've had a horribly disfiguring car crash (which hasn't made it to the blog yet), then I don't think so.

Really very relavant artical with the topic it is good work. http://www.translation.pk

2010-06-22T16:45:29.976-05:00

Love it. I love that you took the photos and that the place was so grim. Sooo funny!


(I know this post is ancient but MLS just retweeted an old post about hotels and you put the link to this in your comment. I never saw this at the time...)






Hope to have you back soon.

I'm shocked you contemplated removing more than the shower gel and soap.

Love this story.

I don't think the Gideons would mind at all.

2010-05-11T09:19:05.684-05:00

It's true -- I've been embarrassed everywhere by my ignorance, the moreso because so often locals are amazed when "you didn't know that?" Makes me wish I had a better memory, certainly!

On the other hand, life is always genuinely interesting because there's new material to learn. How dull it would be if that weren't the case!
