the countdown to my trip to kenya is officially on. only four days to go! the forecast suggests it will be rain and thunderstorms the whole time we are there, but i am only going to take that as a suggestion and politely suggest in return that we may have some sun... please?
also, and this is the best part, on of my best friends sara jane is going to fly out from toronto and meet me in nairobi! once i'm done working, me, sara jane, and eve (who is also travelling to kenya for work) will take a few days to go to mombasa. i actually can't wait.
so coming back to london from my mum's house didn't prompt too much end-of-holiday-despair because i'm off again in a few days!! even if it is mostly for work, who cares, it's AFRICA!
last night adam and i went to the tabernacle in notting hill to see the staves play again. i've mentioned the staves before, they really are amazing. while their ep's are really good, they simply do not do them justice - seeing them live is a breathtaking experience. i think it has something to do with their harmonies.
while sitting at my desk stressing, this popped up on my tweetdeck alert: i saw the words panda cam and immediately clicked on the link, i just couldn't help it! the rest of my day, whenever i felt stressed, i sat and watched a baby panda up a tree for a few moments. i highly recommend this technique for alleviating stress in the work place, baby pandas have often been noted for their medicinal and sopporiphic qualities ;)
here's the link to panda heaven.
