iphone: the new way of telling someone how good you are.

I know it's probably totally normal, but does anyone else find the little message "sent from my iphone" that you get at the end of an email from someone's iphone a little unnecessary? I mean, to be honest, I don't need to know. I'll just read your email. It doesn't bother me where you sent it from. Or is it more important that you let me know you have an iphone... and that you're using it... to send me an email... when you could have used a computer...
...but you didn't use a computer... you used your iphone... because you have an iphone... which is quite expensive... probably better than the computer I'm reading this on... not like your iphone... which you own... iphone...

This message was typed from my computer.

...Cause I have a computer.

Saturday Rugby

Scored a try on the weekend for my rugby team by bursting into flyhalf off the back of a ruck. Some would say I was out of position. I would say it was the perfect spot for a second rower to be. "Space" Housten would have been proud. As you can imagine the crowd went mental. Please note I have refrained from posting any photos where my legs are visible for fear of someone bringing a lawsuit against this blog for inflicting inhuman and degrading treatment upon an unsuspecting internaut.

Egypt: Alhamdulillah

Egypt: A spot of hot air ballooning at dawn

Probably the most romantic thing I have ever done for Valentine's day. All I need now is a girlfriend.

Egypt is calling...

Let Paris in Seine melt, and the wide arch
Of the rang'd empire fall! Here [Egypt] is my space,
Kingdoms are clay; our dungy earth alike
Feeds beast as man. . . .

Antony And Cleopatra Act 1, scene 1, 29–36

Two days to go before the inaugural Board Meeting between four best friends. We haven't been in the one place together for at least three years. We've chosen to meet up in Cairo. It will be epic. Expect some photos to come.
