Top 5 favourite places I've been:   1. the Norwegian fjords 2. the southern islands of Japan 3. the Åland Islands, Finland 4. the Hebrides, Scotland 5. the jungles of Kalimantan - unfortunately the areas I had the good fortune to work in when I was younger have almost certainly been bulldozed for palm oil plantations...   Top 5 cities I've visited or lived in:   1. Tokyo 2. Helsinki 3. Amsterdam 4. Lisbon 5. Venice (off season, it really can be as magical as...
Well, all I can say, having been away for a while and arriving back in the aftermath, is that the way he left was the most interesting thing about him. I never quite got the indulgence of such a boring persona (I can't speak for his personality iRL - he might be witty and wise in person) who didn't so much have multiple menswear problems which were fodder for interesting discussions, as just the same issue over and over and over again.

 Fitpix are serious business. But seriously, if I smile in photos I look sinister. It's sometimes really difficult to maintain a 'neutral' expression.
 That would indeed be horrible: AAAC horrible.
 I guess that this being self-inflicted just makes me even more out-of-date. Frankly, I'd rather stay that way...  ;)
