No Sign

If you get the chance to watch some of the Mandela memorial speeches, do watch out for the sign language interpreter. I was a bit puzzled watching him do almost nothing, and none of it meaningful, so I was reassured today to find he seems to have been a complete fraud (no shit, Sherlock) and no one knows quite how he got the gig. Even upstages the selfie Obama let himself get into, much to Michelle's disgust.

Death of a Hero

I cannot let the death of Nelson Mandela pass without comment. His inspirational life should be something we all wish to emulate in our own small way, though few of us would have his courage and perseverance. Given the state of the world we could certainly do with his help right now. I wish I believed in an afterlife where his spirit still exists.

I spent many years boycotting South African produce in the supermarket and signing petitions outside South Africa House. It all seems so small now.

Identity Crisis

I think it's true to say that we did not in general like Season 8. But there's no denying how enticing those curls were.
