Sarah and I are now back from our delayed honeymoon in Egypt. We had, to put it simply, an utterly marvellous time, and are now talking vaguely about when we go back (although it won't be for another couple of years or so, at least. But it's going to happen).

For anyone as is interested, I'm in the process of uploading various pictures of the holiday and a diary/blog which I wrote as we went along. It can be found here. Caution - very picture-heavy, probably not particularly good if you've got dial-up.

Other stuff - am predictably a tad disappointed by the election non-result, although at least last night's HIGNFY election special was a good laugh.

I've been catching up on various bits of TV since I got back to Sarah's place (which will be also my place after next weekend). Loved this Kwik Fit ad that I found in the break of a FlashForward episode:

(Incidentally, what's happened to the old FlashForward Blackberry sponsorship thing with Hermione Norris doing the voiceover? I miss it!)

Caught up with Doctor Who today, and...Matt Smith just gets better and better, in my opinion. He's managing to capture some interesting nuances to the character, including a large chunk of righteous indignation and sometimes out-and-out anger. I can definitely see why Steven Moffat (and the other producers/executives) wanted to cast him. He's definitely My Doctor (but, splended chaps, all of them). Looking forward to next week's episode - that's one seriously tantalising trailer! Similarly, Ashes to Ashes is hotting up as we head for the finale. I hope it pays off the expectations of Life on Mars, thought.

ETA: Oh, and speaking of Egypt, have a Two Ronnies sketch:
