Merry Christmas and Bon Voyage

I'm writing from my cousin's pc in Nelson Bay (where my photo id here on the right was taken this time last year). My extended family migrates here for Christmas these days and I've just driven the 300km or so to get here. My cousins are night-owls like myself, and at 2.30am they're both up and about, as normal. I always feel right at home here. The Frenchman has gone back to France for Christmas, so we're spending it apart for the first time in years, and while he was still on his delayed flight home I was already missing him. Sad isn't it!?

Anyhow, tomorrow night after the festivities here, rather than stay a few days here in paradise I'm headed back home and thence to the airport because on Dec 26th both the Frenchman and I head to South Africa, from very different continents. I've been warned of mugging and personal theft/assault and I'm trying to mentally prepare for losing my cameras, phone, and the rest of my looks. I haven't backed up my phone contacts as the bloody pc connection thingie won't work for me, again, so if this is the last you hear of me - you know why. (That or I just decided that I didn't like you any more, and have made this post as an elaborate excuse).

I'm going to have a hard think about my plans for 2008 over my time away and the real value of continuing Superchilled (which I will update regardless, pending physical incapacity).

Help with my decision making by answering the final poll for this year...
Should Superchilled Stay, or Should it Go?

Regardless, I do wish you all a Fantastic Christmas & New Year. It's been a pleasure to have you on board. Thanks for persevering with me, my posts and my 12 Days of Christmas which is now so big it takes almost until 2008 to load.

Trevor, have a great Christmas and together with Sylvian a great New Year, which this year starts some 15 hours later then you're used to.

On Should Superchilled Stay, or Should it Go? there's only one person who can answer that... YOU!

In my humble opinion I hope you stay...

I agree with Peter. I only found Superchilled this year, but it is really up to you whether your blog is worth keeping up or not. I like to read it because it is intelligently written, we have lots in common, and you live in paradise. I hope you keep going with it. :)

That may possibly be the most leading wording in a poll ever. People may not want you to continue the blog anymore but may not want to tell you to go to hell.
Great way to skew the results in your favour.

Hey Thanks almost everyone for the words of encouragement - apart from anonymous2 who is disturbed by my sense of humour. My blog isn't a scientific journal and quite frankly I can lead it wherever I want. And I will, and frequently - so be forewarned. The year ahead is going to be turbulent and fantastic, so strap in - or take the exit with your parachute.

just seems a little strange to have a poll with three options if you only want people to pick one result.

Taking no prisoners?

Turbulent and fantastic?

But its boring and trivial already and its only Jan 2.

Keep going Miss/ Mrs/ Mr Annonymous. You've been the entertaining bit so far...
