Those of you that actually read my journal will know that I was going out with a girl from Slovakia for quite a long time, and that we broke up right after I moved to Italy. We haven't really kept in touch, but out of the blue she emailed me on New Years saying that she was sorry for not being contact and announced that she was ready to have me over for a visit. Of course I haven't seen her in 2 years and I miss her a bit, and I was meant to go to Slovakia in 2007 but it fell through. So I thought why the hell not and I'm going over for a week at the end of the month.

I am going to be in Kosice, which is not anywhere near anywhere, but that's ok sometimes getting away from big cities and stuff is needed. Like usual, if anyone has any good recommendations of what to see and do let me know, but no worries if you don't.

Apart from dodging psychotic women for the last month, life has been good. I spent Christmas in South Africa where it was stupidly hot. It was slightly disappointing to return to the UK and snow and -3 :( but I have been keeping myself occupied. Most of the time I have been catching up on my comics and graphic novels.

Recently I've read:
Y: The Last Man
Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art
The Boys
Freak Angels
X - Men (of course)

I've also gone on a spending spree and have bought a number of useless commodities, such as 10 t-shirts from the U.S. A second hand intuos2 wacom pad (large one for Ł30) a really crap blackberry and THE MOST AWESOME KEYBOARD IN THE WORLD.

Which is of course a Microsoft Natural Elite, which is only sold in the U.S. but I found it on ebay <3 The reason I love it so much is because it's got a fantastic numpad, which are my wasd keys.

Should receive it tomorrow *glee*.
