    Default A (yellow) Bear in Borneo

    Well, as you'd expect, I don't have any exciting and interesting photos from our curtailed holiday in Borneo but I'll stick a few pics on here just as a token gesture.

    Well, I was going to post the rest of them but now the photo manager won't work for me. I probably broke it with my naff photos and it decided it would spare you the rest.

    And a few more including 2 of the yellow person that I've recently become. Those were taken today as a memento before my op. Looks like I've got a healthy suntan but it's the bile that's built up in my body. I think my face also shows the rigours of the condition, as I don't think I usually look quite that haggard. Dark circles under my eyes don't really become me. Bruise on left arm crease is the remains of the blood test I had in Borneo. Excuse the state of my hair but I'm saving washing it until tonight so it's fresh to go to the hospital in the morning. I like to look my best when I'm going under the knife, even if I'm a funny shade of yellow.

    Ah, the lesser spotted Yellow Bear. A true marvel of nature.

    You certainly are yellow. Too bad it wasn't simply from Tan-in-a-bottle.
    I should look so good in a bikini, but I gave those up in my teens.

    Yes ... we are all envious. Not only of how wonderful Borneo looks (who normally thinks of going to Borneo?) but how well you wear a bikini!!!

    What a shame it was to shorten your holiday. Do hope the op has gone well and that you recovery is quick.
