Island Life: In another league,
I don't know what to make of this case really. I think admitting to "a bit of alcohol" problem is the very least of Tea's problems! I am sorry but all the righteous indignation that is being spouted from that camp this morning leaves me cold.
But what really makes me put my head in my hands and feel very dispirited are the partners of these men, not only Ropati, but Shollum, Shipton, McNamara and Rickards. I mean what are they thinking?
What are they thinking? I just don't understand.
Southerly: In Praise of Arthur,
I loathe going to the hairdresser, because damn it they never listen to what you say half the time. I always instruct, look I don't do hairdryers, I don't do product, and I don't live to faff about with my hair everyday, so give me something I don't have to worry about. Typically then they will say, I have just the style for you, honestly all you do is hang your head over and dry your hair upside down, then a little bit of this and a little bit of that and voila. Even after following these instructions diligently, my voila always hints at an unfortunate encounter with electricity. And I never go back to that particular hairdresser again.
So, to avoid the hairdresser I grew my hair longer last year, but after my close friend went on and on about woman of mumble mumble age not suiting long hair I trudged back to the hairdresser. And, had a disasterous cut there. So bad that when I walked out of hairdressers I found myself in the shopping centre, crying.
Now I am not in the least bit prone to crying at "real life" but show me a TV ad, movie, book, play a song, open a supermarket or take me to a funeral and I can bawl at the drop of a hat. I often joke that I could be a professional mourner at funerals, I am totally hopeless, even at the funerals of the most casual acquaintance. That can be a little embarrassing when after the service someone comes up to you and says "oh you poor dear how long have you known blah blah" " ummm errrr I only met them once, they are friend of a friend" and then back comes the loaded "ohhhhhhh????"
So here I am crying at my RUINED hair and thinking this is silly, I don't really care about my hair this much do I? And then having to pay $60 to get it fixed up, but it does look cute now and best of all I don't have to fanny about with it.
Cracker: Poke Me, Bite Me, Add Me,

Shame on you and David, there is ONLY one Mr Darcy, one do you hear, and it is Colin Firth. And the BBC version of P&P is the only one worth seeing IM (not so bloody) HO !

re Flight of the Conchords
Noted, watched and enjoyed it yesterday, thanks.
Random Play: Nothing, if not critical,
Thanks for the that Stephen, have been reading Giovanni Fazio this am, you are right he is entertaining etc. I am delighted upon reading his second review on that link that the wonderful Wong Kar Wai has a new movie out.
My fave film reviewer is Mark Kermode. A good film review written by someone whose opinion I have learnt to trust will always make me go to films that I otherwise would have been in two minds about.
What scares me about the Kiwisaevr scheme is that it is not govt guarranteed.
Don't join then - no-one is forcing you to.
As a wage or salary earner it really makes no sense financially to remain in NZ vis-a-vis Australia unless you have to care for a sick relative or something (and don't give me no vague, BS notions of "lifestyle" otherwise). Only by delivering more income to employees will NZ be able to compete for workers with the skills to pay the national billz.
Gee who would have thought that lifestyle was a BS concept. I would say that lifestyle is the best reason, I love NZ it is my home, I was educated here, I feel at peace here, it is me. But now you tell me that is utter bullshit, being happy is crap. Oh well
Enjoy Australia Marcus!
Yep me too. Would be mad to not get in on it now. I was pleasantly surprised by the replies on Checkpoint. Too good to miss out on
OMG Craig please stop with the funnies I can't stand it.
