Woohoo! Your blog rocks! It’s such fun to get such a ringside seat in your adventures.
Just yesterday, Elsie was asking me if they raise Tower Bridge while cars are on it. I boldly guessed no.
Quelle domage that the album doesn’t work. Ihug – ptooey! I’ll see what I can do to fix it forthwith.
In the meantime, keep up the good fun.
Tonight the album features our new home to be (not with our furniture, right?) at 466A Durham St North. One block from Bealey Ave, 20 minutes walk to the Square, ten to the nearest cluster of cafes. Features from “critical” include quiet street, cat ok, dishwasher, bath, good sun, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, character (well I think so), warm (enough) and two living areas (just). From “desirable”, it has garden, indoor/outdoor flow, garage (double) and two storey. We’ll go for heat pump and swimming pool (for Elsie) next time.
Here is cousin Cam’s Turf Equipment site. Go, Cam. Damn good for a first website. Leslie has the cool Dressupasaurus where you can buy groovy animal suits for kids.
And here is Karl’s Cactuslab.
Elsie finally persuaded me to watch Shrek. As Doc said: No, I’m sure of it…
A little while ago, at Kaye and Paul’s 20th anniversary, we were treated to private performances by Minisnap and Pine.
Kaye’s voice is the centrepiece of Minisnap, with an experienced south island sound in support. I enjoyed Pine’s restrained lightness and earnest whimsy. I like
Hannah and Aaron Beehre’s paintings, too.
Sarah Spears was visiting. Between them, the Spears Girls knew more people at the party than I did.
Here are some pictures of the folks descended from Jane’s grandfather Laurence Kirk.
So the Israelis busted applying for NZ passwords online with foreign-sounding accents (we’re so ‘e’) were doing it to get Al Quaeda. Well, that makes it alright, then? Er, no.
Who says ‘Al’ even exists? If GW is, as CTHEORY suggests, a simulacrum (akin to Chauncey Gardiner in Being There), then maybe Osama is a Kaiser Soze-style construction, convenient to drape our fears and prejudices on?
Ah Martin, how cool you are blogging your OE. Great to hear tales of London. Reminds me of being ten and touring the tube, when you could. Happy Travels!
Scene One: You Watch the Movie for the First Time
Initially, you are glad that nobody has spoiled this movie, tho you know there’s a twist.
The Movie plays like a nice relationship drama. People, close but isolated find connection with each other. It’s a ghost movie, and the connections people find with them facilitate their learning relationship development.
Scene Two: You Discover the Twist
Ouch, you think. How could I have missed those obvious clues when I knew there was a revelation coming? How clever this movie is to pull off this trick each time.
Scene Three: You Go Over the Movie Again
Maybe you’re not so stupid after all. How many people could live together for a year or so without realising something like that?
