Q for the Wellington people: are 1 year fixed term rentals in Wgtn are the norm these days? Bit of an arse if so, coz our new house is going to take anything from six months to two years to build, so long fixed terms are a pain.

So when I said to ferlengheti that she looked very Catholic for a moment, really I meant that she looked wickedly Catholic for a moment. Anyway, here’s a sweet, ethereal, acoustic version of Niggaz With Attitudes’ folk classic “Straight Outta Compton“. NSFW, unless you work popping gats in da crib, or other such employment.

If you want to go real fast, its got to be nuculeah. And if someone says that its technically feasible, now might be a good time to run screaming for the hills.

I find myself most amused, despite the remnants of last night’s festivities, by my current reading, that of the novel “Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell”. It is most pleasantly tolerable, by which, I should explain, I mean to say that it is quite remarkably good. Similarly, I was pleased to discover that, as a result …
