I get all competitive around boys. Sadly when we’re up the mountain for my first day of the season, and the boy in question is a professional ski guide on Mt Cook and has worked a season as a field guide in Antarctica, i.e. probably the best skier that I’ve ever met, then this is …

I have Rick-Mouthitis
I can’t believe I said half the things that I said last night, but had Rick been there, he’d have said them instead, so its all his fault. Anyway, good party, managed to get off train at Pukerua Bay, fell over on stairs in our bungalow, crashed out, to be ready for skate hockey game …
And that’s what three hundred CDs looks like. Includes much Orb and reminded me how good Utah Saints were. That near-solid lump of plastic weights 5 kg. The rippage almost compensated for the postage. Yes, I’ve updated twice in less than 24 hours. The world could well be ending.

A case of happyinmotion complex is characterized by a constant impersonation of Hitler.To cure happyinmotion, relay all conversation through Mr. Winkels, a stuffed animal made from your own belly button lint. Name? Anyway, I’m just off to pick a fight with the Soviet …
Its a shirt
And sadly, its too big for me, hence it will not form part of the Shirt Tax.

That turned out rather fun in the end. So here’s some pics of the scary Putney squat, now that it is no more. I have sweets and presents. I also have jetlag. So see yous at some point.
So I’m in the UK
Or to be strictly correct, I’m in the UK, ARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! So yes, its great to see certain people and there are Old Things.

Now there’s a scary thought, that there could be more than one of them.
So I’ve just written a paper on scientists in places like AgResearch, HortResearch, ESR, etc… And one of my points is that they have very low morals. OOOPS! I mean very low morale. Am I glad I got someone to check over what I wrote? Am I more glad that they are substantially less retarded …
Some serious shopping
Okay, okay, deep breaths, trying to remain calm. We just bought a section*. Up in Brooklyn, down a cul-de-sac, north facing, big macrocarpa, steep, quiet, cozy. Exactly what we want and what its taken us a year to find. Currently wondering if the macrocarpa we’ll probably have to take out can be milled and used …
