  • Taking the plunge with Gravity

    The address where my exam was being held. It was a professional exam, ie not at a university. I thought I remembered it was on the Terrace somewhere (in Wellington), but was so flustered that I couldn't remember where the Terrace was, despite living in Wellington for a few years! I must have looked a sight hurriedly rushing around the streets holding a stack of books sweating profusely and looking hopelessly lost. Managed to spot someone else I vaguely recognised from my class and followed them. Arrived 20 minutes late but thankfully ended up passing the exam. Don't know how.

  • Signed Dan Carter - Jockey Modal's

    It's got to be his consistent performance throughout the whole 2005 Lions tour. I'd give you examples of a particular game but my wife and I had our first child during the tour and it's all a bit of a blur... but didn't stop me from watching the games of course, even if it was in the maternity ward (!). He just played so well, and still does of course. He tackles well, is a calm goal-kicker, and has a real knack for finding the holes in the defensive line. Good on him for staying on here until after the next world cup. He's one our all time greats. More about Signed Dan Carter - Jockey Modal's

    Certainly explains a few things! Why did I have to read that so close to all the Christmas parties. More about The real effects of alcohol on your body

  • World's most expensive...

    Just trying to work out why anyone would put (inedible) diamonds in a fruit cake. Because they can, I suppose. Seems a waste to me. More about World's most expensive...

  • Going to the moon in a spaceship, almost

    Last post: R on 14.03.11 at 01:47 | Started by R on 03.08.10

    It's funny how easy it is to live in (or near) a place and never do the touristy things. I haven't been to the Waitomo Caves either (on the "must-do" list, and now you have inspired me). But I have done the Rotorua bubbly mud thing. It's a must-do for the kids. And there is actually a few free places to see them (the grounds by the hospital - and they have a public pool to bathe your feet in there too) and the thermal walk around by Lake Rotorua. Take the kids. What you may think is ho-hum will probably get a much more enthusiastic reaction from the anklebiters! More about Going to the moon in a spaceship, almost

  • Escape Showcase: Rarotonga Part 2

    Last post: R on 14.03.11 at 01:47 | Started by Nos4R2D2 on 24.03.10

    It seems only yesterday that I was sipping a cold beer at Sails Restaurant overlooking Rarotonga's breathtaking Muri Beach. I've been there 3 times - it ticks all the boxes for me... heaps of things to do, it's beautiful and the locals are amazing. This guy is right about the scooters (a must do). Also essential to go to the Saturday market for fruit (especially paw paw) and veges. Local stuff is best, and heaps cheaper than the restaurants. More about Escape Showcase: Rarotonga Part 2
