Back in town

OK, gotta make this quick:

20th Dec:
Said goodbye to Mel at the airport – she was flying to Christchurch. Caught the train to Paraparamu, Dad picked me up and we went to Otaki.

Xmas Day – saw my cousins at my grandparents place – was cool. Dinner was late because my cousins were late, and Dad got completely trashed from drinking and not eating.

29th December:
Dad and I drove to Napier. Went to the cricket with Stuart, my brother. Was pretty neat. Dad stays the night, leaves the next day.

New Years Eve:
Mum and I went up town for a drink. Bumped into Wayne, an aquantance of mine from my NCMT days. Fireworks, was a very good night!

Caught up with Guru Bob at his place. Beer and burgers (thanks Linda!) and a GeneRally tourney. Bought GTA3 for PC from Bob for Stuart’s Birthday.

Saw Harry Potter with my Brother – was pretty cool.

5th: Stuart and I get a ride to Palmerston North with my Mum, meet up with Dad, we buy clothes, and drive on to Otaki.

7th: Dad, Stuart and I drive to Wellington, go to Te Papa for an hour or so, lunch, my house, I discover Chris has bought a giant TV and DVD 5.1 surround sound system for his room, and Mark has bought an Xbox. Wow. Dad and Stuart depart back to Otaki. 7pm I get picked up by Mel’s flatmate Andrew (thanks Andy!) and we go to the airport to pick up Mel, we go to her place have dinner with her flatmates.

Live from Palmerston North, it’s FNORD!

Hi All, I’m typing from Tuatha’s parent’s house. Last night, madness ensued, and twas good. At Tuatha’s friends place there were about 40+ people who I didn’t know. The crowd managed to consume: 2x bottles of Vodka, 1x bottle of Tequila, 1x bottle of Glenfiddich Whisky, 1x bottle of Melon Liquior, 1x bottle of Port, and various other alcohols. I didn’t consume much (editors note from Tuatha: he was fucked totaly and utterly) till we went into town (Murphy’s Law for about 2 minutes, Harvesters, then Uno). Rob, one of Tuatha’s friend introduced me to the Blackjack – 1/2 Chartreuce, 1/2 Black Sambuca! Oh yeah! Niiiiiiiice combo. Tuatha attempted 21 shots of something called the Anti-shaker (Chartreuce, Triple Sec, Vodka, and ‘V’) – good stuff, but he had to share after 8… To his credit he did many more than 21 shots worth over the course of the night. After that we got in a car with someone who hadn’t been drinking and went through the gorge to Ballance Bridge and we screamed into the gale-force wind howling through the gorge. We took lots of photos. We’ll get them up when I get the new hosting.

I am not in charge of the garbage.

Walking through Manners Mall here in Beautiful Sunny Wellington and I’m waiting for the crosswalk signal to let me cross, and a journalist asks if I was in charge of the garbage, drawing my attention to the two huge black bags of garbage I’m standing right next to. Sitting on the corner of Wellington’s most popular intersection. Oozing radioactive goo. OK, so it’s probably not radioactive, but it was pretty foul none-the-less. So I was like, “No, I’m not in charge of the garbage”. So Wellington City Council, who’s in charge of the garbage?

On another point of me not being in charge of the garbage, for some reason, My friends will offer me their leftover bowls of ice cream, macaroni cheese, lasagna, and other type foods, expecting that I will eat it. I probably will, but I don’t like being seen as some human garbage disposal. I try to watch my weight, as much as everyone thinks otherwise.


On Sunday after church we got to go to someone’s place for a young adults lunch (thanks The Wilsons, I think). There were probably about 20 young adults there. Smileychris and I were both there just talking and I leaned back to put my drink down on a shelf behind me and there it was – a Cathedral board. I’d seen and read about this game at stores like Mindscapes, and some touristy stores, and was intrigued by it. For some reason Mr Wilson came over and taught Chris, myself, and a friend of mine called Green (most ppl call him Jay, but he’s not the Jay you people know as MonkeyJay) how to play. A fascinating game it is…
