You haven't posted for nearly 3 months smiley - yikes


Hope life is treating you well smiley - ok Stop by for a chat if you get the chance.

Kia Ora!

'Being here' and 'posting' are not necessarily mutually inclusive activities smiley - winkeye

I do lurk - although for little more than a few fleeting minutes per week.

About a fortnight ago I had a look at your convo list but, as I knew little and had even less in the way of time to read the b*ckl*g, it was a fairly fruitless exercise in terms of rekindling any need/want to become less-than-dormant

Hope all is swell with you


I'll be back smiley - smiley

smiley - cool

I know that feeling. After a lot of small/medium absences this year when I struggled to keepp up with the backlog, neve mind the general gist of the place, I'm in a rather busy hootoo time again, mostly in the Forum and Ask, occasional visits to PR.

But I think of you every time something interesting happens in NZ and there's no-one here to talk to about it (like Brash!! smiley - biggrin Someone actually mentioned his demise via the Exclusive Brethren in a post as it had made the UK press).


I'm out of town for a month or so (in the dry hinterland, although the usual sarong weather hasn't happened yet smiley - zen), a mix of work and play (and hopefully some rest).

So... the unusual sarong weather has?





I'm still trying to figure out whether or not Brash out/Key in is a good thing for Aunty Helen et al

Key seems to have a knack for saying the right thing - although I v much doubt he believes/understands the real issues

You are on a post-dial-up connection now aren't you? If so, check out http://www.freshfm.net/downloads/JohnKey.mp3 from our local 'access' radio where Key says he "forgets which side he was on in '81... it was a long time ago..."

Oops, I meant to say that in the singular (and spell it correctly). But I've just confirmed that it no longer passes the filter.

Hope you didn't think I was posting to you, although I suppose there was a certain sequitur from the Keys link smiley - ok


I used the word dhead several times a while back and it posted ok the first few times but eventually failed the filter. I guess the filter referral system sent it on to the mods (presumably they have a list of penis synonyms and they're on the look out for composite word), who sent it upstairs and it was added to the filter.

smiley - rolleyes

There's a bit of a kerfuffle going on from one of the forum threads (Veil/Cross) where Edward's been given a warning for calling people racist (in a thread discussing racism). Apparently it's slander in the UK, or at least the Eds are getting a legal opinion smiley - weird I'm beginning to think those Brits who say the place has gone mad are right.



I'm on dailup for a month, so haven't listened to the Keys' link. Is it worth it?


But I did have occasion to get my unusual sarong out the other day smiley - biggrin

Hello!

Well, that month has passed already...

Are you home now?

How's the sarong? feeling neglected?

Good to see you about and about, and thanks for the best laugh of the day in the t-shirt thread smiley - biggrin

I'm wearing my sarong right now as it happens. And I even had a swim the other day! Plus we saw the comet which was pretty cool. Pretty luck too as it's the only clear night we've had in ages.

I should be home next week. I got a bit sidetracked on the way home but not for too much longer hopefully.

I have to go into town for groceries this afternoon. Damn.

What's up up your way? Did you get a holiday? How's the anklebiter?

Great to see you, too! Busy as ever I see smiley - winkeye

<< the best laugh of the day >>
Glad to be of service smiley - biggrin
However, I must admit that I posted that more in seriousnessnessness than in humour - cos Qantas really have helped raise the issue of Shrub being a terrorist

Not seen the comet - too many hazy nights... both meteor- and oenologically speaking smiley - winkeye

I have yet to have a real (ie sustained) break this so-called-summer, planning a week on a (nearby) beach mid Feb with the aforementioned 'anklebiter' - who is now tall enough to bite elbows smiley - bigeyes V V inquistive physically and verbally keen to try anything and then ask long, complex questions - heaps of fun being a big part of all that

Just in case you are around, can you have a look at this entry in PR on poi and let me know what you think A20776412

I've made some suggestions, but am still uncomfortable with the whole thing of poi being this modern thing almost divorced from its origins. Not that I can do anything about that, but how h2g2 presents it is another matter.

Oh gawd... where do I start?

I read the entry

I reckon it's in need of a shed-load of w*rk before being considered 'finished'

However, in my opinion, it (along with countless other guide entries) does NOT need to be written at all, simply because the info is already 'out there' on the net - indeed, it links to http://www.homeofpoi.com/articles/History_of_Poi_NewZealand.php , which - although riddled with typos - does tell a readable / engaging / informative story/history of poi, WITH an account from a 60 year-old Maori woman no less - something I v much doubt h2 will ever get

Anyhoo, hmmmm...

I'm v glad to see you holding up the 'no whitewash' banner... if you only enlighten one ignorant person - I suspect you have already acheived much more - that cultural imperialism is abhorrent, then you have done a good job smiley - ok

Hmmm... what else?

Not many postives re the entry, I'm afraid...

OK... enuff already

How are you? healthy? wealthy? wise? smiley - winkeye

Still h2-ing regularly-ish I gather (from a quick lurk on your PS)

Using email yet? If so, please let me know cos I would happily say much more without the world and it's dog looking on

Sometimes when I'm filling in time smiley - whistle I open Who's Online by ID to see how many researchers there are older than me. It's been a while since there's been someone there I've never come across, but tonight there is:

Dave Sidcup U209908

He apparently has another ID which he's written a few entries under. Do you know him? (I'm just being nosey really).

For some reason that reminds me of a Larson cartoon... something about deer in the woods with rifles watching deer hunters.

Hiya

are you EVER going to flick me an email?

I ask cos there have - over the years now - been many questions/ideas/etc times ill-suited to a public forum like this

Well.... the problem is that if I give you my email address you will want to send emails to it that presumably you will want me to reply to. Which I'd love to do, but I'm not well and have to be very protective of my energy at the moment. I feel bad enough about the number of times I don't reply adequately to people talking to me here on h2, with email it's much worse (meaning I'd feel bad about not keeping up).

So I won't say never, but not at the moment.


I've only just noticed the change in the subject line smiley - laugh I have a friend who does that when he addresses snailmail - you get the oddest enveloppes smiley - biggrin Unfortunately he's even worse than me at corresponding smiley - zen

Hiya!

Are you up early or late?

Get well soon!

>> you will want to send emails to it that presumably
>> you will want me to reply to

Replies would be good... but, like this thread, I'd be quite patient smiley - smiley

>> a friend who does that when he addresses snailmail - you
>> get the oddest enveloppes

Reminds me of a story on the radio a while back re two siblings, one here, one in the UK, who have been 'recycling' the same two Xmas and birthday cards and their respective envelopes for years and years

smiley - laugh I've been known to recycle xmas and birthday cards, but that's taking it to whole new heights. Brilliant.

I couldn't sleep last night. Really odd, I didn't feel tired at all and none of the usual make myself sleep tricks worked. Needless to say I'm quite tired now smiley - erm (I did get 4 hours in the end).

I need an externally linked image of a pavlova with sliced kiwifruit on top for my guide entry. I want something that shows classic NZ use of the kiwifruit. Tell me which of these you think is the best:
