do de do

It's nice to know that music still works as my escape from the world.

I wish my office door still locked from the inside so I could have a nap on my couch. 6 hours and 45 mins of work to go... I should go for a run

Me and my gadgets

Yes me and my gadgets... Ever since the new Lumix TZ3 was announced I have wanted to upgrade to it from my current TZ1. After getting all sad about how it wasn't out here yet and nobody in NZ had a date for me, I looked at this US site (that appears to be quite popular amongst camera buying individuals) and realised they did international shipping. As soon as I did the currency conversion (including the large international shipping charge) I realised I would save myself approx $300 getting it sent over. Therefore, yes I have ordered it. 3-5 days shipping time apparently. Wicked.

Okay, you may now all comment about how sad I am etc but I saved $300 so :P

I hate daylight savings

I'm very grouchy this morning. This is what happens when you wake up at 6.30am instead of 7.30am and then can't get back to sleep because it is way too light outside. I usually leave at around 8am and it's usually slowly getting light. But no this morning it was midday type brightness. Hence I am very, very, very, very, very grouchy. The lights are not getting turned on in my office - it's far too bright.

So Round the Bays... I came, I saw, I ran (most of the time) and was done within an hour. That was the goal. Not bad for a first-timer and considering I don't usually run such distances.

I've just started reading King Lear in French. Should keep me occupied for awhile. Getting it into English is generally the easier part. Understanding the English... Let's just say it's been awhile since Bursary English and my Shakespeare skills aren't what they used to be :P

What's the haps?

well, not a lot that I'm aware of...

In two weeks I will be doing Round the Bays. Should be fun.

It sucks that everywhere I look there are airfares on special. I really wanna go but going alone doesn't sound like much fun to me.

Toru and I are off to the Coromandel for a couple of days over easter. Going to do some kayaking and probably sit around in cafes (what we do best).

Bivouac is having a sale at the moment so I finally, finally got the t-shirt I have wanted for a long time. It's red and has the now non-existent 2c coin on it. When unsuccessfully searching for a picture I discovered that they now also have one of the old 10c coins on one. Oh yeah, and they're made by Chalkydigits so I can say I supported buy NZ made.

I really should get my VCR fixed. I don't know why I'm avoiding it. Maybe it's because I hate spending money on such things.
