Hi ho, hi ho

Work, that is, not visiting a red light district.  And definitely not working in a red light district!

I had my first 8 (and a quarter!) hour day today since September 2005.  That's right. 

Supposedly the guys I'm working for are difficult and demanding and the job requires me to be "really switched on".  Oh yeah, the cutting and pasting is killing me.  Also, my combination of extremely high tolerance and having dealt with some very high maintenance people means I kinda like these guys and don't foresee myself having any problems.

It's only for two weeks and it's really far away (it's nearly out of Auckland!), but the pay is really good so I will suck it up and do the driving.

5 days til my birthday!

Oh yeah, Happy 2007 ... !!!  It's gonna be a good one.

Happy New Year!

Well I was awake for midnight in New Zealand, all the Aussie time zones, all through Asia, part of Europe, the UK and all the Americas.   
I had a quiet new years with friends on the beach with a bonfire.  It was quiet, chilly and entirely lovely.  I got to commiserate with another sad person who was not at Rockin' Rockies New Year this year.  We talked all night and watched the sun rise from the top of Mt Eden.  Met some great randoms and realised what a crazy amount of trees there are in Auckland.
Why was the Edinburgh street party cancelled?
I've had 7 hours of sleep in the last 50 hours.  I think I'll go to bed soon.
