  • Hard News: Before Lust,

    There won’t be just talk on Thursday night.

    Goodness, you made me choke on my milo!

    We had two different heterosexual men lined up, but they both genuinely had to, erm, withdraw.

    You haven't even got two heterosexuals to rub together?

  • Capture: Spring is Like a Perhaps Hand, in reply to Joe Wylie,

    a wetland with a great central mudflat. Around mid-2011 it was a honking paradise for strutting waterfowl as they staked out their territories.

    Perhaps more like it used to be?

    Victoria Lake was formed in North Hagley Park in 1897 to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria's reign. It had been a swamp of over 1 acre in area, and was extended to over 4 acres, destroying numbers of native plants since lost to Christchurch.

    Lake Victoria

    Oh very good to see!

    Even if a friend of mine refers to it as Victoria Puddle . As lakes go, it's a tiddler. ;-)

    While the language may excite the managers and marketing teams it causes severe forehead bruising for the scientists in those teams.

    You’re giving me an idea for a smartphone app. It does management maths – looks like a calculator, but produces much more exciting results.

    Sure to be a winner with "creative" accountants. :-)

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Dubious achievements, in reply to Robyn Gallagher,

    All the cyber bickering seems a terrible lot of fuss just to be able to say, "The Satellite Spies? Yeah, that's my band."

    Perhaps this is the equivalent of The Dirty Frypan Argument between flatmates? ie. a great excuse for a row? It's not usually about the frypan. :-)

  • Hard News: A long way yet,

    Well that's OK then!

    Gerry's vision gives pride of place to a children's playground. Not thriving retail, not innovative business, not performing arts, not energy efficiency, not beautiful architecture, not vibrant community. Not even pools, gyms, libraries, and walking tracks.

    A fucking children's playground. Let's aim high.

    "One important part of the frame, in the northeast, will be the new children's playground. We will build them a playground from where they can view the rebirth of their city through their childhood years.

    ''It will be the best playground in the world - not a fun park, but a playground".

    it's a bust

    a library bus

    We get the library bus out here, and of course we’re glad of it. But I see the same titles on the shelves over and over. It’s no long-term solution. And certainly not for another couple of years! We need a pop-up library. Come on, CCC. Libraries are community hubs, and we really need them.

    I went to Central Library Tuam, which is awesome! They’re having troubles with the new space-age self-issuing system (you stack your items on the issuing desk and it automagically knows what they are): the door alarm was going off constantly while I was there, which drove me nuts and meant I didn’t linger. But what a treasure trove of books! The NZ collection’s there too.
