I appreciated the way the Obamas clearly decided about halfway through to spare his embarrassment by moving around a bit themselves, albeit in a low-key kind of way. I think that was a gracious thing to do.
This is totally off-topic except it relates to live music in Auckland, and this seems like a discriminating audience to ask for advice.
If I was to pay a flying visit to the Power Station for a gig later this year, what would you suggest as an affordably convenient establishment at which to overnight?
Do y’all have the remembered-as-real thing?
I always know it's time to wake up and go for a pee because I start peeing into all sorts of cavities because there's never a toilet.
Most realistic dream I have ever had nested this two levels deep.
[In the dream] I started peeing and stopped just in time because I remembered I was asleep and had to wake up and go to the loo. So I woke up [in the dream] and went to the loo and did my business, and then before I had returned to the bed I really did wake up - fortunately the very realistic micturation had only been part of the (outer) dream! It took a while to get back to sleep after that little escapade.
Okay, that might just be the weirdest thing I've ever typed on PAS...
some sort of pass system
A tax on buyers from other regions would do nicely.
get a deeper blue
Yes; I didn't like the Lockwood designs particularly and I strongly resent the way the PM has appeared to be gaming the process, but the first time I saw fabric versions of the old flag and the black Lockwood flying side by side my overwhelming reaction was simply "oh no, that's a really naff blue".
I am a big fan of Orphan Black and I didn't know about something I have just read here :-(
As somebody said on Twitter, the black Lockwood design is just the current flag with the Union Jack swapped out and the All Black fern swapped in.
So what will they replace 3D with? I have a suggestion:
Scnut - a reality TV show tracking the life of a beleaguered gossip columnist who has burned so many bridges that nobody will gossip to her ever again. The show follows its antiheroine's desperate attempts to stay relevant and in the public eye.
It will be cheap to make, honest.
Unfortunately he's not standing up for kiwis
Key and Turnbull are Mates.
NZ and Oz are Mates.
Nothing is more important than standing up for your Mate.
