    Later that evening we saw Murray Mexted in Hooch. It was one of those celebrity sightings that make you think something special is in the air.

    If that special something was eau de ugly Hawaiian shirt and too much cologne and hair product.

    This is why the press is dying, inadequate spelling skills and fewer pendants.

    I'm going to assume that was a great joke rather than a suggestion for journalists to wear more jewellery.

    And I'm going to assume Jed is right, because he is a photographer, and hence of higher standing.

    It's a longstanding Public Address joke.

    The repeated misspelling of Snedden's name, though, I'm not sure about.

    Having a night on the town in Wellington and not seeing Murray Mexted would be more of a rarity.

    I wrote "Sneddon" twice. The second time I put it past the media person and the reply was "yep, oh wait, 'Snedden', 'don', 'den', I don't know, I think that's right"

    So what you are saying is that the downfall of the press is not so much the fault of journalists, but comms people?

    And with this Your Honour, the prosecution rests.

    Update: I'm an idiot.

  • Rich of Observationz,

    Is there some kind of event on in Wellington this weekend? There seem to be a lot of very drunk people. Lower Hutt Anniversary?

    A festival honouring the gods of costume hire and weak beer

  • Hilary Stace,

    The 7s are a great Wellington cultural event when some people can forget their inner inhibitions for a big boozy and noisy summer party, and startle the occasional tourist. Some Brunos I saw earlier might later regret their choice of costume. Outside my window at the moment I can see a bunch of brides, some gladiators, several Fred Daggs and Billy T James (popular themes this year), fairies, insects, and lots of people in school uniforms (but I don't think those ones are in costume).

    I hear there is a group of 101 dalmatians but haven't seen them yet.

    Not so much of the weak beer. Sacha, no-one arrives at the stadium sober.

  • Hilary Stace,

    Most people going to the 7s are wearing minimal clothing with bare feet or jandals, and don't seem to be carrying anything like bags, sunscreen or money, as it would spoil the effect of the costume. So how do they manage?

  • Sacha,

    That be where the beer comes in - anaesthetic. Oh, and money cards.

  • Lucy Stewart,

    So how do they manage?

    Some of the ones Campbell Live talked to had quite ingenious pockets hidden in the costumes. As for the sunscreen - well, judging by the number of seats unfilled during lots of the rugby footage, they were just all staying inside out of the sun!

  • Stephen Judd,

    Never mind beer, I just got assaulted by some blue-smeared dude who'd been huffing nitrous all afternoon.

    If you know Dickhead Smurf, who is a burly chap who likes to steal your hat and then then try and step you out for it, tell him from me he's a cock. And so are his mates, who were weaving in and out of parading musicians trying to steal their kit.

    If you know the short stocky dude with a hieroglyph shaved into the back of his head who assisted in hat retrieval, he is a top bloke.

    Gotta say that the vibe out there has some pretty ugly undertones. Why do we have so many people who can't have fun until they're shitfaced?

    Man, your 3D session of Avatar must have been more realistic than mine.
