..incidentally (and nothing at all to do with this topic), is the tour of The Civic still on for Saturday?
..and I guess we have had our fill of going forward, especially when Don B and his mates want us to regress?
Great--I have found the rugby discussion.
It would be nice to see Brendan Leonard stay fit long enough to properly challenge for his position
In the Waikato Times tonight he is talking about perfecting his dive pass from the base of the scrum as he reckons it gives a split-second advantage over rampaging forwards. The biggest disappointment for me has been that Aled de Malmanche hasn't been given a run, after dragging him away from holidaying in Bali.
Our firstborn attended the following shows in the womb
Not quite the same but Travis, our firstborn, did rummage around mightily indoors when he was taken to a screening of Aliens. I don't think it scarred him as he turned out to be a philosopher.
Didn't Stephen attempt to establish that I was from Te Awamutu a while ago?
I thought I saw you at The Regent 3 Cinema in Alexandra Street. Great things have come from Te Awamutu--not just the Finns.
But I am procrastinating--I should get back to updating my chapter on NZ journalists for a new edition of The Global Journalist (Routledge). All insights on the state of the profession are welcome (but they do have to be publishable!)
The list of the Tsk Tsk Force on the front page of the Herald this morning caused me to choke on my toast. The only recommendations missing were: Bring back children as chimney sweepers and Cut off the hands of petty thieves.
And a side note to the gentlemanly Geoff Lealand I will get around to a decrypted version of my comments on the SPADA Media 7 if I bump into you over the festive season.
I will be at the do on Friday night, staying over for The Civic tour on Saturday.

What, no Helen Keller jokes?
Yeah, Russell should ban that rich guy. He's a cock.
But he ain't some rich prick!
At times like this, too, I really miss Bruce Jesson.

What are the topics for Media 7 this week, Russell? I will be in Auckland on Wednesday (at TVNZ in the morning) but I think our media teachers Christmas do may take priority in the evening.
Geoff, do the noise-cancelling models have a standard minijack
Just yer standard minijack. I am getting sound through the left ear and occasionally through the right, so it obviously something to do with the connection. Do you know if they can be repaired?
Summer is on its way--the birds are perching in the plum tree.
