Saw Bruce on Saturday night at Mt Smart and the Saturday night before - in the Hunter Valley, Australia. Two different but amazing concerts that I wouldn't have missed for anything.
Huge apologies to Samuel Johnson for this, but I say, "When you're tired of Springsteen, you're tired of life."
Me too, but it was more like three weeks ago. ASB visa. A workmate had hers replaced same way, same non-specific reason given.
I asked an ASB Bank teller and he just said that it's most likely a precautionary measure where they know data has been accessed and they want to make sure there's no fraud. So he was no help.
I guess if they're still investigating they're going to be a bit cagey about details... anyone got any anonymous sources from the banks...?
But it did look so chaotic and dangerous that I'm reluctant to judge them here.
As am I. I think most of us would have a different perspective on police work if we spent a week on night shift with frontline police officers - and a whole lot more respect for them.
Regardless of the rights or wrongs of police officers' actions, these students are learning a very important life lesson: Do not take on the cops. You will always come off second best.
Seriously, Auckland in general isn't - you can't generalise about Auckland even though everyone does. It's got specific bits. And they're all different from each other. I'm a westie - a very distinct breed.
