Christmas truce 1914Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.

No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?

    A pint and watch our Reds at Rugby with friends, gardening, and some politics; a well-balanced weekend.

    Saturday: Free opening day events at Wynyard Quarter redevelopment on the AKL waterfront (down the end of Halsey St by the Fish Market). Much more thoughtful design than the rest of the overbuilt downtown Viaduct.

    I’m looking forward to the next step of the All Blacks walloping of the next hapless fools to come our way. It is going to go on all year long. …. … i love being an optimist

    If you’re looking for some PC gaming love, E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy has been released on steam and makes for some refreshing gunplay + Deus Ex 1 style RPG stuff.

    Also on gaming, fuck regional pricing, RAGE and Skyrim are US$89.99 for Aus/NZ on steam, or NZ$130 in store. Which given the historical results of over pricing is just going to decrease sales and increase the incentive to import and/or pirate it.

    Recovering from the flu ive had for the past fortnight. Feeling like crap and subsisting on custard and fruit juice (because my appetite went to pretty much zero). Didnt help that I had car troubles as well….

  9. Had a quick look at the Rugby.  Eden park is not full …

      For me, I’m watching it at breakfast is not quite the same. Is it a bad sign to have a beer at breakfast just because the rugby is on? 😉

        Just think, whenever it is breakfast time for you, it is likely to be cocktails time somewhere else in the world. So I think you are OK 🙂

      • Sure is rosy , You will have to watch your waistline if you do t his sort of thing. But then Im one of those few people who do not like the taste or the smell of beer,Had a sip once ,never again ,

    Limited access to internet where we are, but bottled water costs 75cents for 1.5 liters in Turkey. In nz??? A bit like cost of milk being far too high in land of plenty!

    Cold and miserable weather, fire going.  Must be a good day to – work – what else!?  Sigh…

    Bit stormy out. Blowing a gale. Shed still standing. Goat lying down.

    Only mad dogs, Englishmen and ducks will be outside today. Anyone else suffering from cabin fever?

    Getting sky documentary channels for $5.50 a week is one of the best things we could have done for this weather.
