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?

    What’s on this weekend? Work! Yes, I now have part time work. Good boss and a nice work environment. It’s nice to return to a familiar normality, not to mention a relief to begin to start on the task of paying off debt, accrued through the need to put some living expenses on the credit card.

    Now, music time. A dedication to our PM, tapping away on the war drums there. Apologies for a repost of one of my top 5 Tom Waits songs, but it feels quite fitting for now.

    Fellow Dunedinites – going to the Arts Festival? My wiser and better half took me along to this last night – not the sort of thing I would expect to enjoy, but it was brilliant! Two shows on Saturday, get along if you can.
