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?

    Have just finished making a rather tasty lounge-friendly wooden blocks box for my 2 yr old nephew,
    and will spend the weekend sanding edges of the 200 bloody blocks that go in it :]

    It is the 48 hour film festival this weekend, starts today (Friday) at 7PM. I have never competed before so it should be interesting!

      Good on ya! I had a mate who did it last year and thoroughly enjoyed it.

      Heh – I’m staring as a security guard in one. I get shot in the back apparently. Bummer.

    Continuing a holiday in Wellington. Keeping a low profile in case QoT hits me in the nuts 🙂

    The world has gone weird, the ardent Crusader fan will gladly watch the Horrorcanes. Since the big toss out of the up themselves boys they have gone from strength to strength, still have the sharpest backline in the Super15. Team trumps individuals. Thats tonight fixed.

    Its planting time out around the traps in places where things are not supposed to be grown, see what strikes.

    Admirable as it is, Georgecom’s comment 5 really shouldn’t be in the weekend social thread. Could one of the mods hiff it into open mic?

    First Cyclocross training session on Sunday morning preparing for the Nationals in July.

    Can’t wait 🙂

    Football tomorrow, followed by a day painting on Sunday.
    During my painting I will listen to Tom Robinson on BBC radio 6 followed by The Bob Harris show on BBC radio 2, finishing with the soul show on bFM. Bliss.

    Grand kids for the weekend. Miss 5 and Miss 6, could be busy time.

    Bit of a market fest this weekend: Mangere on Saturday morning, Pakuranga that night and the first of the wild west markets at the stadium on Sunday.

    More Diablo 3. Clvl 35 Wizard halfway through Act 1 Nightmare.

    Stolen from Brian Edwards Media site:

    Fun and laughter on a cold Sunday morning.

      Brilliant, Anne! ROTFL.

      Thanks for the link. Have added it to my favorites, as a stress reliever. Also enjoyed the comments, particularly the one as a suggestion for Budget Day………

    • felix 11.2

      Haha very well done.

      Off to cut out some gorse. I may be some time…
