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?

    Cricket tonight.

    When I saw the first ODI was on tonight I went Woo hoo…then I remembered the Black Caps were shit.

      Get slightly drunk and then it wont matter 😛

        that’ll just make crosser and crosser until I drunkenly smash the TV before logging onto The Standard and getting into some pointless discussion about nothing of any real importance.

      Lots of lolz. I watched the end of the England innings, went down to the shop thinking when I got back it would be worth tuning in for the beginning of the NZ innings – just in case they batsmen weren’t rubbish. Got back at the beginning of the 2nd over – 2 wickets down already!

    Finally hitting the hills this weekend:

    Otherwise it’s a pretty lax long weekend in sight, with monday looking like a good day to bake more bread and read. As I frakking nailed it yesterday and now just have to work out better delayed fermentation methods to get tastier bread.

    I’ve been trying to find out a book name about nz labour written ages ago. It was called something like keep to the left, no right turn and I thought it was written by someone in the Else family. I have looked a few places but to no avail. Can anybody give me something definite as my searches aren’t much use.

    I found fresh taro, cassava, and Hawaiian kumara at a market in Brisbane. First time I’ve found cassava here. The normal kumara they have is tasteless. Apparently it’s the Asian variety, because the ones I ate in Brazil had plenty of taste. They were like our good Kiwi ones. Finding cassava made my wife very happy, because it’s part of the staple diet where she’s from. Now all I have to find is a decent pumpkin instead of the watery rubbish they sell here. Then maybe some lamb with taste, a few scallops, and some smoked trevally. Auckland is much, much better for food than Brisbane.

  5. Nice animation of Asteroid 1998 QE2, comparing QE2’s, which passed us by the other day.
