Glasses and Ping Pong Balls

Ages ago, it rained. It rained a lot. But it was uber fantastic. Yay for wet weather.

Alright, a treat for you fellas today. It’s a bombardment of imagery, from my latest adventures. It’s ze city, and ze mall.


You have your tall buildings, and some other stuff.

Part of the second story, of a mall. Neat-o. It was reasonably quiet. Would’ve been lame sauce if I had to dodge every fucker while trying to navigate my way through this paddock.

A faux beach swimming pool…Indoors. It’s funny, since I’m so used to living near the ocean, I’m only used to seeing people tan on ze sand. Here, people tan inside, as well as at parks.

A pirate ship… with water and stuff. I could’ve made a bad joke, saying the winds really took them to far off lands, and trouble here. But I won’t.

There was a seal show as well, it did tricks and stuff. I wonder if it has ever pooped in front of ze audience?

IKEA! It’s Swedish, you know?

Jabba Wabba Ding Dong

A foggy morning… the train was ghosty like, and everything. Just kidding. It’s a just a train. I mean, come on. Too much tv for you!

Ze Mountain! Was uber. Look at that shit. Really, look at it.                             Just. Look. At. It. Fucker.

Another example of everything being on another scale here. Isn’t she beautiful? Seriously. Just. Look…you get the point.

Pretty…massive Tourist Centre. Legit logs were used for those poles thingies too. It’s the shiz. Fyi, a girl who’s had one too many prozacs, works there. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya.

Don’t go too fast, ’cause if the rams don’t get ya, the cops will…once they get out of McDonalds.

$1 for any sized soft drink! With their large sizes being mega sized; what a bargain!

Ahh…Canada.

I’m still trying to get used to the long long long, long days. It’s rained a few times now, it’s nice! The days are so long though, 5 am sunrise, 11pm sunsets. That’s insane. FIFA World Cup, only 2days away! Woo.

Starting to get used to the Pontiacs, and such. Fucking Dodge Rams, and Ford F250’s. Everything is on a different scale here. The stores are bigger, the cars are bigger, even the fucking ants are bigger. The accents make me smile, I met a rather hearty lady who asked if New Zealand had snow. I lol’d inside.

Everything’s going ok so far, can’t complain. It’s good to break the routine of my mundane life back home. I do miss the soccer, so very much, it will be difficult to stay fit so I won’t struggle for too long when I get back but it’s worth it. Only a few days in, but it’s still smiles all ’round.

Until next time…Same Bat time, same Bat channel. Ok, maybe not the time, but the same channel. Actually, not even the channel, but you get my drift (you know where to find me at least – ’cause you’re a stalker).


I Survived

I know, I know. It’s been ages since I last updated, I’ve been busy alright???

So here’s Auckland Airport, at night……………………………………..:

The rockies! It was pretty, and pretty, and some more pretty.  The final leg felt like fucking ages.

Weather has been good so far. Not much to complain about.

Still feels like home sometimes. Except flatter, and bigger cars. Bigger everything actually.
