Tickets and teasers

They came! They came! Our travel documents arrived!! And no, we don’t produce over-sized airline tickets here in New Zealand. our travel agent also sent backpacks and rugby shirts (for the sevens tournament) so there will be NO mistaking the fact that we are tourists.

I think they even slipped in a tattoo for us to stick on our foreheads. “hey look, tourists at 12 o’clock! Check it out! Foreign currency approaching!!!” lucky i’ve been to asia before – I LOVE HAGGLING!!!


In other news, many thanks to my 1000th visitor – a nimble-fingered blogger from California who zoomed in and zoomed out of my blog, forever creating for themselves a very special place on my sitemeter page.


Now onto more serious matters – CHOCOLATE!!! Here’s a teaser for my easter-blogger-birthday giveaway – coming NEXT WEDNESDAY!!!!! Stay tuned. Bookmark me. Do whatever you need to do to stay close to the chocolate!

That’s all folks!


(Don’t worry, i won’t be slipping any carrot into the chocolate)

Sue you are tempting us all... but count me in as well!
woo hoo on the 1,000th visitor- now how many leave comments and does it not drive you mad to wonder who they are and where they came from? Now I need to go and check my tracker.

scrappysue said...

yep - probably less than 1% of visitors leave a comment. i love the 'time on site' stat - most are ZERO seconds!!! zip in and zip out, but i think we all do that you know, especially with sites we haven't been to before.

Staying close to the chocolate! :)

Hey there...I shall await the chocolate "day of WRECK-oning (as in "Wrecking my diet") with bated breath! Chocolate and peppermint!? YUM! Perhaps Cadbury will win me over after all (NOT a fan of the gooey egg...bluk)

Hey...where in Asia are you headed?

scrappysue said...

headed to hong kong - in 8 sleeps!!! FYI - the easter giveaway is open to EVERYONE - near and far! i will make sure they are well packed to avoid melting.

Hey, I hear you on the 1% leaving comments and the 0.00 seconds they spend looking at your blog. The ones that frustrate me the most are the ones that stalk 2-3 times a day and view 10+ pages for 22 minutes etc.

I've never seen pineapple lump marshmellow eggs or the dark chocolate and peppermint marshmellow eggs... I think a short trip to NZ could be in order...

scrappysue said...

ooooo - how do u know about those ones? i hadn't noticed them before! there's always a bed here for you. happy to give you a girl's own guide to the supermarkets with the biggest range of choccie easter eggs! - ANYTIME!!!

Kellan said...

Hong Kong - WOW. I hope you have a wonderful trip!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I'll see you soon. Kellan
