yes, that's my daughter channeling a 1930s gangster [and other random thoughts]

and that's her boyfriend on the right, and he's ALWAYS that happy.
he's quite adorable and they're very cute together.

trust my daughter to be front and centre, but where else would you be with cheekbones like that - (eh daryl?)

got this today from elizabeth - thanks from your 'foreign' friend!
[aren't we all foreign when it comes down to it though? just a thought...]
saw district 9 on sunday night with our neighbours
it's certainly not a movie i would have picked if it was a 'just the two of us' on a date night, but WOW
compelling, riveting - and has peter jackson (a kiwi you know!) written all over it

two thumbs waaaaaaaaaay up!!!

i just had a 4-day weekend
because i'm working THIS friday (which is usually my day off), i had yesterday off
4 day weekends ROCK!

miss 19 turns 20 in exactly ONE WEEK!
(she was due yesterday!)

i'm having another hot stone massage next week
(yes i am!!!!)

AND SOME GREAT NEWS FOR LOCAL SWEET TOOTHS...
the organic grocer cafe (bottom of ngaio gorge) is now back open as the
EAT RIGHT CAFE

spread the word, drop in and say hi...

- oh, and 41 sleeps until all that stuff in the post below happens...

People have been praising District 9 all over the blogosphere. I guess I best get off my ample ass and check it out...

Oh I want to see District 9, the trailers have been engrossing!

I remember my high school boyfriend! But then I would, wouldn't I? I married him, after all.

Happy early birthday to your eldest! Turning 20 is a big deal.

Congrats on the seal of awesomeness. It was only a matter of time until someone made your awesomeness official.

What a fun class photo! Reminds me I heard a New Zealand class trying to raise money to go to Los Angeles for the Ellen DeGeneres show.

I don't know how you can sleep with such excitement ahead of you!! What a wonderful trip you and Clive will have, especially staying in apartments etc. Am sooooo jealous - but very happy for you!
