how can you generate heat when you can't feel your feet and they're turning blue?!

you light up a mean blaze with posters and screenplays!

how we gonna pay
how we gonna pay
how we gonna pay
last year's rent?!


i have no heat and am wearing about 6 layers of clothes (hat included), so i feel like i can relate to rent - which is coming to palmy!

it might not be quite the same as seeing it on broadway, but i will be happily dragging val along and making him learn the whole score (which he really should know already, but doesn't!).

and speaking of flatting in new zealand, check out the video lease - starring my (former) favourite shortland street star! (for all those not living in new zealand, shortland street is, of course, new zealand's finest medical drama)

oh yeah, this pic is of my first knitting project i completed all by myself! it's nice, warm, fuzzy new zealand wool :)

the body is an amazing thing



AMAZING!! my jaw just dropped watching this...

also quit cool - a giant plastinated squid from new zealand! slightly less greusome than the bodies, which maybe i should go see in germany.

kute kiwis!

photo credit: national kiwi trust, kiwi encounter at rainbow springs, rotorua

i got a very official letter in the mail yesterday and it contained my very first grant for my kiwi project!! i was so excited, and made even more so because the chairman of the fund was a guy who has done heaps of work on ratite evolution. which might be the reason i got the money, but i'll pretend it's because of all of my excellent grant-writing experience with sia :)

speaking of kiwis, the 1000th kiwi hatched for operation nest egg was hatched at kiwi encounter a while back - yay!
