Roll on summer…

4 Months since my last post this time… I really need to get more organised and update more frequently. My memory just doesn’t store data for that long lol! Aaaaaand to be perfectly honest there’s not been much of any interest to write about. I’ve hardly even taken any new pics! But I guess I’ll have a go at filling some space, going from most current and heading back as far as I can manage. =P

Relay for Life 2009

On the 7th and 8th of March 2009 the Cancer Society held the Relay for Life in sunny Napier. Just over a week prior, volunteer Fire Fighters from Napier station were told about it, and rapidly set to work fund raising and getting ready to participate. The weekend of the Mission Concert (weekend before the relay) was spent avoiding the rain on Saturday and seeking the shade on Sunday to do a sausage sizzle which went better than expected.

Wow, it’s been a while…

Yeah yeah yeah. I’m a lazy git and I know it. =P Ok, now let me think, what’s happened over the past … (checks) … 3 months (wow it even feels like it’s been longer than that). Well, let’s look at the key points I guess. Oh, but before I do, I have to say I think the arsonists that lit fires in Victoria (Australia) should be summarily shot. It’s mass murder on a grand scale and shows a severe lack of respect for anyone and anything. In fact, lets make arson a capital offence all round. Even the idiots here in NZ who set alight buildings that were part …

05/11/2008 – Day 6

Ok, so last Thursday (30/10/2008) I got my tattoo done. 6 days down and it’s healing quite well I think. It scabbed up a bit and most of it has had it’s peel, so now we’re starting to see the real result. I’m quite happy with it, although I can’t say it’s looking PERFECT. The dividing lines were meant to be horizontal but maybe that’s just how I’m holding my shoulder distorting them. Also one of the lines at least will need a touch up on the colouring as there is a small patch that missed out obviously. I’ll possibly try get back in and see Miss PQ on Friday …

Time for an update…

Originally posted on my bebo blog after being stolen from Rach P. Decided it’s time to do an updated version. [ONE] Who are your last three texts from? Well, last three all from Cazza but last 3 people were Cazza, Nikki and Mobile Banking lol [TWO] Where was your default pic taken? (ok, so this is rather bebo-centric, but it’s the same pic shown here). It’s taken at Space Bar in Auckland. [THREE] How was today? Not too bad, spent too much time on the phone though. [FOUR] What’s the rudest thing someone has said to you today? Umm, nothing in the offensive side of rude, but… =P [FIVE] Does …

Delays and Politics…

To different topics, but both current. The politics bit is mainly because I got a laugh after I came across this old pic I’d been sent that I thought suited the current political climate and all the campaigning bollocks that’s going on at the moment. The delay is that it will be an extra two weeks before I get my tattoo, as now the lady who will be doing it is apparently getting induced the day before I was booked in. The next slot they have after the one I had is now the 30th. =[ Yes I’m miffed about it, was all ready, had leave from work organised for …

Summer

Well, it’s a beautiful Sunday here, nearing the end of September and just put the clocks forward an hour for daylight savings. It’s been a chilly winter but I’m sure that the impending muggyness will make me wish it was sub-zero again! Work has been busy as hell but I’m planning to make sure I take some time off over the summer to go tramping/camping etc provided I can find a suitable victim to accompany me! Also plan to get back into rock climbing and work off the winter insulation that has built up around my mid section. =P In 18 days I go under the needle and get branded. …

Auckland

Space Bar – 27/07/2008 Originally uploaded by hoppers99 Auckland rocks! Thursday afternoon off work, getting ready for road trip and potentially epic weekend in Auckland. Friday morning last minute packing then off to pick up my mate, then hit the road for 6+ hours in the car. Made it to where we were staying around 16:30ish and met up with one of my friends up there and headed into centre city to try catch up with another. Parked up at O’Carrolls in Vulcan Lane (So the map tells me lol). Dinner and a few drinks there where our 4th met up with us. A few other semi-random acquaintances came and …

Birthdays suck!

Post birthday celebrations last night. Dinner with friends and then out on the town. A little worse for wear today but could have been worse. Got me a shiny new phone for my birthday. Nokia N95. It’s my new toy, with lots of bells and whistles. Even a 5 mega-pixel camera. Good stereo speakers too, for a phone it has awesome music quality. Heading to Auckland next weekend; a little bit of a road trip. Should be good, even heading to a rave on the Saturday night, provided this old man can keep awake long enough! …zzzzZZZZZ
