conceptual oyster

the world is my oyster…living in random oyster beds, oceans and marshes worldwide, currently:, New Zealand

friday, 23 september

first to respond to a couple questions…

after 8 tries (and half the pack of wool), i got my lace pattern going on the scarf…i cannot keep up the concentration for the entire scarf, so 4 rows of a lovely border…then knit. the should be interesting.

about sammy, i love him, i miss him, and hiro too always wished he could become a real boy…i should’ve named him pinocchio…trying to become human!!! i sense over our telepathic wave…he’s going for a young john travolta thing.

as to pizza, i think i actually saw a dominios thingy on top of a delivery car, but certainly not like the states, more crepes places here than pizza.

patesserie (sp) is like a bakery/confectionary/coffee shop….and mmmmm mmmm good!

the scooter…definitely a slegggggghammer!
oh, i saw a ND-yessssssss tee shirt. and some cute (well, bratty)school girls in their uniforms rattling off ND one-liners!

okay, after a busy week…i am at ye olde internet cafe, adn forgot my dang flash stick!
with the pictures, etc…but i promise this weekend. hoping to go to the coast if the weather holds on sunday…so, will catch up then.

this week, went to a fancy gym with sim’s ‘concession’…was interesting, in many ways NZ really seems a utopia, and this gym experience supported this theory. (however, i was really sore the next day after ‘body ballance’ a combo of tai chi, yoga, and pilates)

then, i have met some peeps! yay, i’m meeting for coffee! in two hours!…at least it’s someone to talk to.
these people i’ve met…are like me…here wondering the streets having followed their ‘partners’ here. and we will get together and chat on all the same things….it was the perfect comic relief talking to the american…who has been here 4 weeks….how much reading, yoga, shopping can you do before you lose it…yeah, so yesterday, i roamed the streets again, visited the mac counter (34 bucks for eye shadow here) and arrived at home pretty as a peacock! and can tell you EVERYTHING about the new fall line…….(thank goodness i am meeting for coffee today)

this morning, i got a firmed up offer to work…it’s tough, i’m going to be working with engineers, and the job requires some travel to that’s cool, and i am possibly going to do some post occupancy work at the american embassy (oh yeah, i am supposed to register there….so little time)

and finally, swing lessons were really fun, glad we are doing it. we are going to watch the pros this evening (unless the rain comes and i wimp out) and tonight, i will try to prepare prawns…the herculinian shrimps!

take care!
