According to todays paper, us Kiwis are happy, well-fed (read: FAT) and lazy. We think of food and drink in a similar vein to the French apparently (hooray! the braincells haven't been lost to just any ol' cause)
As for myself, well I do a bit of eating. I have posted enough recipes here to prove that. I also have done my share of drinking...well, maybe I'm still working on that one. I think sharing is great and I'm prepared to do my bit. Line 'em, bar keep, and I'll do the rest.
Sleeping? Now thats another world altogether. I reckon that sometime in the past 13.5 years I have lost the art of having a good kip. I blame the crotchfruit/offspring/sconegrabbers/curtain climbers..call 'em what you will, but kids are not good for one's ability to sleep. Even now, my sprogs are happy to sleep thru the night which since they're 14 and 11 (sorry, nearly 12) is something I am grateful for, no even now I find that once I'm actually awake - I can no longer go back to sleep and stay that way for hours. I have to get up and drink tea at 8am on a Sunday because of this design fault. The Stud can sleep for Africa. Why is that??
Now, in keeping with the NZ music month (and visit this site for photograph month, Chris is an old friend of mine. When we lived in the same city he very kindly let me use his darkroom and in exchange for a bottle of wine or two would happily show me how to develop the black and whites which I loved doing so much. I was even a model for him altho he says model, I suspect maybe he meant horrible example! However, check him out as he's a Kiwi who has done good).
The music video is obviously from the 80s...
