My birthday card from the Griffs is actually a book that everyone should read…

It’s super cool. I’m not sure if it would be a copyright violation to photograph all the pages and upload them.

May 17th, 2011placebo

Green tea and Manuka Honey is my magic feather.

You can know something is placebo and still have it work for you if you believe in placebo. I don’t actually think green tea is strong enough to keep me from getting a cold after running in the rain, but the belief that it will work as a placebo keeps me healthy.


Got any placebos you believe in?

May 13th, 2011special peeps

I’d been thinking about writing one of those silly but popular posts I use to do where I make fun of quirks in my friends.

Instead here’s a list of things I love about you guys…

(There’s a dozen ways I could get in trouble here, so let me give two disclaimers; if you’re not on the list it doesn’t mean you’re less important, I randomly chose people, second, the things I listed here are not necessarily the most loved attribute of the person, just something unique. :) )

One of the coolest things about camping is arriving somewhere at dusk and then waking up the next morning to see this from your bed.

We jumped up and ran into the ocean for our pre-breakfast swim. We then realised just how much freezinger the water was once you got outside of the Bay of Plenty and headed south.

Must do.

In February we tubed down the Tongariro River. Dale and I rate it near the top of funnest things ever.

I’m not even kidding, there wasn’t a public toilet for miles.

My friends tell me if I get a Mac it will help my business, I’ll get more clients, make loads more money, my websites will rank higher on Google, people will love me, my confidence will go up (is that even possible?), the media will start writing about me, I’ll be better behaved,  my car will need less fuel to run, and I’ll get a lovely wife.

(They’re not sure if it will make me taller.)

I don’t know what I’ve been waiting for.

March 16th, 2011hopscotch

At breakfast this morning we were talking about something Becky said a few weeks back. It prompted me to draw this piece of art of the incident. Seeing Becky is away at the moment, I thought I’d share…

(Click on the pic to see it larger.) (As if this size isn’t already an assault on your eyes.)
