What follows are highlights of the weekend adventures of yours truly. Enjoy with my compliments. Or don’t. Up to you really.
: Ah… zombies
Saw 28 Weeks Later. Didn’t think too much of it to be honest. Pale reflection on the first one. Empty, boring and pointless reflection. See it if you have money to burn and time to kill.
: On the upside…
Readng Cinemas had a “coming soon” promo for Reno911. I don’t care that Empire magazine only gave it one star.
: There’s killing on the dancefloor
Shiny was fun, Joel’s set was great, but the crowd was a bit weird (and I mean that in the motley sense of the word). My feet were aching something wicked the next day.
: When drunken confessions go horribly wrong
… let’s not go there. Too soon.
: And on our right we have…
I went to Imerst for the first time. Quite the experience. I can only assume that was where the Wahine sank, because Imerst is three levels of tragic.
: Young kids these days
Ok so maybe I went to a birthday party for a friend of a friend who had turned 18 and maybe it was in Imerst’s third level “VIP” bar and maybe I was the oldest person that was meant to be there and maybe I was being stalked by some unfortunate anorak-wearer in his 40s (obvious let-off-his-leach-by-mother material) and maybe my back suffered from barely legal boys jump hugging me. Good times. No really.
: Crayon is the French word for pencil
Somehow I woke up with a box of crayons in the small of my back. Although I can’t remember how I got home, what disturbs me more is where they came from and what I was thinking at the time (if anything that could be taken as being in the general vicinity of vague sobriety).
: Filial piety in the modern age
Mother’s Day lunch was had at Chow on Tory. Food comas were had by all because Te Papa insisted on yours truly ordering just a bit too much food. The rib of beef was incredible. The pork and sticky rice sausage was excellent. I regret not being able to finish my coconut sticky rice pudding with cardamom-scented pineapple. There’s a definite return visit on the cards, especially with 1+1=1 cocktails on Wednesday nights. Pimms Cup anyone?
