Had a good evening last night. went to a free concert with the gf put on by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra followed by pizza.

Our seats were in the second row back from the stage. It was great.

Now it's Friday.

One of China's Days of Spite(tm) today. We've got a holiday later in the week, so we have to work Sunday to "make up" for it.

Yes, they do like to hold a grudge and be hyper sensitive. They've got chips on their shoulders as large as the Israelis <ducks from inevitable flame war>.

Except these chips are probably fried in pork fat, and most certainly not kosher.

A lot of stuff in Israel isn't kosher! Only a minority are really observant.

The most amusing thing in this part of the world is the fate that befalls just about any vegetarian. Good luck with that in HK or China. If you are vegan - just don't bother!

Looks like work is going to be cancelled this arvo, so I'm lounging at home.

Typhoon nearby means the little kiddies can't go sailing or rowing.

Just registered for Judo after a Tae Kwon Do class. My attention now is on the MMA scene, hence the three different martial arts, and I'm trying to get ready as well as I can.

Oooooooo - dontcha just hate that.

So, I lost my Leatherman tool a couple of months ago. No idea where. Small apartment was searched, as was desk at work etc.

Today I needed a tool, so I went to the store and bought a new one.

Guess what I just found 5 minutes ago at home...

Was out of town and came back to a burgled house.
Dumb asses left a coke cup right next to where the TV was setting.
The cops are lifting prints from it.

That's what I gathered after they were here.
They were kinda miffed they had to do any work even though they think they know who it may have been.
I just need the paperwork for insurance.

Waiting for the school bus. Lucky for me, I can see the road up 1/4 mile away and the bus stop is right in front of my home. Ergo, I can wait inside my living room, looking out the window, enjoying this wonderful cool conditioned air, till I see the bus approaching. I can see other parents at the bus stop, they are melting... I could probably make some money selling them cool beverages. Ohh, the bus is coming, gotta go!

Thanks guys.

The cops came back and gathered evidence. The first guys were just filling out reports.
Some checks were stolen too and they tried to use them, and were stupid enough to go into a bank to try and cash them. They are on video.
There may be a chance they get caught.
