I’m so happy to tell you all that after months of nothing, tomorrow, June 19, will mark the first of hopefully many gigs after the lockdown, starting with the fabulous alt-country singer-songwriter Kerryn Fields at The Wine Cellar. I sort of weasled my way in there, wanting to hear the music myself, and offering myself […]

Covid-19 isolation: Day 8

We’ve got Opi back! When she arrived, she called out, “I’ll just take my sandals off, then I’ll be right there for a cuddle!” – and she was! Biggest disappointment of the day was buying Age Of Wonders Planetfall on Steam sale, and it being THE worst! I love Age Of Wonders 3, as evident […]

Covid-19 Isolation: Day 7
day 7

Tuesday, the day to catch up after sleeping way too much! I’m proud of working super efficiently when all distractions in the world are just a few clicks away. It turns out working from home for this long is hard, and I miss the office. And cycling. I’ve been listening to 80s pop from the […]

day 6

There isn’t an awful lot to say about today except that I started working in the moring, did a few hours, then I had a “nap”, then another, and then I kind of woke up at 8am the next day. I think I napped for 16h or so straight… “Must’ve needed it”, as Wade would […]

When I hear raging parties in the neighbourhood at 3am in the morning, and afternoon garden discos with more adults than could possibly live in one house in my suburb, I do get frustrated. The imitated wolf howling by some of those neighbours walking home in the early morning hours, I find extremely discouraging and […]

There is a granny flat on the land of the house we rent, which is inhabited by an older dude who is very much on his lonesome here in Auckland, so we make sure we talk to him from time to time to make sure he’s okay, as you do. He’s friendly enough, introverted, and […]

Rejoice: Last night I finally beat that Final Fantasy XIV boss fight that made me rage quit the game last time! It’s the little things that matter, and with FF games, especially online, I’m a bit of a proud person, seeing that I used to be a top Red mage to be reckoned with in […]

Cat Quirks
day 3

Let me tell you about my cat Marlene. When you have to stay home for a few days during daytime, her quirks become so much more apparent than during normal weeks. Let’s focus on one.: She loves for me to be outside with her. Practically that means that she will meow, lure, entice, harass me […]

Covid-19 Isolation: Day 2
day 2

A 32″ screen to replace the flickering monster was maybe a little OTT. When I’m seated it’s taller than the top of my head! Managed to find a free spot for a Countdown order, woohoo! I panic-ordered and as I’m a proper good adult I totally didn’t order tons of softdrinks because who’s addicted? Not […]
