It's always better on holiday
According to current multiplex lore, I believe, any road trip worthy of the title should incorporate elements of the following:
- Sneaking a look in the girls dorm at the hostel
- An amusingly ultraviolent encounter with some wildlife
- Bizarre drinking games, and
- A Deliverance style encounter with sinister, comically disfigured yokels
Sadly, the trip that M, dan and I recently underwent didn't quite reach that level, including more whale-watching and Uno marathons than any of the above activities. Still you take your pleasures where you find them, and we were able to make do with a record year for humpbacks, more rainforests than we could count and a luxurious flat on the Gold Coast at the end of it all.
It was a great pleasure to have Dan, and it seems he enjoyed himself. Hopefully he can go back and evangelise about the joys of godzone to others, thus producing a virtuous circle of visitors for the forseeable. having said that, M & I are enjoying a quiet spell for now.
The signature CD of our trip was the Franz Ferdinand LP ("It's so much better on holiday..."), which provides a happy link to this week's activities, which involve seeing Franz Ferdinand tonight and, on Friday, seeing...er....Franz Ferdinand. Well, they are pretty good, aren't they?
Yesterday we saw the King Arthur film, which was tosh but fun, and I'm back on film course duty as of tomorrow. Recently saw an amazing dvd, if anyone cares - The 400 Blows, it's astonishing, go see.
Love youse all, xx
