Ready For Egypt

Wednesday, November 1st, 2006

I’m almost all packed, just waiting for the traffic to die down so I can get to the super market and buy the last few essentials, and then I’m off. Three weeks in Egypt and Cairo! oh yeah


Adventures in Takapuna

Monday, November 29th, 2004

On Friday night, we (Peter, Mark, Anna, Bree and I) went out to town and headed to Coast right away, figuring if we had to pay their silly $10 cover we might as well get in early and enjoy a whole night of hanging with the beautiful people. It completely failed to get busy. Peter convinced us to drink a bit of cognac, but we hated it, I think Mark especially disliked it having paid $60 for the privilege. The girls left and we decided that since only 5 people had shown the slightest interest in the dance floor we’d go else where. We liked Lenin, crammed dance floor and good drinks. I think we had 4 mohitos each (the vanilla vodka ones were the best), good times. Then taxied home where Mark quickly dropped onto the couch asleep (he’d had much more than us to drink so that was allowed). Peter got into a cheap suit he bought for playing paintball, and I borrowed a business shirt, and that’s where the night really started.


Marathon Man

Sunday, October 31st, 2004

I did it! I beat my time, I broke the 4 hour limit. Not by much, but from now on I can say I ran a marathon in under 4 hours! My official time is recorded as 3hrs 56mins 27secs. The clever people at took pictures of the event and organised them by runner number, so thanks to the wonders of digital photography work flow you can see me finish. I also took some photos after the event, of my feet. Despite having these shoes for 6 years they have refused to make way for my feet and it is up to my body to adjust, which it isn’t doing very well.

But how was the event you ask? Well let me tell you.
