On another note - heading up north tomorrow to Sight see around Auckland for a few days and go to The Prophets of Rage gig

There's a spiderweb outside the window on the 24th floor of our office.

Courageous little fucker.

I'm more of a clementine guy, but I can appreciate a good orange too.

This won't mean anything to the Americans on the board, but pretty sure my Soz Hemisphere crew will feel me.

The wife and I went out for dinner with my brother and his wife last night, nice dinner, nice service, nothing extraordinary. My brother doesn't drink and we do so when the bill comes ($216) he gave me $100 in cash and I was then going to pay the rest and buy coffees after.

So I go to pay, hand over the hundred, and think "I'll round up a little for a tip" (something I very rarely do as it generally pisses me off). So I thought of giving an extra $10, then thought why not round up to the nearest $10 instead, and somehow found myself blurting out "make it an even $250".

My maths failed me badly and it took me a few seconds to realise what I'd done, and it was too late to back out as she had already thanked me profusely and rung it up.

I'm still hell annoyed with myself the next morning.

We only usually do it when dining in quite large groups. Most will pitch in a little extra, except for the odd tight ass.

Wait staff are actually paid enough to survive on over here, tips are just bonuses.

Out shopping for kitchen stools this morning, salesman handed me a swath of different color options and I failed to make a stool sample joke. That's on ME.
