going native

A day in the life

Red rug green dress blue painting orange fish red strawberries yellow sunflowers.

My body is one gigantic sensory organ and I can't think of a better way to be.

Waikanae has the most bizarre public toilet. You close the door on what you think is a normal toilet, and it starts talking to you! It informs you how to lock the door, and that you only have 10 minutes before it auto-cleans (too bad if you're still in there when it starts). Then it plays lounge music for you, which I have to say is kind of offputting. I spent the first five minutes in there laughing. What I didn't realise was that the lounge music was loud enough for people passing 10-15 metres away to hear, as was my laughter.

And when you leave, it thanks you "For using Exeloo" in an American accent. I was disappointed. Was expecting fanfare...

Today, I'm noticing the yellow things a lot.

And, in case you were wondering, those crystal salt lamps? They really do taste like salt.
