Uh, Tats, you alright? Well, no, not really.

Jumping on the meme bandwagon because it's Friday and all we want is entertainment, not thinking, right?

So, in no particular order, three things I've done that I doubt anyone else reading this has. If you have done it, please correct me, and I'll add something else.

1. Mustered cattle in the Tutamoe Ranges on horseback, sleeping in an old bushman's hut where we got to put our feet in the woodstove to keep them warm.

2. Climbed to the top of the Seaward Boulder at Baring Head and screamed "FUCK YOU!" at the universe. There is something very cathartic in knowing there's nothing between you and Antarctica except water.

3. Won ribbons for both polocrosse and one day eventing in the same season, on the same horse.

Oops. That wasn't exactly entertainment, was it? Oh well. Maybe someone wanted to think today.

I will be at Fidels tonight, but later than usual because we have work drinkies and I'm staying for them (for a wee while) to do the solidarity thing with my new team. I'm hoping to be there by 5-5:30.

Um. OK I'm going now. *cue sighs of relief from readers*

And on a lighter note

Anyone want to go to this with me tomorrow? NZ Ballet is auctioning off around 140 costumes, and they're on display in Shed 11. Yes, I know ballet dancers are teeny-tiny but, you know, they're pretty, looking is free, and you never know...

I'm free in the early afternoon and was going to wander in for a look, and place a bid for a friend in Christchurch.
