Wellington had a massive three sub-stations down power cut this afternoon, lasting over an hour. We got to come home early from work, which was awesome.
I also enjoyed: seeing police officers controlling the traffic at the big intersections, speculating with workmates about how soon looting will start, the candles in Hashigo Zake to light the stairs (didn’t drink there though since I had no cash) and the general oddness of something massive going wrong. I like to blame the cut on Godzilla, or the monsters from The Event. Haven’t seen any of them though.
I really love the 48 hour film competition for these reasons: hanging out with my amazingly creative friends, messing around behind the scenes, creating new bizarre in-jokes, writing something that then gets filmed and edited, seeing it on the big screen (tonight!) and the sense of everyone coming together to do something fun.
My new Threadless shirts. My black Zombie foodchain one has got a lot of comments and is snuggly and warm. I’m wearing it’s toile about you tonight and in the photo above you can see part of the secretly geeky Darwin shirt as well.
Tim Bronson wrote another awesome article What do you really really want? I like to be inspired by him.
Honourable Mentions: 2 for 1 Steak night at Four Kings. OMG. Such good steak.
