Cheers dudes.
All I wanted for my birthday was a pint. I drove to various bottle shops around Melbourne looking for one of those novelty 5L kegs to drink at home. No where had them ... sigh .
I had to drink beer from a bottle . Hard life.
My house mate made me a fort out of sheets in the lounge and gave me the entirety of Xena warrior princess on DVD, so that was mean. And my gf got suitably drunk with me and made me a fake bacon and egg pie so that was also pretty mean.
Boris johnson going into ICU was the real bday present tho.

Lockdown party with my housemates lastnight. Did heaps of speedy mdma and chewed my face off. Played the kiwi version of articulate, I dj'd playing a mixture of uk82, cocksparrer and assorted nz pop punk bands.
Anyway the point of this story is I invented a new shot. I coined it a Copper Knob, 50%vodka and 50% stones ginger wine, but in a tall German styled shot glass.
Goes pretty good.
Had way too many, too hungover and gotninntonthe bloody Mary's. Covid 19 pretty good so far for me

So faaaarking glad it's the mid-semester break so we can pause and take stock of moving courses and shit online overnight... undergrads seem to be generally stressed out and not coping that well (despite us being told they are "digital natives, and might even be able to show us a thing or two!).

NZ is going to be pretty reamed by the end of this, got a few friends dealing with fucked up shit and picking up the pieces as businesses implode, or property settlements get fucked up (imagine trying to get bridging finance for an indefinite period for your first home because the vendor is an impatient cunt).

The mrs has been roped into a team as part of the all of government response. Spends all day writing reports and briefings that she can't talk about. Seems hectic as fuck.
I think it's lint.

Dude at work was going through this, not first home but hadn't been able to sell existing home due to lockdown, still found bridging finance incredibly difficult to get. Fortunately his lawyer managed to convince the vendor to not be a dick and extend settlement

At least a couple of members of an Auckland band caught it on tour. No mention of it hitting them too hard though, and good to know they're recovering:

Yeah you know the usual, start off with bands like Kitsch and Somerset and then delve further into the obscure stuff like 5th threat, Elemeno p and the Tentacles of Destruction

Whichever of those three that sounds the least like Lager Louts.

Me too! Can confirm. They fucking BUTCHERED 'Rock n Roll Radio; also James's mic stopped working, so he abused the sound guy cause he thought he'd intentionally muted it, pretty sure it turned out James had just switched it off himself.
