have you noticed the cling film (food wrap) doesn't cling
dont start me on the mayonaise again, I have resorted to Paul newmans ranch sauce...so much nicer than the mayonaise, comes with high recommendation

get those in the US too - we stayed at the Big Boy Motel just west of Vegas which has the biggest thermometer in the world outside (or something akin to that) - nice breakfast, good Greek Restaurant opposite and a decent souvenir shop made up for the rubbish room

Who you referring to?

I did live in NZ.

3 years of the place.

Too long.

I don't mind the haka too much either.
