PMSL at the dry suit/diving/girl bits thread

I have tried and failed on 3 occasions to go dolphin swimming - twice in paihia (or however you spell it) and once at akaroa - each time got cancelled by crap weather

in akaroa i wasnt too upset because it meant we got to try their suposedly wonderful fish and chips instead. they were at very best ok......

Okay then, no offence but what's it all about? ... the walking barefoot in the supermarket thing? I get it on the beach, on vacation, etc. but in the supermarket?
Enlighten me

I have throughly enjoyed my very short time in NZ so far:
What the hell is NZ cottage cheese about? I opened the stuff I bought about 2 hours after geting home from shopping so I know it wasn't out of date - it was glutinous, not creamy and it tasted like someone had pissed in it (only what I imagine pissed on cottage cheese would taste like)- needless to say it went straight in the bin. Is that how it is round here?
Just don't buy ETA Mayonnaise! Weird stuff.
Best Mayonnaise is acceptable and most like :scared: Hellmans.

oh. There is something a bit wrong about going 'into' places barefoot in my opinion. But sorry you miss it.

Very well thanks SarahB and thanks for asking.

Got back late last night from Melbourne, feel a bit shagged at the moment, but only in the exhausted sense and not the other (preferred) sense.

Mrs Nice Guy arrives 2 weeks tomorrow, will my todger hold out???

Whoops....as above, when I fly over Oz it is really brown and I mean really brown fields.

But when I was in Melbourne it was persisting down with rain and bloody cold at 7c!

Now back to the GC and a more pleasant 26c but I'm too tired to even go for a walk, early to bed tonight and go out and about tomorrow.
