Things that I owe you guys:

1) A six month update
2) Pictures from our hike in Mt. Victoria town belt
3) 48 Hours film project update
4) A post on “the little things”

I have no excuses – last weekend was even a three day weekend! I’ll get on it, I promise.

In the meantime, here are a couple more reasons New Zealand, and specifically Wellington, is great (and interesting to new-comers like us):

• When kids graduate university (college=high school here), they are marched down the street in a parade wearing their caps and gowns – with pipe bands and everything!

• I saw not one, but two separate bike messengers in one day just leave their bikes outside buildings while they delivered/picked-up packages. No chains or locks needed!

Speaking of updates, did you see that that the judge and his pants are to be on TVNZ's "Tonight" news, um, tonight?

This Washington Post blog has been following the trial. It's hilarious! The judge broke down during his testimony.

haha! I did see that! The puss cried over a pair of pants? Sheesh! Is the trial over yet?

The testimony is over and the judge is supposed to give her ruling next week.

Hey, we got to march down the street with a pipe band for my college graduation, too! But I went to one of those crazy small public honors colleges where we didn't have a football team or fraternities, either, so maybe we're not a good example of American collegiate life....
