Cancer (Star Sign)

31 May

This was emailed to me today (thanks Meredith):

CANCER – The Protector (June 21 – July 22)
Moody, emotional. May be shy. Very loving and caring. Pretty/handsome. Excellent partners for life. Protective. Inventive and imaginative. Cautious. Touchy-feely kind of person. Needs love from others. Easily hurt, but sympathetic.


Highly Impressive TV ads

30 May

Dr Hone Ropata returns to Shortland Street from the 4000th episode for six weeks and this is being celebrated by two very impressive ads.
They’ve had me sitting there, wondering how they were made! A reason why I am so impressed is because these types of “skills” are not known of or used here in NZ. And they really are incredible.

Dr. Ropata and Chris:

No Clear Interview…yet

29 May

A few weeks ago, I visited TelstraClear and got to check out their secret Clearnet room and meet some people working on their new portal. I also got interviewed about Oriental Street Murder.

Because so many people have been asking me about it, I’m going to post here that I don’t think it will be online. Don’t get me wrong – the people I met are fantastic, but I don’t think they will put the interview video online.
Their video site on Clearnet doesn’t have a category that would suit the interview. The video’s not about games or news; it’s about home made video content. It wouldn’t make sense to put the video there yet, which I understand.

Plus I’ve been told that technical problems are a reason why it’s not up yet – but that’s completely understandable given the site is only a few weeks old.

So maybe it’s not that far away, but still: there could be another chance for OSM to pop up in the media! Watch this space….

Amusing Metaphors

27 May

Unintentionally amusing metaphors written by high school English students:

* Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two other sides gently compressed by a Thigh Master.

* McMurphy fell 12 storeys, hitting the pavement like a paper bag filled with vegetable soup.

* Even in his last years, Granddad had a mind like a steel trap, only one that had been left out so long it had rusted shut.

* The plan was simple, like my brother Phil. But unlike Phil, this plan just might work.

* She had a deep, throaty, genuine laugh, like that sound a dog makes just before it throws up.

* The ballerina rose gracefully en pointe and extended one slender leg behind her, like a dog at a lamppost.
