What can one say about something so devastating that is affecting us all. To be honest my faith in the Universe is wobbling a bit now after too much awfulness already this year.

The boy is ok but his house has suffered damage. They are still without water and power but getting by. I can still hear his scream on the phone when another aftershock hit.

 I can't even conceive of how MaxL and hundreds of others are feeling with their family and friends still in the CTV building rubble. The emotions and trauma that they are all facing, and in the case of XChequer, having to deal with a grim discovery on a CD clean up mission.

I, like so many others, feel totally useless sitting in my ivory tower and not able to do anything other than keep in contact and send money. However, we have raised a staggering sum of money in the last 24 hours and the media is saying this is what Christchurch needs.

I thought of going down for the weekend to help physically in some way, but everyone is still too dazed to make decisions, and XChequers words were "keep living life as normal and tell us about it so we can remember that normality will return."

Normal life for Christchurch seems inconcievable at this point.

 Arohanui to all, kia kaha.

Not So Chip Time

Fuk! However the bits of flesh clinging to the lycra does amuse me.

Chip Time

Round the Bays again this morning. If anyone is interested in what my time was this is the chip number to look for.

I think I may have done my best time ever with this run, it's so much easier without a hangover. I forgot to look at the clock at the end so will have to wait for the newspaper tomorrow for my chip time.

I'm sure it's beer o'clock now!

Update: Time 43.18, which means a pace of just under 10k an hour. Place 2354 from a field of over 11,000. I'm happy. I beat the 20 year old work slave by over a minute, and am refusing to acknowledge her cry of ill health!

Though I swore I'd never do it again, of course I have, so have been quiet of late because I've been putting together another lesbian event. I have booked this gorgeous woman.

No need to explain why I just HAD to do it.

I see from news reports last week that some astronomer has said that the stars have all shuffled around, that there are now 13 constellations, and that everyone is no longer the starsign they thought they were. I like a gazillion other people regularly, yet randomly read my horoscope, but have now decided this astronomer must be correct.

Below is an excerpt from a large astrological site, it is an extract from the February forecast for my sign.

This month Venus will move through Capricorn, the very best sign for you, for there Venus will fill your house of true love. While you have Venus so beautifully oriented this month, why not pick up something new to wear that will make you feel simply fabulous? Two of your most sensational nights will be Friday, February 4, and Saturday, February 5 - divine on so many counts.

Though I did have very lovely and entertaining nights on the 4th and 5th, I think the fact that they were spent with friends keeping me laughing and smiling through yet another romance disaster is a tad incongruous.

I'm totally with this astronomer dude.

One of the teams finally had their Christmas event last weekend. I had purchased the beverages for them and organised for it to be at the venue. This morning when I got in I found a box in my office containing two bottles of bubbles and few bottles of soft drink, which I figured were the leftovers.

During my morning rounds I passed the team leader who said he'd put the leftovers in my office and commented on how precise the calculation of supplies had been. In the spirit of the catchphrase de jour I "took the compliment." However I still can't help thinking, accuracy and efficiency, that's what you pay me for!
