You can sleep all you like when you're dead

A travel blog entry by erotergum


... I haven't had one for six months - I can't believe it's been that long. But it's getting so ratty now I probably should get a few inches trimmed off. Nothing too drastic, I can't cut it its just too fabulous. I've had such a busy week and a busy day today especially I could have done with an early night. But my dad always says you can sleep all you like when you're dead. To be honest, now that I'm alive I may as well make the most of it - pass me the vodka! Ero Tergum ...

Crazy times

Mon, Tues, Weds School

Thursday, Rugby practice, CONCERT
Loud music and crowded people pushing and shoving but SICK music. So gooood. There were a lot of mixes of songs that I love. Justin Timberlake etc.

Friday morning we took off for camping in Cromwell. Stayed at a cute little campsite. We hit the lake right away and did some tubing, water skiing and wake boarding.

Saturday I hitched a ride with some pals to Wanaka, spent the day on the lake. ...
