Flag of New Zealand  , South Island,
Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Things are definitely back to normal now. Work, blah, blah, blah.  It's summer time here at the moment and it has been a pretty good one so far.  Kathy and Peter have arrived home after their year long stint. Peter's book went to print and has been launched.  Check it out!

OK, here is the final Baa-az collection plus a random pic or two that I found my poor self to be snagged in. Sorry for any repeats.  It took a while to find them all as they were spread around different cameras.  Unfortunately I didn't get any in New Jersey.  Plus Baa-az developed a hole in his head and his brains threatened to fall out in Orlando, but he made it in the end.  Brains are still holding together for now.  I might stitch him up when I can be bothered. 

The Sheep
Every time I took a photo of the sheep.
Kathy: Linley, you don't have to laugh EVERY time you take a photo of the damn sheep.  It was funny the first time.  It's not funny anymore.
Me: (laughing) Yes it is. It's freaken hilarious EVERY time.

Random Outbursts and Thoughts categorized by State.

Los Angeles – There's funny little cute trees growing out of the concrete. 

New Jersey – Dis Pizza is da bomb!

New York – So this waitress doesn't know what a blonde with two legs is? 
New York (Citifield) - I don’t have anyone here to root for my home team with.
New York (ground zero) - Those cops checking under all the cars for bombs are making me feel really safe.
How about they stop those planes from flying overhead.  That’s just creepy.

Washington DC – Looking at my photos for the day.  What?  They’re not all the Lincoln memorial?  I can’t remember which one that is!!!  They should ALL be called the Lincoln memorial!
Yay!  Oh look it’s the penis thang!

North Carolina – We just changed States three times in five minutes?  We are awesome!

South Carolina – Fark it’s hawt!

Florida  (Miami) – That’s not a pool.  The spa pool is cooler than the pool-pool. 
Everyone is rich here, I don’t think they would appreciate my farm gummies.
Florida (Treasure Island) – I think I slept with a lizard last night.
Florida (Orlando) – Text to Lynn G:  I’m watching giant skating fish. What are you doing?
Atlanta – I think they like god a lot here.

Louisiana – I might be the only person around here that gets this excited over a 'shoe shine’ sign and I don’t even want no shoes shined y’all!
Louisiana (Nottaway) – Check out the little beds!  In the old days the people were short.  Like me.  I was like a man!  But not.
Louisiana  (New Orleans) – I’m not sure if I want to see dead people.
I’m in old crusty heaven.

New Jersey (TVD Con) – These people are beautiful in real life too.  F*ck it all! 
Daniel Gillies is actually more awesome than awesome.
I can’t ungrin this grin.  It’s stuck.

San Francisco – They have GOLD people here.  New Orleans, don’t settle for second!

Things I learnt. 

Yep, those places actually look like the TV programs and stuff.

The further south you get, they start to know what coffee is.

You can’t talk to random Americans like random New Zealanders at bus stops and stuff.  They grab their children and run.

It’s safe to say, New York is kinda big.

When crossing the road, look left, look right, look left again. Then run like f*ck.  The feeling you are about to be road kill, never goes away.

Shop assistant looks at you like you’re an idiot when asking for something? Did you use the wrong words? Is it your accent? F*ck you, it’s both.

Tui's are awesome.  Listen to our native birds songs.  I missed them.

More asking for things in shops. Get ready to be looked at like you’re from another planet.  Because, f*ck you, you are.

Taxi cab drivers like to tell you they haven’t found the American dream.

New Zealand actually IS pretty freaken green. 

Try Peter’s tactic.  Tell them you’re Australian.  Then you won’t be disappointed when they ask about the kangaroos.

The easiest person I understood was a Cajun talking, deer hunter, in a swamp in Louisiana.  NZ you should be afraid.

Take a Yankee with you.  They come in handy.

Buggering off now finally.  Arohanui Amerucka!  X
