this was my first ever go at it, and it was sooooo gooood. And not as oily as the official ones, which is a good thing imo.

here's the recipe. If having an indian wife is easier than this ... hell, i think i can manage 2 or 3. Give em a wage, open a tandori eatery.

my girlfriend showed me this today, in her neverending crusade to prove to me that white people are complete idiots and terrible at everything (except as i reminded her of invading and subjugating people. like indian people)

I found it pretty lolworthy. And Jon Stewart IS a goddamn foxy man!

On a related note, hearing a chap of perhaps Middle Eastern descent with an accent saying to his friends at the traffic lights/pedestrian crossing that he doesn't like Sydney, he likes NZ.

That's right you do!

I know exactly what you mean

That being said I absolutely love travelling, and have spent years away from NZ and would happily do so again given some of the phenomenal places I've lived in and visited. But I know I'll always gravitate home.

People who say "thank you" and really mean it - I put a lot of effort into being friendly and helpful and it's actually great when people realise that, appreciate it AND comment on it - makes the day so much better.

It's even better when they (of their own volition) hunt down the contact details for my manager and phone (and email) them saying I deserve a pay rise and the customer service they received was the best of any organisation (private market or public service) they have received.

I'll tell ya what, there needs to be a credit rating system for flatmates too, after the troubles we went through with my last flat, holy shit i'd kill for a referral system.

Of course the first warning sign was helping her move in by taking her things from her last flat which her previous flatmates left outside in the hallway for her (After changing the locks on her)

Thats a really good idea. Would love one for tenants who rent houses, have had some shockers.

Should insist on a reference from their previous landlord. It's not so uncommon.

client came up to me the other day and thanked me. Said that he had been with his grandson and had picked him up, and said to his daughter how heavy he is. she said he was 20kg- the amount of weight the client had lost since he started training. He said that made it really hit home, that he couldn't imagine how he had been carrying that extra weight around all that time. Same day my mum rang me up to tell me she has hit 57kg (12 months ago she was over 80kg) and plans to be able to benchpress her own bodyweight and do bodyweight chinups by christmas (she can do 3x10 sets of 40kg bench atm, so a 1RM of 57 isnt too unimaginable imo)

-warm fuzzy feelings-

Since I posted in the GMG thread about coddling children I should post in here about the laundry detergent ad which extols the virtues of kids getting dirty, which I love. All good childhoods should involve lots of germs, grime, mud, grass stains, and blood stains. Also tree-climbing, hurtling down hills on skateboards, jumping into rivers from ropes tied to swings, bicycles, and jumping off things that are 'too high' for you to safely jump off. The summer is the best time for all of these, so I just took a warm fuzzy, moment to remember summers of ruining togs my lying on hot concrete after getting out of the water, falling off my bike, swinging off trees into rivers, and scraping my legs on trees. I loved being a kid, and I got REALLY dirty in the process.

Not so straightforward.

Nice guy flats with a bunch of strangers. Strangers turn out to be dickheads. Flat gets to be known as a dickhead flat. Nice guy wants to find somewhere new, but the landlord only has bad things to say about dickhead flat. Nice guy left with a bad referral?

Surely the landlord has some inkling of who the dicks are in the flat? Like, if some clown smashes a hole in the wall, I hope you're saying to the landlord "Wasn't me, man. I don't even like those other guys. Remember, I always pay my rent on time! You got my back, right?"

That works with some landlords, but if it's being managed by Quinovic (or similar) or a landlord that doesn't care that you weren't the one who did it, you're fucked.

I got out of the flatting scene early this year. Just me and the missus now, renting a privately owned apartment. <3

What oils my gears: dealing with an individual owner of an apartment, rather than a property management company

Had to laugh at the guy across the street tyring to rent out his house. He has put the "RENT ME" sign right next to some covered up grafitti and on a fence board that he hasn't bothered to fix.
Anyone wanting that house would know he is a lazy and shit landlord.

sounds like my previous landlord... we had 1 tap replaced in 4.5 years... then he wants to up the rent from 300week to 380 week... most likely because i told him the fridge was old, and the fridge's freezer would super froze things, and the milk would often freeze in the fridge, and the oven made a HUGE VIBRATING NOISE WHEN IT WAS ON
