Ahmed’s Dreamatorium = Shark Jump

No.
Enough now Community. Dean’s half man half woman outfit and Ahbed’s ridiculous Dreamatorium was too much surrealism for me. Cancel series recording.

Dog Park

There have been no Pigalina updates since Monday because photos of mounds of tissues and other flu paraphernalia are unpleasant.
Tobias has been a loyal companion over the past few days, hanging out with me on the sofa while we cleared the back-log of cheesy horrors and rom-coms that had been recorded.
Today is my first outing, other than to the doctor or shop for tissues and pills. I have brought Tobias to the dog park to rid some of the guilt of him being trapped, bored, at home.
How he has so much wee in him is beyond me.

Quois Boy on the Plane? Quois?

When I was flying back from Rotorua last week there was an agitated boy sitting directly behind who kept wailing “Quois Mama? Quois?” He thumped the plane wall and sulked about the trip he was going on.
He then proceeded to wheeze and cough the phlegmiest coughs for the duration of the flight – without covering his mouth.
I have a question for him! Why don’t you cover your mouth? I am so ill. I blame him.

(By the way, that medicine is the worst I have ever tasted, avoid).

Mine! Mine!

Sitting at Lake Wanaka enjoying a delicious lunch I made the mistake of feeding a tiny bit of bread to a cute, tiny, bird. Immediately the seagulls gathered. Then one dive bombed my burger from behind me.
I had to eat around the area it had grabbed at. Too good to waste.

Queenstown Quest

We awoke to snow in Hawea which almost meant a whole day inside keeping warm. It soon stopped so the day’s plan – a trip to Queenstown was back on.
We headed to Below Zero, a bar in a refrigeration unit where the seats, sculptures and glasses are made out of ice. My fingernails felt like they were going to drop off and Daddy Pigalina’s juice froze solid.
On the way back to Hawea we stopped off in Kawarau Gorge where Mummy Pigalina did a bungy jump! Not our average Saturday.

Op-Shopping in Rotorua

I like to visit charity stores in other towns, you can pick up some great items, like this ornament.
(I didn’t buy it but I kind of wish I had, Mr Pigalina is delighted that I didn’t).
It appears to serve no other function than to be ornamental. Who designs, approves and makes these things?!
If you happen to be in the Rotorua area and want to secure this item it will most likely still be there. Head to the Salvation Army store armed with $2.
