Well I haven't posted here in awhile manily because I was writing about my life day by day which frankly isn't that interesting. So I was thinking about what else I could do with this blog What I think I'm going to do is continue writing about what I get up to when it is warrented but mainly to post about the first thing I see/do on the internet each day. This should give something to write about each day.
On another note how in the world did this blog become PR 4, it isn't targeted in any way and backlinks are minimal, this blog doesn't deserve PR 4.

Went for a cruise up to a little town about 2 hours from where I live today and dang there's some hotties up there, there mustn't be much to do up there coz everyone has hard core modded cars.
Onto a completely different topic.
I remember watching Super Size Me that documentary about the guy who ate nothing but McDonald's for 30 days and thinking "yeah I wouldn't mind seeing what would happen". Well Morgan Spurlock has made another film where he goes to jail for 30 days , I can't wait to see this, I've always wanted to see what real jail is like but I can't be arsed doing anything illegal.

I had a lazy monday, one thing about drinking with the flu it makes a cold stay around longer.
I also got my proper photo drivers license in the mail, the photo sucks, I kind of look like a woman, time for a hair cut I think. I've been dragging this license topic through my posts alot mainly because I haven't got anything better to say, so hopefuly that will change.

I went out clubbing on Friday night, I went with my brother and his girl I also bought along my flu, I didn't want to go out but after a few Tequilas my flu felt OK. Not much happened, danced with a few chicks met a few people and gave my cold to a bunch of drunk people. I paid for it yesterday, major hangover and flu.

It's about time, I was ready for it 5 weeks ago (kind off) . Each time I went for my drivers license something would happen and I wouldn't be able to take it. The whole process today took about 2 hours, I'd have to line up, fill in some forms get back in line, do the test, get back in line, take the photo, get back in line and finally I received my temporary learners license, my proper one should be coming in the mail in a few days. All I need now is a car.

I've backed up all my important stuff and my computer seems to be OK now. In the last few posts I've been talking about the boy racer scene in the Hutt Valley I haven't been going lately but I read in the news paper that the police cracked down on it last thursday, they arrested a bunch of people and impounded about 12 cars. I could tell something was up weeks ago it seemed like the police were trying new things out and it seems to have come into action last thursday. No more sleepless thursdays for the valley community LOL.

Shake it!, that made it work again. I think my computers gonna fry soon, it kept flicking on and off then it wouldn't turn back on, after about an hour of trying to make it work I shook it and it turned back on like nothing had happened. I aint taking any chances so I've backed all my important stuff up, docs, photos of the family and friends, bookmarks, save games and I've taken note of what I've got installed. I had a computer blow up on me before and lost a lot of stuff, bookmarks were a big loss then but there's social bookmarking networks that handle that now so that's good.
I know I'm going to forget something though.

We have this trolley pusher in my town who sings at the top of his lungs as he pushes trolleys, I see him nearly everyday, always makes me smile.
I think he should be famous like Blanket Man , I think awhile back they fired him or tried to fire him after some complaints about his singing, he's still there though singing his heart out.

Gimme Your Stuff Is like an ultra pen-pal blog. The idea is to set up trades of items significant to your part of the world in exchange for something from theirs.
Some of the exchanges in progress range from clothing to food between countries such as America and Australia.
I put their button on my blog awhile back and hadn't got around to posting about it, i think it's a very cool idea, I might try and set up a trade for some Twinkys, never had a Twinky before.

I've been getting into the car scene a fare amount as you can tell from my previous posts, so I thought I'd do a little net searching to find anything about it in Wellington. Not a lot out there, found a couple of interesting sites, one is NZhondas.com, It's a club for honda owners it has a very active forum, some honda related news and your able to create a profile for your car which is the feature I like, get to know a little more about the cars I see around town. Most of the profiles have a few photos a list of specs and mods and you can comment on them also. If your a honda owner in New Zealand you should defiantly check this site out.
Girlspeed.co.nz is another cool site for the car chick in us all, has a forum and member profiles, the main page isn't updated very often but it's still a cool site to check out.
I keep meeting people who tell me about websites but I keep forgetting them, I gotta remember next time.

Forgot to mention the Hurricanes semi-final, it was my first time at a Hurricanes game and it was cool, the crowd gets right into it and it was good that we won, nail biting stuff. The Crusaders won against the Bulls so theres gonna be no home game for theHurricanes which sucks but it should be a better game.
Went for my learners today I waited an hour in line to sit my test but when I got to the counter they said I had the wrong kind of Birth cert, so I have to get the proper kind and go back next week, I was so close.

The last couple of days have been a blur, I'm still drinking to much. First up we went out to the Hutt Valley to see what was up, nothing new so we went back to that car park in Wellington, when we got there it was empty so we decided to go back into town as we were going back through the tunnel we spotted the drifting train so we followed them back up. There's a restaurant or something that looks down on this park, we thought dang their not going to like this, so the drifters stopped and the restaurant people started to yell "do some more" and stuff like that which was cool.
The drifters went hard out after that, starting with one car going around then 2 cars and then up to 3 at the same time which is an awesome site to behold.
Here's a couple of videos I took on my camera phone, stink quality though, I need me a 10 megapixel that would be neat.

My feet still hurt like hell, not sure if their going to hold up at the cake tin this friday, my friend got a couple of tickets to the Hurricanes semi-final match, should be good. Won't be anything like the Sevens though that was out of it.

I hadn't gone clubbing for about a month or 2, last night was ok, I think I'd rather stay in the car.
Maybe I'm getting to old for it, the clubs all smelled sweaty the toilet floors were all puddled in piss, getting asked for I.D at every club and having to go outside for a smoke, I am getting to old for it.
I also wore a new pair of shoes which was a bad idea, now my feet are all messed up.
Once the night was over we all went our separate ways, I'd forgotten that the trains here in Wellington on a Sunday morning don't start till 7am, which is stupid because Saturday night is the busiest party night of the week.
It wasn't to bad though at least I was with good company.

Same old thing, driving around in cars not doing much more than that. I can't wait until I pay of some of my bills so I can start going clubing again, so much more interesting than watching others clubing from a car window.

Went out the Hutt Valley tonight, it was pretty much all over the place, seems the police have a new plan going, cut off one place by parking at one of the spots all night and now it seems they have undercover cops, we saw one dude pulled up by a really rangi car, the police were in hoodies and beenys, very scruffy LOL, my thoughts are if the police parked a car in each of the 3 spots people would stop coming I really don't know why they just don't do that.
Didn't see that much interesting stuff, so we went into Wellington. We tried to get lost, going up streets we didn't know, stuff like that, in doing that we stumbled upon a spot which we didn't know existed, it was all setup for some Farley mad drifting. One car sounded like a jet car and there were 2 other cars doing tandem drifting around cars and cones, it was cooool womp womp, I took some video of these cars doing there stuff, I'll get these up when I've got some spare time. The night was well worth it, saw a bunch of new stuff and got us out of the normal routine, which is getting old.

Saw a strange thing today, I went down to my local city centre to do a few things, I decided to take a break and sit down and have a drink, out of the blue a couple of youth gangs emerged into the car park I was facing, both ready to take each other on.
Lots of yelling and lots of bring it on, I noticed one of the people walked over to a car, he opened the door and pulled out a base ball bat and a gun, I was like WTF, LOL I continued to watch maybe I shoulda moved. More yelling ensued but the opposing gang backed off a great deal, someone said cops and the dude with the gun threw the base ball bat and took off in the car.
I'm used to seeing fights but I've never seen a gun pulled before. What's my town coming to.
I was going to video it with my cell phone but the battery was dead, I always miss the good stuff because of that.

Been out 4 nights this week which is a bit to much, now I have no money and have to wait for pay day again.
My posting to my blogs has been rather slack also.
Well the party began on Wednesday and ended Saturday, I hope my liver is ok LOL.
Not much happened really, just the usual party stuff.
In between all this, at the sober times I had a driving lesson which was cool I only stalled 3 times LOL.
Well time to veg out and get over this killer hangover.

I've never really felt the need to get my drivers license, I've always walked caught a lift or whatever, my friends have always had cars so I just got them to drive me around.
But now I want one, I don't know why I just want one.

I haven't had much time lately to post, so I'll give a run down of what I've been doing the last few days.
My friend got a new car and we've been driving every where all the time. Every Thursday night hundreds of boy racers meet in various locations around the Hutt valley, there's 3 main spots where different things happen, we mainly go just to watch others, see some nice cars and meet people. The police are always around which keeps the speeding down, apart from on the high way which is usually people racing to see who can get to speed first.
On Friday and Saturday we just cruised through Courtney Place in Wellington, just watching the party goers and passers by, LOL drunk people are funny.
Well I'll try not to be so busy LOL, womp womp.

Didn't get up to much today watched a couple of movies, 40 Year Old Virgin which was ok had a few funny moments, seemed to break away from that Dodge Ball, Wedding Crashers feel a little which was kinda refreshing, The Cave was pretty exciting in a strait to video feel sorta reminded me of the Poseidon adventure.
My friend got his new car today, he already put his chromies on, looks fat all it needs now is to be lowered, tinted and exhausted.

We left at 9:30am and arrived in Taupo at 5:30pm, we had to make a few detours but that's a long trip in, especially if your in the back of a small sports cars. We stayed at a Go-Global Backpackers at $22 a night, Cost me $66 for 3 nights, the room we had slept 4, two sets of bunks with toilet and shower. Go-Global had a very nice feel, nice common room, huge deck where we spent most nights drinking up and meeting other travelers.
We went and saw a few of the sights that Taupo has to offer (most of the time we were to hung over to fully take it all in).
Huka Falls always amazes me. So many tourists there though, had a hard time walking around because of everyone taking photos.
We also went and watched people bungy for awhile, I hadn't seen this before, was pretty freaked out seeing the first couple jump, wish I had, had enough money to have taken the plunge. Taupo Bungy.
Most of our time was spent at the backpackers though, met a lot of cool people there, the whole place reminds me of a college dorm, very relaxed. Go-global is located directly above a Bar with about 5 other bars located with in 30 seconds walk of the backpackers. I had a little trouble getting into the bars the first night ( I was farely drunk ), what I noticed is that the drinking laws in Taupo are a lot more strict than what they are down here in Wellington.
Very good time up there in Taupo, I'd recommend Go-Global as a place to stay very cheap and convenient.
The trip back to Wellington took us about 11 hours, huge traffic on a road that should have taken us about 15 minutes took us 2 and a half hours.
I always appreciate home more when I've been away, it's so good.

Over Easter I will be going to Lake Taupo, I like to be organized so I thought I'd make a check list of what I need to take on this trip.
Lake Taupo is one of my most favorite places to go on holiday, it has so much to offer. Although I'm mainly going to be partying, if I had more money I'd go jet boating, bungee jumping or trout fishing instead.
So here's my item check list ( I always like to take more than I need " better to have it and not use it than to need it and not have it")
Taupo trip check list.
- Sports shoes, dress shoes
- Socks x 3
- Pants x 3
- Underwear x 4
- T-shirts x 4
- Shirts x 3
- Jacket x 2
- Caps x 2
- Towels x 3
- Toothbrush - paste
- Hair product
- The big Five - Hanky, Wallet, Gum, Mobile phone, Watch
- Sleeping bag
- Pillow case
- Food-assorted noodles, beans and pies
- and a big hefty bag to store it all in
If I've left any crucial items out of the list please suggest what I could add, I'm always forgetting one thing I could have used on my trips.

Big day of cars, babes, noise and jet cars at Westpactruststadium. When we left for 2hot2handle gray clouds were rolling over (thought, dang if it rains no car action) but as we entered town it was sunny as. We parked the car and walked what seemed like a 30 miles to the stadium, after paying the $25 entry fee our first site was a humvee and a line of about 10 new minis, we heard a racket and ran to the edge of the multi storey car park and witnessed the first coolness, a monster truck crushing cars. We stood here for about an hour watching the drag races and such, they closed off Waterlooo Quay (a main entrance to the city) for the race strip.
We entered into the stadium where all the show cars were being displayed, my first site was a chopper, love these things.
Walking around the stadium they had all types of vehicles, classic cars, imports, hot rods, super cars, army vehicles, bikes, all sorts of stuff. I'll let the pictures do the talking.
Some of the custom jobs on the imports were pretty out of it, custom audio and entertainment systems, custom paint jobs, I always wander how the afford all this.
After circling the stadium a few times we headed outside for the night parade, picked a spot about 3-4 meters ground level near the race track. Parade started out with some Irish foot stomping then on to an Elvis impersonator (who was actually pretty good) and the announcer even sang some Meat Loaf. Then came the double decker bus, vintage cars, classic cars, hot rods. All the promo girls from the stadium were in the parade and also some dancers from a local strip club (hehe?).
After this things got pretty hard out, 3 drifting cars entered the track, going pretty hard all over the place, I was surprised none of them crashed, those dudes can drive, at the end of that they smoked the track out something bad.
The jet cars were something I was really looking forward to at this event, I haven't got any photos of them coz at the time I was freaked out. See the photo above that's where the 2 jet cars were positioned, when they started up it wasn't to bad but when the after burners started to kick in you could feel the shock pulse through your body and when they really kicked in everyone (including me) ran for any kind of protection, people nearly got knocked of their feet.
The nitro funny car was something I didn't know much about, all I knew was they were talking about it exploding over the load speaker all day, so I was a bit freaked. It took off like a rocket and it wasn't even a proper run.
The whole day was awesome, well worth the $25, I really wanted to go to the second day but hey there's always next year.
I need a new camera LOL.

Today I went to Autosalon, Automotive lifestyle show series it was pretty good, not as many cars as I thought there would be but still pretty cool.
Got there pretty late so I missed out on a lot of freebies, saw people walking around with all sorts of free junk, got me a few free car magazines though so im good with that. There were about 40-50 cars there some primo some not so primo. They also had live entertainment in the way of the Goldcoast Girls from Australia or something and a bikini contest which was pretty cool.
This was by - far my favorite, big as truck, huge rims, great art work with a huge entertainment system that popped up from the rear of the truck.
well im off for a cruise into town to see where the party's at.

The day before today I bought an Xbox360 and I must say it was the biggest achievement I achieved that day, so I hooked it up, fiddled with the menus and stuck in Condemned: Criminal Origins and started to play, my first thoughts were "dang this reminds of the new doom on the PC but slightly less plastically lookin", I walk the character into one room and saw the view through a window and it gave me a few shivers.
Ok, that got me excited because id also purchased The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion , a game I have wanted to play ever since I'd heard about it, I loaded it up set it up and started to play, the moment that made me go WOW was when I emerged from the dungeon from the first part of the game and saw hills stretching of into the distance, the second WOW moment was when I climbed one of those hills to the top and saw the snow with the sun glowing down upon them, it popped right off of my T.V screen.
Another game I want to play is Fight Night for the Xbox360, but I have to wait for that coz now Im broke.
Well that was the highlight of my day, enough posting back to the Xbox360.
