A day in the city

It was supposed to be a nice clear day, around 18 degrees and I had the day off work.

The plan was to hit the city, camera in hand and take a whole bunch of photos, that was the plan.

But Mother Nature wasn’t so kind. She made the day cloudy, she put a whole bunch of cold wind it was too cold. I persisted and got a handful of photos I care to say are in anyway descent.

I also caught my first tram from the city all the way to St Kilda Beach, it’s a long trip but an enjoyable one.

The day ended by meeting up with David at his work and heading over to Crown for dinner with Mel and Linda at the Pub at Crown.

And a short stop at Galactic Circus where Melissa became trapped by on of the skill testers… one my little sister knows all about!

Then it was time for ice cream (New Zealand Natural’s Hokey Pokey is still the best) and finally home.

I’ve had the flu for about a week and a half now and am way over it, who know the human body could produce so much gunk within itself?

Oh you can see the pics over at my Flickr Photostream.

Black Snake Moan

Black Snake MoanBlack Snake Moan a crazy, strange movie starring Samuel L Jackson, Christina Ricci
and Jutin Timberlake.

This movie is about Rae, a young girl with an unusual habit. She has a fever or goes on heat and jumps on anything that comes her way. She comes into a bit of trouble when she upsets a guy and finds herself dumped near-dead at the side of the road out the front of Lazarus’ (Samuel L Jackson) home.

On seeing how Rae behaves, Lazarus takes it upon himself to “cure” this girl of her “fever”. Through the use of a heavy duty chain and some bible verses LazarusĀ  sets about to setting this girl right.

Justin Timberlake is Rae’s boyfriend who has head off to the war but returns when he is discharged because he suffers from anxiety attacks. He comes back looking for his girl…

It’s a wild ride and not one I’m sure I really get. But it is what it is. You may well enjoy it. I didn’t mind.
