Wednesday woes.

All Blacks played Manu Samoa today in a game that was pure torture to watch. By the time it was all over I wanted to:

1. Kick my brothers teeth in
2. Burn my house down
3. Karate Kid kick my TV from the wall
4. Pluck my eye balls out with a shrimp fork

Rugby is a game for winter. Samoa does not have winter. Because of these facts, today's game was unbearable. Sonny Bill Williams didn't pray hard enough to Allah during the national anthem because he had 80 minutes of suckage.

Have to give it up for the Bay reps in today's game.
I counted 6. Two from MAC and 1 from Tamatea Arikinui.
See? There is something beneficial here other than ice-cream.

Here's hoping the final round of Origin later tonight fills the void.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
