Holy blogging Batman!

Yvonne Craig, no relation FYI, died on Monday.

Back in 2004-5 Larry came home all excited to tell me about how he had lunch with Yvonne Craig at the Sherman Oaks galleria. I asked him who she was and he told me I was committing sacrilege not knowing.

She was BatGirl on the Adam West batman TV series. Learned this the hard way and by that I mean if anyone knew my husband you know he could talk the ears off of a wooden Indian. He trained her in 3D for a short while and they became good friends. I'd refer to her as 'his old girlfriend' because just like Captain Kathryn Janeway of the USS Starfleet Starship Voyager who later became Starfleet Vice Admiral and Jubba the Hutt slave Princess Leia, he was smitten by her.

She's gone to bat heaven.
Hope she's not my sister-wife when I get there Monsieur Shultz. I've seen her photos from the 60s don'tcha know.
I should read her book.

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!
