Thanksgiving 2012

Secret ... I don't want to deal with it this year, but alas trying to uninvite people turned out to be a son of a bee and we'll be having turkey on the 29th.

It won't be as extravagent as last year and I think we'll have it at Michelles house .. so when you read this Michelle, your table is bigger. I'll man the rest of the ship .. unless Mum lets us have it at hers, but then we'd have to invite the neighbors and they didn't make the guest list this year.

I just want a double double protein style from In-n-Out burger and I'll be thankful.
How do they make their fries!?

oh man we went to the states last month and high on my list to try was in n out burger! And we didn't! I can't believe it never happened. I did try 5 guys though and was a big fan. What are your thoughts on Panda Express?? p.s your paella looks amazing

In n Out is great, definitely a must. There is one right by LAX next time you are passing through, I know it's more a California thing, but a few other states do have the chain. Panda Express gets a thumbs up from me. It's the upper class dining of fast food restaurants .. kind of like the La Porchetta Pizza chain in NZ is the upper class of Dominoes.

I haven't even heard of La Porchetta? Don't think it's in Hamilton? But anyway I loved Panda Express! I thought it was awesome. We were in Las Vegas and Utah - Utah has them but somehow the stars never aligned...sadness. I'm very sorry to hear about your hubby in hospital : (

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!
