Oh, Life.

The first thing I thought of, when I heard the car making noises that weren't familiar, was Google. Lights came on that have never come on before in the 3 years we've had the car. It made me sweat driving back from town and seeing the lights, hearing the noises and psychosomatically smelling fire in the oil thingy or a burning engine - neither of which I've ever smelled before.

It's kinda like that Paula Abdul song when she takes two steps forward and three steps back.

Thanks to google, I ran a test on my car that required me to start the engine, yank off the positive line from the battery and see what happens.

What happened was the whole car shut down confirming that it's the alternator - so says the google test.

... and I was having such a good day.

Big Wednesday was 7.5 million tonight and I didn't buy a ticket.
I just need 1 not 7.5!

Wish you were here to tell me that everything was going to be a-ok. I'd be happy without a car and walk barefoot to Pluto and back if you were here.

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!
