I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about!

Lecturers take lectures of undergrads. Tutors, postgrad students, take the small group tutorials.

I think I confused you by mentioning I bumped into one of my lecturers from last year after? That was in another building entirely. I went to find a water foundation and he was there too, heading back to his office.

Hey Ax!

You're a South Island boy aren't you? Do you know much about Greymouth? Hubby's looking at a job opportunity down there...

Damn it.

I thought you said your lecturer was taking a 500 student class...you meant teaching? or I misread it? anyway i get it

I think the best places to hang out are libraries and non-mainstream bookshops, for fuck's sake.

I have had an awful cold for 4-5 days. stuffy nose won't stop running, cough/junky lungs, sneezes. just had to buy a big ol' box of tissues with lotion because my nose fucking hurts.

The guy I bumped into was the lecturer in my Terrorism in Modern Conflict course last year. This year, he's the lecturer in some course on democracy with over 500 students.

I feel fine, but the sweating is an irritation.

I'm actually from the Kapiti Coast, just out of Wellington, but my mother's side of the family is from the South Island and I've spent a fair bit of time there, mostly Otago/Canterbury. Only been to Greymouth once, when I was a child. From memory, it's well past its glory days, pretty quiet, but still the most significant town on the Coast by far (off memory, it's got about 13,000 people; Hokitika and Westport fail to break 5,000). Sorry I can't give you anything more specific. I'd love to go back to the Coast again. Gorgeous part of the world and it sticks fondly in my memory.

Thanks for that!
I was there once in 1994, and it was a stunner back then with it's scenery and lifestyle. There could be an opportunity too good to miss in a new mine opening up. I hate mines, but this could be too good to miss.....we're just starting to look into it, and if it's promising we'll fly down for a closer look before deciding. It's a big decision to uproot the family and close down/sell a successful business - but we're just exhausted from life up here...
