ahh yes, the potato jokes and yes, i think that'd suit him well.

me? if i were to marry, i'd probably just go down to justice of peace and bring my parents with me. i don't want a huge wedding. i don't even want a big reception. just a small party with only my closest friends, and an awesome deejay.

i know! i mean, i'll feel bad for them if everything doesn't work out like they've planned, but it's ridiculous to just assume everything will fall into place.

You know, the other option is to simply move Auckland to about where Hamilton is. Nice change of scenery for you lot.

My idea is to find somewhere scenic, invite about 30 people at most, and play awesome music. Fuck the traditional bullshit.

I wonder if any woman crazy enough to marry me would also be crazy enough to let me choose the music? Because I'd just choose GOOD music, regardless of how appropriate it is or isn't for a wedding ...

See, I'd just tell them up-front that they're being daft, it probably won't work, and when it all falls to pieces, don't come crying to me for sympathy because I'll have four words for them: "I told you so."

Damn straight, though the death metal would just be for the lulz value.

My friends come to me when they want a blunt assessment. When they want somebody to make them feel better about their stupid decisions, they have this habit of avoiding me. Funny how I usually find out anyway and give them a blast.

Hamilton's not far from their Te Awamutu hometown, actually.

I FOUND THE NIMBY POST I MENTIONED EARLIER!

God, I love this.

2) If you like to live in a green valley, ask yourself why hasn't it yet been dammed and if not when will it.
3) If someone is flying a Cessena to a grass strip near by once a week, ask yourself could it become an international airport one day?
4) If someone built a large industrial plant, nuclear research station etc in the middle of the bush, ask why before you buy the cheap land near by.
5) Just because access is via a dirt road to nowhere, could this one day be a 6 lane hwy to 250,000 homes
6) If believe anywhere with sand and water is not attractive to developers, check yourself into a phsyc hospital.
7) A railway that runs past the house following the national hwy route will only get busier.
8) Today's quiet sleepy village is tomorrow real estate bargins hunters paradise
9) If you don't want to live in a capital city, don't buy next to one, it will find you sooner or later.
10) There are no gareentees in life that everything will stay the same and sometimes you just have to move.
#9 in particular =

i doubt any of my friends want me to really blunt with them. because there'd be a lot of things i could say that they wouldn't want to hear. plus, i'm sure they'd say stuff i wouldn't want to hear
