San Nakji Revealed

Two things today,

First of all a picture of me...

I took this photo today as I met the band Snow Patrol. This Scottish / Northern Irish band may have remained in obscurity but for one break through song known all around the world, especially to Grey's Anatomy watchers. (which is not me!).

I hung out with them for a bit while they sang an acoustic version of the song. Not really my cup of tea, but it was awesome hanging out with them all the same.

The second thing that happened was three earthquakes struck Auckland, where I live. I felt my couch shake and thought that perhaps we were being hit by friendly fire from Iraq. Nope, earthquakes. Whatever next? Mrs SN was quite prepared to pack our stuff and move back to Korea quick haste. I think I have talked her out of it. They were small quakes!

Bell of the Ball

I like mascots
This bell is creepy
He is yellow
The colour of evil
Hear him honk like a swan
Case closed

Makes you think

When you have a moment...

Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up every two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are flat?

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but Then they check when you say the paint is wet?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an "S" in the word "lisp"?

What is the speed of darkness?

Are there specially reserved parking spaces for "normal" people at the Special Olympics?

If it's true that we are here to help others, what are the others doing here?

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Who was the first person to say, "See that chicken there... I'm gonna eat the next thing that comes outta its bum."

Why do toasters always have a setting so high that could burn the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but don't point to their bum when they ask where the bathroom is?

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs!

Can blind people see their dreams? Do they dream??

If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Why do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

OK, stop singing and read on . . . . . . . .

Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet Soup?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him on a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it arrive any faster?

Natural Nature

My back hurts
No work for me
But home is too boring
Oh woe is me
Has KS gone outside?
Perhaps he will be some time?

Les Crickettes

I went to see New Zealand do battle with Australia in the cricket yesterday. For the record New Zealand won. Yay. However as far as you are concerned, be more worried about the awful Australian uniform (hereby known as dirty orange) and what the heck this player is up to!

I like ducks
After eating duck bulgogi in Korea
I love ducks
They have personality
They are the San Nakji of the bird world

Tagged, Zounds!

So it's been a while since I was tagged. My good friend from France, Cergie. If you haven't checked out her blog, I really recommend it. She shows us another side of France.

Anyway her tag is called... *drum roll* (pause while San Nakji quickly checks Cergie's blog quickly for the title)... Doesn't seem to have one so I shall call it Get Zapped.

In Get Zapped I have to tell you 6 weird or interesting things about me. I may even tell the truth... Maybe. So here goes,

1) I was deported by the Czechoslovakian government.

2) I own a piece of the Berlin Wall.

3) My first overseas trip was when I was 6 weeks old. My destination? Pago Pago.

4) I was once a Buddhist.

5) I can name all the monarchs of England from 1066 to the present.

6) I want to marry Oprah

Well, that's it. I would like to tag the following people,

KS, Minty, Deepa, GH, Friar, Cool Buddha, Ashley, RSL and David. Go to it kids!

Native Bird of some kind

I don't know what this bird is
It doesn't know me, so we are even
I am sad about Anna Nicole
The Daily Show made jokes about her
I laughed
I felt guilty
I like birds

**News Flash**

It is an Australian Coot
I am sad

Cygnet for Evil

I now write in free poetic style
Got a problem with it?
Want to step outside?
I don't
Cygnets are cute
I love their fluffy bodies
Then they grow into pure pecking evil
What an enigma

It's That Kind of Day

Hot today
Not hot like desert hot
But hot enough for us
Even birds like to sunbathe on the beach
On bricks though?
Each to their own I guess

It's late again
A butterfly and a turtle hang out
I am tired
Walk the Pooch I must
Need a shower too
It's hot

Words Without Pictures

Lateness to bed and earliness to rise meant that I didn't work on any photos last night. This means that I have no photos to post. However, one thing I have learned about blogging is that you have to be regular. The doctor would tell you the same thing. Eat some bran, solves the problem. Think of this post as e-bran. E-bran, the food of champions!

Anyway, as I type I really have no idea what to say. This may surprise you as this post seems so professionally put together, but yes, it is off the cuff so to speak. I find that a lot of people in the blog world have a lot to say. Many are braver than me in talking about their personal lives. This is not for me. What goes on with my family is between me and them. I am pretty sure also that most people wouldn't care.

There is a show in Melbourne on the 28th of February. The show is Little Britain Live, I am a big fan of the TV show it is based on. On a spur of the moment thing I bought tickets to Australia and bought the best ticket to the show I could. I found the cheapest flights to Melbourne mean that I will stay in Australia for a grand total of 26 hours. Mrs SN couldn't come, so to make things worse it is just me... The more I think about it, the more I think I am crazy. But I am also excited that I will get to see such a brilliant show! It is one of the biggest spur of the moment things I have ever done... What about you guys? Done anything crazy like this? Maybe this isn't crazy?

Anyway, I am very excited! Yay!

Artesque Part Deux

For years I thought this was a New Zealand plant. Little did I know everyone else in the world had stolen it! For the record, we call it Toitoi.

Mimi is Missing

This was posted in my park a few weeks ago. First of all, how do you lose a turtle? If you lose it, how are you going to find it again? Is it going to come when it's called? Hmmmm...

Still, if you see Mimi please call the number provided ok?
