The Oil spill in perspective

So I know the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is bad but I'm not good with understanding gallons and distance and all that but I found a map that allows you to put it anywhere in the world to see what it's like and here's if the spill happened over Christchurch:

Now that's crazy. It would take probably a couple of hours to DRIVE from one end to the other. At least! Imagine the damage it would do!

Reasons to be happy

So the last few weeks have been a bit rough. Not super bad, just grey. Hard to be excited about life with things going wrong and stuff and I hate this feeling and so I'm going to do something I never do which is try and think of all the reasons I should be happy and see if that can help.

In no particular order:

  • Tahu
  • My family, every single one of them.
  • I have a job that pays me well
  • I have travelled to amazing places that many will never get to see
  • We now have 2 cars that work beautifully
  • I walked to work this morning. I'm able to do that and it's good for me.
  • I am awesome at baking and cooking and I am in a situation where I can share with others this thing I love so much.
  • We can pay our bills this week AND go to the movies on a date tonight.
  • I get to see Ironman 2 tonight. Now seeing the movie isn't the good part, it's that I get to spend a Friday night with Tahu, no pressure, no worries. And he will be happy seeing the movie.
  • I have an awesome cat who loves me even though he doesn't live with me. Rokocoko comes home almost every time I am at mum and dads.
  • I completed the Duathlon earlier in the year in much less time then I had thought I'd have to take.
  • I don't wear makeup every day.
  • I live in the most beautiful country in the world. And that's not an exaggeration or biased.
  • I learn something new every day. Today it is that exaggeration has 2 g's. Who knew!
  • I do not live in a black and white world even though others may.
  • Writing this list is already making me feel better.
  • I have read 19 books this year already.
  • Today is Friday.
Anyone want to add to my list or tell me what's on theirs?

I love my Ipod Touch

So recently I bought myself an Ipod Touch and it's so amazing and I HIGHLY recommend them. One of the things I've done is download a couple of applications that edits photos so here's some results. No new photos, just playing with my favourites. I really love the colours in the polaroids.
