Touche. I'm not really across the demographics of Chch as much as the rest of NZ. Do you know if it's changed much because of the earthquakes?

More from Pacific Island Countries and Maori (still NZ's biggest minority) than mostly being from East Asia surely... Agree that CHCH is still pretty Pakeha though! If not as residents I would have expected more Pasifika people in the staff, because I think most of the nursing home workforce is made up of immigrants

As a very hungry person - seconded! I sometimes feel awkward at cocktail functions because I get really hungry and need to stuff my face (I kind of hide my extra helpings in my wine hand)

Edited because I meant to say I would be totally sweet about it if I had warning though because I would make some sure to eat a Read more

I think this gives me a re-read excuse so I can try and decide! It's been a while but I really remember thinking travel within a building was all portraits (even if they had others), visiting other portraits of themselves just Hogwarts. Will be fun to see!

I'm pretty sure that the wizards in St Mungos and the PM's office are past headmasters which is why they can travel outside the castle and to their portraits - even the one in Sirius' house Phinnelius (sp) Sirius says was Hogwarts' least popular headmaster ever...

I think there is a spell/process involved in making wizarding photos - because one of the Creevy brothers mentions it in book 2 when he is all excited about his new camera that someone has promised to show him how to make pictures move. That made me think there's something going on with portraits too. I always figured Read more

I'm similar, and I really like being naturally strong even if I'm never going to be slender and waif-like! Reminds me of how much I hate when people equate "athletic" with extremely thin, when I play all the sports! Also I like carrying my own heavy things/other people etc

Let's just hope that one day he rolls over from one of his lovely lady or man friends, lights a cigarette and makes a dry british joke at the foolishness of his youth?

Fair enough! Opinions are made to be different I guess. I think he is being judgey about the number of sexual partners people have, but also that relationships are about more than just sex, and is clear that this applies to both men and women, so I inferred that this means you should judge on the quality of the Read more

Not a supporter of this guy - I don't like anyone judging anyone else's choices, but I do think you unfairly quoted him with the test drive thing. I more read it like he was calling out those attitudes towards women and sex if anything. Read more

Totally get ya - there's a lot of projecting from anti diet people, like "I don't like salad so you must be lying" and it's like no! my salad is delicious and full of cheese and lentils and tastes delicious. Also I don't like dessert that doesn't have chocolate in it and people never believe me but look at me like I'm Read more

I agree with most of your points, but think that part of the point is that this is placed on a lake that is pretty big, and next to a national park and native bush, so it would be difficult to search the whole thing. When legitimate searches go on in those regions in real life it can be really hard for them to find Read more

But he wasn't her brother - that was just a lie to try and mess with her. I thought it was just trying to alienate her, and she had to stick to her guns and was right..

Are you secretly a hairdresser because that looks way profes! I cut my fringe a few weeks ago and did it too short, so had to have it all pinned up for weeks until I could unveil it to the world. Sad story.

I remember being sad after having this debate with a guy friend (we may have been drinking wine and planning an epic steam punk/fantasy novel, because, you know, Saturday night) and he said my part of it couldn't be a matriarchal and egalitarian society because this wouldn't read realistic. I was so angry! My Read more

I always wonder when do they get pigeonholed as one race or the other? Unless they go uber descripty on skin tones, a lady with dark hair or whatever could look anyway you like! Though to be fair that is more science fiction possible than high fantasy. Read more
