Last night I went to a free comedy show with a friend and we had a good time. There was 10 comedians from all over the world. Ireland,Scotland,England,NZ and a few others. Some of the accents were hard even for me to understand but the humour was really good. They were funny. We made the mistake of sitting front row so of course we got picked on and me being American (and Texan at that) sure gave them a lot of ammo haha. But, it was good fun!
One of my mates is leaving this weekend so we hung out yesterday and his going away party is this weekend so it should be good. I am looking forward to it. I also just had two friends leave to go back home so that was pretty sad but such is life. In about a month Ben gets here so that should be good. I am still looking for work at the moment. I am actually considering to be an "Auckland City Ambassador" basically just show new people around the city etc of course I haven't been here that long myself but, I am quite sure they train you and stuff. I am open for any kinda job!
Other than that I am just hanging out and doing my thing enjoying life. Obviously there has been some sadness in my life recently but, you can't control life you just have to roll with the punches and enjoy the time you have on this earth so that is what I am trying to do. I saw Leslie Nielsen died yesterday. Such a shame I loved Airplane and Naked Gun and all those funny movies. He was a funny guy. On a happier note I have had some great conversations via Facebook with Windee (the girl I inspired to do the skydive) and she really is a great girl and I am so glad she did it and I could help in my little way! It sure makes me feel good.I have a few things left on my to do list for today but nothing extremely major.
As you know I have been lucky enough to travel quite a bit and see alot of cities all over this world. Now usually I can rate a city based on the caliber of its street performers. I have seen some really really terrible ones and some not so bad ones. Actually here in Auckland they really are not too bad as a whole. There is some fairly talented people here. I enjoy listening to their music and whatnot. Today I have seen some interesting characters haha. I saw a guy in a full length bear suit (including the head bit) and its about 26 today. For my American readers that is high 70's low 80's. I also saw a guy in a huge full length body sign (the kind you wear) and it said "GIVE ME 1 MILLION DOLLARS" in big huge letters. Then below that in little letters it said "Or a Job" haha I thought it was clever.
Today is 30 days from my birthday! :) I will be going to a friend's going away party this weekend which should be good. I am getting geared up for Christmas in summer again. I had my first Dr. Pepper in New Zealand and it was the real deal..... it was soooo good!
Ok I am really done for now :P
Yall take care,Ty
