Ask me about my guilty pleasure.

There are many people in the city today. Lots of them are wearing brightly-colored wigs or funny hats. Many are also wearing rather outrageous outfits. They are sports fans. Rugby fans, to be more specific. They are here because of The Sevens. Don't ask me what that means, because I have no idea. But people are really excited about it, and there are teams from many different countries here. There was a parade on Thursday that I saw by chance, and I got to see all the different teams go by, and I gave a little cheer for the Canadians, showing some North America spirit. Whoop.

There's not much for me to do this weekend. I really want to talk to someone about a few questions I have before I buy my bus ticket to go pick fruit, but I have to wait until Monday to call her. I'm hoping that I get the answers I want, so that I can be on my way this coming Friday or Saturday. I'm feeling pretty restless. But at the moment I'm sort of in limbo. I came into Wellington this afternoon so that I wouldn't be sitting around the house- I get pretty bored and I feel bad for not doing much to entertain the kids and I don't want to be underfoot and annoying for my hosts. I did take care of cleaning the bathroom and vaccuuming my bedroom this morning so I wouldn't feel guilty about leaving for the rest of the day. I caught the bus in, and I treated myself to a Subway lunch and a Starbucks latte and slice of cake, then I went to the public library and made myself comfortable and read there for awhile (I don't know why this is preferable to reading in my bed at the house- but it is), and in about an hour I'm going to go to the movies to see Big Fish. So I'm spending money that I really ought not to, but . . . I want to. So I do. Bad system, I know. Ah well. The alternative is boredom.

La la la. I don't have much to say that I haven't already said sometime in the past few days. I need to get moving, simply to have something interesting to share about my time here. When someone asks "so how did you spend your time in New Zealand?", I hope I have a better answer than "Well, I spent a lot of time reading or in internet cafes. Oh, and I drank coffee!" I guess it's up to me to make sure that doesn't happen.

Thus the fruit.
