A mate of mine returned home from living in the US. He said at the start it was alright but a week in it was getting really boring.

Also said the food was absolute sh*t.
I am working so days still go by reasonably quickly. But yeah the food is pretty bad. Complete stuff ups for meals quite regularly

Random question but has anyone ever spent a good amount of time or lived in NZ at all?

I got offered a relocation for my role for late next year if I wanted anywhere in Oceania, and going back to Melbourne doesn't interest me greatly at this point, was looking at Wellington or somewhere South Island...

Who here is excited about the upcoming Fresh Prince of Bel Air reunion special? Even Janet Hubert (first Aunt Viv) is going to be on it after she spent the last 25 years trashing Will Smith.

Yeah mate lived here for 2 years a few years ago and just moved back. I'm in Auckland where it's a bit more Sydney-ish, nice beaches, humid/warmer most the year. Wellington which is more Melbourne but with even worse weather, what they say about the wind there is true! Only been a couple of times both in "summer" and even though it was a clear day it was cold as fu**.

All depends what you want out of where you live. Haven't made it down to the South Island at all, I'm not a huge fan of the snow. But if you are Queenstown is where you want to be. If you want a laid back beachy vibe try Tauranga. If you want laneway coffee vibe, Wellington. If you want something that feels like a city but is still very laid back and has good beaches then Auckland.

Also where have you lived previously? I see you're in Austin now. What's that like?

Report this for identity theft!

In all seriousness sounds like the new account was a hassle for a few softies on the carlton board and I'm back in the OG form!

That's a very odd way to say thank you for sorting out your account issues so that you can re-gain access to your original account.

You're welcome, I guess.
