Post No. 41 - That Lizard thing named

Those of you that have seen the photos with descriptions on Kodak Gallery will be aware how much my memory fails me when it comes to giving things their proper name!
Well today I am posting this picture for you:

so I did a little googling and came up with its proper name - it's a TUATARA and I sure hope I never come face to face with one without a pane of glass between us. The other thing that really freaks me out here is the Weta - like a humungous cockroach beetle thing and I swear I actually nearly stepped on one here in Palmy in the motel carpark - eeek!

Still at home today and getting really sick of it, although I have found a new way of passing the time - playing all the music I like that Graeme would be cringing at! So far this morning, I've had some Toni Braxton, Aretha Franklin, Elvis, Andy Williams and of course, some good ole Lionel (that would be Ritchie - NOT Blair!). Will be following all that up with some Norah Jones, Eva Cassidy, Ultimate Dirty Dancing and of couse, Chick-Flick Love Songs. A pure girly heaven. If only we had the telly and then I could have a proper chick flick fest!

Well I am off to sing out of tune and dance like a looney around the living room - the neighbours will love me! Then I have a gazillion phonecalls to make chasing up TVs, Xboxes, catching up with the recruitment agent, sorting out some stuff with the bank, and finally harrassing the car salesman about waiting times for new Astras!
