New home linky

It’s Friday linky time, first one at the new hosting site. Groovy. I’m gonna go into the depths of the linky file, pull out some stuff that’s been sitting there for aaaages without ever being grabbed up into a linky. Nothing fresh! Everything old! Come and get it!

The Day Tripper photos were taken by a new arrival in Wellington, of random folk he met on buses. They got a little bit of media coverage, but not much, because the Flickr set only shows a few hundred views. Take a look – nice slice-of-life photography. And if you’re a Wellingtonian, you might see someone you know – I did.

    Erm, I’ve never seen Upham’s double VC efforts related quite like THAT before 🙂 Laughing just thinking about ‘Upham’s B.J. Blaskowicz impersonation’.

    Yay…I’m glad you shared the “acts of kindness” article because it made me happy. I love the idea that if Eleni is nice to Lucas, then Lucas is nice to Lysander, Bemy, Sebastian, Nicholas etc, then kindness will spread like a virus through their social network… and I particularly loved that they used a pretty coloured diagram to map the interactions…

    My optometrist uses mirrors to reflect the eyechart, so unless she has an INSANELY complex set up, I’m safe, right?

    Oh, and I used to have areal thing for girls’ school stories… come to think of it, they were pretty dodgy too… horrific things things tended to happent to the families of girls at boarding school, and there was at least one sociopath in every form!
