New ad bar thingy: look up!

I like: nice change from google advertising hinged on random keywords.

Just one thing. I was seriously considering attending the bNet awards this year on September 10 in Auckland, sounds like a good party - but I heard yesterday that the tickets are like $80!! There I was thinking I would bludge off one of the nominated bands, and my informant tells me that even the nominees only get two tickets to share between them! What's up with that? Can anyone explain the reasoning?

Okay, on reflection I'm not so overjoyed with the new 'nav-bar' from blogger - my easily-distracted mind now has another mindless idling mode to slip into.

Is today not the coldest day EVER??

// Is today not the coldest day EVER??

That is one delightfully confusing sentence. I think the correct answer is Yes, but I am not at all sure of it.

Im guessing you are using the free service here and thats why they make you have ads? I started paying for my stuff because I hated the way it interfered with how my site looked - not that my site looks great or anything, but ads made it look even worse.

Thought it was quite warm myself, but then there is an entire world between here and there. It's raining lots tho....
Nav bar looks better than the ad bar on mine - it keeps coming up with Holistic therapies and Shamanistic retreats in Anglesey. What's that all about, eh?

Apparently it's 7 degrees, but I think it's actually a LOT colder. I woke up this morning about 5:30, thought it was an earthquake - it's normal for the house to rock in the wind but it was seriously shaking in its foundation!! Check this out (hopefully the link will stay put for a while). I have to admit I caught the bus about two blocks this morning to avoid the horizontal rain...

I think the 'two-tickets-per-band-thing' is purely a space-saver. The Bruce Mason isn't that big, and they have to have enough room to fit in all the schmoozers and industry big-wigs as well.

Having said that, I have managed to blag my way in for free the last two years, so it is possible. ;)

Its a storm, and I have a webcam, therefore, I now have a stormcam. Pity I can't get it to show anything exciting. I think i've changed my mind, it IS a bad storm afterall.
