Throw in a bit of sleep deprivation, this entire week has been a write off.

hell ill be happy if one of them wanted me to bring some junk food and some video games lol, it doesnt have to be out and about like bars and pubs, but after my break up with my X i did lose some friends so i am basicly starting from scratch when it comes to sociliseing but fortenatly i have a few friends that i kept away from the group just in case this happened i just wish i had given them more attention over the years[/quote]

Oh I know that one well. Stik was probably one of the few friends I still have after my last break up, most of the people I knew were through my ex. Now I virtually only socialise at family things, at the odd music gig or when I am at a support group. But I've been house bound pretty much since November looking after an injured family member so most "people" I see are other Guardians in Destiny 2 (Oddly one of which turned out to be an Ex-TFNZ member) and people in Battlefront 2.[/quote]

im always gonna be your mate champ.

just dont touch my cheese.

A Pacific/Island group singing (maybe Hymns as I heard Hallelujah a few times) at 4am till at least 5:30am up on Mangere Mountain, waking me up on these hot & humid nights. Happened twice so far.

Really not cool.

iPhone sent to Apple for screen repair yesterday, tracking checked this morning to see that the package has been declined for sending to Australia by TNT and is now winging its way back to me.
Instructions were followed using the provided packaging etc by Apple, and after my last experience 14 months ago when the palmy tnt agent (nz couriers) “lost the package” after I delivered it to their depot, needless to say I’m more than a bit miffed with things.....
a phone call to the couriers sheds no light so I’m in the dark till the package gets back to I guess.... my money is on the package has been opened and the “restored to factory settings” iph8ne has disappeared (D)
no sig as photobucket nerfed it all

Currently collecting G1 from a trust worthy web site.
Looking at eBay I'm some what hesitant when it comes to officiall g1.
Specially for their ko traders.
Prices are just too good to be true.

Endless people bashing people for RIBFIR. Plus the Hasbro vs third party aggro. I seem to notice that there is more coming from the Hasbro lovers than it used to. I always thought it was the other way around.

I don’t care who likes what but don’t try to change my opinion and be self entitled jerks to everyone.

Thankfully it’s no one here

The fact that Transformers communities across the internet are already showing pictures of Power of the Primes wave 2 and beaming about their complete dinobot combiner etc. when we in New Zealand are still over a damn month from getting anything from Power of the Primes. Whoever at Hasbro thought making us wait until the end of March for a toyline that started coming out elsewhere in December needs to have a long hard think about their business practices. I'm sure there are a number of sales that have been lost (even if it's a small number) from people jumping the gun too import because the wait for local distribution is too much.

Because they go way too hard on the movie stock. It is almost like the shelves are fully stocked for a new line but it’s just the same stock that has been collecting dust.

Trademe members that buy stuff and then don’t pay or send a message within a few days. Frustrating being left in limbo (especially since lately there seems to be more Trademe members that don’t complete trades?)
