As is clear, I skipped an entry last week. The Church of Bush was so exciting that I had no time to type an entry...or at least that's my story.

We love the new house. All in all it is just what we wanted. We feel we fit in it much better than we did the other place. We are going to have a housewarming on the 20th. If you would like to attend just leave a comment and we will consider your application :-)

Right now I am playing the second of two songs by Big Audio Dynamite. I can't help but love them. Last week my entire playlist was dictated by Celeste. This week it is back to my music.

It is only 7:40am and since we just switched to DST it is actually only 6:40 in my brain, got about 6 hours of sleep, not too bad.

Oh, the only issue with the new house is that there is a bedsit downstairs and we are having a couple of problems with the tenant down there. We have wooden floors and no soundproofing of any sort between us and her and she is very noise sensitive, problem #1. That will supposedly be fixed this coming week by the landlords putting in soundproofing insulation (which will also probably make her place a bit warmer). The other issue is our little dog (of course). When she was moving in he ran into her apt. and she got quite upset. Then this weekend he snuck out of the apt. when I was taking out recycling and made his way down to her place again. That would have been not so bad had she not chosen to open her door while he was running around and he went right inside again. So, everything that happens that bothers her she seems to call the landlords about which is making my life and theirs a little unpleasant right now. Hopefully it will all work out, but our first week with the new downstairs neighbour has not been particularly fun.

We found out about a week or so ago that we are having a little boy. We think we have already decided on a name but I'm not ready to share that with the world yet. He looks pretty cute in his ultrasound pictures. Celeste is constantly trying to decide who he looks more like :-P

I just voted in my first New Zealand election. It is just local election so nothing too exciting about it, but interesting to vote in a non-American election for sure.

Speaking of which I should update my address with the US so I can vote in our upcoming elections.

It is great living in a new area. Mornington is not such an exciting area in itself but is quite close to Newtown which is quite young and diverse and hip. That is about the opposite of Karori which is close to nothing but Karori. Many more food and shopping choices.

Oh, check out the new Iron & Wine album, I LOVE IT.

I only get one cup of Milo today cuz there isn't any more milk in the radio station, very disappointing!

Right then...enough for today methinks.

Congratulations on the new place and the soon-boy! One the whole new everything, in fact...

We would love to attend your housewarming, but I don't think it's in the cards, even if we were invited, ah-hmmm.

But I must add... DST? Down South Time? What on earth is a bedsit and why does it sound like something I must have? When you say "one cup of Milo" is that a reference to a new Descendents album?

And you should update your address with us too... I'm sure the "US" knows already...
