“not for a first date”

About five courses in to our ten course meal at The French Cafe, the boyfriend stops and says ‘This is not somewhere you go on a first date.’ I may have replied something along the lines of, um..yeah, no shit babe. Tis true, however. It’s pretty flash and all was thoroughly enjoyed, especially the feijoa sorbet. Also, three desserts. THREE DESSERTS. I need say no more.

In other ‘things people bought me’ news, my sisters ordered me in a signed print of ‘Chronic Bitchface‘ which I’m sure some of you have seen me go on about on here before, love it! I was also at the Tri Nations All Black squad announcement, pretty stoked to see Ali Williams announced as part of the team after being unavailable due to injury for 2 and a half years. He says not knowing whether he was ever going to put on an All Blacks jersey again was a pretty deep and dark period of his life and it’s always inspiring to see people overcome such obstacles. I’ve always held a soft spot for him because a) he’s super tall and b) because of this Shot Then post. Remember Shot Then? Good Times.
