Here I am - I'm here!!

I've been out of the sphere for the last wee while, but I'm back now. Here's some of the stuff I've been up to...

Watching Derren Brown
This guy is amazing! I've always been interested in hypnotism, but this guy manages to mix hypnotism, neuro-linguistic programming, misdirection, magic, and pure showmanship to do some really cool things. My favourite clip is where he NLP's a young guy to be drunk, just from imagining it, then linking the feeling to a word that he flashes in front of him. I want that - a good buzz with no hangover the next day. Yeah!

Losing weight
I have now lost a total of 4kg and have maintained it for over 2 weeks. Wierd! I'm listening to a Paul McKenna NLP recording every night, which is supposedly helping my willpower to resist eating so much. Guess it's working, huh?

Reports
Two hundred and fifty (times five or six!) Senior reports all proofread,commented and signed. Whew! Deaning is not fun this time of year. And Junior reports are still to come in Term 3.

Netball
FINALLY we have finished the season from Hell! Next season will be better,I hope. It's a good thing I still have ring-in games at Petone. It's keeping me sane. And today I'm in the staff team playing the Prem 1 girls at lunch. Wish me luck!

I appear to be spamming your comment box. However, it is for good reason. This comment is to inform you that I have officially finished work at IMC, and I will be driving home tomorrow, unpacking, doing laundry, re-packing, throwing a going-away party, getting last minute things done, then heading to the airport at 3:30am on Wednesday (or 9:30pm on Wednesday, your time). I'm leaving in like 3 1/2 days!!!!!! AAAAHHH!!!!

Hey Fiona, I arrive at 8am, and I don't know the flight number but I could find it for you and give you a call later tonight (i.e. tomorrow evening, in New Zealand time! haha, weird). Besides, I'd rather not leave that info on the Internet for all to see! And I'd planned on giving you a call sometime soon anyway. Ooooh, we are SO close!!! I leave in 2 1/2 days and counting!
