  1. Just heard about this, and came to check on you and your family…so glad all is well. Will they need any kind of relief funds there? Please let us know!

  2. Share disaster in my household, I tell you.

    Firstly I lost two bottles of beer in my beer-fridge in the initial quake and then to add further distress in the aftermath I couldn’t access my TAB phone-betting account. And all the bloody useless local-council were interested in was running around trying to repair the friggin’ power and water when I had bets to put on at the Aussie gallops. I mean to say they could prioritise things in a time of disaster, eh?

    If that wasn’t bad enough to top things-off my local pub closes its doors at 7 PM.

    That’s right folks – I waltz in at 5 o’clock to find its closing its doors for the night at 7PM on a Saturday.

    Gotta go, the crew from Campbell Live are at the door. I’ve got the kids dressed in bloodied rags and given TV3 the exclusive on the beer bottles.

    Praise-be to Poseidon (The God of Earthquakes)no one was killed.

    See ya.

    Paul.

  3. 10 mins after the quake, my pet alligator escaped into the rubble.

    I'm distraught!

    If anyone finds him, please let me know. He's 9 feet long with a pink collar and will answer to the name "Chomper".

    Thanks so much.
