I had no idea where New Zealand was

Turns out it's actually fairly far away from San Francisco. But the flight wasn't too bad and the jet lag, while in effect, hasn't crippled me. It's actually been a full first day in Auckland and I've still got a rugby game left to go see.

I moblogged a bunch of stuff already over at mobiletoe. However, now that Blogger Mobile is launched (woot!) I'm probably going to be changing the home for my mobile posts.

As noted over yonder - I was, apparently, the sketchiest dude New Zealand Customs had ever laid eyes on. None of my answers impressed them. Here's a tip - if Customs asks you why you're in NZ and have such poorly defined plans and don't even know anyone in the country ... don't answer with "I'm here on Hobbit Safari, yo."

They may laugh ... but then they'll fondle your underwear.

i'm disheartened that the validictorian doesn't know where new zealand is...reminds me of "jay walking".

although, i am envious of your trip and all the things you will see and do while you are there.

I'm definitely agreeing with the too short. I'm not seeing the South Island at all on this trip.

I've already got a list of things I want to do on the return visit.
