Gaming and things

So a few years back I played Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO) with my ex boyfriend, sadly when we broke up he took the accounts with him. Recently I decided to start playing LOTRO again... read on to hear about my adventures in Middle Earth.

The Apartment Year 3

Wow. Oh how time flies!
Dan and I have been living in our rented apartment for over 2 years now, we just signed on for another year - so we're good until January 2016.

During that time the apartment has housed three (or very, very briefly four) of us at any point in time.
Our first flatmate was with us in the first year, and when her and her girlfriend got engaged they decided to move in together. Since then we met Tom from Invercargill, he's a real character!
The three of us get on quite well and we're lucky he said he was keen to sign on for this year too, so we don't have to do the flatmate find any time too soon!

Special shout out to Tom as it's his birthday today.

Life is worth the journey

Skepticism and Podcasts.

I've joined a group of local Skeptics for their awesome monthly podcast.
