Janacek's Jenufa – NZ Opera are performing it in October (and I'll be playing the pivotal contrabassoon part… ok, not that pivotal, but if you get a seat in the dress circle you can see me and I promise to look pretty). It's a tragic tale filled with sex, lies, love, forgiveness and a rather intense dose of infanticide.
Wellington band 'Holiday with Friends' – super cute and usually drunk. Word on the street is that they have an EP on the way. Be excited.
Capitol's broccoli and feta bruschetta - unforgettable.
Mamma Mia - Meryl Streep does ABBA. It's special.
Ladyhawke - let's all jump on the pop-rock les-fes bandwagon!
Snapper cards - cheap & uncomplicated public transport in Wellington, who knew?
Upper Hutt Savemart - It doesn't even smell.
CoastFM - I was told by one of their marketing people that I am in the 1% of people under the age of 45 that listen to coast - really, get your coast freak on people!
Judith Tizard – At the launch of NZ Music Month (an excuse to play BAD NZ music) after failing to get any answers right in an NZ music quiz she was quoted as saying "I just write the cheques, darling". That's funny.
