It was another spectacularly rainy Auckland day, and Green left her rain coat in the car. Max had an umbrella, but seemed unwilling to share it. Too bad, I had a kite and I was unwilling to share that either. Very cute. The photo of you at the coordinates is great--having you in the front of the cliffs give them scale, and red boots on a dreary day is always a fun contrast. -Juventas 19:38, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, I was chuffed I had the sense to bring the gumboots, forgetting the jacket, not so smart... Greenslime 22:40, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
I had a pair of red gumboots when I was really ickle, in Tokoroa. Mum still has them, and uses them as pen holders on her desk.  :-) — Benjw  [talk] 12:14, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
Cute! Tokoroa? Sounds like you have NZ roots? Hows uni going for you at the mo? You doing lectures? I assume you are the lecturer, or just really like learning? Greenslime 18:28, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
Yep, I'm from Tokoroa, although I've lived in the UK most of my life. I always meant to go back at some point, but I never did. You pick up ties and commitments after a while, and... oh well. Uni would be good right now, thanks, if it weren't for exams (one done, one tomorrow and two next week). You assume too much of me -- I'm a lowly final-year undergrad (maths), having left halfway through my first attempt at a degree, many years ago. But I do really like learning anyway. Don't you?  :-) — Benjw  [talk] 19:03, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
I find it so hard to believe that people can do maths, let alone a whole degree in it! It was a decisive factor in me choosing to do chemistry, a science with no maths (and no big words like Bio). Good on you though, whats next after the maths? A post grad degree? Im a bit of a perpetual student myself, been institutionalised for a good 7.5 years now :-) so yes, learning works for me too! All the best for your exams! Greenslime 21:45, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
