@FlyAirNZ what an awful awful way to finish my #airnz flying experience. Your NZ29 12 May flight service manager just decided to put revenue over family. It’s the most unkiwi thing that has happened to me in the 7 years I’ve flown with you.

Coffee snobs look away. But there’s nothing quite like a Dunkin experience to relive your childhood.

A huge thank you to @flyairnz Andrea and Stuart for their help and for rebooking me. #AirNZ is one of the things I’ll miss most when we’re away from home for the next three years.

I wonder if there are any empirical papers estimating the productivity/welfare loss to society from people deciding to wait the extra ten seconds for their Secure ID / 2FA tokens to refresh.

@nytimes comes to the rescue with pop-anthropology reading recommendations. The Stuart Kirsch book is based on his PNG experiences and will be my first pick. But Romanian secret police files also sounds fab!

Just the kind of story I want to read during a bout of insomnia. Thanks @voxdotcom!

Strictly personal view but I think Paul Eagle was onto something here. #vomitron

I can confirm that the @metservice “feels like” measure is very, *very* accurate. #Brrrrr

Hey @nztreasury, love the new website! But still a few teething problems. Many links lead to a 403 error on this page:

Task for the weekend: “de-cluttering”. Seems innocuous enough, but it can eventually lead you to take a “How big a hoarder am I?” test, and the answer might not make your day.

Visit from movers = trifecta moodkill: a) reality of move sets in -> panic!; b) you find out a 20ft container is too small (you thought you only had 2 duffel bags) -> mid-life crisis; c) they’re coming back in 2 weeks -> only 2 weeks to get over panic and mid-life crisis

Picnics are so last season. All the teddy bears are at the #NorfolkIsland Country Music Festival. Nothing like teddies gadding about to bluegrass.

It’s like the whole town took a leadership course where they were told to just do it and ask for forgiveness later. Nice!

Ethics in the era of Yelp: how do you leave a good review for a car rental company that’s awfully - exceptionally - nice, but where the brakes failed on a scary downhill?

Sunday trading is a real holiday killer. It should go. Especially in small islands like Waiheke!

Flicking through the March Kia Ora magazine, I feel for regional New Zealand - might be worth doing a “leave no one behind” session with @flyairnz

The Koru lounge in Wellington is now at the cutting edge of @flyairnz lounges. After five years, the hand cream and hand wash have been finally separated from being next to each other. #hallelujah

I’m starting a (micro-)blog. Mostly sticky notes, with the occasional long-form rant.

There’s a 6 minute sweet spot on every @emirates flight when the onair wifi loads a line of text in under 15 min. It’s when 97% of passengers are asleep, 2% on the loo, and 1% have run out of data.
