Well, Iím off to NZ for two weeks tomorrow for work, but Iím actually getting more excited about snowboarding in Canada in 3 weeks time!
Here are my predictions for our Canada trip, Iím thinking of putting odds on them happening:
Ice-hockey game: Screaming "we want blood, we want blood", gaining 5Kg from breathing the pretzel, nacho and hot-dog saturated air, big plastic mugs of beer, Crazy yelling out the wrong thing and getting us all in a fight with supporters.
Drinking in Calgary: Groups of ladies around us Handsome lads with sexy foreign accents, shiiit loads of booze, standing on tables doing the can-can, crazy slipping off and crashing through the neighbouring table full of chicks who want nothing to do with us after that.
Snowmobiling: hooning around destroying the pristine silence of nature, running over a few bunny rabbits, racing through pine forest, crazy wrapping his snowmobile around a tree and coughing up £2,000 cos he didn't get insurance.
Ice fishing: the guys, big fu<k off drill, 6 packs of the finest Canadian beer we can find, talkin' shiit, killin' fish by smacking them over the head with a shovel, a Moose wandering past to throw our empties at, a Grizzly Bear coming across us who proceeds to thump his paws against the hut door while we freak out inside like in the movies, crazy falling into the ice hole and freezing his ass off
Snowboarding: Kicking up so much powder in gorgeous runs down the mountain that we pee our pants with excitement and joy, booze and food in the sun every lunch time, chilling out in hot tubs every night before hitting the town, Crazy spending 5 days building the biggest jump man kind has ever seen and hitting it far to fast causing him to crash and break both of his legs.
All sounds freaken awesome!!!
Crazy's Response after reading this is:I'd just like to go on record and say 'possible'...
I was cleaning out some old pics from my phone and I came across these two pics of Stef, Crazy and I at the Greyhounds last month.
Here's Crazy with his pick, a sure fire winner with the name "John" on his ticket:
And the inevitable result:
It was a really cool night actually, slumming it with white trash, eating dodgy looking chicken burgers and swilling a few snakebites while screaming "Come on ya little baastard" as the dogs run round. I'd go back for sure!
Welcome any TNT Magazine readers (and the usual crowd of course). There are lots more pub crawl pics and an un-cropped version of my published crowd pic on my Waitangi Day Circle Line Pub Crawl page.
My pic was on the contents page (top right):
And the second page of this article:
If you look closely down the left hand of the second page you can see my picture credit :-)
As if you needed another excuse to say "Richard, you scare me":
Awesome news, here is a pic of Craig and Kim's 1 HOUR old baby!
Craig briefly wrote:
Hey bro, this is our 1 hour old daughter. No name yet, guess craig junior is out.
Here are a few extra snaps that I took on the Circle Line Pub crawl. The weather was awesome which made for some great pics.

Well, I think I'm finally sober after the circle line pub crawl on Sat! Was an incredible day. Pics and another carefully crafted video will be up soon...
Register for Glastonbury here. Whatever you do though, don't email around your registration number like Crazy did, cos then you can log in to the web site using his post code, steal his pic:
and delete his registration so you'll have a better chance of getting a ticket.
MUAH HA HA HA
Nah, just kidding, Crazy (or am I? You'll have to wait a few mins before midnight on the 28th of Feb to find out...)
