» Heroes and villains of 2011

My heroes?
The people of Christchurch. I never thought I'd be nominating my own countrymen as heroes, but what very typical kiwis in Chch have endured since February has let me amazed. I was moved to tears watching people risking their lives to get victims out of rubble. And the students of Canterbury University, previously considered a shower of boofheads by many, volunteered in their hundreds to do clean-up, not once but after every aftershock. I wouldn't be surprised if half the continuing tremors were caused by the citizens' gigantic balls bashing together. Thank you Christchurch.

My Yank neighbour ...
is busy working in his vegetable garden.
I suspect it's some kind of American plot.

Prolly said already, but ...
I had a neighbour once who said "I got no problem with gays, but I wish they didn't try to ram it down our throats."

"They are NEGROES!"
The first time my mum saw black people was when she was a little girl during the war. She'd just come out from watching a Tarzan movie, including an epic gorilla-v-African tree battle scene, and chanced upon the local US army camp where black troops had just arrived. They were sitting round behind a barbed wire fence and in her slightly addled 8 year old head she had the notion that the yanks were suddenly recruiting apes or something. When one of them offered her some gum, she totally lost it and ran home.
Upon arriving, she gasped to her mum "The yanks got niggers down the base!" Her mother gave her a huge slap across the face and said "You are never to call them that vile word again - they are NEGROES!"
Mum never forgot that, and to this day is perfectly polite to black people.
Or as she still calls them, Negroes.
