Were you aware?

The gas stations (they call gas petrol, though) over here are full-service.

I don't get that nasty painful shock when I get out of the car down here, unlike back in the States.

They love Queen here. Also, the Foo Fighters. And the Red Hot Chili Peppers. But man do they love Queen.

The nutrition labels on the food and drink here don't list things in calories. They list them in 'kiloJoules'. Huh?! Man, why didn't I keep my physics textbook! Paging Bill Nye the Science Guy....

At the Halswell Lodge in Wellington, they had pay-per-view movie capability in the room. There were four channels set aside for this, but on each channel it was the same movie being offered: Conan the Barbarian. How freakin' cool is that!!! (nerd alert)

"Please don't gong the gong": sign posted over, well, a GONG in Larnach Castle. Talk about asking for it ...

Seen and heard outside a yakitori and sake bar in downtown Wellington: "Come on girls! It's only one shot! One shot, that's all we ask!" Hahahaha, famous last words...
