Art imitates life

After the Christchurch earthquake, a lot of people in Auckland said things like, “We won’t have to deal with earthquakes up here, for us it’ll be lava/eruptions/a new volcano.”

This would invariably be followed by laughter, because lava is hilarious, don’t you know. Oh yes. HILARIOUS.

Couldn’t see the joke, myself. But I am fairly humourless when it comes to molten rock and poisonous ash clouds. Surprise!

Anyway. There is a mini-movie on TV tonight that is guaranteed to fuel my paranoia about Auckland volcanoes. It’s called ERUPTION.

Totally taping it. Obviously.

  1. There is a small box on its way to you and I promise it doesn’t contain any lava or volcanic rock.

    • OK. 🙂 Will let you know when it arrives. I have not organised yours yet, because I am a slackass! But I will endeavour to rectify this over the weekend.

      • Excellent. We should do a phone call too, one of these days, it’s been ages. Next weekish maybe?

      • It has been ages, because we’re jet setting women of the world this year, hahaha. Next weekend would be good because it’s a long weekend here. The following weekend would not be good, because I’m going to Canada. As you do.

      • I am curious to hear more about your travels. The stuff you don’t put in LJ posts, haha.

      • We are. Our jettsetting ways are the stuff of legends or something. So… 23rd or 24th? Either’s good for me. And I have *much* to tell. SO much.

      • I am sure you do. Lucky we’re no strangers to 4-hour phone convos, haha.
        I usually speak to the parent on Sunday evenings, so let’s say the 23rd. Will 6pm your time be too early?

      • That sounds good to me. I’ll grab a phone card too, so I’m not at the mercy of Telstra’s limits or their obnoxious 20 minute beepings.

      • Ah yes, the beepings, love those. I’ll ring you first, so the phone card’ll get used only if we need it.

      • Awesome. I expect it might – like I said, much to tell.

      • Yeah, I think it’s pretty much a given. Heh.

      • I am anticipating you laughing at a great deal of it, actually. XD
