I went to a concert on Valentine's Day with a friend I used to work with, Interpol. We had such a great time, the band was awesome. You can watch music videos on their website (link is in name above). I hadn't realized how elf-like the lead singer is, hah! This friend also told me about the elf-worship of FIGWIT, which stands for "Frodo is great...Who is that?!" because of a scene from Lord of the Rings in which Brett McKenzie (of Flight of the Conchords) plays a non-speaking elf role. I find it highly amusing that he has this fan base that was so profound that a documentary film was made about it. Flight of the Conchords, by the way, is so funny!!! They just won a Grammy- way to go guys! The other half of Flight of the Conchords, Jermaine, is in the movie Eagle vs. Shark. Why haven't you seen this yet? It is funny and sweet and made by a Kiwi.
Darin and I had dinner out at the Bluestone Room. They have a Saturday $10 dinner deal, and it's a very atmospheric place. Good service, beer, and food too. It's in a restored historic (1850's) building in downtown Auckland. Here's a picture of the bar. I'll definitely go back there.
