And the other day we asked our fan base to decide how we could giveaway our My Little Pony toys that we’d been given to use as giveaways. Sonya came up with this great idea of giving them to the Auckland City Mission. She got an onion soup for her troubles.
So. We’re giving the City Mission a whole box of t-shirts, as well as the My Little Pony toys. Which makes us feel good. AND…
It got us thinking. We should do more for the City Mission. They’re good people and they help kids who don’t get awesome toys for Christmas. So. Over the next week we want you guys to come in and give us your old toys. Here’s how it’ll go down.
- Dig up your old toys that are still in that old box.
- Think about how stoked the little kids that get them will be.
- Have one last little emotional playtime with them.
- Come in to the Mr Vintage shop (directions here)
- Give us your toys (not too old just vintage cool).
- Chose whatever t-shirt you want.
- It’s yours for only $20.
- Go home and feel good about yourself.
- Put your new t-shirt on and look good while you’re feeling good.

The All Whites are my heroes.
But yeah, back to the Football. What an occasion, from what I’ve heard, the TV coverage did the crowd little justice – and I was blown away by what I saw on the TV coverage – I think it’ll be one of the deepest regrets of my life that I didn’t go down to Wellington for that one. Thanks Hayden for having your boxing on the same night as the All Whites crucial World Cup Qualifying fixture, you’re a real champ like that.

Boxing has been the ideal outlet for Hayden. It’s crazy. You meet this little man and you couldn’t meet a nicer dude. He’s relatively polite, well-mannered, friendly, and a bit of a laugh. Give him like 12 beers and he turns in to some kind of aggressive fighting machine. Ask anyone in town.
Oh yeah. we have a little wager on this one. If he loses his fight, Rob will draw a picture of a diddle that Hayden has to kiss. It's all on the line here.

Maurice Morrison (Deputy Minister of Tourism to Tourism Paeroa), in all his wisdom, has decided to make Paeroa NZ’s next tourism hot spot. He has blindly selected semi-talented local Colin Brown, to pilot The Tourism Paeroa Roadshow van around New Zealand.

The Father. Joe our designer is an avid fan of his specs and swagger.
Thinking about what’s been going on in NZ lately, it’s pretty slim pickings really – Brian Tamaki aside – we seem to just be coasting along nicely. I’ll refrain from saying too much about the Bishop/The Father/Jesus or whatever he goes by these days. He’s good for a laugh though, and I’m stoked he’s around to entertain me. Lately when it’s been really cold and I feel like I’m at the end of myself I just look at my ‘covenant ring’ that the Bishop gave me and then I smile again for ages and feel all warm and sunny in my belly. He is such a genuine guy, and I really appreciate that he told me I was allowed to copy his hairstyle. I am working on it at the moment, but I need a bit more length and I’m not sure how he gets that greasy feel to his hair but he was nice enough to recommend this product called ‘Gel for real Men’ that you can obtain from the $2 shop which is such a bargain for what it is.
