Today I used Fastpost for the first time! It was exciting. Did you know you only have to pay 50c more per letter (if you are sending letters to where I am sending letters, which is Wellington) and then it travels at the speed of LIGHT??? This is exciting because NZ Post is all about the 'snail' part of 'snail mail' and sometimes about the 'losing your letter completely' part as well. In conclusion: Fastpost is one of those things it's worth spending more money on. Like wine and good quality writing implements, unless you're like me and constantly nick pens from work.
Not worth spending more on: high priced domestic flights. There's about a $40 difference (I made that number up, but it's probably about right) to fly to Wellington with Air NZ rather than with a low-cost airline like Jetstar or Pacific Blue. As far as I can tell everything is exactly the same - plane goes up, plane comes down - except when you fly Air NZ you get a free cup of tea and a biscuit. Did I say free? I meant a $40 cup of tea and a biscuit. Maybe the biscuit increases your charisma, or something?* Alcohol increases my charisma. But not my wisdom. I have been playing too many computer games.
You know what would be commercially successful? A Star Wars-themed hair salon, but what I was actually going to say was Twilight audio books read by David Attenborough. "Edward steps out of the undergrowth, alabaster skin sparkling. What a magnificent specimen we see here."
*Charisma Biscuit would be a good name for a band, or a military operation.
