New blog strategy: Go to lunch. Stay there.

Having yesterday afternoon off worked so well, we thought we'd take today off as well. So we did. It's bloody brilliant this publishing...gig. Stayed offline all day. When we got back to our fax machine this evening, we were delighted to see that the blog had been filled with much happy, good natured and extremely chirpy banter between lovely nzcreatives. This a healthy thing. Like saunas and birch-whipping where I come from. It improves the circulation.

As for the suit issue, well... Sad.

Some of the older contributers may recall nzcreativecircle did set up a nzsuitcircle.blogspot.com in the early days of this blog thing but none came.

So it went. Waste of good fax paper.

Tomorrow we will go out on the harbour on a big boat and stay there until well after work.

What is this thing about the fax all the time? Why do you keep mentioning the 'fax not working', 'waste of fax paper', etc?

Is this a humorous, post-modern reference to the days of marker scamps, or am I missing the fact that you actually do use a fax?

If not, let it go, ay?

Any of what? Why Frenchie's invented a swedish nympho that works in his pre-computing-revolution office, manning the fax? As well as a host of other characters - like the IT guy that comes in occasionally. What does he do, fix paper jams?

No I don't get it either, but I think it's time for a new scenario. Maybe Heidi gets eaten by a gigantic kitten, and two gay fashion critics step up, and in between barbed witticisms, they display an immaculate grasp of the intricacies of blogging.

Dear first poster. Yeah it's post-ironic. And if you don't like it....

Most people in NZ agencies in our expertience don't really "get" technology - or use it - things like blogs ot anything Web 2.0 really. Hence the fax.

We're actually going to get a telex next. And generation one mobiles that weigh more than a concrete block. And we're not afraid to use them.

Now fuck off and do some work.

Sorry about Crusher's typos - he isn't very skilled on the keyboard.

BTW I am not Swedish. I am European. I have an EU passport. Which means I can go back and work in many countries whenever I want to. Probably during the Northern summer. Thank you for your interest.

I have Euros. Not Kiwis.

And um,

Either there's something wrong with this goddamn keyboard or the spellschecl's turned off.

Dang.

Okay, I get the point; you find the whole fax-Heidi thing very amusing, and will continue to do so infinitum; and I should amuse myself similarly with whatever incarnation rings my personal bell, and desist offering a tedious critique upon yours.

That's hairy muff.

Actually, you'll find we zig and we zag and we change direction all the time in these shift Auckland breezes and the blog now is quite different to how it was in August 2005.

Use a name, big boy. Others do...

Hairy Muff? Not very 2006, from what we can gather.

Cheers,

Sorry, we just had a sane person read Mr Kant's post and he's actually not a cunt.
