I remember when Martin used to drive a Nissan Prairie to work. Pete used to give him shit about it and tried endlessly to get him into a completely impractical Porsche.

Saying that though, I was driving down Te Rakau Drive the other day (just finished showing an out-of-towner the urban decay that is Flat Bush and Dannemora), and I spied a pimped out Prairie. Perhaps Martin was foolish in selling the car. I'm sure in the Clems carpark there aren't too many pimped out Prairie's.

Anyhow, well done Martin.

Change of subject:

The new Toyota NZ TVCs - Everyday parenting??????
What's that all about?
There's a limit to 'brand stretch' and I reckon they've well and truly snapped their undie elastic with this campaign.
Who do Toyota think they are to be running ads giving parenting tips to 'Everyday Kiwis'?
Maybe I'm out of touch and missing something.

Please discuss

Also Mr / Ms / Miss Moderator. How do we start a new post in this blog?

I can only speak for myself but I welcome Toyota's input to helping me bring up the kids...heck...life is hard enough but to have a global giant taking the time to speak to me like that, well gosh, I go all weepy...and if I could only find out where the kids have gone I'm sure they'd say the same thing.
