Otorohanga is a funny word. It means "small town New Zealand where vampires can find work".

No it doesn't. I made that up. I have no idea what it means but it is, non-coincidentally, a small town in New Zealand where I'm moving to tomorrow for a new job. Nat will be there. And work is there. And, presumably, adventure will also find me there.

For now, though, I'm wasting precious time with Little M. Time that could be far better spent eating sushi and wandering Cuba Street dishing on everything from the hotness of Craig Parker in Mercy Peak to how much of a beautiful thing soul-friendship is. On that note, I leave you. Because for Lent I'm determined to give all of myself to my experiences here and to the people who make up the parts of my heart that I only discovered since arriving. To those people (Little M) I say "thank you". This means something because of you. To the people back home who are keeping the parts of my heart I left there safe and warm, I say "I love you".
