    Hmm...got me thinking now...Does this make an octopus a grappler?

    And what about sharks?

    Sharks are the people who have a CCW Permit :XXbazooka

    Actually, scratch the "man up". The two girls I was there with were both swimming too, and they were Kiwis, so you've no excuse.

    P.S. If your reply contains lame excuses about "microclimates" I shall snigger at your expense.
    i guess you missed the bit where its been freezing fucking cold for the last month in NZ, november was warmer than it is now. and waiheke island is nice all the time anyway. ever taken the plunge into the cook strait in winter? I have so shut the **** up. THAT **** is cold.

    and also you were that close to auckland and didnt even mention? you could have come and played slaphands with me. that makes me a sad sad panda

    November's late spring in New Zealand. It's nice. I came home with a tan.

    I've been out of NZ for over a month, so I'll take your word for it and be gleeful at having missed the chilly spell. I've never been to NZ in winter, and I've yet to attempt the Cook Strait.

    I'd been off judo and BJJ for 2-3 months by then having fucked up my knee rolling. By the time I came to NZ I could run on it for short distances, but it still wasn't in any state to spar. I wasn't really thinking along lines of an impromptu throwdown at that point.

    Got some of a paragliding course in Queenstown done, and also went black water rafting and sea kayaking and sailing round the Bay of Islands in the crow's nest of a schooner, so it was a pretty good holiday regardless.

    And now the knee's better and I'm back training, which makes the Scottish winter just about endurable.

    Well, we had a specific rule that no one was allowed in the water after consuming alcohol. If you're talking about it as a hangover cure, maybe you should remember that the hangover generally comes when you're not that drunk any more.

    Well we were all pretty hammered, and none of us went in the water. Ended up playing strip poker with some chick we met who heard us partying. Then when we woke up incredibly hungover the next morning, we went and swam in the sea for an hour or so. Felt absolutely fantastic after that. Every time i'm hungover now i really wish I was near the sea.
