    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Kitkatz, Feb 1, 2011.

    Hi everybody...

    I live in Auckland, New Zealand and really would love to network with more of you kiwi writers- are there many on this forum?

    Unfortunately, he's write... I mean right.

    I'm not sure if there are any other NZ members on here, but there are a good few of us Australians now.

    HAHA, it's all good. Never known a bad Kiwi. Well, except for Russell Crowe. That man is pure wank. Other than that, all good people.

    Honorary Kiwi here.

    Lived there through most of my teenage years, and into my mid-20s.

    I'm a kiwi, too! Initially from Christchurch (go the South Island, hoorah), I'm studying in Wellington now. Nice to see a couple more of you out there! Even if you are from Auckland ;)

    I'm not from NZ, but I like to speak to strangers with a silly accent I picked up from watching too much Flight of the Conchords. I say silly because while I can't copy Bret or Jemaine, I can do a perfect Murray, and his accent is just plain silly.

    I went to NZ a while ago as part of a school trip. It was awesome, went to smelly Rotorua, bought a ton of jade, saw a kiwi at a zoo, even saw the All Blacks in Auckland and got their autographs. This was right before LOtR came out.

    Long live Figwit!
