PROCRASTINATOR'S CREED:
 

You may wish to delay reading this until you have more free time.

1.  I believe that if anything is worth doing, it would have been done already.

2.  I shall never move quickly, except to avoid more work or find excuses.

3.  I will never rush into a job without a lifetime of consideration.

4.  I shall meet all of my deadlines directly in proportion to the amount of
     bodily injury I could expect to receive from missing them.

5.  I firmly believe that tomorrow holds the possibility for new technologies,
     astounding discoveries, and a reprieve from my obligations.

6.  I truly believe that all deadlines are unreasonable regardless of the
     amount of time given.

7.  If at first I don't succeed, there is always next year.

8.  I shall always decide not to decide, unless of course I decide to change my
     mind.

9.  I shall always begin, start, initiate, take the first step, and/or write the first
     word, when I get around to it.

10.  I will never put off till tomorrow, what I can forget about forever.

 Reading Science Fiction/Fantasy
I read other genre too - history, mystery, romance but Sci-Fi is my favourite method of escaping somewhere unreal enough to feel unchallenged while stimulated.
Here are the authors I currently enjoy most. If you can suggest others...email me!
Anne McCaffrey Pern series and others
Melanie Rawn Sun Runners series and Exiles series
Julian May  The Saga of the Exiles and others
L.E. Modesitt Jr. The Saga of the Recluse and Spellsong Cycle
Raymond Feist The Riftwar Saga and others
Robert Heinlein All those old ones :-)
Frank Herbert The Dune series


Travel
New Zealand is a great place to travel around, we have marvellous weather and glorious sights of the real sort. Like many other Kiwis, though, I feel the urge to prove that the rest of the world exists. I can categorically state that Australia, Fiji and Bali are not figments of the television programmers' imaginations.
Here are a few sites about Godzone (NZ)
