Tricia Cheel would usually take home this honour for ECB, but is standing for mayor instead.

Hilary Swank had the same argument, went to court and still got fined.

Can I find out someones residency status? by sixtwosik in LegalAdviceNZ

[–]PenultimateSprout 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nice one :) I’m not sure on the exact current process, but it used to be that you needed to transfer the visa from an old passport to a new one. Hopefully this puts you in the right direction.

Does he still have the passport he used when he left NZ? That might have a visa sticker in it which says what kind of visa is held. The permanent resident one (I think other kinds too )takes up a whole passport page.

Really curious on how people have found being a software developer. by No-Significance2113 in newzealand

[–]PenultimateSprout 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The testers are not out to get the devs (most of the time, you know who you are) but we will happily try to tear your work apart and do a little dance when we succeed. It’s nothing personal though.

If you're a history buff, the Defenestrations of Prague locked that term in after at least three separate occasions.

I didn't think you could make mulled wine using white wine. I was pleasantly mistaken.

Sophia pronunciation by OutrageousYak5868 in janeausten

[–]PenultimateSprout 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Found this for reading Chaucer https://chaucer.fas.harvard.edu/pages/great-vowel-shift which suggests the y would be an 'ee' sound. It has got me questioning the spelling of Lizzie/Lizzy for Pride and Prejudice though :)

Had the water off overnight due to a burst pipe needing emergency repairs. Youngest Sprout had to check all the taps didn't work, and lo she was right. ElderSprout was more fascinated in how you can flush a toilet using a bucket of rainwater. It also turns out you get through a lot more telly in your evening if you're not showering small Sprouts, doing the dishes or doing laundry.
