2. That's why I post them, my friend!

They help me keep sane as well - and the humor sure helps!

5. I know - I have the same reaction and that's why I post them

It's reassuring to see that others are paying attention and that we're not alone!

3. NZ is now on my bucket list

The clip from this show was amazing, hilarious, and just a little bit cringe-worthy (when he tried to sing the national anthem)*. Nice job blending in there, Stephen!

6. He did a really good job with this and plans to show parts of his trip all week

The only part that made me cringe was the snake in the can - I knew what was coming and was grateful that the PM didn't agree to have some "peanut brittle" while she was driving!

And it looks like a wonderful place to visit - my parents have been there and liked it a lot, my mother even went twice! Though I'm not a big fan of flying so I'm not sure I could take it - it takes almost a whole day in the air to get there!
