My colleague, friend and fellow Kiwi expatriate Scott Gray was involved in a car accident yesterday and was quite badly hurt, so I'm not feeling too clever this morning. I believe he's going home today after a night in hospital, with some broken bones and "a black eye the size of a rugby ball". I'm relieved it wasn't worse -- as, I'm sure, is he. Merry Christmas, eh? Anyway, this one's for him.
