This is the NZI Sevens weekend here in Sunny Wellington.

Jacqui and I didn't manage to get tickets - by the time I'd remembered to log on to the website, they were all long sold out.  Apparently they were all gone within 3 minutes, so I don't feel so bad.

It would have been great to have gone to the actual tournament, but since that wasn't possible, we went into the city to bask in the ambiance.

And we're glad we did!  The whole city was out, and I don't think much work was done!

The whole point of the Seven's weekend is, surprisingly, completely unrelated to rugby. Rather, it's about being seen in your outfit.  And every year, the outfits get a bit crazier.

This year the costumes included, but where not limited to:

Oompa-LoompasAvatarsFairiesSWAT team membersCavemen (and cave women)Synchronised swimmersBaywatchersBlues BrothersMexicans
Also, everyone was either drunk or crazy.  Many were, in fact, both.
Jacqui got hugged by random strangers more times…
