Is the aye a Welly thing or a NZ thing? Either way, I just think it's so cute! One of those language quirks that I get a kick out of.

Oh to be able to, just by happenstance, see someone at a gig like that. Luckies. ;)

That's so cool you were both there! Now you'll have to meet up for the next one!

What kind of turn out do they usually get for these concerts?

Aye's a whole of NZ thing. It's fantastic, you can whack it onto any sentence and it totally makes sense, aye. Mate. Aye. Yeah mate. Aye. :lol: I'm serious, I have entire conversations with my mates going 'Yeah, I know aye!'. Gotta love it. Aye. OK I'm gonna stop now, aye. This is so much fun. Aye. Really, I'm going now aye.

That made me snort with laughter.

The Aye thing, it's sort of added onto the end of a statement which makes it into a question. Or it reaffirms your statement. It's a wierd Kiwi colloquialism.

They were awesome, aye
It was pretty crap, aye
That guys pretty hot, aye

The Ukes get usually a pretty good turn out. Because there is so little room there people share tables with strangers. Me and my friend shared our table with two tourists and two old ladies. Because I turned up relatively early I didn't have to wait long for coffee, but my friend had to wait in line for a while.

So Jess, how did you know it was me? You totally should have come and said hi!

Ahhh, because you posted a picture on a thread I was looking at a while back!

And well... I will if I see you next time! Which may be a fair way away, because it really is just too early. :P

Wouldn't you say that the "aye" thing in NZ is similar to the "eh" thing in Canada?

*lol* I guess we aren't so far apart in our vernacular then. I live pretty close to those Canadians. ;)

I'm almost from Canada, eh? Actually, it sounds more like aye. Or how I pronounce aye...

Oh, yah, dat der. I'm almost from Canada, eih?

I should go to sleep.
