In the British Isles, it is a tradition that women may propose marriage only on leap years.

One used, slightly soiled male available to the right lady, apply within

i had a dream

That the wealthy in New Zealand rose up and demanded the govt stopped pampering them and giving them the best tax regime in the entire world (FACT) and started to demand equality for those at the bottom of our society.

They've prospered beyond their wildest dreams in the past 15+ years and have finally said enough.... "we don't want to live in a country that treats its underclass with such contempt" was the rallying cry.

I awoke in a cold sweat and fired off an email to Fran Sullivan demanding she write a column chastising the rich for being xenophobic trators

We must protect the very rich individuals and corporate entities right to buy that which we can't afford ourselves... and if the rich won't spearhead that call themselves its up to their lapdogs

peace was restored

I may never sleep again

Today I'll be reading about the experiences and reality that so many have endured and continue to face in and around Christchurch due to today being the anniversary of last years big shake.

As ever it's going to be tough to hold back the tears as I confronted by life in my hometown.

I'm proud that my work has helped raise funds and support some whom are there but also acutely aware I want to do more, to somehow fix the unfixable. To mend the hearts and minds of those who have suffered so much.

Somedays I wish I had a Faith as I can see how those that do can lean upon that as a means to cope.

Peace, unity and strength to those who've shown countless times what it is to be human in a place and time of chaos.

Blown out my mobile data plan in two days

Retarded extra data fees here I come

Might have to revert to snail mail

Lol as if

Cutting back on whores and champagne more like

If only

Chat with drunks in inner city as I kill time

Breakfast with Ronald (yuck)

Fly home

Blob out listening to The Clean

Musical adventures

In Wellington today

Can't wait to hear some good tunes, drink too much and to howl at the moon

my new homes theme song


So so so tired

But I has the coffee

And the coffee

And the coffee

And maybe one more

Not a bouncy boy today

Which is sad as its puddles on the street day

Maybe a coffee to takeaway on the way to school

for some of us

moving house is very very stressful and an almost unsurmountable task

the allure of the cardboard fort is strong

perhaps if I called squatters rights and defended the place hard I won't have to move

on a serious note - looking for a decent afforadble rental in auckland currently - worst time ever
