I had plans for an analytical political round up. An angsty tantrum foiled such plans. Debating and discussing the opinions you have spent time forming is something to thrive on. This blog doesn't seem the best forum for such debates. It also takes a lot of effort to intelligently write on important matters. A National government was expected. I am not a member of the John Key fan club. He is not a leader that promotes compromise. Congratulations must go to the Greens. Let's hope for positive, tangible change from them.
Today is my final day of being 17. Last year I regrettably missed the opportunity to obsessively sing '16 going on 17'. The 2nd of December will not go to waste; I intend to spend it with Stevie Nicks 'On the Edge of Seventeen'. Are your irony sensors singing? I am the eligible age to vote exactly a week after the General Election. Blarghf.

A spontaneous holiday to Dunedin heralded a jackpot. The op shops were kind. I will show ze clothing when I wear it.

This movie. An action film shot like art house. Dialogue, fake blood and music (listen) were used sparingly and precisely. The hands did cover the face during the violence BUT IT WAS WORTH IT. Shots of the driving were such a pleasure to watch. I even liked the tacky font used. Also, Ryan Gosling. I command ye to watch'th it.
Finished reading 'Dewey: The Small Town Library Cat who Touched the World'. I have no issue with gratuitous talk of kitties so I found it enjoyable. And Mr John Green read out the second chapter of TFIOS. Have I mentioned 'The Fault in Our Stars'?

Let me translate. Blue hair does not mean Ramona Flowers. It means the tips will be semi-permanently blue. I apologise for the lack of bad assery. The eating of stone fruit is far less philosophical than it sounds. Apricots, nectarines, peaches and cherries are abundant in my corner of the universe. Though I suppose to 'eat stone fruit' could also be interpreted as expanding ones mind through the consumption of difficult and hard to understand stone-like ideas. Yeaahh.
