I want a cup cake.
Point of order: can't really see Labour working with ACT. Or with any of the fundy Christian spinnoffs.
otherwise, please continue.
Ronnie Hugh Morrieson's house that he wrote many of his books in- and I think of the scene of the painting and the fire from The Scarecrow- is now a KFC.
Yeh, I read the Bell Jar. One of our enlightened English teachers gave it to us. She was great! It allowed me to have a much better class of depression.
If you spent years 14-18 reading aspirational novels then end up on the outside you might want some chump change back!
Seriously though she was a great teacher, for that reason. Sheeeesh if people didn't like 'dark' themes we could wipe about half to two thirds of all 'literature' starting with Greek drama...
"She's a vindictive nutjob and a liar who has relentlessly pursued personal vendettas through official office"
While shes no angel, pretty inexperienced, and has a belief system that probably doesnt well sit with most of the readers here, that seems rather strong comment based on one newspaper article.
It's not one newspaper article -- albeit one based on deep archive searches and dozens of face-to-face interviews -- it's a quite well documented pattern of behaviour, from the moment she became mayor of Wasilla and foisted the creepy "loyalty tests" on half a dozen employees, right through the Jerry Springer action of "Troopergate", where she quite clearly abused the office of governor to pursue a family feud. She's a nightmare.
I bet that John Banks leaves her in the dust. That would be a debate worth watching. Palin v Banks X : the New Nightmare
agree with Robyn googling is probably the way to go...though I would use searched the internet more in written. Or looked on the net.
It would still be considered slang?
And as always, can say it how you featherstonehaugh you like, with two or three, and a lamington for all I care.
It probably was a RB listener column- I remember him talking about the America of the free and brave offering the internet to the poor Chinese, only to censor words like pron as s, etc...
so this meant no access to embassy sites or anything of that nature...
yeh think you could be on to something David with the PM as accessory thing.
Where did I here the rumour Key came home with a whack of cash for the Nats, had a dinner with Shipley when it was in fashion, the quid pro quo was getting into the House of Lords (strike that) parliament?
Is Allan Bollard the Sam Cash for our times?
Wasn't there a story about a cheque that went round and round without paying any tax, and another about how to grow your small business by putting a couple of bullet holes in the wall?
(seems plausibly better than comparing you to Gerry Durrell. feel free to misquote and attribute as your publicist demands.)
