Things I do with my time

Often I read news articles. Sometimes they are interesting. Sometimes they are not. But my favourite kind of article is the kind of article with ignorant, bigoted, and hilarious comments.

Column by Australian Greens senator on Julia Gillard’s comments about the Greens.


The greens are nothing but a bunch of anti corporate shrouding themselves in a cloak of environmentalism.

Every single one of their policies is designed to damage business. Their sole aim is to destroy the Australian way of life and drag us kicking and screaming into the dark ages

Hi. My name is Merrin. I’m studying Media Design at Victoria University of Wellington. I have a couple of uni blogs but not really a personal one, so I thought I would start one and see what it turns into. Maybe a politics rant blog, maybe a food blog. Who knows.

In my job, I listen to Australian radio, so I have a fairly keen interest in Australian politics – and knowledge of it beyond most New Zealand residents. I grew up for a while in Australia and my parents live in Canberra. I’ve lived in New Zealand for the majority of my life, though, and I feel a little bad that I don’t know very much at all about New Zealand politics. It certainly doesn’t seem as accessible or accountable as Australian politics – but perhaps that’s just because I haven’t found the right access points or accounts.

Here is a picture of some potatoes I had for lunch.

There is Kapiti Kikorangi blue cheese and wild pork bacon on there. The wild pork bacon is amazing. You can buy it from Moore Wilson’s.
