*this has nothing to do with the actual post, I just really enjoy saying it and my friends, family and the Pilot are kind of over hearing it and apparently saying it to Cute Reporter is 'inappropriate' and 'not productive,' to which I say, whatever. (And also I say, please do not fire me, stray blog-reading workmates, hopefully none of whom are Cute Reporter, because that would be awkward. And also I say, speaking of animals, on Oct 30 Pets N Vets in Chch is having a Halloween party and you bring your pet and both of you wear a costume and there is a prize and does anyone want to go with me?)
I'm not really sure I have the post to follow that intro but in a world where Justin Bieber is launching a range of nail polish, what do any of us really have any more? Certainly not the freedom to visit the museum at any time of the month. (Those of us who are ladies. Dudes, you may go to the museum whenever you please, which in my experience is "not very often.") I know this has been splattered over the news like spaghetti sauce on the inside of the microwave, but for those of you living in caves/not New Zealand, we have an exhibit in our national museum that the preggers and the menstruating are not encouraged to visit.
I was going to rant on about that for a while in an uninformed, vaguely femiracist manner but became distracted because I just realised that the 'chef de mission' for something like, say, the Commonwealth Games is not actually a food chef, but the dude in charge. I am not kidding. I did not know that. I have wondered before why the opinion of the NZ team's chef for the Olympics was so important, and always kind of assumed it was because management were too busy to comment on stuff and he was the only guy around. Oh my God, how embarrassing.
I'm going to go and sit somewhere peaceful and think hard about my future now, but before I do I'll leave you with this clip of a panda throwing a tantrum. (If you're at work you might want to turn off the volume, although personally I think the overexcited commentary adds to it. Also I embedded it a bit wrong but whatever, it's still panda tantrum time.)
Kiss me, you animal!
