happy

Just sitting out in the paddock, having a learn..

Last night someone asked me to look after their flock of stud sheep for three weeks while they are away overseas. Basically it just involves checking and moving them regularly, which means I'd be driving up to Horokiwi every 2-3 days, puttering around for about an hour and coming back. Any idea what one should charge for such activities?

Today I am annoyed with war journalists. I actually watched the news last night and as usual they had the latest bombing from Iraq (although I note that nowadays it's in the 'in other news' slot as opposed to main headlines). There was a shot of a woman who had obviously lost someone, wandering through the crowd, crying. A split second before the clip finished, you could see the end of a large camera lens come into the shot, getting right up in her face, getting that perfect picture of The Grief Of War to send home for big dollars. Assholes.

I love stockings. Just saying..
