A sunny autumn afternoon saw over 250 people turned out in Wellington to protest against , the now, three years of war and occupation in Iraq. People of all ages, from babies to grannies, were present for a thoughtful but relaxed demonstration marking the third anniversary of the US invasion. Speakers of all ages emphasised the need to halt the US global onslaught on basic freedoms and human rights.Local techheads "geeks 4 peace" showed that you don't have to be cool to be against the war. "We believe our message "1001 11011 010101 00011 0001 0011110 01111" speaks for itself" said one open_source_activist. "We see the right to run your own lives as no less important than the right to run your own OS".Unfortunately a moment of street theatre late in the day prompted the remaining three youthful police officers to spring into action. A hasty arrest engendered an atmosphere of tension which then became compounded by extra officers turning up and commencing much pushing, shoving and threatening behaviour. Police then individually launched a seemingly random series of heavy-handed arrests resulting in two people seeking medical attention. " I think if these young fellows had had a more senior officer present none of this would have happened" one veteran protestor remarked. "They just seemed to be lacking a bit of discipline"Organisers asked that the earlier peaceful spirit of the day not be overshadowed by the police violence. "We understand that as officers of the state they are obliged to use arbitrary and disproportionate violence whenever the state deems it appropriate" one commented. "We would ask that people instead think of the brutality occuring daily, on a far greater scale, in Iraq, Israel and Afghanistan and put their efforts in that direction" he said.

Maybe i will read
sometimes i just think its okey when really its not?in a case like this i shouldnt run or jump or should sit still and wait it out and attempt to get some sort of shit sorted out?Im working for the university now and the union. seems i have fallen into better things, tho the pay is the same as prior.
I woke up today, not sad like i have been for the last week. I think I have decided on a new way for this year called buying books and reading them, Im going to get a builder to build a bookcase as big as the big wall in my living room and layer it with books, all the books, the endless supply, the things that make me happy and start collecting and reading with wit and vigor, why shouldn't I, it seems pointless to lament , and the curiosity of my lament probably holds no fascination for the serious mined love interest

will attempt to go to this gig, though will probably have to spend $50 on taxi and the like to get home, unless my kind flatmate gives me a ride, or unless i just dont drink, which seems unlikely.............
But another point is am I going to be the only women over 30 there and if i am, is going alone makingme look like a loser. Maybe I am a loser and if I just accept that fact and dont push it, maybe then i can have fun and enjoy myself, or maybe ....oh I dont know? sometimes it all gets far too deap.......I guess I am a lonely loser though and there is no point trying to figure it out, I might as well as enjoy myself. cause nobody else can do that for me? Or can they

Stole this quote from drunk in a midnight choir
. Wish i could watch Taxi reruns and curl and up and be protected in my nanas house/
Many a Taxi storyline revolved around the romances of the various employees of the Sunshine Cab Company. :Alex Bobby Elaine Jim John Latka Louie Tony.
saw this band, which were weird, They do banjo covers of ac/dc and motorhead.
Someone also stole my wallet. Me cash cards and new photo phone, and I lost a pile of money when the gas company i hired went into liquidation. Its all a bit difficult.....

I did because I wanted you to be free paintings
ta for nothing
I began to feel that freedom should beget freedom. But it did'nt work. In a way, the reverse happened, and the more involved I got in my painting, which subsequently led to many outside contracts and a lot of visitors and the writing of books, the less that I was liked in the community. The more I was different, the more I was rejected. And I finally had to realise that they were not interested in freedom. They were interested in the survival of the Benedictine Order and it particular in the survival of the Abbey. So the Kind of person they accepted became more and more the kind of person who would fit into the frame they wanted

Familiar acts are beautiful through love
( percy Bysshe Shelley 1792-1822)
Dress up, dance, laugh. I will never be able to throw Love out the window.
( Arthur Rhimbaud 1854-1891)
