The Hobbit

What's The Hobbit got to do with Cancer, Kidneys & Immigration?
Maybe everything.

Recently, New Zealand lost it's dignity, thanks to the Prime Minister -John Key, who fought for a deal to have the movie filmed on location in NZ. Laws were changed to gratify the minds of the powers-that-be. No, not the sovereign. Warner Brothers.

Employment laws were changed to bold the difference between employee and contractor. Now workers in the film industry don't have the right to take action for unfair dismissals, en masse, because now they're contractors and not employees.

John was nimble, John was quick.

At the snap of his fingers, a law was changed to cater to a multi-million (maybe trillion/billion/fagillion) dollar American studio. That's awesome.

My husband just wants Residency.
That's all.

Once again, democracy is hindrance.
The funny part is ... Larry is in the film industry. Had he applied for work in NZ based on his career alone, Residency would not have been a problem.

He has two things on his side.
Married to a citizen and his career.
He has two things against him.
His hostile kidneys.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
