New Zealand article of the week:
Waiheke's Surfdale Sausager
Personally, I'd have called him the Waiheke Snag-Slinger.
Anyway some bored person has been leaving sausages in people's mailboxes for a while now. This is kinda funny because Waiheke Island is a notoriously rich-person place and picturing wealthy indivuduals fucking perplexed at finding sausages everywhere just tickles me. At the end of the article though...
The Mad Butcher - Sir Peter Leitch, who is a Waiheke resident - says he has never heard of the incidents and has yet to be targeted himself.
The Mad Butcher, a dude who has made his living of sausages, is on the island and yet to be targeted. Surely he's the prime suspect. Surely he'd stuff a snag in his mailbox just to throw off the scent.
I got a suspiciously hefty pay this week, about $600 more than I normally get. I queried with Payroll, because some of it has already gone to my student loan and if it's an error I don't want to be left holding the bag of responsibility. Turns out with the pay increase I was meant to be backdated from last year. I thought it had happened. They said it hadn't so.. Thanks! I put some of the money towards Dramfest - a whiskey festival happening in March this year. Gonna drive up with some friends, sample whisky for two days. Might eat some food too, who knows?
Oh. I think I've finished one of my writing projects. Start to finish, it's completed as of last night. About 90,000 words, started around October when I was absolutely stuck in the middle of another project. I wanted a distraction and never stopped. Funny, the previous project was stuck at 90k words as well, but it had taken me almost a year to get there. I knocked out the same amount, and a complete story no less, in half the time. Will it be shit? Fuckin' probably, but I've had so much fun doing it and now I just want to write other stories. Onwards.
