Right now there is a storm rolling in and one side of the office the sun is streaming into the office and on the other side there is a blanket of rain covering the usual view of mountains and fields of sheep. The air is dead still.
I wish I had my camera as the evidence would make this post 1000 time better… the contrast between the sun lighting up the trees in front of the storm is stunning and a little bit comical actually because it appears that Queenstown no longer exists; the storm has eaten up the west coast of the South Island and won’t stop until it hits the east coast.
It actually looks like the country stops about half a km from where I work; that if you got to that point you’d just drop off. There’d be no obvious cliff, no hint that you were going to drop off any time soon, you’d just get there and disappear. Into oblivion. Being a Monday and working at a job I don’t love, that might be quite nice… I’ll settle for a massive storm – they’re always exciting. I’ll run to the window like the kids do at school when it hails, it’ll be mayhem! Kind of…not really. But similar.
Just a little shout out to this fine country of mine and the international export quality everything that it produces…Whoop whoop!
The sheep, electronic funds transfer at point of sale (you’re welcome Canada), women’s right to put their two cents in, models, actors, singers, DJ’s…people and music in general and not to mention the movies: Lord of the Rings, Whale Rider, The Piano, Once were warriors, Heavenly Creatures, Eagle vs Shark and soon to be The Hobbit. Go New Zealand! It’s your birthday!
The next instalment of greatness comes from “Scarfies” director, Robert Sarkies, called “Two little boys” which prompted this post in the first place and got me higher out of the grump I’ve been in for the last two days (fucking hormones…)
Here is the trailer for what is sure to be NZ’s next amaze balls* film:
Roll on 20th September!!! That’s when it opens in NZ, it’s not just a date I’m looking forward to for no good reason.
*this word now features in the Oxford English Dictionary…my thoughts on this later. Or not at all. But just quickly, what the?! English is going to shit…
