Orange ya gonna go?

I envy people who stop at orange lights.

To have nothing better to do, but to voluntarily add at least three minutes to their total commute time, all the while sitting in the driver’s seat with a passenger who’s hashtagging something, and listening to some repetitive advertisement on the radio…..

The History and Meaning of Colored Traffic Lights

It’s very inconsiderate when the person behind you is likely running late for work. Which is generally always the case at 8:59am. As it was for me this morning.

Before you label me a hoon, let me clarify, it was an orange light on a turning signal. So all cars were going at about 10km/ph. It’s not like anyone had to speed through anything to get through the light. This van was basically at the light when it turned orange.

Just saying. It’s ok to go through it. That’s why it’s orange and not red.

Even if it’s red actually, while all the cops are busy catching COVID. Unless you’ve got a temperature, you’ll likely get away with it.

Am kidding. Don’t break the law. Or endanger lives.

But seriously, the orange light… YOLO right?


Adorable Ardern

Just putting it out there.

Is there even a point, having an election in New Zealand next month?

Jacinda Ardern is the most loved woman on the planet.

Jacinda Ardern

Which would make Nationals Opposition Leader Judith Collin’s the most ambitious woman on the planet. And silliest.

No doubt she’s got a lot of time and money invested into running. I think she’s better off splurging on diamond encrusted stilettos and feasting on lobster at five-star resorts rather than facilitating a campaign which is destined to fail.

I find it a bit sus that the long-serving politician is taking over from Todd Muller, who in a surprise move on Tuesday stepped down as party leader citing “health reasons.”

No doubt code for “I’m going to lose,” if you ask me.

Also, turns out Mr Muller led the party for only 53 days, toppling previous leader Simon Bridges in a leadership coup that came amid stagnant polling numbers for their party.

Dear Nationals, it wasn’t Mr Bridges who reduced the numbers. It’s anyone who is not Jacinda Ardern.

Also, I’d look out for Mr Bridges and Mr Muller dining out in five-star hotels with swanky attire and gold-plated cuffs. These men were smart to bow out. Considering most men are dumb, I wouldn’t mind if it was one of these blokes who led a country. One who acknowledges defeat is rare, although they sort of cowered from it too.

Nevertheless, women always do it better – hence Ms Ardern’s running reign. And Ms Collin’s ambitious campaign.

May the best woman win.

*cough* Jacinda.
