Time for my - kia ora!

I'm a Māori in and I like writing stories for young people.

Right now I'm working on two projects and a novel which means I'm in my head more than irl, and I get very forgetful about regular, boring stuff like putting the rubbish out, brushing my hair, and paying bills.

I love:

and wearing masks.

It's nice to be here! 😊

Consumer NZ launches petition for state-owned wholesaler, to break the supermarket duopoly.

Congratulate yourself for doing difficult things, even if they might not seem difficult to others.


Made rainy day bagels for dinner; making my house smell so good!

Morning walk in New Plymouth with my kid about to run me down 😌

I just sent in my draft script ON TIME, it's a miracle 💫 I'm so happy 😁

Mother's Day, alcohol, gambling 

Buying a nice bottle of gin for my mother for Mother's Day. I don't drink so, much like betting on racehorses, I just choose one with a cool name

Erect-crested Penguin

Medium-sized crested penguin, endemic to New Zealand. Note the distinct broad yellow eyebrow rising over the eye to form a stiff brush-like crest. Also look for pale blue skin at the base of the bill. A subantarctic breeder, with main colonies on Bounty and Antipodes Islands. Disperses widely at the end of breeding season. A small number molt on the east coast of the North and South Islands in the fall. Forms small groups at sea. Voice a low-pitched booming bray. Distinguished from Snares and Fiordland Penguins by pale white-blue skin at bill base and less “V-shaped” crest when seen head-on.


I just slept ten hours, I am a goddess 💃🤩

Our brains literally evolved to NOT pay attention to boring stuff

We are forced to do boring things because that keeps other folks wealthy

The reason why you want to do hobbies all day is that you were supposed to be an artisan

Artisans were once seen to be the clearest sign of civilisation, not a burden

We have enough food now that all humanity could master the lyre

But we have chosen coin

and coin does not sing

Food and farts 

I made a vege soup for dinner: kumara base, spiced with garam masala and cardamom. It was delish and now I'm all farty 🤗💨
