Opinion on stuff.co.nz

As usual my procrastination has led me to the stuff.co.nz website. A headline in the Editors' Picks grabbed my attention: Promoting promiscuity under guise of Safe Sex. This article started well and had the potential to have a few good points but lost me at the end with his sudden ending that it was a lesbian Labour MPs fault (he says her sexuality is relevant but I'm really not sure how, is he saying that homosexuals can't have a passion to help the damaged youth in NZ or that they can't have an opinion on family matters?)

I'm not really sure of the point of this post, I think I'm just disappointed that this guy had such a good platform and point to raise on the issue of teen pregnancy and all that (did anyone else feel sick ready about the abortion rates of 11-14 year olds in NZ doubling?) and he dropped the ball on this one by blaming it on someone that probably didn't deserve it and by not actually giving us solutions. Simply pointing out the problem is not enough in my opinion. It's like telling me I have a terminal disease and then sending me home when I should be also told what I can do to fix the problem or at least alleviate the pain.

Do people really get paid to write rubbish and unfinished articles these days? If so can I please apply for that job?

Things I love

It's been a crap day. Just rubbish. So I think I'm gonna make myself feel better by making a list of things I love (in no particular order). Feel free to comment with your lists.

1. Female Celebrites: Joe Cotton and Victoria Beckham. I don't care what everyone says. They're fantastic. They are gorgeous, funny, real/natural. I've read both of Victoria's books and she completely changed my views on magazines. I've gone from easily buying 2 or more a week to not being able to remember the last time I brought one. When I do read them I spend the whole time looking at how the photos have been edited and how absolutely ridiculous the stories are! These girls are cool.

2. Cooking shows - love them.

3. Games shows - just can't get enough!

4. Music videos - I'm amazed by these, I could probably watch them all day. How great to get a whole story/movie into 3-4 minutes. Of course I don't love all of them but lots are so good. My special favourite at the moment: Nickelback: Saving Me.

5. Rokocoko - he's so great. (Hahaha he's dreaming right now! Twitching in his sleep beside me)

6. CSI Las Vegas, Greys Anatomy and Prison Break.

7. My new boots. Yeah. Hot.

8. Music and Fashion. How amazing that after so long people are still coming out with new and different things.

9. Kiwi adverts. How funny are they! The people who come up with some ads are just so talented. Beyond me!

10. Making plans - how great that when things are at their lowest the thought of something that is coming up can make me feel a bit better.

11. Tattoos and piercings. When they're done right they so good. I have both. Love them.

12. My family, Lilly, Kaija and the others who know who they are. You know I wouldn't be here without you. (This is getting soppy, its not meant to)

13. Chocolate. Honestly. It's how I keep my stunning figure. Love it.

14. Travelling. I haven't done much yet but it's gonna be so great. I can't wait to see the things I've only ever seen pictures of. Look out Asia eh Kaija!

That's enough. I probably could keep going but I won't.
