but just don't believe a word Key says
- rely on your local community and people who care
Do you think, and I ask in earnest, that's what he secretly wants?
could someone tell John Key there are still people living in much worse conditions and physically unsafe suburbs in Chch East
you seriously think he doesn't know? caring is another matter
caring is another matter
worth noting the proximity to his own electorate
geographically, perhaps. socially, worlds away
So now that we have managed mostly negative nouns, can we get some positive ones to make voting easier? ;)
jus' sayin' (for tonyH)
CAPTURE : )
I'm finally feeling it. That feeling as the Clark Govt and the world economy sank at the same time, and incomprehension and denial that went with both events, have moved toward a more open attitude. Divisions are still tribal, but there seems to be less open war between the tribes.
My Word of the year is “indeed”
My Word of the decade is “going forward” well ok that two words and yes when people say it to me, I must resist the urge to smack them
the futility of futurity...

I know, what happened to 'in the future'?
...and as any fool know,
Super Sid was a half back,

hmmm, I might just nominate 'I know' for W(s)OTD
- said in the wonderful Kim Hill's dulcet tones of credulity, of course...
"Yeah, nah" is my Twitter bio, FWIW. :)
For 2012, I’d nominate “dotcom”
It touches on SO many things….both directly and indirectly.
For the decade, I like “truthiness”.
Levesentimental. Looking back to an era when journalists were trusted to bring us the truth not car crash porn.
if we're going with brave new words
for a brave new world, I offer: neoconillogicalism

One day 20 July will be a holiday. And we older versions are the lucky ones to have witnessed it.
Can we add new countries, too?
I see The Herald has discovered some place called Equador!
must be in the SpellCzech Republic...
...and the Sunday Times had a column by
some bloke named Rob Oram, on Sunday
I am in favour of bringing back words such as higgledy-piggledy and jeepers
I went to retweet this. How embarrassing.
I agree Jackie (not about the embarrassment) but about reclaiming such good words. There are a whole lot of very expressive words we no longer use, such as 'beaut' and 'groovy'.

I use "groovy" quite a lot ...
Good to hear.
'Bonza' is another. I quite like 'neat' but not often heard these days. They probably define the decade people experienced the most intensely.
True. I was "there".
They are the "credible" journalists....or so they tell us.
All Credit. (90s but)
I use “groovy” quite a lot …
