littleheaven: (Stargate Jack Was Here by Icon_Ascension)
Yesterday I got my "EasyVote" pack in the mail, for next week's General Election. I always feel emotional when I go to vote. Not sure why. Maybe it's beacuse New Zealand was the first country in the world to give women the vote. Maybe it's beacause there are so many people in the world who have to fight and sometimes die for the privilege, or know that any vote they do cast will be nullified by a corrupt government. Whatever the reason, it's a special feeling to know you are doing something that may possibly change your country's history. Especially this year, where the two major parties are polling exactly neck and neck, it makes each vote feel more important. So I've tucked my special little electoral ID card in my wallet and next week hopefully we'll have a new Government :crosses fingers:

On lighter subjects - I was woken early yesterday morning by a bunch of brickies who had arrived to work on the new house behind ours. It sounded like they were using a pneumatic post-hole borer. Then they turned on the radio and started singing really loud. It was like Butt-crack Idol out there. Actually, some of them weren't bad. Kinda ruined my sleep-in though.

Heh. I've ordered Stargate Atlantis Season 1 on DVD. It was cheap, and I think it's kinda growing on me, from the early eps I managed to download. Besides, everyone's raving about Season 2, so I want to get the back-story in. Torri Higginson and Joe Flanigan will be here in a few weeks for Armageddon Pulp Expo. There is going to be an NZ premiere screening of The Rising (yep, it's never been on TV here!) introduced by Torri and loads of Stargate giveaways, so I'm going to that. I want to get a photo op with Torri, she was such a sweetie to me at Burbank. She kissed me and told me I was adorable :o) And at Armageddon, they're only $25NZ each. May as well get one with Joe, too. Chris Judge was coming but had to cancel. Damn.
