zeborah: Map of New Zealand with a zebra salient (Default)
I was so busy reading about the US elections that I nearly forgot it was Election Day here. Fortunately the rates bill came this afternoon, reminding me of the existence of governance in New Zealand. So I wandered down the road until I found a sign pointing to a school where I could vote, and upon arriving there, I voted.

On my way back, I righted the sign, which had been blown over in the meantime. Then I went to the library to return some books and borrow some new ones, and then I righted the sign again and came home.

I have my rates set up to get paid by direct debit so that's all done too.

In breaking news, the Prime Minister's husband has had a delivery of fruit salad.

...I love my country.

(OTOH it's really not looking hopeful for a surprise left-wing victory.)

ETA: We're just starting to listen to the head of the Maori party when the studio cuts away to show us the first corporate taxis of the evening. Alas, a false alarm: it's only some guests leaving a party leader's house, not the leader himself leaving to go and claim victory somewhere.

ETA bis: The Labour Party are serving sausage rolls and mini quiches. Still not king.
