HAERE RA


Well folks its good bye from us. We were going to do all sorts of weird shit tonight to keep people guessing about why Roarprawn ceased operating at midnight tonight.

The simple fact of the matter is that we are going to work for a Ministry full time. Yip a public servant gig. As my mum says - a real job...We start tomorrow.

And the State Services Act is a bit of a bitch if you want to be a political commentator. Now we are fairly well positioned as a National Govt cheer leader but from time to time we have to put down our pom poms and give them a piece of our mind and , well you cant do that when you are a public servant. And we are not all that anonymous. After all we have been on telly.

We have had a ball blogging , its fun, outrageous and has ignited the old journo within. We were starting to get some decent numbers again too - up around the 1000 a day.

Now, who knows what will happen in the future - so we wont delete the prawn - but we will locked it away for a while. If someone wants to buy it - well email me on bustedblonde@gmail.com

To all my fellow bloggers, keep up the bastards honest.


Love you all...... BB

Congratulations on getting a real job. A great opportunity for you - but you'll leave a huge gap in the blogosphere.

As for those predictions in the previous post, there wasn't one about Busted Blonde - was yesterday's post for the Aussie Rock not an announcement?

I see that there are still two days to vote on the Brash poll?

Trust that you will continue to keep a watch for any evidence of corruption in our political sphere!

macdoctor said...

Bye, BB. Come back when you get bored of public service! (About this time tomorrow then, Eh?)

As HP said, BB, you will leave a whacking great hole. I will not say Goodbye because have a feeling you will be back in some form. You haven't answered all the questions yet!
All the best for the future to you and the Aussie Rock.

No goodbyes, but an au revoir. Until next time! And thanks for the rib. I'll squeeze out Kiwianatopia one day!

Kia kaha BB - it's been a blast reading all the insider goss, and the restaurant critiques - what about rebranding Roarprawn as a foodie blog until you tire of the dark side?

Hugs and spitty kisses.

You will be missed.

Hey, I will miss you too, TN. You took the piss out of me with such style, and we agreed on some things, like the merits of David Young, oysters, and good wines. Good luck, back in Wellington, and I'll watch this space should you return.

Sad to see you folks go - especially to the dark side! All the best, it's been a blast...

BB this is bound to be a decision that is good for your health!

As now you're employed you won't be taking long lunches and coffee brakes on the taxpayer payroll, nor charging us for those gourmet dinners with fine wine on the premise of trying to so some business for Maori health!

You might even loose some weight doll.

Or is it Maori Affairs, or Education? or even treaty settlements?

Good luck BB.

I'm sure you'll be back

The whanau will miss you. Indeed we do so already.
