  3. Clearly what she meant to say was;

    Woke up in a hotel room next to a racehorse head. In Rotorua with Jeanette Fitzsimons.

  6. Monday – Woke up in Jeanette Fitzsimons head in a hotel room next to a racecourse in Rotorua.
    Tuesday- Being Jeanette Fitzsimons.
    Wednesday- Being Jeanette Fitzsimons still.
    Thursday- Woke up at the side of a road in a ditch.
    Friday- Go back to that hotel with disturbingly low ceilings.
    Saturday-Fall into minibar, back inside Jeanette Fitzsimons head.
    Sunday- Sell Russel Norman a trip for $200.00, he says he saw me from inside Jeanette Fitzsimons head. Jeanette buys a puppet, she is pretty good at it too. Cool.
    Monday- Think about how awesome the Green Party is and the shit it can do, from inside Jeanette Fitzsimons head.

  7. I really wish I had read past the first line of her blog.
    I could have worked in “Jeanette dressed as the elephant”

  9. “The old grey mare ain’t what she used to be……”
    Chorus from a popular song many decades ago.

  10. Love those comments, should have written, “woke up next to an elephant pretending go be JF ” Said “Kia ora” but elephant didn’t get it, turned into dinosaur before me eyes, just another day in politics.
