Passionate Pasha Pull

Postponing a Pash

For those who don’t know, NSW has been copping some mighty powerful storms lately. The kind that only roll in every decade, at most. In Newcastle a coal freighter ship, the Pasha Bulker, was washed in by the rough seas and stranded on the shoreline. Apart from the threat of pollution and the fact that a whopping big ship has lost its purpose, it has a nice spectral ghostship-like presence for visitors.

Since it’s quite a drive to Newcastle I haven’t had the opportunity to see it, though I would like to. The latest in news is that authorities have determined to haul the hulking mass back to its home out at sea. But they’ve been failing. They said they’re taking their time getting it back out to maintain the safety of those pulling the ship. As long as it doesn’t spill its toxic contents I hope it’s there a little longer. It looks cool.

My friend also alerted me to some funny Pasha youtube vids:

In other news Paris is out of prison already. Judging from the interview she still doesn’t understand why someone as popular as her should be imprisoned, as she goes on and on about how “traumatising” her three weeks in prison were. After all, it’s not her fault she’s so pretty. And she can’t be held responsible for her actions when she’s in the spotlight. Right? Wait till she just about kills someone with her reckless driving. Maybe then her claims that she has “changed” wouldn’t be revealed as a “my experience was traumatic/ God’s plan” perspective but more of a “I’m lucky I didn’t kill someone and destroy their lives” outlook.
