Yesterday was Squish’s birthday!! I’m still in Blenheim so was working from home, which was nice coz Squish had the day off so I got to annoy him all day! It was a pretty chill one, I got coffee with my bestie, took my dog for a walk, had sammies with Squish for lunch, and then after work went for a BIG OLD GEOCACHE (and dragged Squish along with me.) I go home to Tāmaki Makaurau tomorrow so had to make the most of the cool air and chill vibes.
I also have to shout out Sunshine, a newsy reader’s dog that I didn’t realise was chill like that???

All other news has been set aside for a sec: we've got new Taylor swift coming
So yesterday at the VMAs (results below) Taylor Swift announced, during her speech for the top award of the night (video of the year) that on October 21st she’s releasing a whole new album, called ‘Midnights,’ saying it’s “the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life.”
I for one wasn’t expecting this, I can’t wait for it, and god I’m going to be annoying until/ during/ after this drops!!!!

taylor swift releasing a new album + harry styles releasing a new movie = me releasing a lot of annoying commentary and emotions
One third of Pakistan is now under water
Yesterday I spoke to you about Pakistan’s historic flooding, and how they’re in desperate need of international aid, today, their climate minister says that ‘one-third of Pakistan is completely submerged.’
“It’s all one big ocean, there’s no dry land to pump the water out,” Sherry Rehman told AFP, adding it had created a “crisis of unimaginable proportions.”
The launch of NASA's giant moon rocket is delayed after an issue with its engine
Yesterday Squish told me about Artemis I - the biggest rocket ever developed by NASA - saying “in the morning you’re either going to have a really good story about space, or a really bad story about space” (if it failed to launch/ blew up.)
In the end, it’s more of a… delayed story about space, because “one of the four SLS core-stage engines failed to reach the proper temperature for launch.” So with just 40 minutes left on the countdown, the launch got delayed.
The Artemis I (when/ if it has lift off) will be used to send astronauts back to the moon, and no doubt Squish will have an update for us all about this on Friday’s Shit Show episode!!
