The current NZ flag has been around since 1902. Every now and then someone tries to start a movement to get the flag changed. Then everyone disagrees on whether or not the flag should be changed and if it was changed, what the new design would be. Recently the New Zealand Herald started a new campaign to change the flag. A TV presenter asked the prime minister about the issue and asked him to draw the flag design he preferred. Someone then bought his drawing on an internet auction site for $10,150.
And that was Stick News for Friday the 19th of February. Kia ora.
But did you know this meaning of the word company?
n. the fact of being with sb else and not alone
So if you say,I like Tom’s company, then, depending on the context, you could mean that you like his business, or you could mean that you like spending time with him or hanging out with him.
This is a line from today’s song: The truth is I like my own company best
That means that he enjoys being by himself.

conversations with sarah
Are you gay?
Rob What’s the Big Gay Out? ビッグ・ゲイ・アウトって何？
Sarah It’s a gay festival that was on in Auckland. オークランドで開催された同性愛者たちのフェスティバル。
Rob Are you gay? あなたはゲイ？
Sarah No, I just like free festivals. いいえ、無料で参加できる祭りが好きなだけです。
Rob You didn’t have to be gay to go? ゲイじゃなくても参加できる？
Sarah No, I don’t think so. Anyway, how could they tell? Make you walk through a gay detector on the way in … ? できると思いますよ。誰も見分けられないでしょう？さもなくばゲイ審査官の前を通って入場するとか？
Rob How was it? 祭りはどうでしたか？
Sarah It was good. There were lots of people wearing really cool costumes. And the music was good. I just wanted to go and see Annie Crummer, actually. I really like her. And she was awesome. 楽しかった。多くの人がとてもカッコいいコスチュームを着ていた。音楽もよかった。私の実の目当ては Annie Crummer でした。私は彼女の大ファンです。それに彼女のパフォーマンスは最高でした。
If you told me this time last year That I would feel like I do now Well, I wouldn't have believed you It's not just a question Of my being alone The truth is I like my own company best If the truth is to be known I didn't realize, babe, how much I cared All I want to do is to be with you And everything else seems unimportant compared
