A Funny thing happened at Aviation Security today

With very few air travellers the good Security staff at Auckland International were a bit more chatty than usual.

I was asked where I was going.

"The USA."

Business or Pleasure?

At this point, I smirked 😏.

What kind of an S&M reprobate do you take me for?

That's quite a kink. 

"Yeah I've got this fetish for wearing masks and leaving a relatively safe country and entering one with a raging pandemic and a very unstable political system so I can sit relatively safely in a hotel room gorging myself on overly processed food and subsequently annoying all of my internet friends for 2 weeks"

Oh and I have my Birthday on Monday.

I should have just said I was going to a birthday party. Fewer words but less of a tale.

Location Location Location

I have been doing my yearly scrying and surprise it is a lucky year for Dragons although we must stay away from Angry dogs and mind our health.

Despite last year I still managed to travel a fair wad.

I don't see a quick exit from the new normal but I will make the most of it. Dog or no Dog.

Flying the Roost

In one week I will fly to the USA and a two-week Isolation and work. It feels a little like when I left during the first outbreak with the gears changed.

I am also going to be flying into what appears to be an increasingly unstable USA. 

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at home. The longest stint since 2008. It has been a very special half summer to remember.

But I must do my job whilst I can and enjoy each day as it comes.

It's not a popularity contest

A happy new year and stuff.

I had a very interesting and insightful one.

With less than 20 days to depart, I have a lot of invitations on my plate but I am being careful to manage my time and energy.

I have been able to invest a lot of time in my friends and family this time at home. It turns out I am mildly addictive.

No sooner have I departed then another invitation arrives or I get asked back.

I visited some friends on the 30th and I commented as much. K said it must be difficult being so popular.

It is my pleasure.
