Another War?

So, we are going to war in Libya now? That's just fucking awesome. Well, we know where this is going to end up. As if I didn't need anything else to feed my expat angst...

7 weeks and counting

So, in about seven weeks we’ll be back in the bubble for a visit. Our best mate is turning 40, so it will be good fun. We’ll also be heading to NYC to spend some days with very dear friends and in between we’ll get a dose of family (if any are reading this, I mean that most affectionately!). I’m really excited about the trip…April/May will be a perfect time to be in the US, especially traveling between the two coasts and in between. Mentally, I’ve started repatriating. I mean, I realise it is a little over a year away, but emotionally I need to begin the process now. It’s kind of bitter sweet. The longer I stay away from San Francisco, the more I miss it. I don’t miss much else, though. Americans scare me now, but not for the obvious reasons. It comes down to two words: entitlement and selfishness.
