Another reason not to fly

How fortunate that flying is no longer morally acceptable, given the Aviation Security Service's latest purchase - a strip search scanner!

In fact, our family is considering flying to my grandmother's 100th birthday celebration in January. Here's hoping the scanner's use remains optional. Are they going to use this thing on children?

One can't help thinking the service could have found a better way to spend $250,000 given the only aviation security problems we have in NZ are drugs and pest insects, as far as I know.

Lil needs ...

Daisy had a go at this in her blog; it was very funny. You do a Google search on "your name needs" and comment on what comes up. "Lisia needs" comes up with nothing at all so I tried "Lil needs":

  1. Lil needs help.

    Well, obviously :)

  2. Lil needs a gawjus guy.

    Already got one! (Except I would never refer to him as "gawjus". Having attempted to teach two children to spell, I am violently opposed to the use of cutesy alternative spellings.)

  3. Lil Needs Her Morning Coffee.

    I can't remember the last time I drank caffeinated coffee ... even when I did drink coffee it wasn't in the morning - I used to have a cup after lunch to see me through the afternoon.

  4. Lil needs someone to raise her from the gloom and doom of her life.

    Oh dear ;)

  5. Lil needs all the beauty sleep she can get.

    Beauty sleep or any kind of sleep! I'm 35 years old (for another few days) and I have two kids! Of course sleep is right up there on my list of preferred ways to spend free moments.

  6. What aspect of LiL needs the most work: (please leave details in the comments).

    Oh my goodness! No, please do not leave details in the comments!
