Russell Kirkpatrick's Journal
Having attended the chaotic but wonderful NZ Natcon last weekend has reignited my hunger for the company of writers, readers and fans. So in a rash and ill-considered decision I'm off to Adelaide and the Australian Natcon, to be held this weekend.
Currently I'm using a wi-fi hotspot at Auckland airport. I have a bit of the lurgi and I'm hoping I don't get quarantined in Melbourne! There are some people I really, really want to talk to in Adelaide.
Victoria has given up on trying to contain H1N1 now and concentrate on protecting the elderly. So I imagine there'll be a lot of previously quarantined people relieved that they don't have to cancel that plane trip to SA for the Queens Birthday long weekend. They'll be more worried at Adelaide airport about us diseased Melbournians than Kiwis.
If a tall, skinny bearded guy harasses you at conjecture, probably on sunday, then... that's me ;). I apologise in advance *g*
Have a good time and make me jealouser.
