No more flying for me

“These new measures will affect all flights from Canada to the United States and include not only screening at the security checkpoint but also searches at the boarding gate,” spokeswoman Suzanne Perseo told Canwest News Service. “This includes 100 per cent physical search of person and 100 per cent physical search of carry-on baggage and personal items.”

Air Canada also said in a release that new rules will also limit activities by passengers and crew while in U.S. airspace. “The final hour of flight customers must remain seated, will not be allowed to access carry-on baggage, or have personal belongings or other items on their laps,” the country’s largest air carrier said, citing new U.S. Transportation Security Administration policies.

Are you kidding me?  No personal belongings?  100 Percent Searches?   Why bother flying anymore?  They’ve given up all semblence of courage or sanity in the face of 3 successful hijackings.  3.
Why not just close everyone up in their own homes, announce a 100-percent curfew?

To Do: 2010

Instead of a rundown of 2009, let’s look towards getting things done in 2010.  2009 was a good year; I’ve been employed at something my High  School Career councilor said was my certain destiny.  Wait.  Is that Good?  I’m meeting expectations.  Does that make me a B student?

I spoke to a conference on Anti-Spam technologies in DC for my last employer;  I held a medium sized room in rapt silence and mirth for an hour or so while I extolled the virtues of my employers product.  Why doesn’t that translate into never ending bliss?  I should exceed expectations somehow.  The Scotty Trick doesn’t work around here.

(The Scotty Trick is to under-promise and over-deliver)

Elizabeth has been my biggest challenge this year; I expected it but I wasn’t ready for how much of a challenge she would present.  I expect a rocky decade to come.

Jen continues to be obsessed with flirting online with people; playing a Gorean slave-girl  The only thing that takes her out of it is to gather her up leave the house.  I don’t want to leave the house every time I want her attention; I want it for just talking some days too.

I’ve gotta get more on top of my job; I’m still not the expert I have been in other capacities; I need to work on my delivery too (still).  Sometimes when I’m being negative it’s just me working things out loud and not me being negative.  I need to find a way to do that in a positive way.

Do I have to do anything more for the House?  I have no idea.

I need to send my written notice out.   Soon.

Jesus is the Answer

So, it’s almost Christmas around here; so things are getting busy and things are getting wrapped up in paper and hidden in closets until Friday.  We weren’t going to be exchanging gifts (between Jen and I) ut she busted that notion yesterday by buying me some gifts, so I have reciprocated.

It’s been a quiet stretch over here at the blog; mostly due to ongoing stress relating to a rather large purchase (a house) and an unwillingness to put pen to paper, so to speak.
