Places to go, people to be

There are things I'd like to be blogging about today: the final death of Project Hayes (not heartbroken; it was environmentally marginal, and there are plenty of other large wind projects in the pipeline); Auckland's efforts to leverage its local prostitution ban into a nationwide one; the arrest and expected extradition of Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom in Auckland (which, because our own media are so obsessed with themselves, we had to read about on BBC) and its parallels with the UK TVShack case; or the fact that our extradition agreement with the USA not only includes abortion, but also sodomy, which hasn't been a crime here since 1986. But sadly, I'm busy. I'm off to attend New Zealand's largest roleplaying convention, and my brain is full of other Things (some of them squamous, formless and shifting, and waiting to eat you).

Normal bloggage will resume on Tuesday.
