O has been elected by his class to go to a kids' "environmental conference" in Northern New Territories tomorrow. I have to get him to Kowloon for 8am to get on the school coach. I will ask our domestic helper to take him there by train - I really cannot be bothered to drive him to Kowloon, find a place to park, wait around, then trek all the way back to my office.

So, yeah, he was ELECTED! Not sure how to interpret this state of affairs. Either this is a real stink bomb and the kids all picked someone they really detest, or they really think O is the best person for the job. Well yes, he does care about the environment, but kids today grow up caring about the environment, don't they? Anyhow, it'd be nice for him to get out of the classroom for a day and be a part of something special.

He spoke to his aunt last night, who is a specialist on EU environmental law. I over heard him ask,

"So, auntie E, can you tell me the job nature of an environmental warrior?"

"Would you say that your job has a significant impact on the protection of the environment?"

"On a scale of 1 - 10, how interesting is your job compare to what other kinds of warriors do?"

Turns out I misheard "lawyer" as "warrior". Ha!
