Bob Geldof’s worst nightmare

Tomorrow will be the longest Monday imaginable for me and a day I’ll probably never forget. The day will start at 3.30 am when my taxi picks me up for the ride to Sydney airport.

I then fly back to Auckland and have a 5 hour wait at the airport before boarding my flight at 17.00 NZ time across the Pacific Ocean to the States. After picking up my hire car around 13.00 Pacific Time US (still on Monday and 4 hours before I left NZ?!) I then plan to drive to Joshua Tree National Park where I will find a motel and probably collapse in a heap.

Because of the time differences and crossing the international date line Monday will be roughly a 40 hour day. So the best thing I can do now is have an early night and not think too hard about Monday 28th April.
