where am I: Work
Tags: ,
I have $.028 in the bank until I get paid tomorrow. I am NOT in any kind of financial state to travel. I do not have a functioning car. It's the middle of bleeping WINTER. And I? Am a grownup.

But sadfhdsadhf.


See the part that says "Open to the public", and the other part that says "Admission is FREE"? Um, yeah. I just can't afford to GET there.

how far away from your place is it?

According to Mapquest, it's about 560 miles/900 km.

It's not as bad as you'd think. Cheaper than the train, for sure (which is the way I'd LIKE to go, actually).

well, i say indulge yourself. go and meet up with fangirls and stalk ask paul for an autograph. in my book those are the best experiences ever.

I'm not such an autograph person--I'd more likely sit and listen and sneak out quietly (even though I'm not really quiet, wtf?). The fangirl stuff, yes, definitely.

And oh, gods, what would I WEAR?

::rolls eyes:: well, if you're gonna be all quiet and sneaky it doesn't really matter what you wear, eh? ::grins:: unless you wanna make a statement beyond being quiet and sneaky. ::winks::

Aww! Can you get there on a bus or something? Assuming you had more than 0.28?

Probably, but there's the car that needs fixing and the bills that need paying and I want to visit patchfire and songdog and. And.

But gah. This is ACADEMIC. I could probably get liek, CEUs or something. Well, okay, maybe not CEUS, but.


not that i've completely ruled things out, mind you, but still

Well, what vsee said, pretty much. It might be the sort of thing you should get to if you can, because it's not like you're blowing money to go drinking with frat boys or something. I mean, depending on how far away and expensive it IS to get to, obviously, but it seems like the sort of thing you might really regret not doing.

Uh,just how expensive would this trip be? Is this the kind of emergency that ye olde credit carde can take care of? I am alll for doing the right thing and not racking up debt, but this is a unique experience, not some totally random, silly indulgence. And yes, I am being serious. :) I am assuming maybe the car is a lost cause for the moment, but you can take a bus or train.

I don't use credit cards, so that's out.

Car is a definitely lost cause at the moment. Bus is an option, but it's a long trip. Train is difficult to access. I will definitely think about it, though.

I thought you were in Massachusetts. *is so confused*

You should go to this thing!

Send me your email address (mine's on my userinfo, visible to friends).

Yep, I'm in Massachusetts. It's 900 miles from Toronto. :)

Also, email sent.

Nos and I are going! I will take notes? And video, if allowed? :D?
There's no poopin' on the bus y'know...

Ah, there you go! I was going to say, if I had the means to record it I'd pop in and do so...but I don't, lol! Meres to the rescue though! \o/

You are GOING? I should go. I really should. *angsts*

Well, if you CAN... should might be another matter. I mean, yeah, Paul, but 900km to T.O. for a two hour thing? And your car is broken?

I say good luck, though! *g*

Well, there's the fangirl aspect, and I'd spend a couple of days. And it is Toronto, not like I'd be going to some small town with just a hotel and a gas station, y'know?

OMG I don't envy you for being in the situation where you're trying to resist that :P

I'm actually here to say again how much I loved the wonderful snarky dsss story I got from you. And I'm friending you, hope that's ok *s* (I should probably have done that around, say, Christmas, but er...RL makes me sporadic in LJ right now? /o\)
