OKAY LADIES

so today I was thinking about this. and i realized: I am getting paid $300 to go to this Japanese camp thingy and schmooze with japanese high school girls for two weeks. so that would cover my trip!

so yeah. i dunno. I was talking to my friend matt about it today (asking him what the jeff I should do) and I realized it. but I dunoo... .I'm back and foruth on it all.

pros
- getting to see raven (DUH)
- meeting Danny, Julien (that's her name, right???), Greg, et al
- flying on a plane with anna + muffy = mass fun
- returning home WITH RAVEN = even MORE mass fun
- I have nothing to do this summer, this is structure
- I don't need $300 worth of clothes, I need EXPERIENCES
- I could say I'd been to Florida!
- WINN DIXIES GALORE!!!!!! finally, a chance to use my member rewards card!
- free peanuts
- we could totally stock up on girly magazines for the flight
- i'd get to see louie. and do final goodbyes etc if they even remember me, whoretards.
- EDIT: INFLIGHT MOVIES!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

cons
- $300 is a LOT of money
- I'd miss father's day and my dad's regatta
- It seems rather pointless to fly ALL THE WAY out there for just a few days
- 8 hour flight = looooooooooooooooooong
- my nose gets dried out on planes
- airplane food = nasty
- $300
- $300
- $300
- THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS MY GOD

EDIT: oh creeeepy. After I posted it, it totally read my entry and up popped an ad for hotels in Florida. BIG BROTHER AHHH

So, I just thought I'd post what's going on for me around the time we would be doing this.

I'm going to HG in Seattle on June 14; HG in Portland on June 15; Phantom Planet in Auburn on June 16; and Phantom Planet in Portland on June 17. The (minor?) problem this presents is that I would be in Portland the night before our potential flight. However, I don't think we are staying in Portland that night, so maybe I could stay at Reyna's that night and Emily & co. could pick me up from Reyna's and go to SeaTac the next morning?

Anyway, the bad thing about this is that I'd have to pack all of my stuff before the 14th and basically bring it with me to the HG/PP 4-day extravaganza. That kind of sucks, but not terrible, I guess, since I'd have to pack a couple of things for those four days anyway. These could just be combined.

Also, I may be moving between the 10th and the 14th. Which would make this a really packed couple of weeks. However, my mom and brother are really against this and suggest we wait until the end of the month, so we won't be in a rush. So, if I'm not moving on the 10th, that won't be a big worry.

The return flights look good.
Anyway, that's what's going on with me.
I love over-planning potential trips.

YAY FOR THE FLORIDAY TRIP!!!!!!!!

so I found a flight from Seattle to Orlando via Atlanta (we can visit Twigs' family!!!!!). The flight out would just have a stop there, the flight back, we'd have to change planes.

flight out:
Friday, June 18th.
flight #528, coach, Delta Airlines
leave Seattle: 11:45 am
arrive Orlando: 9:59 pm, (not ideal....)
total time: 7hrs, 14 minutes

return flight
Tuesday, June 22nd
Flight #834, coach, Delta Airlines
leave Orlando: 6:00 am (again, far from ideal)
arrive Atlanta: 7:21 am
- layover: 1 hour, 7 minutes -
Flight #835, Delta Airlines
leave Atlanta: 8:28 am
arrive Seattle: 10:34 am (time change..)
total time: 7hrs, 34 minutes.

$279 apiece.

ORRRR

same flight out, but:
return flight
Tuesday, June 22nd
Flight #541, coach, Delta Airlines
leave Orlando: 8:50 am
arrive Atlanta: 10:16 am
- layover: 1 hr, 20 minutes -
Flight #457, Delta Airlines
leave Atlanta: 11:36 am
arrive Seattle: 1:51 pm (again, time change. actual flight: 5hrs, 15 minutes)
total time: 8 hrs, 1 minute.

for the same price, we could leave Orlando a little later which would help a lot. we can survive an extra 13 minutes in Atlanta, eh?

EDIT: I'm on Delta's site right now, and their price for the EXACT same flight is $328. so it's definitely good to go through one of the cheap flight sites. the only problem will be overlapping the orlando-to-seattle flights with different ones in the opposite direction. if we can't call people from cheaptickets.com on the phone, we're screwed.
