Last week, I got an email from her- her friend is currently living in Thailand, and she, her best friend, and her boyfriend are all going for 2 weeks in March and would me and Ivan like to go, too?
So work approved the time off, and I just gave orbitz my non-refundable hard-earned dollars. Looks like I'm committed now. It doesn't seem real yet, though I'm sure when I get my credit card bill, it will.
Unless my vacation accrual and savings accrual happen in a way I didn't previously observe, I will not be going to Burning Man this year. Which is fine- I got yer Temples and morning yoga right here. Plus, Burning Man doesn't usually have durians and transvestite prostitutes (no, I will not be bringing back either as souvenirs), much less elephants. Or elephant transvestite prostitutes.
Anyone that's been that has recommendations/ cautions, please comment.
