Going to...


...from May 28-June 2.  It all came about spur-of-the-momently, and of course I went through my post-big-purchase panic attack, but the plane tickets have been purchased and I CANNOT WAIT TO GO.  Because of Rollum's flights to-and-fro London, and we actually had enough frequent flyer miles to get 2 tickets.  We only had to pay for taxes.   Now i just need to find a place to stay.  I've been doing lots of research, but i still haven't committed to anything yet.   The fancy hotels and resorts are way out of our price range, and it's been harder than i thought to find something affordable.

Tomorrow afternoon, I'm going to see Radiohead in Atlanta.  Carrie & I decided to stay overnight & do some shopping on Friday.  Woo woo!   I did "name your own price" on priceline and came up with a great deal.  then i got cocky and tried to "name my own price" for a 4-star barbados resort, but i was rejected.  and rejected once again for a 3-star hotel. 

i'm doing overtime at work, so it'll be nice to have this vacation to look forward to.
