So many cheap places to visit

If you're dreaming of going to Europe, the SAS sale today is awesome ... in honor of the 100th anniversary of flight all of their previous sale destinations are on sale again. Only $299 (plus tax) from Seattle.

"Travelers will be able to fly to any of the 16 previously posted sale destinations, which include Copenhagen, Stockolm, Oslo, Helsinki, Stavanger, London, Amsterdam, Gothenburg, Manchester, Warsaw, Madrid, Geneva, Riga, Vilnius, Zurich and Bergen. Taxes and fees are additional. Tickets must be purchased today, December 17, by 11:59 p.m. PST. Depart January 5 through March 27 and return by March 29. A Saturday night stay is required. The maximum stay is 30 days."

Too bad I'm already so far in debt this month, and that I don't have a whole bunch of vacation sitting around to use. It would be nice to go ... at least I get to look at that cute little SAS calendar online!

You guys are funny

Man, two weeks with nary a comment, then you get all wiggy when I make a post about travelling! Maybe I should really post FOR my "audience" rather than posting ABOUT me. And hey, I have a great restaurant review up on seattle_dining, if you want to read that. I should warn you that it will make you hungry.

Er ... on with the stuff that everyone apparently finds so dull: Collapse )I, seemingly alone of my friends, will not be heading to the Cinerama any time soon. It's not like the movie is going to change if I wait a week or two to see it anyway, or as if I'm missing out on the opportunity to see it with a bunch of my friends (that would have been nice but offers were not forthcoming, and apparently the people at work are already off on vacation and too busy to be bothered organizing something like this). I guess I would have enjoyed the full day thing quite a bit (mmm, free pizza!), but the lady was not with me and I had no such luck. Ah well.

One for you and ... that would be three for me, huh? Maybe I should put something away ...

It's past time for Christmas presents to be mailed, and our gifts are still looking mighty thin and mighty unmailed. This led us to skip the movie tonight in favor of a wrapping and packing extravaganza, which led to the conclusion that we did not have enough presents yet. "Thanks for the new car, mom, I hope you like the coasters we got you ... not to mention the roasted peanuts." So off we went to the U-District Tower Records, where I found myself walking around with four CDs I wanted and only one that was a gift. Back I went with all four. I'll come back when I've got my KEXP member card with me so I can get my discount. Yesterday we went to a bookstore, and I had somewhat more success there , picking up only one item for me (since it was independent Bailey Coy I didn't mind paying full price). The book in question is "The Years of Rice and Salt," an alternative history that posits that Western civilization was wiped out during the black plague (a very interesting concept, especially after listening to people talk about why Western civilization was superior on Sunday as if it was actually true). With any luck I can get the person I bought one of the books for to lend it to me later ... I didn't even know that author had anything new out!

Hmm, now I can try one of those exquisite chocolates sallysimpleton picked up for me in New York ... I can't wait!
