Wealth is Double-Edged Sword
Recently I came into a little bit of money. It's not a lot, really, but my checking account has rarely seen amounts with 4 digits, so it seems like a lot to me. Unfortunately, most of it is accounted for: I'm going to do the responsible thing and put the majority of it toward my credit debt. Not a fun way to use it, but hey, I must have had fun using the credit card, right? Not that I even remember what I bought at this point.

A small part of the money will be spent on a plane ticket. Now listen carefully, because here is where the double-edge comes in. Two people, well actually a group of people and then another separate person have been hoping I would come visit. One is my friend Paul in England. I'd love to spend some time with him, and going to England post-breakup is a very important step for me, I think. My Austinites have also been clamouring. I haven't been back to Austin since I moved in August of 2001. I miss them, including monkeybro.

Now ususally, as I have stated in other posts, I can find a ticket to Heathrow for quite a bit less than one to Austin. Now that Southwest is flying out out of Philly (Phlying out of Philly?) I can get a ticket for $99 each way to Austin. The ticket into London was around $400. The trip to England also requires more time off work. I think, this time, Austin wins. I'm just afraid that Paul is going to be mad at me, or think that I don't really want to come. I just can't use up $400 of that money when I have debts to pay off. I hope he understands.

I'll still keep my eye on flights into the UK, I promise. And I'll start saving.
