Thinking about FKO...

I got an email from Airmiles stating that I have a healthy number of Airmiles saved up. I shop at Safeway - which people tell me I am crazy for doing - but I get airmiles and they add up. I paid for my flight to FKO the first time I went using Airmiles. It worked out great cuz I managed to book my flight with hsifyppah and we shared a room.

Hmm. She'll should have a 2 month old sproglett by the time FKO rolls around. If she feels like going, that could be fun. BABIES! THEY ARE SO CUTE! Especially when I can play with them, hug 'em, squeeze 'em, and GIVE THEM BACK! Yeah. That is the best part.

If I booked with Airmiles, my flight will cost about $200 (a $450 savings, thanks muchly!) Two nights at the hotel would come to more! So then it would just be a matter of finding someone who wanted to share a room *and* was able to handle snoring (or be okay with wearing earplugs). Cuz. That's just the way she be.

*ponder*

I may have to do this thing. I really liked FKO when I went 2 years ago - it was awesome, and I have wanted to go back ever since. It's just that I really do have many bills to be paying off right now, and I'm supposed to be a good girl and buckle down.

Being a responsible adult sucks.

*eyes FKO website again*

We shall see, my pretty, we shall see.

I think that I flew was Jazzy when she was about that age. It actually went surprisingly well - no screaming, no fussing - and I actually flew with her again about 6 months later, and had another easy flight. So, I've had good experiences with babies on airplanes.

I wouldn't mind seeing you at FKO (much likelier I can go there than to Consonance next year), but my sense of humor may just be a little too hard to suppress.

And I am aware that you don't care for puns, right?

I'm not making any hard and fast plans - I'm just toying with the idea.

You are allowed to come to FKO without the happyfish, we1 would be glad to see you.

1. I am not affiliated with the concom of FKO, so cannot speak for them in any official capacity

Hee! It would just seem like there is something really important missing - in my brain, going to FKO or OVFF means getting up early and driving over to hsifyppah/s place to pick her up and head to the airport.

Someone else would need to keep me entertained then.

*eyes you*

We'd love to have you back! We kinda weren't counting on Brooke this year.

Aww, I'd love to come back. I really enjoyed FKO.

I would LOVE to go to FKO sometime. I've only ever been to Toronto once and it seemed like a nice place, although most of what I saw there was my host's apartment.

FKO is really great! They are lovely people and it's a really fun time!

And I want you here so bad! I need to get you and Phil in a circle together...

We have a place for you to stay if you are ever in Toronto other than at FKO. And we'd certainly get a filk circle together for you. Depends on the timing how much I'd be able to show you of Toronto; my work is erratic and mostly unpredictable.

I would love to come visit, with or without FKO. Just think of the mischief Phil and I could create if we were within close proximity of each other for any length of time. :-)

There are some technical hurdles involved. The biggest one is probably that I don't have a passport, which I'd need to fly to Toronto. If I knew far enough ahead of time I was coming, I'd probably get one; otherwise, I'd have to take the train from Buffalo or a bus from Detroit. (I don't drive, so that's not an option.)

You still need a passport to take a bus or train, Creede. Your country's decision not ours.

I've got a Washington state enhanced ID card, which acts as a passport card for purposes of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI - http://travel.state.gov/travel/cbpmc/cbpmc_2223.html). It's good for surface travel, so it would work for a bus or train -- but I'd still need the full on passport to travel by air. Our entire family has them, including the 3-year-old. It's how we got across the border to go to VCon.

At least that's true for flying from Seattle to Toronto, and for taking the train from Seattle to Vanouver. Whether I could take the train up to Vancouver and fly from there to Toronto with just my ID, or whether the folks at Windsor or the Peace Bridge crossing would know what it was, well, that I don't know.

I use a CPAP, so A) I have a white noise generator to cover snoring, and 2) I can pile pillows and blankets on my head to muffle the sound if I have to, and I can still breathe. So you can add me to your list of roomshare candidates if you'd like.

I will keep that in mind! Thanks for the offer!
