i really don't feel like working today, so i thought i'd drop by for a little extraearlyafternoonbloggersdelight.
(that's me checking my list of missing passengers and wondering if there's any ketchup left in the fridge for dressing up my leftover lunch/veggie burger.)
it's probably not a big deal that i don't feel like running on my wheel today because i get the feeling this place is going to be for sale on ebay soon. the airlines are all going hog wild since oil prices are up (again). that means they can all raise their already ridculously high fuel surcharges (again). lufthansa tops the list right now at $180 for a roundtrip ticket from the US to Europe via Frankfurt. that doesn't include any of the other $100-something in taxes they add on or the actual cost of the ticket, which often is now a mere fraction of the taxes and fuel surcharges.
only way to avoid those nasty fuel surcharges is to opt for the engine seat. but really- all that noise and soot?
despite the fact that people are finally flying as much/more than pre 9/11, this extra money the airlines are raking in seems to be going to the great big warehouse in the sky with all the lost luggage and onceuponatimeairlinemealservice- does not compute, does not compute. clearly there are just too many airlines being bailed out too many times with government money. i say cut 'em loose and let's see who is left after the dust settles.
so back to my original point, we're probably not long for the world at this point, which quite honestly is fine by me. i'd love to collect unemployment for a while and tear through school as quickly as possible.
big money no whammies, papa's looking for a pink slip!
alrighty- work-related ranting over. file it all under de-funct:
