A Call For Help!

No, despite your concerns, the call for help is not to locate The Orracle. I'm OK. Busy at work - new CIO (again) and therefore the usual changes and new order that creates a little extra work...and we were busy before all of that!

A while ago, I asked for help. Financial help. I wanted to go to Disney yet this summer (free dining plan) along with the cruise in November still. Well, depspite all better financial judgement and 2 fortune cookies advising me to save my money, we are booked and pretty much paid up on both trips. Now, my dead van is in the driveway since I cannot afford the new tranny it needs (not that kind of tranny, Al). More to come on the van's fate...

Now I am pressed one more time to ask my faithful readers, both of you, for help. I love to travel. I love airplanes. I REALLY love first class.

I was reading on usatoday about the first ever A380-800 flight to JFK on Emirates. So, I did a little research on the booking. This is what it looks like to leave a day after my birthday (can't leave on the 8th since we get back from our cruise on the 8th).

Seriously, if you plan to fly 12-14 hours being a bigger guy, you need some space. I figure with the extra amenities of first class on this plane, I should be OK.
Well, you have your orders. Let me know if you need my Paypal account to deposit your donation to the "Send The Orracle To Dubai In First Class" fund. I'll let you know when I reach the $14,635.47 goal.

Both your faithful readers huh. I've already blown all my spare cash on my own travels this summer. Guess Stormy will have to kick in if you're going to go. I'm reasonably sure she's got much more than this in her slush fund. I'd go ahead and book the flight on that assumption.

If i had all this extra money lying around i'd be taking my own vacation tyvm or better yet buying a house.

Interesting.... If I had as many vacations as you, I'd HAVE to go to work, just to get away from the vacations!
