Posted:Oh, I guess you're right. I mean, you do always have your brothers and me should you ever have the urge .... um, I think the plane tickets idea is the best one, then. Just ask for an open ended ticket ... this way you can take a "spontaneous" long weekend that wouldn't normally make sense financially --- but it would be wonderful and you'd have your mom to thank for it. Lovely.

Posted:Not a horrible idea BUT... there's nowhere I really want to fly in the $200 range.



Detroit?

Cleveland?

Little Rock?

I got no peeps there.

Is there something that would have made PDF/EJC things more fun?



I could always fall back on a digital camera I guess.

Posted:They could always get you a $200 voucher for a flight on a specific airline. That way, you could use it to discount whatever flight you chose on X airline.

I don't see how that benefits the U.S. economy at all.
