I'd Run Away
Work is breathing down my neck to book off vacation days. I have nine days remaining before October 15th. Two or three of those are set aside for going to NYC/All Tomorrow’s Parties in September, though I wish they’d at least post the dates for the festival if not the lineup. Either way, I figure it to be a Friday-Saturday-Sunday affair, so that’d be three days off I’d need to reserve (the Thursday, Friday and Monday, at least). That leaves me approximately one week to play with. I’m currently eyeing the last week of June (23 to 27) though the preceding weekend I would not be able to get away because of the Wilco show on Friday and Andrea and Bryan’s wedding on Saturday. Not that I could really afford to go away for a full eight or nine days or whatever. I have to check if we are taking Canada Day on the 30th of June (the Monday), in which case I could sneak an extra day off onto the stretch. The other option is the following week, which would only cost me four days (on account of Canada Day). Downside, everyone would be travelling that week and transportation might be pricier. I don’t know. This is all to say nothing of the fact that I have no idea where to go or what to do. Suggestions?
