I wanna take a trip.
I know what you're thinking. "Damn, this bitch just got back from a trip!" And yes, that may be true, but I need another one. I can't really afford this jet-setting lifestyle that I yearn for, but this trip is actually something I need to do to SAVE money. Kinda.
Here's the deal. As a native Texan, I generally fly Southwest Airlines. I know it has a reputation as the Fat-Haters Airline, but so far I've never had any trouble with them (besides having to suck-it-in for 3 hours), so I still use them pretty much exclusively. That means I'm also a member of their Rapid Rewards program, which means after eight round trips tickets, you get one free. Well, finally, I'm up to seven. SO...I need another credit. But I have to get it before 6/18/09 or else I'm screwed.
So like...the "respectful" thing to do would be just to take another short weekend trip home. But I dunno, those tickets are kinda pricey and I'm bored of the whole Las Vegas to Houston to Las Vegas thing. Need something new, baby. Plus, they have some pretty cheap-o flight options to places like California, Utah or Arizona. I know there's lots to do in places like those, but I don't really know anyone there, so I dunno.
I'm not really sure how the logistics would work. I mean, I'm not really one to go venture out to a strange new city all by my lonesome. On the other hand, I don't wanna have to take any days off work, so going with Jeff would mean him missing like half a paycheck to go with me. OH CONUNDRUM! I wish I had friends in this god-forsaken town who weren't attached at the hip to their spouse and kids. Sometimes I think I'm the only single 30something left in the world.
What do you guys think? Should I just go home? Know of anything fun and cheap and quick to do in CA, UT, or AZ? Should I just let my inner cheapskate die and give up on the chance of a free flight? WWJD?
