rubbah and horns

The fates conspire against me, the angels merely laugh

I wanted to go to Toronto to meet some lj friends for Caribana.
          Then I discovered that airfare was ridiculous in both price and travel-time.
It looked like I wasn't going to go to Toronto.
          Then I discovered that Orbitz had Air Canada flights with super-cheap rates, and direct-flights that took less than 1.5 hours.
So it seemed I was going to go to Toronto!
          Then I discovered that every hotel room was sold-out, beyond my means, or too far away.
So there was no way I was going to go to Toronto.
          Then a kind soul and dear friend offered me floor space in her hotel room.
Suddenly, I was going to go to Toronto!
          It was now the next day, and the cheap flights were doubled and no longer cheap.
Suddenly, I wasn't going to go to Toronto.
          Then I hit up Air Canada's site and discovered that their prices hadn't yet changed.
So I was going to go to Toronto, right?
          Then I realized that everything had changed since 9/11 and I probably needed a passport-- but mine had expired.
So, dammit, I wasn't going to go to Toronto!
          Then I researched the web and discovered I could get by on a birth certificate and photo ID (and I *gasp* knew where my birth certificate was, and just received my new drivers license today)

Oh, shit-- I'm late!

* karaoke break *

I stopped by the theatre on the way to karaoke. They're having a tough time of the second show. I think they'll pull through, though. We always do. Eman looks amazing in his muttonchop sideburns. Jack may be, sadly, leaving the improv group.

They were finishing up as I got there, and E's taking tomorrow off, so he joined me for karaoke. I sang "Candy, Everybody Wants" (first time), "Maggie May," "Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)" (first time), and "Killing Me Softly."

I could tell E wanted to kiss me on the way out. It kills me. He's several million different kinds of wonderful, but I just couldn't do it.

* end karaoke break *

Now where was I? Oh, yeah, that's right-- I was going to go to Toronto!
          I went back to where I left off on the website, but it kept saying "What Happened? Website error-- try again in a little while (thank you for choosing livejournal airlines)"
So I wasn't going to go to Toronto.
          Then I started over.

I'm going to go to Toronto.

Heaven help us all.
