the good and the bad

Good: Confirmation that I have my friend's apartment for the holidays, for free, by myself in London UK! WOOHOOOOOO!!!!

Bad: I'm not going to have any money. Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

Well, I'll have enough but man it's going to be super tight, let me tell you. And frankly, I just don't care. How bad is that.

Some mention was made of me seeing the Brit on New Years, but there's a few stipulations attached to that on my part (as in, he's working, which is fine, I'll go to work with him, which I can do, but I am NOT and I repeat NOT going to be able to get back to my apartment in West London from the area he's working in unless he drives me, which at 4 am he's not going to want to do. So I have to stay with him. He tells me that's just dandy. We'll see what happens on the cold foot front.

Debts, expenses, my property taxes have gone up considerably in the past year, $150 a month up and it's pissing me off. The bank made a calculation error last year, and they're making me pay for it. Nice. I need this right now. Yep. Really.

I don't see my salary going up, I didn't get profit sharing this year (and we made profit, but up here in Canada, not in the US, so we are being made to suffer....NIIIIICE!)

Sigh.

Money. I shouldn't be going away, and I just don't give a shit.

Maybe all this will make it easier to sell your house and move over there... fuck taxes, they're horrible and who needs 'em anyways??

*crossing fingers you get a surprise $$ xmas bonus*

Oooh this trip sounds awesome. I'm sure it will all work out very well. You'll really regret it if you don't go, it sounds like. Not having enough money can be a way of life, don't let it interrupt your fun! :D

TD - I want out of my house, but I need to do a couple things first and naturally, those require money. Yeha. Sweet. And there will be no Xmas bonus, I guarantee. No nada. We didn't get our wages rolled back, that's out bonus. Our colleagues south of the border did (however, a manager at my level makes about 30% more down there then I do, so fuck em!)

Yeah free place in London. WOOHOOO!

AIC (sorry I need to shorten it LOL!) - yeah I know I'll regret it if I don't go. Stranger things have happened but maybe I'll get my first New Year's kiss in about engh...10 years? Yeah. That would be nice. I really don't ask for much.
