Not that I'm even sure I can afford either or both at this point (NEED JOB NOW), but:

Return flight to San Diego for SDCC, including taxes: $454.56 CAD

Return flight to Toronto for Dexcon, including (my god) taxes: $663.95 CAD

*choking noise*

Of course that's still almost two hundred bucks cheaper than Toronto cost me last year.

Incidentally, and note that this is pie-in-the-sky questioning, who out there is as foolish as I and still hotel-unbooked for Comic-Con?

Have now applied to roughly six hundred jobs (read: ~47?) and have heard back from... um. Three. Am starting to feel down on myself or something. o.O

Upside: program interview for school went very, very well, I think. The department chair offered to write me a pre-req override right there on the spot so I could get started with the shit-courses on-line over the summer. I'm taking this as a good sign. At least in a week or two I'll know for sure about school this September, which is something.

ETA: Why is nobody I know IRL having baby girls? My cousin's third kid (conceived in the vain hopes of finally producing a girl) is slated to be a boy, which really if you think about it was kind of a lost cause to start with, with two boys already. Mainly I want an excuse to give somebody other than myself a copy of Blueberry Girl and it's making me cranky. :)

I'm surprised I haven't asked this in as long as I've known you, but what is your major?

My BA was English Lit/History. Now I'm looking at library studies.

I've been asking that question for three years. I'm starting to get suspicious in the way that only a hardcore sci-fi fan can. :3

I was told by an EnviroSci prof once that more boys=slower population growth. Conspiracy, yes/no?

Re: Job
*hugs*

Bryson has probably put in more than that and is still looking for something that will hire him. Everyone seems to be in the same boat right now and it has nothing to do with your skills or expertise - there just aren't enough jobs for everyone.

I have a comic con ticket, but no hotel yet. We are going to look for one either by Sea World or out in La Mesa area (which is where we stayed with a friend last year). It was perfectly fine driving in every day for us (but that was because we had a car).

Ah, yes. A car would help. :)

Do you realise there's been no baby girls born in the vacinity of our family since *I* was born? It's like a curse. Curse of baby boys o_O
