More proof that the good times are over ...

Airfare from here to Toronto is now over $700. I was contemplating an excursion in November to go to a concert (and, yes, I know that is crazy, but Eric Bogle doesn't tour much in North America). But, ouch, that's a significant chunk of change. Yeah, I could almost certainly use miles if I want to go badly enough, but I had other things in mind for my miles.

Things I Want to Believe Against All Evidence

1) I am reasonably sure that now, in the 21st century, we are supposed to have teleportation.

2) You are supposed to need less sleep as you get older. I am waiting.

3) I will still function perfectly well if I go to a concert an hour's drive from home on a weeknight.

I know that none of these are actually true. Which is why I am not at the Birchmere listening to Orchestra Baobab tonight.

I don't have to be happy about that.
