In Zombie Mode at the moment. I spent the morning and early part of the afternoon visiting travel sites online and trying to find the best deal for a hotel and flight for Comic-Con in San Diego. No sleep last night and everything started jumbling together at a certain point, if you know what I mean. Passed out somewhere around 2 p.m. and woke up four hours later. That was half-hour ago and I still don’t feel “all awake yet” so bear with me, Gentle Reader. I am trying to sort out things in my muzzy head.
I have several flight options–some better than others–and I am not too worrited about that. The sticking point is there doesn’t appear to be a room to be had for July 11-July 16 at a hotel that is on the Comic-Con Shuttle route and within my budget. Benny found a deal with Hotels.com for a place about 10 miles away from the San Diego Convention Center that would save close to $500 off normal hotel rates.
Now I need to know how much a twice-daily cab ride from this Best Western Plus Otay Valley Hotel to SDCC and to and from the airport will cost. Will it eat up what I’d save? Will my replacement PayPal debit card arrive in time for me to get this deal? Should Benny go ahead and transfer the funds that have been donated thus far to our bank account, which would take three or four business days? Will that be too late to buy a ticket and make a deposit on the hotel?
Decisions,, decisions. I know I can get in. But will I ever really get there? I feel as if the prize is just beyond my reach. Are my nerves getting to me? Would I benefit from a some restful, restorative sleep? As the folks in South Dakota used to say, “You betcha.”
