Now can we please have some Detroit light rail?

I spent an obscene amount of money in the last couple of weeks. Or rather, my usual bills and student loan and credit card payments cleared at the same time as my federal and DC tax bills, plus I have travel coming up and had to make flight and airport shuttle reservations and so on. But it's a testament to my only having been in this job for six months that I'm still getting used to the fact that my bank account is fine. That's a nice feeling, plus Credit Card 1 will be paid off by the end of April and Credit Card 2 by October.

Unrelated but along the same theme: I'm going to a conference in San Francisco in November (13-17; this is your first warning, Bay Area LJers). I originally reserved a room at the conference hotel for an obscene rate, guessing that I would probably change to another place later if I felt I couldn't justify that. Checked back a few weeks later and rooms for the same dates at the same place had dropped $30/night, so I cancelled my original reservation and made another at the lower rate. That was maybe two weeks ago. I just checked again and the rates dropped an additional $50/night, so I just went through the same song and dance again. Now the rate is at the point where I think I'll probably keep it. Oh, travel budgets.

*makes a note in the calendar...via siri...not really*

If it's actually in the city, just stay with me!

Also...I hope you're traveling a few days before/after for play time!

It is in the city but I might bring the boyfriend as part of a mini-vacation. And yes, it will be for long enough to have leisure time. I'll keep you informed. :)

Is this for the Greenbuild conference? We might have a few people (myself included) there, but won't know till later.
