swtjemz is going to laugh at me for this, but...

HOLY FREAKING COW! What happened to airfare to Japan?!? I thought the obnoxious amount we paid last year was horrible. Now I'm looking at a price of nearly a grand as being "good". I was expecting to pay about $300 less than that! And flights to Kansai are a good deal worse. :P

At this rate, the November trip may get put on hold.

Was going to post thoughts on UM 18, but unfortunately they're written up on the other laptop, and I don't feel like plugging it in. Transitions are not a lot of fun.

Really hoping I don't have to go out of town this weekend for a memorial service. I could really stand the time at home to clean things up and get my life more organized. And sleep some. :P

A friend in Australia says cows go for about $100 each so it's actually three moo-cows. Though I hear Kobe cows are really expensive, as much as $8000, and just a steak goes for $300. We only saw the sheep, but one must wonder if Dan/Ultra Seven got into the Kobe beef business. Might look like a normal rancher but actually filthy rich! All the other Ultras seemed to be well-to-do. Hm, and maybe then the cuts of Kobe beef go to Ace's restaurant? Or do you think he's just head chef there? Moo!

I take it that's a bad sign for all of us travelers. So earning United points is the way to go? Might mean I turn to that card instead of the Southwest one. Keep meaning to cancel one, esp now that I'm not in RI and won't be flying Southwest regularly.
