Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Price-A-Dent Obama Imitating Louis The Fifteenth: A Vacation Cost Analysis

At 60 to 100 million for a journey to Africa, we need a president that knows how to stay home. New Mexico is much cheaper, especiaLLy if we can get him to drive his own vehicle. Chevy Chase managed to take a vacation and only occasionaLLy did people die. Typing 'Wallyworld' into my GPS app .... ooooh, got a place in Australia:

    Jans Wallyworld
    People Mova
    9,133 miles away
    Wallaroo South Australia

(Apple Maps unable to give me directions)

.... this could get expen$ive

[Thought Bubbly: Try Hotels.Com]

I found several package deals for around $10,000 for two adults and two children. I am not sure how many rooms and airline seats are needed for Secret Service people, plus rental cars are not factored in. 

Further investigation reveals that Jans Wallyworld is a taxi service. No need for rental cars.

You know all the rest of us are using hotel points and Skymiles and Expedia and even flying the cheapest times of the day. But don't forget he needs extra space and a room for his mother-in-law.

60 to 100 million seems a little on the expensive side but I think he has to travel first class or it looks bad.

fmcgmccllc: I miss my mother-in-law, she was fun, jovial and warm-hearted. When Tamie and I were at the zoo there was a display where you could reach out and touch a veRy large dinosaur fossil. At first my wife seemed hesitant to reach out and touch it, but then after she did, she told me that when she was a child her mother told her that dinosaurs were fake.

Rob: I think with numbers that large it should be caLLed traveling zeroth class, with 100 million having 8 zeros. I am not even sure if my recent vacation cost $1,000 - which is only 3 zeros. I realize his vacation wiLL be maybe twice as long as our New Mexican trip, but 8 - 3 = 5, so 100,000 TIMES as much. Oh, to think and complain logarithmically, that is the stuff of dreams. And the kicker is I am not sure if Obama actuaLLy pays anything for this trip out of his pocket, I am sure its completely the taxpayer.
