Expedia, my $#%#!

I say to never use Expedia to actually buy anything!! I was looking for a hotel in Indianapolis and the hotel that I wanted was full according to Expedia. I went to the hotel’s website, Marriott, and found there was no shortage of rooms and they were $20 cheaper a night. Now I expect Expedia to charge for their service but $20 a night is a little steep. I’ve also heard that you get the worst rooms through Expedia but I thought I would at least get a room. That’s my big whine for today. I know you can find deals on Expedia but I think that same deal is always someplace else too. I use Expedia to find a hotel or airline that has the service I need, then I go to that company’s website and make the reservation myself.
That problem aside, now I can think about coming home. I’ll be coming home after one of the longest stretches away (7 months). The funny thing is that my next trip should be home for Christmas so that could be one of the shortest times between trips.
A lot has changed for me in 7 months. I’m working more than ever. I’m busy chasing one woman, instead of many (and that works so much better to chase only one). And of course I just brought home Nello. He’s doing much better and grown so much he can’t get under the sofa anymore, and he doesn’t need to. He’s finally so comfortable that you give him a ball and as long it doesn’t get stuck under something he’ll play until he’s exhausted. Oh yeah, and my hair is a lot longer. That was part of reason for posting that photo of me yesterday. My hair is pretty long so I didn’t want to scare anyone who hadn’t seen me in long time. Well that’s about all for now. I have some serious Christmas shopping to do. If I can bring some gifts home now it will make my bags in December much lighter. I also want to get a new suit for Travis’s wedding. I haven’t bought a suit in a long time.

Hi, I was looking for some ideas on loan forgiveness for my website. This wasn’t exactly what I needed, but I am glad that I came to your blog anyway.
