This is an update on this blog post…
So, I recently got called in to work an overnight job as a shomer… it’s a Jewish thing…
Well, I got paid $240 for doing it, meaning my airplane ticket, and the $85 for the dinner, has been paid.
This means I no longer need to beg for money. I’ll actually be able to afford most of it. Now I’m just looking for a roommate, outlined here at CFI’s forum:
Hi! I’m NateHevens. SurlyAmy awarded me a grant to WiS2. I’m looking for a roommate at the hotel.
Preferably someone who’s a really, really big fan of science, talking about science, politics (left-wing), making fun of creationists, and music… so… um… we’ll have shit to talk about… um… heh… *cough*
I’m planning on checking in in the morning on the 17th and checking out on the 19th with an evening flight. Also, I’m thinking I can afford the ticket to the dinner, so… there’s that.
I just need someone who can split the cost of the hotel with me. Let me know.
