Hey kids -

So here is my latest dilemma. I want to come to NYC for the party but am not sure I can afford it mentally, physically or fiscally. Here are the pros and cons:

PROS

- I could meet a whole bunch of robots all at once. WOOT!

- I heart NYC and have been wanting to visit for ages.

- All I do is work and workoutotherwise.

- The loungey bar place looks fun!

- The next month of weekends lays out as follows: Apr 1 - Paris, Apr 8 - London, Apr 15 - Montreal. It would be so cool to start that trend off with Mar 25 - NYC! True jet setter style, I would be so comso!

- I could head down with Adina and have both a girls weekend and a happyrobot meetup all in one. WOW.

- The dude has a party that wknd anyway so I would be on my own while he celebrated and recuperated.

- I could potentially work from home on the Monday.

- I have airline points saved up for this very thing!

CONS

- I could find myself completely wiped out financially if I go NYC, London, Paris back to back (just the airport to and fro will cost me a bucketload - plus these cities represent a shopaholic dream come true!)

- I am getting old and don't recover from travelling as well as I used to. Even short trips. This month of travel could end me.

- The only flight back I could find on points is at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday morning. Is it worth using all those points for only 24 hours in NYC?

- I need to find accomodations.

- I will be stressed out at work and tired from travelling.

- And anxious. I get very anxious when I have no down time.

- I am no fun when I am anxious.

Thoughts? Consolations? Justifications? Irrational rationalizations?
