Just think how dire your financial situation would if you'd actually been able to find a source for Cragganmore.

Alex K., you're either a very generous man, a savvy marketer, or both.

Nice try, but I only suck corporate c*ck. Not that you could afford my rate.

Hope to see you again at FNB!

LOL, I'll let all my currently enrolled co-workers and all my friends who worked at least 20-30 hours a week while having full time college schedules and were still able to make solid grades that they had no business doing actual work to get money they needed just because they had school. Hell, even though I never had a job while enrolled in college (went to school in small, dead college town, had no transportation until senior year, and all the campus jobs tended to be reserved for work study people), I had the sense to actually go out and earn money when I needed it, whether it be through selling items, relying on savings from summer jobs, doing odd one-time jobs I found in the classifieds, or taking advantage of the many, many quick money options available to college students (I once made $90 for taking a 2 hour psychology department survey, holy shit those people have money to throw around). What's even more baffling is that you live only a few hours away and could just as easily drive or take a train and probably save money without the hassle and cost of an airline ticket. I guess even driving is too much work for you. It's even more ironic that someone who actively participates in all sorts of threads about enjoying expensive luxury items can't even be bothered to put in the work required to afford these things. Sorry, but I have to agree with odoreater: this is just the saddest thread I've seen on SF. I hope this thread doesn't get hidden, because you really deserve to see people piling up on you for acting so ridiculously.

Btw, Connie, from Syracuse, you could have easily taken a bus, no? As a college student your time's not as valuable.

Kids today, so soft.

I haven't seen my dad for 15 years. He lives about several thousand miles from me and on the opposite side of the globe. He earns just enough to get by living so he can't afford to fly; and I'm a grad student, so I can't afford to fly. Brother can you spare me a dime?

My British grandparents always said the Irish were lazy.

I was wondering what C's historical heros would have thought of this letter? I can't imagine that C would make a good terrorist if you can't be bothered to get his hands dirty or take a grayhound.

I dunno, seems like a good Patrick Pearse type to me: lots of populist rhetoric and bravado, but then the Easter Rising comes and you see he doesn't care about imposing costs on other people, he just wants to look like a big shot by making a grand declaration on the steps of the Post Office after hundreds of others sacrificed themselves to stage that moment. But hey, acting Irish is really cool, even if you're a lifelong American with only Irish ancestry to claim! The kids seem to love that Flogging Molly band, and Irish car bombs are a blast to drink, especially when you do it on Saint Paddy's Day with a pint of green-dyed Guinness!

Well maybe since he's already got his ticket, a book of Sean O'Casey plays might be a better donation. The Plough and the Stars and Juno and the Paycock are two good tragedies that show why the "Rah Rah Ireland" gimmick is not only annoying, but dangerous.

Of course, hotel rooms in NYC generally run well above $140/night. Perhaps one of SF's NYC members can offer to host for two nights.

Perhaps some "discounted" rooms are available from generous older men on craigslist.

What about meals? We haven't even gotten to that.

Maybe beg on the subway. I'd certainly give a buck to any bum wearing a Harris tweed and a Fair Isle sweater vest.
