You better not expect anything unless you sent me at least three times as much as you said you would. The two of you together are only covering 1/3 of how much I've projected I'm going to need for admission and transportation alone--which DOESN'T include food.

So you’re implying you won’t be able to buy the DVD release rights? ^_^
Well, not 3 times, but still more ^^ Though it should be the other donor throwing in more, I’m just trying to do favors with no expectations of a return
except to be in when it somehow leads to huge profit making opportunities

Not unless you've got a few million that you're planning on giving me the power of attorney to.
That's something you need to hash out with the "other donor." She probably just asked you because she's cheap...as it is now, she's not even covering full cost of admission herself. I wouldn't accept pay rates that low for writing anything as long as a con report except as a BIG favor for a friend.

Yeah, I looked at the website and it was $55 for admission, I think? So yeah, she should kick in more, and I think I’m already putting in more than she is..
*tries to inflict guilt*

She's flying home today, I think. I doubt she'll notice if you try to "inflict guilt" here. You're gonna have to get more personal for it to be effective. *snorts*

Currently suffering jetlag. :) WANT TO SLEEP! WANT TO SLEEP! BUT CANNOT until at least 9pm. My flight out of Toronto was delayed by an hour and a half. (I should consider myself lucky considering how other flights faired.) Coming into Chicago, we were about ten feet from touching down when ZOOM! BACK UP INTO THE AIR WE WENT! and then we circled around at a relatively low height before landing again. What we basically got told was that there some some posisble conflict with something else on the runway. I suspect it was one of those possible annoying runway infractions. I won't be lucid until tomorrow.

Hell, seriously... even if you don't write it up, no big deal. :) As far as I'm concerned, it is a Christmas gift... One of the few on my FList of people that I will actually do. If there is free stuff involved and Gary wants it, he can have it. I just ask for free stuff generally with out the expectation of getting it and try to quit asking when I know the joke goes too far.
