08:21 pm - Eye won two beer par to vit, New York, New York
For the particular attention of the good folk of New York City and (very close) surrounding areas.

I will be arriving in JFK terminal 7 at 13:05 on Tuesday 15th July and spending a little time that day in New York City before leaving on a Greyhound coach that day. Similarly, I will be arriving back in New York City on Tuesday 22nd July and spending some time there before travelling to JFK7 to catch an 11pm flight out. Would any NYC people be interested in, and have the time available to, spend a little time with me on either of those days? I very much doubt that I will get much chance to catch up with you in the near future except during these little transfers. Tuesdays may well be tricky, but I'd hate to miss the chance if you have a gap in your schedule.

In a related matter, would anyone be able to help me purchase a Greyhound coach ticket online by using a US credit card based at a US address? Ideally it would be someone who I could meet up with on the Tuesday and pick up the tickets from in person, but if no such person exists then we can work out some other solution ("Will Call" ticketing, if it's available - or, at a pinch, sending the tickets through some guaranteed service.) I would transfer you funds to cover all appropriate costs in advance by PayPal or somesuch. Many thanks in advance for your help!

Unrelated matter for the 99.83% of the world who don't live close to NYC: I imagine at least a third of you would be amused by current_affairs, a community for Real Politician Slash. Oh my.
Current Mood: Tuesday after next - panic!

I'm a bit too far from the city to be considered close, let alone very close, so alas my help would be rather useless. Good luck with the real ;-) New Yorkers, though!

I will be in New York on Tuesday, 22 July and Wednesday, 23 July! We should get together and do something (although I think on the 22nd I may actually be visiting colleges... the 23rd I'm there, though).

Great idea! I'd love to and I hope we can work something out in Orlando.

Squick! Squick! I can easily stand the non-consensual and brutal relationshop between Dumbledore and Harry but shudder at a dodgy comment concerning Mr Blair and Mr Campbell in the car together. And I will never look at Mr Putin the same way again. Also, how come, with all those orgies going on, no one mentioned Mr Mandelson? Squick! Squick!

Hee! Everyone has something which squicks them. :-)

Well, maybe not everyone, though I don't claim to be one who doesn't. Mine tend to be more graphical than verbal.

Mandelson is so last year, man...

Hey Chris, I remember you once mentioning a new cheap flight company in London, but I forget the name and I can't find the entry... could you please refresh my memory... Thanks! Maybe I'll be able to use it to fly to MSO!

New cheap flight company? Hmm - there are a few. :-/

The best suggestion I have for you is that Easyjet fly between Amsterdam and Liverpool five times a day, plus offer a cheap bus service (£ 2, I think) between Liverpool and Manchester. You're looking at a price for a return flight of somewhere around €100-ish including taxes.

Ljubljana? What the heck are you doing there? No, I can guess... ;-)

Ljubljana doesn't seem to be mentioned at all in the usual compendium, so I think cheap flights from there are going to be tricky - either that, or Slovenian normal flight prices might not be very high compared to Western European ones. I'm half-tempted to suggest that you go to somewhere like Trieste in eastern Italy or Graz in Austria and Ryanair it back home, but I have a suspicion that that way madness lies. Easyjet go to Prague and Athens but nowhere in between.

Home? Bad choice of wording. :-)

heh, hopefully eventually Ljubljana will be home, but not for a while. Yeah, I was planning to do the Trieste or Vienna thing. Anyway, for Sweden to Ljubljana, I think I'm just going to bite the bullet and pay a decently expensive fare... something over 400 EUR.
