FC or bust?

I'm wondering if I should skip FC this year.

It's going to cost about $400 for the hotel room, and at least $100 in gas.  And even if I cheap out and bring my own food, that's going to cost a good $50-100 more.

And what will I end up doing at FC?  Sitting behind a table all day, selling art that nobody is interested in and comics that everyone already has.  The people who I really wanted to spend time with aren't going to be there.  Without my SO  there to motivate me to do stuff, I'll just end up sitting in my hotel room the rest of the con.  And I'll probably get sick, like I do every year.

 

Or I could be just as bored and lonely at home, use that $600 to pay the property taxes, and save up my vacation time at work.

 

Anybody want a table in the dealer's room?

Pretty much what I'm doing this year. I have credit cards that need a sound beating, and I aim to give them one by saving everything I can.

Save up your vacation time for what?

Emergencies (we don't get paid sick time off), in case I get laid off or quit (they have to pay me for any vacation time I have left, right now that's about half a paycheck), or to take a longer vacation in the future (I get 5 paid vacation days per year, and can accumulate up to 15).

Jesus shit a brick. No paid sick time, 5 vacation days a year? That'd get the CEO packed off to Guantanamo Bay around here. My commiserations.
