Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.

I'm sort of freaking out right now. I have so much going on. I have all kinds of papers due this week. We're doing a one-week non-stop (170 hour) prayer meeting at church, and I really ought to cover some of the time slots. Plus I would really like to find a job so that Diana can come back home with the kids, which she really really wants. I am just feeling a bit overwhelmed right now. And I have to figure out how to pay for all these classes (and the rest of the books I need... and the rest of our bills... you know how it goes).

And on top of it all, I have this crazy feeling like I really ought to go to SBL in San Diego in a few weeks. It seems absurd, but, I don't know. I'll gladly take donations. Second best would be advice on how to get really good deals to make it happen.

Check out www.spiritair.com for deals on airline tickets. Michael uses them all the time.

Jake,
Thanks for the info.

Chris,
Yeah, I've been thinking about it a lot the past few days. My classes are even cancled because my professors are going, so gee, seems like I should go. If not, maybe I'll punt and go to a regional conference instead.
