Now further revised to "Unbearably tempted, know better, but might say 
'what the hell' and do it anyway!"
'Cos that's the way I pretty much run the rest of my life: under the "it 
seemed like a good idea at the time" philosophy.

Emailed my boss today and said, "how dead would you kill me if I was on 
a plane to Sydney in 2 weeks??"  I think at first she thought I was 

As for the rest of the logistics, there's definitely no further 
impending children, and the ones I have restrict their belting out of 
Oils tunes to the car or the house.  As for the finances, I guess we 
could eliminate grocery shopping for the year and go back to 
college-days menu & live on spaghetti, soup, chips, and beer.
