wherein I ramble a bit.

longtime readers of this journal may recall that I took a vacation in spring of 2007 to visit my friend Tuffet and visit the city of Los Angeles. I had a blast, and I left vowing to return again.

Well, as it turns out, the milage I accrued on Midwest Airlines is going to expire shortly unless I do something with my account in very short order. And thus I find myself pining and moping and otherwise acting like a mooncalf and imagining that I can take another vacation to LA before the end of May. Midwest airlines has even gone so far as to offer a $225 round trip ticket to anywhere they fly to get me to go somewhere, but sadly, with my part-time job, even that seems a tall order. I estimate that, given my 2007 trip wound up running me about $800 all told, a trip this time would clock in at closer to a grand. I really wish I could budget and/or justify that, but I really don't see how I can. Unless I can figure out some way to claim it as a business expense, I suppose.

I do have a sole proprietorship devoted currently to video editing, but also established with the intention of dialect coaching. Any accounting geniuses out there want to help me figure out how to report the trip as a deductible business expense? Please? I really wanna go to Disneyland and Tiki-Ti and hang out with Tuffet again.
