damn...i really wish i had even just a thousand bucks sitting around right now...if i could get to london, i could make more doing a drug study. even belfast has a place, i think...

$117 canadian, INCLUDING TAXES, to fly one-way from toronto, canada to any of the following cities in the UK in july:
shannon, dublin, glasgow, manchester, birmingham, belfast...

so...anybody in those cities want me to come visit? i figure i could just buy a ryanair ticket to leave the uk for a few months from now, to satisfy their entry requirements.

of course, this is currently a pipe dream, as i don't even have $117 to my name. but it's a thought.

anybody? anybody? i can whore myself out to make some money.
i make a mean mac-n-cheese

wow that's a hell of a deal...If I was in Canada right now I think I would be heading to the UK for sure!!

Good luck finding some money....It shouldn't be too hard to come up with $117!!

were this an actual possibility (god, i'm so broke)...i'd just find a rideshare or hitchhike to toronto :D

ahh, i've spent the past little while reading craigslist and thinking of any way i could make this possible...
