Fiorella is on her way home from Ontario now, or at least she should be. (She's actually writing this message on the 14th.) She flew up there on Sunday and will be home by 9:00 tonight, and she won't pay the airlines one red cent for the privilege.
Yes, thanks to the advice of Friend Marion, Fiorella hasn't paid for air travel for five years now. Those national RWA conferences, the New Jersey "Put Your Heart in a Book" conference, the trip to California--all free.
Well, not exactly free. Fio is loaded with benefit miles because everything, from a candy bar to an automobile down payment, goes on her charge card. Even the airline tickets are initially charged in order to get credit for them before being paid off by accumulated benefits.
Ah, the joys of modern living. A manageable blog and free flights. Can't beat them apples.
