Oh, it's the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac kind of naming convention.

I'm gonna be down around $50k by the time I'm done with my course. I know that feel.

I've personally always wanted to go to Nashville. Montgomery and Atlanta are both very nice cities as well (may be a little farther than you want to travel though)

Nashville - been there done that got the tshirt (never going back to tennessee ever*. long story)

I have a *****y "friend" in Atlanta that i'd be required to see if we went there, and even with offering free plane tickets to the wedding she still didn't come, so f her.

Montgomery? never considered that one. i'll look into it.

* - except maybe to get fried chicken from Gus's, some ribs from the Bar-B-Q Shop, and banana cream pie from McEwen's and get the hell out.

Orlando's not a bad choice.

They have Seaworld, Disney, and Putt-Putt Golfing.

UGH.

I lived in Orlando for 1 year. I will NEVER go back.

I imagine hell to be very much like driving in Orlando, just with more lava and smoke.

Disney is my favorite place ever, but if i'm going, i'll want more than a weekend, and time to plan to find deals.

I (by an amazing stroke of luck) was down there during Sandy. Left Saturday before, arrived Saturday after.

I went there for Universal. Did a night of Halloween Horror Nights and 3 days at Universal (2 at Islands of Adventure, 1 at regular park) then spent 2 nights exploring (bar crawling) City Walk. Was a lot of fun.

One of my best friends had just gotten married and I spent a day with him and his new wife there. They were staying just outside Disney and said they loved it there too.

Well I had a good time being there for only a week, and you can get cheap flights there. So for a 1 week escape, not that bad.

Also, I was curious if anyone would pick up on the reference when I suggested Orlando. Although it's honestly a long shot.

Also I'm pretty sure work is hell bent on preventing me from accomplishing work today. Every time I go to a database that I need info from, it's down or crashes.

I'd second Orlando, tons to for a weekend.

If you had 3 or 4 days, I'd say fly to Miami, rent a car and go to the Keys.

It's true everywhere you go. London is a terrific place to go sight-seeing and whatnot, but everyone who lives there will tell you what a massive ****hole it is.

St. Louis?
St. Louis and Nashville are two of my favorite US cities to just kick back and relax in (but you're lived Tennessee, so scratch Nashville )

Or New Orleans if you're looking for something a bit more lively?

you may be joking, i had my eyes shut the whole time.

i hate roller coasters, heights, etc, but the gf dragged me on a lot of them. as the space mountain ride started (while waiting on line i had drained like a 44 oz pepsi- not smart) i leaned over and said 'i ****ing hate you for this, ill never forgive you, better find a new boyfriend and a ride home you ****eating ***nugget.' the ride attendant looked shocked.

of course i apologized once we were safely on the ground
