I kind of doubt if I could afford it, I also wonder about taking my CPAP on a plane, if it breaks in transit it cost more than the con would to replace it.  :blink:

My knee, not too bad in that regard, but sometimes I forget and sit for too long and when I get up I almost fall over, which is what happened before Ep. III, I waited along with the rest of the theater for about four hours and when I got up to use the restroom and get something to drink before the movie, it was a WHOA moment, much like it was after seeing Harry Potter recently. But right now I have to take it easy for at least 24 hours after my shot.  :eek4:

Well I remember thinking that if enough folks come in early enough it might be worth looking into getting a suite.  That would give us space really stretch out.
