I decided not to go- thanks for all of the advice, the bikini car wash certainly was a creative idea. The money was the main issue, and the bad timing- I'm doing the Philadelphia marathon on Nov. 20 and should be focused on that and not on playing in a soccer tournament (read: getting wasted and hooking up with hot Icelandic men) in Reykjavik. I'll have to save Iceland for another time, when I'd be able to do more than soccer playing and nightclubbing. So cheers to me for making the boring and responsible decision for once in my life.
Aside from that, today was awful. I had to give a presentation to my lab group and I bombed so badly that I ended up crying in the work bathroom afterwards. I am the worst presentation giver EVER . I need to take a class in public speaking or something. Either that or become a mime, then I could just act out all of my data instead of having to explain it.
