Ghost Town movie review

This movie is billed as a romantic comedy. There definitely is romance there, there definitely is comedy there, just not totally hilarious, or totally romantic. It's more British humor, and dealing with death issues as well. It's a good movie, just not entirely what I was expecting. I would say see this as a Matinee.

Travel question

This is not a sarcastic question, I really would like to know..because I am too much of a planner myself and don't see how I personally could afford doing trips like this, so I am envious/admiring of the people who can. As a note, I get paid once a month, so I have to allot money to certain things (for example, some of my play money is going towards any friend's birthday between april 14th and may 14th, anniversary, specific trips planned, mother's day, etc.).

How do you plan for a spontaneous vacation? Does one just spend the play money you have for that paycheck, and then scramble for plane tickets? Do you just say let's go next weekend no matter what's going on, or do you plan out farther in advance like that?

Really, I really do want to know...because I am such a planner it's hard for me to see it other ways sometimes...
