only four days until AZ

Posted on February 5, 2006. Filed under: Travelling |

Well, the bikini has been purchased and now I just have to try to fit 10 days worth of clothing and stuff into a carry-on suitcase. I have done it before, but it seems like a miracle every time it manages to get done. Even more of a miracle when I pack everything I took with me, plus everything I bought while on vacation and smoosh it all back into the carry-on. If the customs officers ever opened it at the airport, I’d be in trouble because I doubt I’d be able to fit everything back in the right spot on time to catch the plane.

a word a day interesting definitions…

I feel like homework on the weekends was way more acceptable when I was at University. I mean not that I don’t enjoy doing it (because I’m a loser, I know, but I can’t help it). I just finished doing a project that is really supposed to be a group project but most of them have all but disappeared. Or maybe they’re not snowed in on a Saturday night like I am. It is kind of fun to get back into the school mindset though. Now I just need to go out drinking and the experience will be complete. Too bad the only candida-friendly drink is gin (which, when mixed with perrier isn’t that bad). Hmm…maybe I’ll go do that now. Not like I can go anywhere anyway, right?
