So ant3ka is entirely to blame for me having the song The Mermaid stuck in my head. Even if it was not her plan and the PWT video where she used it was uploaded more than five years ago. Has it been that long already?
I did my first attempt at packing. I may remove a couple things, I may switch suitcases, but round one is complete. I think the only additional item I need is a travel toothbrush - I picked one up today, but it fell out of my cart and I didn't notice until the clerk started to ring up my order. I decided it could wait.
So now I just need my currency to come in so I have a few SEK for the airport, I need to wrap my present for work's white elephant party tomorrow, I need to edit and submit all my documents to work so they know where things are and how things are to be done when I'm gone, I need to finish chebonne's present... Um, somehow every time I make this list it is longer, not shorter.
Anyway. I wrote a short story which I plan to read. Aloud. To coworkers. Wish me well? I am sort of entirely glad I will be leaving the country so soon after; I may need to escape.
A week from right now, I will be in Chicago. Well, actually, I'll be airborne but not far from Chicago. A week from tomorrow, I'll be in SWEDEN!
(Obviously other stuff has happened in my life, including new work drama, but fuck it, you get only the shiny stuff today)
I hope everyone's having a lovely holiday season. I do plan to do a holiday letter again like I did last year, virtual only because I hate going to the post office, but I'm saving it until after my vacation so you can hear about SWEDEN and how much chebonne mocked me and how much frostbite I got.
Also, yes, I did hit my head when I slipped on the ice today. But I am pretty sure my back was hurt more than my head.
Oh hey, and more rambling. Today at work I totally walked into an easel and knocked it down. And people saw. So yeah, that was hilarious yet embarrassing.
Also also? I really want spats. Simple ones that fit okay. I should make them, but yeah, I keep putting that off. I also have a whole bunch of accessories I want to make. Thanks, Project Accessory, you're reminding me of every craft project I've put off in years and how I can't find things I want in stores ever. Seriously, I need to up my crafting skills and motivations because if I want me to show in what I wear, I clearly have to make it myself.
