I am Jack’s overstuffed suitcase.
I hate packing, especially because the time I’m going – 6 months – is an ambiguous amount of time, somewhere stuck between a short trip and a full move. I want to settle in, yet remain mobile. Prepared, but potentially nomadic. Then again, I’m sure that it won’t be the easiest thing to find clothes in my size, so I’m resigning to bring more than I probably would have liked to otherwise.
Tomorrow’s going to be a hell of a day, with several rounds of errands, followed by some lovely wine tasting, burger-eating and bachelor-partying, ending with hopefully crashing on somebody’s floor.
In the meantime, it seems I completely missed a disk of Veronica Mars and skipped straight to the finale, and didn’t notice… not sure what that says about me or the show.
