Why does my instinct to PACK not kick in until after midnight? If I didn't have work tomorrow at 7:30 AM, I'd stay up all night trying to get this damn suitcase right. I have decided to pack shampoo that'll last a week and buy some there. I'm convinced that shampoo, conditioner & body gel are making my suitcase at least 5 pounds heavier.
I think if I put all the things in now, I'll be able to decide what I want and what can be left behind. It's hard. I like all my things.

I no longer need coffee in the morning. Listening to the AM local talk radio show is enough to wake me up. Today Georgey Bush got my veins pumping when I learned he's recatergorizing the "war" in Iraq as a religious one against Islamic fundementalism. I really can't say anything else about it because that sentence is pretty ridiculous. Think about it.
Also in an interview with Brian Williams yesterday he said Americans are sacrificing by paying taxes and standing in line at the airport.
Yes, this Monday I will be making a great sacrifice for my troops and country by standing in line at JFK waiting to go to Italy.
I think I've done my civic duty.
