I'm having an exceptionally lazy day today, and I can tell you why. I have to pack. I'm getting ready to go out of town for a few days, and while I like the actual being in other places thing, and am looking forward to catching up on some of the books I have stockpiled on my Kindle, I can't bring myself to start the actual packing process.

There's something that's just inherently frustrating (for me, anyway) about trying to cram X days' worth of clothes into a suitcase. It's like my suitcase knows when I'm almost finished, and suddenly all the clothes expand and I end up sitting on the suitcase, muttering "close, you stupid thing, close!"

At least I have my Kindle. It's very freeing not to have to lug around a bag of books and a suitcase. (Not that I won't be bringing books. This is me we're talking about. I have to bring a few because I haven't not taken a book somewhere since--well, ever. Plus as much as I love my Kindle, nothing beats an actual book. I just love the weight of them, the smell of the pages, and all the promise they hold.)

ooooh, maybe I should go look through my books and see which ones I want to bring now.*


*That totally counts as packing, right?

I normally end up packing as I should be leaving. Yah for procrastinating. Well, I hope your trip goes well. Have fun.
