In case you were wondering, I bought plenty of underwear. Also Ziploc bags.

all packed up (in Boston, anyway)

The winter clothes are in one duffel, the Gambia clothes are in another; enough other stuff is in bags and boxes to fill the mighty Taupe Subaru Wagon pretty much to the brim; Cat B is lying at my feet, unaware of the indignities to which she is about to be subjected; and I am just about ready to head down to NJ*. Stopping off in New Haven to have lunch with my uncle and see where I can stick a (mewling) cat carrier for an hour or so...oh, Cat B. We're going to have so much fun together!
Watch out, eastern seaboard - I can't see out my rear window.

*then DC, then Baltimore, then (I hope) down the shore and Philly. Holla if you're around any of those places.

I am live and online

All the kids (even the ones in the Peace Corps) seem to be on the Interweb these days, so I figured it was time to jump on the bandwagon. Especially since I'm all finished up with my jobs - no more office, library, or standardized-testing duties to get in the way of goofing off - that is, preparing for departure. I'm only about 15 minutes into it, but so far the 21st century is beating microfilm hands down. Next up: errands.

Staging Event (ie, shots and How Not to Get Assaulted on the Plane): June 11.
Leaving the Country: June 13
Arriving in Country: June 14

Holy crap - I'd better buy some more underwear.
