I'm currently packing my bags to go visit steeplechasers, but it's proving somewhat difficult because I've jammed so many different functions into this trip. Like, I'll be in Texas, but then I also have to pack for a conference in San Francisco, which will be business casual and probably cold. But I also need a dress for my sister's graduation. But I'm also going backpacking and so I need to bring jackets and shit even though it will be JUNE. And I have a whole suitcase full of gifts for my family.
So it's just like, okay. Dress shoes. Dress. Blazer. Academic-looking clothes. BACKPACKING CLOTHES.
KNIVES. A LENGTH OF ROPE.
OH, BOOKS I NEED FOR RESEARCH. SHIT, TEACHING MATERIALS SO I CAN WORK ON MY CLASS FOR NEXT SEMESTER.
Maybe I should pack some "Fed threads" and holy water just, you know. To be prepared for every possible situation.
And what about this tin of chocolate sardines? Where do I fit that????
(It's a Father's Day gift. My dad doesn't like sardines, and he doesn't fish. But he does like weird things in cans, and chocolate. So really, if ever there were a person to receive a tin can of chocolate sardines...)
