Went on a bit of a shopping spree this morning after work and bought some snazzy new luggage.
I love the colour and the print and hopefully it will be easy to spot on the baggage carousel.
Also bought heaps of plain t-shirts as my wardrobe mainly consists of fandom shirts, most of which I'll be taking with me as well. But these will be fine worn under my other shirts as an extra layer against the cold.
And some snacks to get me through the 6 (Oz-NZ) and 14 hour (NZ-LA) flights and the 3 bus trips, one 5 hours, the other two 24 hours. Oh and the 2 3 day con weekends, of course. Will be buying fresh fruit when I get stateside.
There's still lots to do. Will be printing out all my con tickets, photo and auto ops, hotel reservations, bus tickets & schedules this weekend. Then doing a few loads of washing on Monday and packing on Tues. Hoping to sleep in Wednesday morning then take Sam for a nice long walk before packing the car with all his stuff and my luggage for the drive up to my brother's place around lunch time. He's dogsitting Sam for me, which will save me a fortune in kennel fees. He really loves him so I know my baby is going to be in good hands and spoilt rotten (hopping on the couch, sleeping in my brother's bed, getting lots of cuddles and play-time) He's also going to drive me to the airport, also saving me an expensive taxi fare.
