Reading this again makes me smile because packing for trips is always fun for me. It requires organizing which I enjoy and forming lists which I also enjoy. And it reminds me of having THINGS. Like clothes and gifts and accessories and it reminds me of when my biggest disappointment in my life was that my boyfriend wouldn't propose. I wonder how I would've felt if I knew today I would have an engagement ring from him. Sitting in a box on my dresser. And I'm single.

This post makes me want to smoke so I can have a ashtray like yours!

What were you doing in Japan?

see, I am an organization and list freak too, but I HATE packing. I think it stresses me out too much and I can NEVER make up my mind of what to bring......

Help.

stephanie: lol you can get a cute ashtray like that and put other stuff in it besides ashes. i found it on ebay. it's definitely not licensed by sanrio. but i don't really care. i was in japan because my bf at the time lived there.

diana: i put listography.com on my "to check out list!"

gwen: it stresses me out too, but i think the joy of inventory-ing and organizing outweighs the stress for me.

chinkygirl: thank you!! (:
