The essentials: a few dresses, some tank tops, shorts, bathing suits, sandals, Francesca Lia Block poetry, Succulent Wild Woman by Sark, notebooks, my journal, Kindle, Bible, laptop, camera, Ipod, and The Witch of Little Italy by my friend Susan Palmieri. And sunblock!
On Friday I'm headed to San Antonio to stay with my boyfriend's parents until Monday. Delta doesn't fly out of my hometown, so to San Antonio it is. They'll take me to the airport on Monday morning (we're talking before dawn, ugh) and I'll be on my way. I have a stop in Detroit, then Japan, and I'll land in Manila at 10:20 pm. I hope I can get some sleep on the plane so I'm not totally jet lagged. I think the longest flight I've been on was 5 hours, so this should be a challenge.
If you want to know all the mushy, gushy feeling stuff, I wrote a blog post over here.
I'll try and get a blog post in before I get to the Philippines, but if not, I'll talk to you when I get to the beach ;)
