All My Bags Are Packed, I’m Ready To Go

Posted by midnightcafe on August 5, 2007

We leave Monday. As in a little more than a day from right now. As in really, really soon.

We’ve packed, unpacked, and packed our bags again and again. They are weighed and measured and we think everything is exactly right. Yet we are still taking some back up bags in case our carry-ons are too big, or we need to drop some stuff onto our parents.

Though I’ve been really nervous all week, I’ve been very calm today. I think I’m just ready to get it all over with. I’m sure butterflies will come tomorrow, but for now I’m good.

We will have internet access in China, but it will be spotty for a little while. We’ll be in a motel for a few days when we arrive, and my sister is connnected, so I know I’ll be e-mailing, and I’ll probably slip in a blog somewhere, but it may take a couple of weeks to get settled and have internet in our apartment. Thus Brewster’s Millions will not be updated a lot.

I still don’t have a name for my China blog, so suggestions are still welcome. My wife suggested taking the name from those crazy signs they have in China where they have completely butchered the English language translation. I like the idea, but have yet to see one that was short enough for a URL, funny after a couple of listens, and made some sense as an ex-pat in China blog.

See you in a few days.

    one of my favs:

    ‘carefully slip and fall down’

    or ‘don’t score on the relics’

    or ‘do not into meadow’s rear’

    or ‘paper cut in China’

    or ‘little grass has life’

    or ‘Smokings pot’ (smoking spot)

    or ‘This is tour thing’

    or ‘it is duty of us’

    i’ve seen a billion so these are just off the top of my head.

    but don’t know if those are good urls

    Good luck! I’m a bit jealous over your adventure; can’t wait to read about it.
