The early bird ate all the worms and puked

I'm wide awake, it's morning...

Actually, I'm only sorta awake, but it is definitely morning.

4 days.

My To-Do List has not gotten much smaller. I did go to REI and get some outdoorsy-travel-types of things, including shampoo that you use w/o water! I doubt I NEED such a thing, but it just sounds so fantastic...I also got more functional things like pants that zip off and become shorts, a North Face fleece thing, a Columbia windbreaker, a super-absorbent micro-fiber towel, and a pair of outdoorsy-type shoes (i.e. leather w/ thick soles...the opposite of my preferred canvas Rocket Dogs.) I think I will go to Target today and get deodorant and stuff.

I am sooooooooo dreading that 13 hour flight across the Pacific...I haven't even thought about the 5 hours from here to LAX. Ugh. Not to mention the 90 minutes from Auckland to Christchurch...

Not that I'm complaining. I am, of course, but only superficially. It's totally awesome that I can just go to the other side of the world and we're going to have a wicked bad time, as Scottish Stu would say. It's surreal. A 13 hour flight I can comprehend. New Zealand...not so much.

I need to run along to work. Lots to do.
