And, of course, the paper I'll be giving. Can't forget that!
The nice thing about taking the week to prepare is that I can think of things gradually and not panic about doing them/obtaining them. Oops, shower flip-flops! No sweat*, I'll just make another CVS run for a cheap pair. That sort of thing. I've got laundry cooking, so I can pack at a nice leisurely pace tomorrow, do a houseclean so the place will be nice when I get home, and clear out the back "porch."** I fly out on Alitalia Friday at 3:30, and then the magic of the Copacetic Travel Bubble begins. Whatever happens, happens. I'm as prepared as I'll ever be.
This is going to be awesome.
* Other than the general sweat of it being 93 degrees.
** It's a little enclosed fourth-floor storage shed not worthy of the title "porch."
