Departure Deadline Update

Just got the Goldie Locks buzzed off by Fr. Rick J.  I feel 15 lbs lighter and a whole lot cooler!

The initial sweep of the room captured about three cubic meters of Dust Bunnies and related detritus.  A secondary and final sweep will turn up even more pieces of random paper, Stray Pennies, pencil parts, bits of tape, and the occasional busted rubber band.  

Still have to figure out how to sort four 33 gallon bags of garbage.  The E.U. Nannies insist we recycle. . .but their recycling categories do not include slots for Broke Down-Fruit of the Looms; pieces of Styrofoam from a clock radio that never worked right; three large plastic vacuumed sealed bags for storing clothes; a bald toilet brush; and three and a half tablespoons of an Italian laundry detergent that I never used.  Oh, and what about the 11 used tubes of toothpaste I've been stashing in a drawer b/c I couldn't figure out if they go in Plastic or Metal?

Heading out at 5.30am tomorrow morning. . .please, pray for me!

P.S.  Yes, I've put a men's cologne on my Wish List.  Before I became a Dominican, I spent WAY too much money on that sort of thing.   Now, I rarely buy cologne/aftershave.  But a faithful H.A. reader asked me what I wanted for Christmas.  Rumor has it that the Guerlain Vetiver is a classic men's cologne.

    YIKES! Say it isn't so? So many people have allergies to scents now and men slop the stuff on much worse than women do. There is a vapor trail after they walk by.

    I say, skip the scent and stick to books.

  2. Anon, I know what you mean. Fortunately, the era of Big Scents is largely over. . .I mean, stuff like the old green Polo isn't so popular nowadays. Thing is: you gonna smell like something. Do you want to leave it to chance?
