Traveling and getting older

I leave for London tomorrow afternoon. Since I have plans tonight (the PLHB and I are going to see Cirque du Soleil), I packed last night. It amuses me that I can fit everything I need for a trip to Europe in a carryon bag with plenty of room to spare, and do it in less than five minutes.

It also amuses me thaat I can make lunch plans with someone 6000 miles away as easily as I can with someone on the other side of the room.

On the way to work I stopped and bought myself a birthday present-- a new pair of noise-canceling headphones. For the flights I'll have 280+ hours of This American Life on my iPod, plus four books. That ought to do it.

I'm pissed, though. I bought a quad-band GSM phone on Ebay just for the trip, and the assholes dicked on shipping long enough that it won't be here in time.
