2004-05-01 : Not that I’m disorganised or anything…
4:49am, Saturday May 1st. I leave for London in about 6 hours, or something.
Luckily, I've just finished packing. Jeez, what a pain in the crevice that exercise was. As today was such a full-on stressful day, I found great happiness in the fact that I'd had a chance to catch up and relax with most of my friends a couple of weeks beforehand.
I've discovered it's REALLY hard to narrow your life's possessions down to the 20kg you most want to have with you. Mind you, I've decided that scrawny arsed skinny people have it easy – they can fit 10 of their t-shirts into the same weight that 4 of mine take. Grr.
At this stage of the game, I keep thinking of the line in Snatch –
Airport Staff : Do you have anything to declare ?
Avi: Yeah, don't go to England !
I'm sure it'll be fun once I get there though.
