Pirates

Alas, my seven months of home vacation are over tomorrow.

Been a whirlwind few days, but as of 11:30 last night, I got everything (except for what I use on a daily basis) packed!  This left me free to have one nice day at home - literally nice, after almost a solid week of rain and dark clouds, the sun came out! - in which I got to do things like go see "The Simpsons" and otherwise generally relax and hang out with the dog.

I expect it will take forever to load the van, though.  Despite trying to pack less, I feel as though I just have STUFF *everywhere.*  Literally, I have all of the following cases for loading, many of which are themselves filled with smaller containers of items...

Seriously, I do not know how people who have to take a plane to college manage it.  Well, I suppose I could manage if I really tried, but...this hodgepodge assortment in the back of the van has been working well enough for the last 3 years.

And since I had such a relaxing day, I decided to upload some music from that lovely meme going 'round...ashields124 gave me "M."  Which was much more difficult than I thought it would be, as it turns out I don't have a lot of songs that start with M at all, much less really good songs...I had to hunt through the actual covers of my CD collection to rummage up the last few, but I'm glad I did.   It was fun. 

Comment and (if you want) I'll give you a letter.
In your journal, list 10 of your favorite songs that begin with that letter.

I really want to write about the movie in this post too, except I got distracted several times while writing this, and it's now half past 11, I'm tired, and would really like to take my last opportunity to get a full night's sleep in my big, higher-than-2-feet-above-the-floor bed, with my dog next to me and no one else in the room.
