Minor annoyances

It often happens that I'll sit down to blog at midnight (or somewhen) and I have no idea what to write, even though throughout the day I had many good ideas, simply because I've forgotten them. Tonight however there is no worry of that, if only because I'm supposed to be packing for New York, and then Morristown. I'm taking a little time off that because it's quickly becoming a very annoying process. How is it that I'm paying forty dollars so that I can put two bags underneath the airplane, and I can't fit everything in? Is this normal? And it's not like I'm bringing crazy stuff either. It's just clothing!

I was thinking of a post for my imaginary blog which you might want to implement. V'Yakov Holech L'darko- we pack up our"suitcases" from all that we acquired over tishrei...something to do with that, perhaps?

And i thought you were worried about all your seforim making your baggage overweight [metaphor unintended].

How much clothing do you have? You are male, correct?

Nemo said...

Yes, but one can never be too over-prepared when arriving in those backwoods of New Jersey.

e: And has the slightly older lad ended?

Anon: A good idea...no, really, I mean it.

SZB: Most of the Sefarim I got in CH. It was very difficult to fit my nineteen pairs of shoes and thirty pairs of boots in my baggage, but BH I managed.

Nemo: Exactly.

You know, you're lucky you only have to pay to bring luggage with you. soon they're probably gonna start charging you a seat fee, and a taxi-ing fee, and a lift-off fee...

Cheerio said...

Nemo said...

Yossi: Give it time.

Cheerio, Obnock, Nemo: Exactly.
