making packing progress!
wooo!
didn't unpack too much, which helps. So, most of the clothes I'm bringing are what I wore in Russia. Took out some unnecessary stuff and some cold weather stuff and added some more temperate weather clothing
lost one sweater, added a bunch tea shirts, left only one tie (never needed three, although they're nice), added another pair of jeans and more underwear so I can put off laundry (no more host mother doing my laundry all the time)
I took out a bunch of souveniers that I'm not taking to school.
I'm taking a rather large amount of stuffed animals. I hadn't realized the levels to which my stuffed cat collection had reached.
speaking of stuffed cats, where's chip? I could bring him to school.
stuffed animal inventory from memory:
-cute stuffed monkey (it's the year of the monkey, ya know)
-one cuddly stuffed cat that looks like Hanna with accompanying kitty scarf made by Amanda
-one cuddly black and white kitty that I love that LT sent me as a present
-one mechanical black and white kitty that I bought in the metro
-Mexican the black and white gift kitty from dariabat
-Chip(?) a loaner brown and black beanie kitty from baileyjosh (it's cute. For a while I didn't bring him with me because he's too cute to travel)
-one more that's a present and none of you better go blabbing!
-one small non-musical Cheburashka (perhaps was musical, but is broken, but I didn't want him to sing so it's close enough)
-one musical Krokodil Gena

other stuff inventory:
-45 dvds
-2 videos
-a whole bunch of burned cds, some doubles and I don't care. will be useful in radio show in which i better get. one cohost is in london, but it'll be ok. it'll just be different.

other things of note:
-postcards and cards from Russia as souvenier decorations and card calendars of dreamy Russian politicians
-lots of maps and one portrait of Putin
-baileyjosh's EZ fashion guide for Dummies © to make sure I don't make any major fashion faux pas

hope I'm not forgetting anything important.
there are some things that I thought about and figured I can always bring later.
however, all 45 dvds are necessary immediately.

For fashion faux pas, all you need is me to tell you what not to wear :D

Are you saying that if I want to commit a fasion faux pas I should ask you what not to wear? And so, I should ask you what not to wear and then do the opposite to avoid fashion faux pas?
Or no, I think you mean that I should ask you what not to wear to avoid fashion faux pas. :D thanks! <3
I will consult you if I'm not too embarassed. More likely I will put something on, then drape myself in a cloak and run to you to ask if what I'm wearing is bad and if yes, what I should do about it.
or, I'll be too lazy and make many a fashion faux pas and then you will see me and tell me so and I will make a note of it.
Thanks!!!! :D:D:D

It may not show in the way I dress, but I actually do know what the faux pas are and how to avoid them :D

Hey, when you get back you should come hang out in Dag House. We have FOUR (count 'em) four cats living among us. All of whom are completely insane. Granted, KiKi is insane only because he's deathly afraid of people and runs away everytime somebody goes near, but Rufus, Lola, and Dana are more socially insane. That is, they come in my room and demand to be petted/build nests under my bed/attack my feet/try to eat stuff. I call them the Insane Cat Posse. But I bet you'd like them.

I love them already!!!
Now that I know this, it's going to be hard to get me out of Dag House.
I am sad that our really sweet Russian House cat is gone because her owner graduated early. :( We were gonna adopt a new one but noone can take a cat during breaks. I would, but I have four cats here at home. more is simply impossible. and one of the cats we have here was adopted by me, so that would be kinda... bad of me.
and hahaha! I just got that. Insane Cat Posse. That's really funny. I love them! They are my friends.

Are there any times I should not be stopping by Dag House to play with these kitties? I don't want to walk in on the Dag House ritualistic group orgy or anything.

echem!
I hope you don't listen to other people's advice when you have the patented, all rights reserved, guaranteed or your money lost Idiot's Guide to Couture: Learn To Be Hip plan!

Just listen to this shlub:
Shlub: [sniffle] Before I found this book... I... I actually... [chokes up] I'm sorry this is difficult... but yes, I did wear white socks with black shoes, but I KNOW BETTER NOW! Thanks to the plan, I'll never go back to looking like a slob. Thank you EZ Fashion Guide!

See?
