All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go...

Well, everything I'm gonna possibly fit in my car is in my car.

Unpacking should be a fun task. I need to hire some child slave labor when I get there.

But seriously I am so impressed. Almost everything I own fit in the car. I would venture to say that everything I own could have fit in the car, had I not decided to stick the TV in there. But oh well. I am tres happy. It was almost Harry Potter-esque...stuff keeps fitting in, no matter how small the space.

So here's the rundown on today:

I woke up early to start packing, started making red beans and rice part II, then went to Jimmy Johns (my new favorite sandwich place) to meet P-diddy for lunch. A shout out for his brand new car. He's been due a nice new ride for a long time, and has done well. A Honda Accord. It is bee-you-tee-full! And it has a 6-cd changer. Rowr. All the ladies are gonna be wantin' a piece of that action.

After lunch I finished packing, then had a nice dinner with Nance, Pat and Kack. We ate outside and had to wear sweatshirts. I swear to God, the apocalypse is coming. What is up with the cold weather in August??

Nanci surprised me with a set of demi-tasse cups--Those cute little tiny pretentious cups for espresso. I decided awhile back I'm going to start collecting them. They have little scenes of Paris on them and are just adorable. So now I can drink my express and stick my pinkie out and be cool.

I am all set. I'll see Drevs and Brigid one last time tomorrow morn, make a stop in Chicago to see my hetero life mate Meg, then it's Tex-ass here I come!

I'm scared. And excited. And sad to leave my "family" in South Bend. But anxious to meet the "new" family I'll meet find in Austin.

I will leave you with this link. I am "officially" on the staff of the UT French Dept. Stay tuned for my "office hours"!

Wish me luck!

You've seen the new Mobile Taj? Jealous. But you know Diddy draws the birds even without the pimp ride.
