Am agonizing over shoes and jewelry. HOW CAN I POSSIBLY CHOOSE?
Here's a sampling of things I've already packed:
My fabulous new 4.5 pound Dell XPS M1210 laptop with nifty carrying case,
Some screener DVD's of films I've never heard of (other titles I'm taking - mostly gleaned from the bargain bins at Hastings Video - include Elmer Gantry, The (original) Italian Job, and Winchester 73),
The extremely cool "Birds of Southeast Asia" book that Brian gave me for my trip, and a couple of books I picked up at the used bookstore that are really thick and can be left behind if I actually finish one of them (must have room to pack gifts on the return trip!). I also have a lot of reading material about each of the countries I'll be visiting.
