Packing is just the worst. I definitely prefer unpacking. Friend and fellow co-worker Ben and I spent all Thursday loading up Beatrice. And she was loaded, let me tell you.
But let’s back up a little. I was supposed to leave on Wednesday, the 15th, but delayed my trip and went to the company Christmas party instead. Definitely a good move– I mean it’s not every day you get to see Thomas Keller dancing to Funky Cold Medina (lyrics listen ). I even won $50 in movie tickets (which I spread among my friends not fortunate enough to be leaving Sin City). With the free drinks, food, friends, dancing, prizes and whatnot, I do believe a good time was had by all. SO good a time, in fact, that it was necessary to delay departure for a … few days.
