Friday 5 - Packing

Friday, Friday, Friday!  I'm so glad it is Friday!  Yeah, I'm ready for the weekend.  Not that I have any great plans, but the downtime will be good.  I thought I'd celebrate with a bit of Friday 5.  I mean, I really know it is Friday when I get to do the Friday 5 meme.  So....

1. How far ahead of time do you begin packing for a weekend trip?  Goodness.  When is the last time I took a weekend trip?  A good long while, for sure.  But I can say that packing, as with most things that require preparation, is worked out ahead of time mentally.  I tend to go over things in my mind, maybe make lists, but do the actual physical preparations pretty last minute. 

2. What was your most recent purchase of a six-pack?  Another thing I haven't done in a good long while.  Can't recall the last time I bought a six-pack of beer...and even when I buy soda I generally buy the 12-pack.  Every couple of weeks I need another 12-pack of Super Chill cola.

3. What do you look for in a good everyday backpack?  Good, sturdy straps and zippers.  A dark, neutral color.  There, set to go.  Boring, but reliable.  I guess that is me and my everyday backpack. 

4. Among people you know, who’s the worst packrat?  I know a few packrats.  I think I have a sort of inclination towards it, but over the years I have learned to let things go quite well.   DR is one of the worst packrats I know, but I think he is trying to reform :-)

5. How do you know when it’s time to pack it in each evening?  When my eyes refuse to remain open any longer, I pack it in.  Otherwise, I just go on watching tv or reading.  I have to almost literally pass out before I can pack it in!

Hope you are all able to pack lots of fun and relaxation into your weekend!  Don't forget to Fall Back on Sunday!

My grandmother was a packrat and it was hellish trying to clear out her house. The item that got the biggest laugh was a couple of packs of camera flashcubes. Yeah - never know when THOSE might come in handy!

Your answer to number 5 is very similar to mine! Twins again! :)

I misread "12-pack of Super Chill cola" and thought it was "Super Chili cola". Now I'm all hungry for chili. I need to add that to the signs I need to pack it in for the evening - when I'm seeing things! :)

My ex was one of the worst packrats I've ever met. He still has an entire room full of newspapers. So not safe.

Secret: Oh my :-) Yes, people who save just KNOW they are going to need these things someday!

Tara: haha! So we both have to pass out...or begin seeing signs of chili all around.

3GK: hee hee! What's cooler than being cool? Ice cold!

Churlita: Oh yuck. I never understand that and can only think of the fire hazard and all the creatures that'd love to nest there.
