I leave my house at arse o'clock tomorrow morning to get to the airport (thanks to my mother the saint) and fly to Orlando, where I will be meeting up with lash_larue again and then eventually zofbadfaith. I'm very excited. (: (I also haven't taken a domestic flight in longer than I can remember--travel without passport, what a thought! Oh, I suppose there was getting from Chicago to Boston, but that was part of an international travel home. Domestic flight alone, then? Actually, I'm not sure I've ever taken a domestic flight alone; here's to new experiences!)

All packed up. I'll admit it's a little funny watching a New England girl all in autumn hoodies and flannels pack for Florida. I kept eyeing my hoodies as a form of apology.

Supposed to be sleeping now (was supposed to be sleeping at 10) and was treating this like a high school night, but then I realised I never could get myself to bed in high school, either. So some-time-past-11 it is; there can always be coffee in the morning.

Tomorrow is also Minerva McGonagall's birthday (one of the few I always remember), so here's to you, Minerva!

I probably won't be online much for the next week, so I'll just have to catch up on all the glorious samhain_smut goodies when I return. (; Please do comment away for me! (Especially since I'm already behind, what finishing my reading of hogwarts_houses.)

This post is also left in hopes that I am kept safe in my travels tomorrow (seems mean to kill me on McG's natal anniversary!) and on the 12th, if I forget to make a post for it (come on, universe, my life is a blink of the eye by your timeline; surely a plea a week in advance isn't too inconveniencing--please?).

Best wishes to all of you and please keep well! ♥

Have a great time, sweetie! (And with Lash, of course you will.) i wish you safe travels. Will you be going to HP World?

I'm embarrassed to say that I totally forgot about Minerva's birthday. Last year at this time, we were gearing up for the first day of the minerva_fest.

We expect picspam when you get back!

Thank you!

(We did not intend to go to HP World, originally. But it, erm, called to us. Who were we to ignore that call?)

It's perfectly acceptable for you to forget her birthday for one year, I'm sure. (: (I'm still shocked I remember it every year, when my own can sneak up on me.)

I need to start checking off the subjects on my 'Post to LJ' list, especially given how many are picspacms.

Happy trails, have oodles of fun, take *lots* of pictures and give everyone hugs from me!

We'll be thinking of you, Lash and Zee down in the warm Florida sun and wishing we were with you! :-)

I loved the title of this one. (: Oodles of fun were had and pictures were taken (although I don't know about *lots*, and some are a bit odd).

I would have gladly have given you the warm Florida sun and stuck with some less-warm Florida shade instead... :B

Absolutely did! The plan is to catch up on some LJ (I know I can catch up on a week, compared to some time amounts I've done), go through my 'give away' pile for a yardsale and hopefully get cracking on catching up on my own LJ tomorrow!

Hug Lash and Zee for me!
