Chicago bound!

Leaving for Chicago this evening, and I have the paralyzing fear that I'm forgetting something. Spent last night frantically packing: Toothbrush, check. Clothes, check. Camera, check. Floggers, check. Handcuffs, check. Rope, check. Needles, check. Shampoo, check. Crops, check. Njoy probe, check.

It's going to be a very busy trip. There are a bunch of you folks I'd like to see, and dayo and I were thinking about a big dinner get-together thing on Monday. scathedobsidian, amorsalado, dwer, does that work for you? (I already know cunningminx won't be there.) Anyone else on my flist in the Chicago area interested?

We're also planning to be at GD on both Friday and Saturday night. (whee!) Also, looking forward to spending a bit of time with sulenda, who charmed my socks off last time I was there. (whee!)

And oh, such evil as has never been seen under the sun must needs be done to dayo, oh my yes. Mad scientist jacket and rubber gloves, check.

But I still feel like I'm forgetting something...

Poll #1207447 Chicago!

What am I forgetting?

Interested in dinner on Monday?

Where are you guys located? I'm in Lincoln Square, and Zed/Insertclev are in the south/west 'burbs.

We're in Melrose Park -- south of OHare, North of 290/I88, west of Oak Park.

Ever consider keeping one or more general purpose travel checklists?

I find they help me remember important items and avoid similar feelings of anxiety.

Have fun!

That's probably a good idea. I'm highly disorganized even in the best of circumstances, so a checklist might be just what I need.

All I can really say is that it works for me. You can create the "skeleton" once and it's always there. My Dragon*Con checklist doesn't change much from year to year.

BATTERIES! I'm almost out. Funny enough, I'm sitting in a Panera across the street from Fry's. This can be remedied.

Hey Sweetie, Hope you have a wonderful trip. Sure was nice to meet the other day. Whew what a relief to find someone to talk about this stuff with...and I am gona enjoy showing you around the ATL - you have so much to see! I have met another person who wants to join me for a poly reading / discussion / social group that may might regularly at javamonkey. I love the idea and hope we can make it happen. I think you would enjoy it too. Don't get into too much trouble and remember there are folks here that want to have a piece of you - wink again. Warm regards, Ocilla

You forgot your theme song! Seriously, a friend of mine gave me a CD full of mp3s that I only recently discovered and loaded into my library, and there's a song called "When you're evil" by Voltaire, that immediately made me think of you when you're in sexual-sadist mode. I mean, "Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need"? Soo.... scarily true.

Ooh! Got a link to the song?

Afraid not... I just got it as a random mp3 on a CD from a friend.

This is why I have a basic travel kit. I keep a small bag with all the stuff I always need, including a set of chargers for my electronics. I guess all those years camping when I was younger paid off. You only forget something once when you're hiking up the side of a mountain.

Hey! That was my cousin, not me. I always wore my boots on the ride up.

I forgot things like an extra set of batteries or sun block.
