THINGS I'M DOING TO PREPARE FOR A TRIP TO LA IN A FEW HOURS

  1. Not packing
  2. Listening to Carly Rae Jepsen
  3. No, actually, listening to Janet
  4. Texting people I know on the West Coast; a few who live in LA... Making really vague plans like "dinner this week" or "drinking at that gay bar"
  5. Watching all of Juliette Lewis' instagram videos
    Big sis.
  6. Trying to download relevant podcasts
    Again realizing that I'm not really a podcast person. I'm just a StoryCorp and This American Life person. Everyone is a StoryCorps/TAL person.
  7. Looking for a book of poems in my bookshelf
    There are none. I literally hate poetry.
  8. Watching a lot of people singing Carly Rae Jepsen covers on Youtube
  9. I have literally not packed
    Nothing could ever fit.
  10. Ordering Seamless at midnight
    New York, baby.
  11. Realizing Seamless will rot in fridge when I'm gone all week.
    Need to eat all of it. It's a lot. Like "three forks in the bag" a lot.
  12. Trying to find episode of "Fixer Upper" that's based in LA
  13. Yelping restaurants.
    Turns out there's a lot of shit to eat in LA just like the last time I was there, a few months ago.
  14. Finally checked my boarding pass.
    I leave earlier than I thought. Duh.
  15. Packing
    I'm totally packing now
