I know what girls want want

Well the tea cartons are all away. All I have left is my backpack. I hope my whisky gets to Australia ok, I'm going to be really disappointed if it doesn't turn up/is undrinkable when it gets there. That and the external HDD, I'm nervous about sending stuff like that with a company that isn't a common carrier/courier. (The external HDD would be expendable except its got quite a lot of Jess's, mine, and Paul's pictures on it)

It's a lot cheaper to use one of these companies rather than a courier. Jess used DHL I think and she won't tell me how much it costs (probably because I'm an old man and having a heart attack wouldn't help on the eve of a seven week holiday). Well, I feel older.

I've still got to mail away my world wall map.

I'll be lording it over two temps at work next week. Which is both a drag and handy. Two of our b&w machines are down due to ongoing faults and the work is piling up. This month has been pretty big so far, going through 200 reams of paper or so every 3 or 4 days (instead of the 5 or 6 which is the usual).

I really wish I could get paid and didn't have to work this last week. I just want to be on holiday =)

Also have to book a hostel in Paris now, Christina's bf won't be there so thats out. Maybe there's a CS'er there who could help us out. I'll have a look later today.

Thats it, I'm out.

I know it's cheaper to use the post office than a courier, but I'm mailing all my chef's tools and my knives as well as my entire computer. That's all stuff that's essentially irreplaceable, especially my tools & knives - it would take ages (and lots of money) to track down all the separate pieces again and buy them all, should something go wrong. Consider it an investment into my career in Australia :p

And you're not THAT old! :)

I wasn't saying you SHOULD have used regular post - I was just saying you were using DHL and it was really expensive.
