How is it possible that I travelled for 3 weeks with a backpack that weighs far less than the overnight bag I just packed for our Christmas party?

You are a female.

I'd clearly blame it on the presents, Tina. And ignore Mikeyboab's comment, he probably needs twice as long in the bathroom as you do ;).

Oooooh SLAM........Steff 1, Mikey 0.....hahahahahahahahahahahaha

Mrs. T, don't you know that when you travel, you enter a time-space continuum where everything you touch becomes smaller (so no sex with Mr. T on the road).

At home, everything returns to it's normal size and shape. Don't your clothes seem bigger and baggier all of a sudden? On the road, you probably wore the skimpiest little outfits.......I always do. And no, this has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with latitude....or attitude.......or the changes therein........

So blame physics if you must. And where are your pictures of Mr. T in his skimpy little outfits??????? And what did you get me for Christmas (please don't tell me the pics of him)????

Have to agree with Beerman's assessment. Africa - hot. Canuckistan - not.

Mikey's just jealous because his company doesn't have a weekend Christmas Party get-away program. His present is getting to rearrange the things on the top of his desk - like the phone and stapler and staple remover.

some how the longer i am living the civilized life in the city, the more i seem to need to take with me on the road...or is it b/c i have a home base at my destination where i can dump everything? i usually travel with my tevas, birks & hiking shoes...now i seem to have a couple pairs of heels thrown in. how did that happen? the decision must be made by saturday 10am. HELP!

T l totally appreciate this phenomena - l experienced similar for backpacking in Vietnam easy - yet weekend in London - every item of clothing l own.

I put it down to preparing for every eventuality and the fact Christmas parties/city breaks etc etc need clothes and shoes that you wouldnt even contemplate putting into a back pack!

Holly - Graham put the heels in there. It's a well-known fact that men like to watch women try to hike in heels. Take one pair out and the other pair can be used as a defensive weapon if an occasion to wear them doesn't arise. Don't let him near your bag. Before you know it, the tevas and birks will be out completely and replaced with that classic little black dress, loads of sexy lingerie and stockings with the seam up the back. Resist, resist, resist. Also, pack last minute. You'll forget a bunch of stuff - such as the heels - and what you don't have, you don't need. Except maybe the toothbrush.

Purdy packs everything in her closet because she goes through 10 changes just getting dressed in the morning and then another 4-5 throughout the day/night. Then there's the make-up... Oh, and the hair care items... And...

Three words to keeping packing to a minimum: mix and match.

Mikey - I think I hear your wife calling. She needs to use the bathroom and you've been in there for hours.
