It's been a while since I've had what I would call an in-person crush. I have a couple of crushes on lj people whose style of writing or insights tickle my fancy, and I have some people I know in person who I know I want to expand the context of our relationship when the opportunity arises...

But what I'm talking about here is the type of crush where your heart beats a little faster when you see the person, and you get all twitterpated when you talk to hir, and you feel like you're being a doofus and not coming up with anything interesting to say, but you really WANT to be interesting and keep talking, even if it's just a ridiculous conversation about how comfortable hir shoes are because you've been thinking about getting a pair like them...

Now, I'm not saying it's fun to feel doofy, but overall, it IS fun to have a crush, even with the attatched doofiness.

I've hit a good stride on the difficult-to-pack stuff. I spend a few minutes packing, then I come back to my computer, check on the latest gossip on irc, lj, etc. What this means is that I need all of you to post lots of interesting stuff for the next couple of days, so I can take interesting breaks :)

Last night was my final night sleeping in my apartment -- I'll be spending the rest of the nights of August at San & Kai's condo in Cambridge, where I'm plant and pet sitting. Getting ready to head over there, I just carried my suitcase to the car. This is the suitcase I'll be taking to Guatemala, with about 95% of the stuff I'll be taking with me. This seems like a major milestone, somehow...

I still have packing to do, but I'm getting to the dregs -- I'm at the stage where every box seems like it should be the last... but WAIT! there's more! And I think to myself, "Do I really own this much stuff? That's absurd!"

You know how you can be having a perfectly fine time, and then one little thing just throws it all off and suddenly, it's all sucky and you want a snuggle? I hate that.
