Parting Is So Painful - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Parting Is So Painful
Why is the MLA held between Christmas and New Year's Day? I hate the fact that I'm packing instead of lounging in front of the television in the soft glow of our tree. I hate even more that I'm leaving behind a ton of turkey sandwich material and several delicious pies. Although I've been full for hours, I've gamely been stuffing my face with the cute little pumpkin and apple-berry pies that Bean made just for me. I can't disappoint her, even if I'm going to be paying the consequences on the flight tomorrow. I'm also going to be missing several trips to the park to try out her new soccer ball and baseball glove, the opportunity to watch my new Beavis and Butthead DVD collection, and the favors of my partner, who has been patiently awaiting my recovery from the flu. And I'm not happy about any of this!

My parents live near D.C. And one of my favorite people in the world is making his first foray into the job market. And friends will be there. And I love the city this time of year. Otherwise, I'd stay here!
