Meh.  
I sent my brother to change my dollars into pounds today. I needed 40 pounds and the website said that would be about $65, and all I had was $20 bills so I gave him $80. Turns out it was a good thing, as the total came to $76 and change - apparently the exchange rate went up. Color me unamused.

In other news, my foot seems to be getting better but it still hurts and looks icky. Also, my dad has found the little carryon size luggage with the pull-out handle and wheels for me, and I think this will be much easier to manouvere through the airports and will hopefully make things easier on me, as it is generally easier to pull something than carry it. At least that is my hope.

Finally, if you have any last requests for things I should bring, comment now or forget it, as I am going shopping tomorrow night after work. And now, bed.
 
 
I feel: crankycranky

Ugh, don't remind me about the exchange rate. I've spent the whole year with my fingers in my ears, humming, and pretending that it doesn't exist. :( There's nothing quite like handing over a $100 bill and getting £58 and change back. You feel so cheated. *grumble*

Glad foot is getting better -- will think healthy thoughts toward it. And yay smaller luggage with handles! Those kinds of suitcases make life sooo much easier.

I would request a small bag of giant marshmallows, just in case mine run out, but only if you have enough space. Thanks! :D

It's distinctly less than satisfying. Even so, I am not in favor of the UK going to the Euro. I feel this way only for sentimental reasons and not practical, and as I don't live there, my opinion means less than nothing, but I hope it doesn't happen.

I have it on the list. I think it should be okay - marshmallows are squishy anyway. ;)

Probably a little late now, but my favourite conversion site is www.xe.com. When I first moved to Scotland the exchange was 1.31. Now it's 1.65. Sigh. Have such a good time! Anything you forget you can get over there, so you'll be fine. I can't wait to hear all about it!
