Other things I have to do before I go: pick up a hard-shell pistol case and a Samsonite suitcase, since I can't very well stick Masha in my laptop bag, with or without ammunition, and the notion of putting the pistol case in my soft-sided rolling bag strikes me as a really Bad Idea. Besides, the larger suitcase will allow me to pack the nose hose and still have room for three days' change of clothes, which I'll definitely need since I'm going from the airport directly to work on Monday.
I already started the ball rolling on opening an account with SunTrust (I'd go with Bank of America, but for one thing they probably remember me from the last time I had an account with them, and for another, I'm working for their competition and that just wouldn't be right) so that all I need to do is drop by their Lee Highway office, drop some cash on them, and by 12/16 I ought to have a local ATM/debit card so as to avoid getting nailed from both sides for ATM use fees. In the meantime, I'll manage. It's just one weekend.
In the real world of the Evil Banking Neighbor, I've pretty much finished my work for the day but I'm stuck here until 5 PM anyway. So I'm really busy with my stuff, not theirs. ^^
