between us girls

try to get it all out of your system this week please

snow 0 °C

I'm referring, of course, to Mother Nature. That's quite a load you dumped on us today; and seeing as how this time next week I'm supposed to be enjoying a cocktail on my flight to Delhi -- at this very minute you should know -- I just want to make sure you don't do anything to rain (uh, make that snow) on my parade.

Because hell hath no fury like a woman who's planned a trip for nine months and then can't go because of bad weather!! Enough said.

Yes. I've had all my shots. I've swilled back enough Dukoral to make sure I never get e-coli. My malaria pills are on stand-by until the day before I leave. I've paid my money. Renewed my passport. Got my visa. Done my laundry. Had my hair cut. Made lists. Checked lists. Double-checked lists. Scratched things of lists. Made new lists. Stocked up on cat food. Loaded up on Litter. Remembered to buy cat treats. Charged batteries. Downloaded music. Paid bills. Ordered money. Bought medicine. Bought books. Bought bathing suits. Finished shopping. Booked a limo.

In other words, I'm ready to go!

When will you next hear from me? Maybe while I'm whiling away the hours in The Maple Leaf Lounge. Maybe before the plane takes off. Maybe from Brussels if we're there long enough. Definitely from Delhi -- which is our first stop.

We arrive there at about 10:30 at night on the 27th of December and will be staying at the fabulous Imperial Hotel -- do check it out on the web. A family friend lives there so I'll get a chance to see her and her husband while I'm in town. She's going to take me shopping for a sari or a salwar kameez -- I've decided I want to wear native garb for New Year's Eve -- which we're celebrating in a former palace -- now a heritage hotel!

So stay tuned. I promise to keep in touch.
