I've been outwitted by a stapler

They do say staplers are very intelligent. This one is -- it has a button that you might *think* would open it, but no. It has ridges that you might be able to pull to open it, but they're too narrow for my fingers. Gack!

In other not-so-bright news, I was being all efficient and finished my taxes, Canada and U.S., and even took them to the mailbox tonight -- one less thing to do tomorrow. Except that I forgot to attach my cheque to the Canadian return. I figured out how to do it online, but it was still a big "Doh!" moment.

Nonetheless, I've gotten loads done today. Packing a month's wardrobe in a carry-on isn't easy, but [info]takhys's brilliant plastic baggie method is letting me cram lots more in. I'll do the final culling tomorrow (obviously) but it now looks possible. I've got a bigger memory card for my camera, printed out my itinerary and all the stuff I'll need along the way, packed all my presents (save the bottle of rye I must pick up tomorrow), and my flashdrive's well-stocked with videos, fics to read, and fics to write. *groan*

I'd really hoped to contribute something to [info]ides_of_march, but that was apparently a big part of yesterday's stress. (Staring paralysed at the computer, fearing that everyone will forget everything I've ever written if I don't post a fic before leaving, is not conducive to writing smut!) But there was some great stuff written today, including Silver Thaw, [info]aldiara's latest chapter of "In This Home on Ice." It's wickedly hot -- and really, who doesn't love hypothermia fic? And then [info]kabal42 wrote a great missing scene from "Valiant", The Wrong Helmet (which I want to type as "The Wrong Trousers" and omg that'd be a great crossover for the Black Knight), when I asked how Arthur reacted to Merlin's screw up. (Plus I just really like hanging out at Kabal's journal to look at the banner. I love that picture -- it was done by the BBC, with a smaller table than is used in the episode, and I just have such fun imagining what instructions the photographer gave to get them to look at each other like that.)

OK, puttering calls, must run. *smooches all around* I hope you all had fabulous weekends!
