My current favorite pastime.
It goes a little something like this:



Pack box of books.

Realize that you probably needed that one falconry book for the paper you need to write.

Unpack box of books to discover it’s not there.

Find book in stack you left on your desk because you might need them.

Have shot of tequila.
