Will move to a hotel

New trainees are coming to Tokyo Kenshu Center next week, so Aris and
I have to move to a hotel temporarily. We’ll get our stuff from TKC on
Tuesday evening and move to a hotel near the Ayase train/subway
station, one stop away (grr; that makes the commute a little longer).
I probably won’t have Internet access then, and will connect mainly from
the office.

Aris will check out of the hotel on Saturday and move back to TKC. I’m
meeting Tomoko on Friday night for another trip, though, so I need to
move my luggage earlier. I don’t think it’ll fit within coin lockers.
Logistics are somewhat complicated…

- 1. I need an overnight bag for Friday-Saturday containing pajamas
and two changes of clothes for the next day. (Onsen trip.)

- 2. I need business clothes for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

- 3. I can leave luggage at TKC.

- 4. If I don’t mind walking for 20 minutes, I can pass by TKC on the

way to Ayase.

- 5. I will be late if I have to go back to TKC or Ayase on Friday night.

- 6. My onsen trip is on Saturday.

- 7. Coin lockers are generally only for one day, so leaving a

Thursday-Friday overnight bag at Shinjuku is out of the question.

- 8. I may be able to leave my overnight bag and/or work bag in the

office.

MONDAY NIGHT: Lug big luggage down to lobby. Put aside clothes in a
bag, and label them clearly. I need business clothes for Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday. I can include Fri/Sat overnight clothes in this
bundle. Wear pleated skirt, which will be packed.

TUESDAY: Put pajamas into a small bag and add them to my left-behind
luggage. Go to work carrying normal work bag. Check into the hotel in
the evening. AOTS will make sure my set-aside clothes will be there by
then.

WEDNESDAY: Wear black striped skirt and black blouse.

THURSDAY: Bring Fri/Sat overnight clothes to work.. Leave work bag in
office.

FRIDAY: Check out of the hotel in the morning. Bring hotel clothes to
work. Pick up overnight trip clothes. Leave blazer in office.

SATURDAY: Trip! =)

SUNDAY: Unpack dress, hang to deal with wrinkles.

MONDAY AFTER: Bring work bag and hotel bag back to TKC.

Oh no! The Tokyo Linux Users Group meeting might be during that
weekend! That changes things. I promised to give a talk on personal
information management, and it’s something I’ve also really been
looking forward to…

Let me e-mail Tomoko to see if we can move the onsen trip. Going for
the Tokyo Linux Users Group thing makes my packing a little bit
easier, because I don’t have to worry about the overnight.
