Ellen: Spring Break Staycation
Have you ever had a staycation? This approach to vacation time has its advantages.
Ellen DeGeneres noticed her audience was full of excited vacationers enjoying Spring Break. She said that she and Portia De Rossi recently had their own Spring Break Staycation.
“A Staycation basically is where you stay at home and enjoy some quiet time while everyone who normally bothers you goes away,” she said.
Ellen said she is a fan of staying at home, and I agree with her. She said that packing is a very stressful part of the process. She pointed out that it shouldn’t be complicated, but it always turns into an ordeal.
She said that we are all tempted to pack too much stuff, even things you know you probably won’t wear during the trip.
Ellen: What To Pack for Vacation
As you imagine what you’ll be up to on vacation, you could also be tempted to overpack in case something comes up. Ellen said this was the case for one of her writers, who never works out.
“She went running one time, ‘cause she was trying to flag down a food truck,” Ellen said, but she packed a matching sweatsuit and running shoes so she could jog on the beach.
I can’t stand over-packing either. Ellen noted that we picture ourselves as completely different people when we imagine ourselves on vacation. Even after we throw in extra unnecessary clothes, then we start looking around for random junk to fill up the rest of the suitcase.
“I don’t know why we go crazy packing,” Ellen concluded. “All we really need is a bathing suit and a floppy hat and a fanny pack.”
