What's another word for pirate treasure?

Why... I think it's booty!

Here's what was in my bags upon return to the USA:

1999 Lingenfelder Riesling, Bird-label
NV Ptomaine des Blagueurs Grenache (selected by Randall Grahm)
1997 Masi Amarone Costasera classico
1997 GWS Napareuli (Saperavi)
NV GWS Khvanchkara (bottled 05.02.01; Aleksandrouli)
NV Berry Bros & Rudd Good Ordinary Claret (50 cl)
1995 Cockburn's Quinta Dos Canais Vintage Port
1996 Tbilvino Gurjaani (Rkatsiteli and Mtsvane)
2000 Ch. de Sours Bordeaux rosé
A small bottle of Dutch gin shaped like a canal house (no. 43 in the KLM collectible series).

Moab Is My Washpot, Schwarzbuch des Kommunismus, Stalinist Architecture, Der Krapfen auf dem Sims, Pink, Jancis Robinson's Wine Tasting Workbook, Die Bibliothek von Sodom, Anton Voyls Fortgang (3rd edition), a very heavy German book on wine, various other books.

A Georgian wine horn, dagger, hat, and ceramic souvenir thing.

A glass from the Stuttgarter Weindorf, broken in transit, thrown away in London.

Yorkshire tea, "Hoss" tea, sample packets of tea that apparently includes gummi bears in the blend.

Gentleman's Relish (2 packets), Branston pickle, finely ground for use in sandwiches. Two types of flapjack. Cookies from the KLM lounge at Schiphol.

11 rolls of film containing approximately 406 images, currently being developed; Web posting should begin on 12 September 2001.

The new Björk CD, and 5 handmade CDs containing the first five issues of the Mille Plateaux MP3 magazine (thanks Samuel!).

One £10 note, and one GEL 1 note. All coins remained in the donation boxes in Heathrow Terminal 4.

For Dan: a presentation box of &eur;-denominated chocolates, as well as a sample size bottle of body wash with a picture of a gingko leaf on it.

Nasty-smelling "botanical" deodorant, body wash, and facial scrub from Boots the Chemist, along with an extra camera battery that only cost £6.99. A bottle of Washday Greens from Lush. Earplugs, cotton swabs, various amenity kits from airlines and hotels.

For Matthew: a can of -----, a --------------, a packet of --------, and ---------. (He hasn't seen any of this yet.)

All kinds of useless receipts, boarding passes, extra postcards, stamps, brochures, ticket stubs, business cards.

Dirty clothes.
