Found Portland

, posted: 22-Jul-2007 17:49

we arrived in portland - despite having a hold up with the security on a *DOMESTIC* flight deciding they need to wipe down every item in our bags. WTF is with them opening my tampon packs to wipe them down? fucked up. then, the flight. It's over booked by 50 people, and we're one of the 50. aparently this is standard. Airlines in the US sell 50% more tickets than there are seats on the plane. A whole lotta swearing at United Airlines later, we do get a seat in the "Exit" row, which means listening to training on how to open the emergency door, and answering a question. Now I'm in Portland Oregon. The beer is good. The weather is warm. I found highspeed internet. and i'm a little homesick.
