Friends, I’ve left Portland, OR. I’ll be posting more pictures of the trip and stories of Karaoke in the near future. The day of departure was a very sad day. But in the meantime…
My travels led me to experience a few of the most exciting travel experiences a traveler can experience.*
Let’s take a look at these travel highlights.
1. A red-eye flight with a seat next to a woman with a chaordic elbow.
It was remarkable. With undeniable regularity, just as I began to fall asleep a random elbow would fly out and bash me in the ribs, or the arm, or the face. well, not the face. But certainly the rest of those places.
2. Shockingly inconsistent hotel shower temperature adjustment
My fingers actually went prune before I got the water to an acceptable temperature. I’d try to coax the hot water to be more of a team player and then BANG! HOT ROASTING STEAM BURNING FIRE BUCKETS!
3. Ohio is a black hole of captivity!
I thought I’d be coming home Wednesday night. Now it’s looking like Thursday night, or Friday day is more likely. This is a bummer. Especially because this weekend leaves little to look forward to. In fact I might go so far as to suggest that next weekend will be the opposite of this past weekend. Instead of amazing music, fun people, delicious food, and relaxation there will be midterms, homework, papers, final exams, and class. A lot of class. and okay… maybe a little bedazzling. I ordered a bedazzler to create the Fibonacci Sequins t-shirt. Hmm. maybe the weekend will find redemption yet. Cross your fingers.
