back home in Portland!

9 1/2 hour flight from London to Vancouver. I didn’t end up with first class this time but I did get business class so that’s good for the leg room that I don’t really need and a free news paper with my choice of contries that have crossword puzzles that I’m no good at.

it sort of messes with my brain that my flight left London at 11am and got into Vancouver at 12:30pm. It looks like a 1.5 hour trip but I crossed 8 time zones and got a major headache. Customs was easy except for hte gumpy lady looking at passports who was super slow and didn’t ask me any questions, just scanned my passport and stamped it. On the plane I realized that the only things i brought back were candy and Doctor Who related stuff for Paul.

Met Paul at the airport… in the bar and had a glorious Northwest hopped ale. We tried to do the crossword puzzle but just ended up talking. We came home and I showed him zines and photos and then we were off to our bed. It is so nice to not be sleeping in a sleeping bag and to sleep next to a warm body.

This morning I am up early and not sure of what to conquer first: Surmoutning mail pile, jungle of a yard, a few e-mails that I’ll have to really think to answer, or just lay in bed a little longer and feel situated in my room again. Anyway, I’m glad to be home. i’ll tell more stories of my adventures later.


Zinewiki, wake up time, tickets and lolcats

did you know that ZineWiki is back up? It is true! I spent a little time last night egotistically editing my page. I’m not sure how some of the stuff got there. I always tend to forget some of the things I have done so it is good for other people to fill it out to remind me. So, even if you don’t want to edit zinewiki you should check it out and see what’s there.

Everyday I get up and look at the clock and frequently it is exactly 9:00am. If it is not 9 is is within 10 minutes of 9. It has been happening for months and sort of weirds me out. This morning I bought my train ticket from London to Poirtiers. it sort of makes me fell official about my trip.

Here’s a photo where I made one of Marc’s cats into a lolcat. I couldn’t help it! We were trying to do a crossword puzzle and Jackie kept trying to steal our pen!

Sorry jackie. You asked for it!

Sorry jackie. You asked for it!

I’m not a cat person but I do enjoy these cats. I’ll write more about them sometime but right now I have coffee to roast and orders to pack.
