it's safe now, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. I know you were all waiting on tenderhooks to see if I could pull off finding lodging on the cheap...well, I did. (bwahahahahaha)

Finalizing details with arrival and such tomorrow, but as of right now I gots me a nice little pad in a finished basement. Complete with fridge, microwave, bed, shower AND it's close to all the transit I could want or need.

Yep, I'm one resourceful chick. Eat your hearts out, lol.

So in just a little over a week and a half I'll be dropping onto Texas soil for a brief (VERY brief) visit, then onward to Oregon (go west, young...er...well, go west). Any Portlanders dropping by feel free to point me in the direction of a good coffee house (nyuk, nyuk).

HJ, Cyg...I'll wave at ya from the airport...I promise!

Now back to our not-so-regular schedule (schedule said like the British with the whole funky ssshhced thing).

Are ya freakin' over the whole swine flu thing like the WHO? Just wondering...I don't really have an opinion on it yet, too early...but I tend to err on the side of "we ain't seen nothing yet" just cause I know that the numbers are probably higher than they even think/know/guess...not everyone goes running to the doctor when they start getting sick, some can't afford it (ME!!) and some have a massive fear of doctors. Should be interesting, non?, to see how this plays out...containment is a goner, too late...prevention, fat chance because this puppy is new and a mutant (not the hot kind like Wolverine or Cyclops either). Just gonna keep an eye on this one, 'bout all one can do at this point.

Well, that's it for the night folks...gotta pull the bread out of the oven and spend a little time sippin' some ginger tea (just about have this cold licked). Catch ya tomorrow...maybe!

Be sure and bring your layers. I live in the central part of Oregon and have seen it go from 20 to 70 in mere hours. Also bring a wind/rain type jacket. It is snowing here as I write. I hope you have a great time. Its a beautiful city. PDX is easy to get around.

Have Fun!!

Thanks HJ...at least one of us had faith, lol.

Jen~ I thought as much. Can't find a decent rain coat around here though so I'll have to suffer through with my windbreaker and some fleece...unless by some miracle they (whoever they are) happen to realize that it does rain here too. Thanks for the well wishes...I'm pretty sure I'm going to love it so much I won't want to come back!!

I reckon this "swine flu" is like most other bugs. It'll knock the very young, very old, and already sick on their keisters, but the rest of us won't even get a sniffle. I reckon your screamers will fare just fine as you let 'em run amok (ha ha) as kids used to do. Smearin' Bactine on every freakin' paper cut, along with "sanitizing" every square inch our kiddos might come in contact with has weakened our young'uns' immune systems......
