Made It!

Well I went to the airport in Detroit yesterday for my flight out to Portland. When I got up to the counter Brian Erickson, the man behind the United counter said, "Your flight's for tomorrow". My face and spirits sunk. The woman on the phone the day before told me that my flight was for Thursday.

Brian said "Let me see what I can do", and was somehow able to get me a non-stop flight to Portland on Northwest Airlines. Seems some guy in first class was unable to go because of work and I got his seat. Sweet! Jonny 5 chastised me for not taking advantage of the free booze and just having the sodie pop, but my flight was like at 9am. As I was walking away from the counter to run to the plane a reporter for the local Detroit NBC station interviewed me about how the Blizzard in Denver affected my travel plans for Christmas. They used a SOT from me on their noon show, and someone at work told me that the VO of me made the national NBC News Channel feeds. Funny.

The flight was OK but I probably shouldn't have watched that DVD of Mission Impossible 3 on the flight though. Like I've said before I'm not to particularly found of flying and every time there was an intense scene and we'd hit some turbulence or drop a little in altitude I'd panic a little.

When I got to Portland Morgan and Ella where waiting for me by the gate. Then we were interviewed by KATU, the Portland ABC affiliate. That story turned out to be a full on package of how we had a "Family Holiday Miracle" with me actually getting a flight out before Christmas and all. Heh...again funny. It's weird to be on the other side of the camera.

Well, I'm just glad I'm here. Let's hope that the trip back is just uneventful.


Ohh, on a side note. Gus Van Sant was arrested for DUII while I'm in Portland. Sweet!
