We almost missed our flight this morning, for a variety of reasons (lateness, no gas, getting pulled over) and we only just barely made it in time! Fortunately, because we were the last people to board the plane we got to sit in the very front so we had tons of leg space.
Ellen picked us up from the airport and drove us to the bus station, and then we took the bus from Eugene to Portland.
We met up with Aaron at a place called Stumptown Coffee and we chatted for a super long time. (Crystal got bored and went and got oysters while he and I caught up re: high school). Then Aaron, Crystal and I met up with Brycen and we went to dinner at a Cajun restaurant called Montage, which was delicious. (Sidenote: we met the craziest old drunk toothless guy who gave us priceless pearls of wisdom. Examples: "Do you know what's the best thing about being good? Being great. Do you know what life's all about? Being respectful to yourself. Why beat yourself up when someone else will do it for you?!") Anyway at the restaurant they made our leftovers into tin foil animals! (Crystal got a squirrel, I got a snail).
Right now we're hangin' out at Brycen's, because that is where we are staying. Tomorrow Aaron is going to show us around his neighborhood area (Hawthorne) and we're gonna do some shopping and then hit up the Interpol situation.
Anyway, it's time for bed. This has been the longest day in the world!
