I flew back into Portland last night, repacked my bags and now am on route to Los Angeles. This really has been a crazy week of traveling. On that note, my trip to Boston next week got canceled, so I’ll have some time next weekend to relax and work on my quickly approaching speech. That preparation is much needed.

Right now, I am sitting at the Portland airport looking at a massive line in front Starbucks. It’s funny how people complain so much about having to stand in line at the airport. Apparently things are different when you’re waiting for a Latte. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather wait in line at airport security to ensure that I am not attacked by an old lady with her invigorating foot lotion.
