The Baker has had one of the worst trips on record. He went to Eugene for his daughter's high school graduation. After the driver's license incident and headaches which resulted far into the night from that - the inn had no rooms x's 262 - it was a weekend full of ridiculous inconveniences topped off by what transpired today. He caught the train to Portland and thanks to a drawbridge on "up" and the MAX stopping at every. single. stop between downtown and the airport he missed his flight. That sucks but oh well, there's another flight via Seattle in an hour.
The Baker heads to new gate where a flight is boarding. "That flight will board after this one, sir." Baker sits down at gate. New flight boarding and the Baker checks in. "I'm sorry sir, that flight just left." The Baker heads to the bar.....
The Baker sits down next to a couple at the bar and starts looking at the wine list. Once the bartender talks him into buying a bottle he is introduced to Joel Gott...and since he's now chatting with Joel Gott he buys a Joel Gott 2008 Cab Sav, on recommendation of said Joel Gott.
The Baker drank one glass and brought the rest home. We're it drinking now. And it's good.
Meanwhile, a Mile High....
I got to thrift again today, by myself. Happy times. The loot is below, both days. All total it was right around $60.
The green beans had to be eaten lest they become vermicompost food in a day or two. I sauted them with a little red onion, garlic and pine nuts. The ramen is simple five for a buck ramen and it's all topped with a healthy dose of Sriracha.
Perfect for what is still a very chilly day - although the sun did finally decide to shine.
