Airport update

Got a call a few minutes ago from Dad that yep, he and Mom made it through Chicago O'Hare despite the weather and indeed arrived at PDX about 10:15 last night, and their Volvo got them safely home. Mom's even at work.

Meanwhile, I have heard that if you're going to Hell you have to change planes in Atlanta, but did you know that the zip code for O'Hare is 60666? Ooo. Creepy.

Gift

This is smile-causing: I know now that Poppy Z. Brite (docbrite) and husband Chris deBarr indeed received my package and have the gift magnets on their fridge: little fake "Crossing" signs, one with a pelican (since Poppy's a birder) and one with a cockroach (since hey, it's New Orleans).

Yay! One less thing for me to be neurotic about! ;-)
