Holiday Travel

One flight down, one to go. I’m sitting in JFK, waiting to get on my flight to Portland. I might actually make it home for Christmas! Now I’m off to find the airport Dunkin’ Donuts!

Bonus: Expect more photo heavy posts, now that I’m a Flickr PRO user! You can all thank Ashlinn for that and this.


Friends, you know how I feel about Dunkin’ Donuts. They are a true East Coast company that strives to delivery coffee and donuts that blue collar Americans want. I wanted to share with you the first commercial from Dunkin’ Donuts new ad campaign that stops tip-toeing around the point. Dunkin’ Donuts coffee is much better than Starbucks, and Americans agree. The actual survey was done in Boston, New York, Chicago, Seattle and L.A. and Dunkin Donuts came out on top with 54%.

“But You Just Stopped Sucking”

That was the reaction I got from one of the guys I am working for when he found out I was leaving for Seattle. This is also probably news to you guys as well. Portland is great, and I am enjoying my time here, but I applied for and received a position at a cool grip and lighting rental company in Seattle. Shortly after this, he gave me a $50 gift card for a restaurant in Beaverton. He said I was the only person cheap enough to travel 25 minutes for a free meal (and it’s probably true.)
Regardless of the new job, the real reason I came here has to do with two things.
1. There is a Dunkin’ Donuts here…There are none in Portland. I’m not making this up. It’s fact. You can’t just make up facts!
2. There’s an underwater Denny’s restaurant…or at least that’s what this Google Map is trying to tell me.
If an underwater 24 hour restaurant can survive in this city, than I am meant to be here.
Other bonuses are the huge room in the house I just moved in to, the REI flagship store, my 1.7 mile commute, and the Xbox 360 that was already here, ready for me to play it.
Ashlinn helped me find furniture around Seattle to set up my new room. I got a desk for $1, a free shelf, and a plastic mat to put underneath my bike (it’ll be wet from the Seattle rain!) I also got a brand new free tire, so I am using it as my desk chair:

That’s all I can tell you about Seattle for now. Once I get a little more settled in I can probably relay some better stories about it. Until then…
