No Phone This Weekend

Arriving at PDX, I turned on my phone to check for messages. To my annoyance, I found that I can't hear anything. From the messages on the display, it looks to me like the phone thinks that the headset is plugged in, and has thus disabled the handset. But I left the headset behind in California, so the phone is useless for the weekend. I can take it back to the Verizon store (again!) because it's covered by a warranty, but for the duration of this weekend, I am without a mobile phone, which is unfortunate, particularly this morning as I was expecting Lisa to call me -- or at least leave a message -- when she leaves Mehama to drive up to Portland.

Although I had to take an early-morning flight for cost reasons, there was no need to get her out of bed early to fight commute traffic. I'm sitting here at PDX having a relatively leisurely breakfast and don't expect her here until noon. But checking my voice-mail is going to be a lot more annoying (and expensive) today.
