We're here! crashrose is out and about, hanging out with a friend of hers. I stayed in the hotel to make some phone calls and try to set up some plans. I've already spoken to alannabear and good friend P/S. I also left a rambling, pointless message for fasterthanlight... Sorry, FTL.
If you're in the area, give me a call or stop by! :)
Last night, the Ramada at which we stayed had free wireless access. As the kids say, w00t! Now this Marriott has free high-speed, wired but welcome, especially since they provide a cable. (We had brought our own, just in case, but I left it in the car.)
It's good this place has free popcorn, internet, and coffee because the customer service is not quite what I remembered... We made a reservation weeks ago (maybe even in excess of one month's time), but they didn't have any one-bedrooms when we got here. They also angered an obnoxious family in line ahead of us by not having any non-smoking rooms available. What the heck is the point of a reservation if they don't bother reserving anything for you? The studio is cheaper and just as nice; it's just the principle of the thing. Meh, whatever.
Peets-borg! Peets-borg! That is all.
