I'm currently in a mystery town in Georgia. I had to fly to Charlotte, NC to Tallahassee, FL, then drive about an hour to get here. Left home at around 11:30am, and got to my hotel at around 8:30pm local time. Whew!
I'm curious if there's a big gambling problem in Tallahassee - I passed by several billboards that read "1-800-ADMIT-IT", a hotline for gambling addicts.
Got lost along the way to my hotel, asked the man at the gas station for the street that I had missed and he had no idea what I was talking about. I started to get worried, but then he asked the other guy who worked there who was like, "Oh, that street is just one block over..." Ironically, I was only several blocks away from my hotel.
Have I mentioned that I'm a hotel snob? I don't even know if this place can even be called a hotel. All the other "nice" hotels were booked (Somewhere, GA must be pretty popular!) so I had to settle for this one. I'm surviving. The wi-fi for the hotel doesn't reach my room so I'm in the hotel breakfast area typing this.
My hotel is next to a Restaurant. Seriously, that's the name of the place. Restaurant. It's like those black and white generic cans of corn you see in the supermarket. The ones that say "Corn", and that's it. Just "Restaurant".
I was booked a handicap room. It's got a lot of bars and stuff in the bathroom. Pretty interesting. Too bad I can't use the handicap spot that's right in front of the room!
I'm tired! Ben woke up at 4am this morning and just would not go back to sleep. I was sitting there, working on my laptop at 6 in the morning watching him play around with his cars and draw in his art pad. I sat him down on the couch to watch the Mickey Mouse Club, and when I looked up at around 8:30am, the poor thing was passed out. Didn't wake up again until around 11am. I called my in-laws who are watching him while I'm gone - looks like he fell asleep at 6pm. I have to laugh inside because I KNOW he's going to be wide awake in the middle of the night. I told my mother in law to catch her Z's now because she's not getting them in the morning!
Anyway....tomorrow should be interesting.Posted by Yano at September 19, 2007 11:31 PM
