It was actually a week, but I like the movie reference too much. A pictorial essay of my trip to Lakewood for training. Obviously, I don't get out much, so this was highly unusual! Mostly pics, and some of my fave FB exchanges. Pics and FB courtesy of my smart phone, since I didn't take my real camera, and I don't own a laptop. FB exchanges have been redacted to protect my friends who don't relish the idea of Internet Celebrity. I LOVE the word, redact.
|Before: My duffel bag, from under my bed.|
|After: I had to vacuum it, and then wipe it off.|
|Before: My pile of laundry.|
|After: Laundry did!|
|My living room.|
|My entertainment center. Cable!|
|This bed is the size of a football field.|
I usually sleep with my socks on, and I usually kick them off in the night. In a bed the size of a football field, it was really difficult to find them in the morning! How did they get all the way over there?!?
|My room number. If I was very clever, I would have lined it up, so the light reflecting would be at the very front of the train, and it would look like the train had its headlight on!|
The hallway. One: have hoteliers never seen The Shining?!? Omg! Quit using red in hallways! So creepy! Two: speaking of creepy. Nothing feels quite as creepy, as taking a picture in an empty public hallway. Except when you hear a door, and realize the hallway isn't empty, and you look like a total creep. If you're with a friend, you can pretend it's funny or crazy-funny. When you're alone, it just feels uber-creepy.

|Olive Garden Salad.|
|Olive Garden Tiramisu.|
|Applebee's Oriental Chicken Salad and maybe a Maple Blondie.|
|IHOP BLT, Fresh Fruit, and Chocolate something.|
|I knew there was a mountain here somewhere, but I never saw it until I was driving away!|
