Oh, and we leave in 6ish hours: that's 3am for people who are time-reading-challenged.
Because of this GREAT CONVENIENCE, we are staying at a hotel: the Quality Inn. At least they gave us paper and pens to entertain ourselves with!
( But they kind of wimp out on the pads of paper and pens: the most important part of the visit. The pen was dried up and the pad had ONE PIECE OF PAPER. )
DEFINITION OF SHIT.
Regardless of this great disappointment, the night has been decently awesome. We ate an amazing dinner at an awesome Italian restaurant called Graffiti. It was delicious. Then we had a nap for a few hours. Now I am texting my JEALOUS friends back home and drinking strange tasting tap water. I can tell that this is going to be a good trip.
Tired, but still smiling.
How I feel about the early morning and spending 7 days with my family.
PRE-TRIP RATING: 8 THUMBS UP!
