Off on my AWOL, in a downtown Pittsburgh Kinko's right now. For future reference, a school bus in the parking lot of the hotel you're thinking about staying in is an IMMEDIATE RED FLAG. I went out to Chamber last night and stayed until last call. This morning at 9AM, 100 teenage assholes came shouting their way past my door and dragged their suitcases down the metal stairs right outsite of my door. When I went to get my "free continental breakfast" (coffee and frosted flakes), I had to wait until they all filed through. I should've just stayed upstairs and used the coffeemaker in the room, but I wanted to make them aware of the repercussions of their actions by sitting there half awake and generally dissheveled, sucking coffee and giving them the dagger eyes.

Now, on to Pittsburgh, which is a really pretty town so far. Then DC (probably) for two days, then Cedar Point, then home to start the new job.

Other than the HOLYSHITSTEEPBRAKESGOINGTOFAIL streets and the convoluted freeway interchanges, I love this town!

I used to think "Continental" meant comprehensive or something like that, until I got to see it in action myself :(

Yeah, 9 times out of 10 it means coffee and doughnuts, sometimes you're lucky enough to get cereal, or even the occasional fruit.

I would've offered, but I kind of want time to myself to sort my head out before I start the new job.
