- after they clean the room, why do they put the shower curtain on the outside of the shower? i never understood this. there are two curtains in order to keep the water inside the tub, yet when i get in in the morning, kinda groggy, it takes me a moment to realize i'm flooding the floor.
- again with the tub - why do they leave the drain plugged after cleaning? once again, it takes me a few moments to realize the tub is not draining.
- after cleaning, why do they reset the alarm clock and turn it on? for the past three days, i have had to turn off the alarm clock as i would rather wake up on my own.
- there is a strange community at the hotel. not bad, but a little interesting. since this is a residence inn, people stay here for long periods of time. so, they have a pool, a basketball court, the rooms have kitchenettes etc. they also have a bar-b-que for guests. it is strange for me to see random guests throwing stuff on the barby. in the mornings is breakfast and the evenings, they offer "happy hour." normally, i'm not surprised by this offering of free beer and wine. it's nice. what surprised me here was the offering of spagetti and meatballs too. or taco salad night. or raviolli and dinner rolls or..... i could go on because the menu is on my fridge. seriously, monday through thursday, someone really wouldn't need to go out for food except for lunch. unless... they took a couple plates in the evening and put it in the fridge for the next day's lunch. and on thursdays, go back for 3 or 4 helpings to make it through the weekend. crazy i tell ya.
good night all.

in the view, we see some hills that are actually not built up. further, there are these valleys that are just amazing. whomever is doing planning in this area is not just putting in track mcmansions, they are thinking about the greenspaces also.
the hotel is fine. as i stated, i think there is an elephant close by, but that's ok. my bedjumping is probably a bit disturbing to others as well. i'm close to the freeway, so in the evenings when i'm here reading email and such after class, military helicopters fly over from base to base. they are so low and loud, the room shakes a little. kinda crazy.
My head still hurts after yesterday's brutal class. It was all theory and history. Some of the info was review for me- stuff you have learned throughout the years. Other stuff wasn't necessarilly new, but it was explained so it now makes sense. Looking forward to today. It will be even meatier. I had a dream that I returned to work early because I believed the class was boring. My peers didn't like that. What does that tell me? PAY ATTTENTION!

My hotel is fine. I thing an elephant is above me, but oh well. I kept waking through the night thinking, where's Anna? I had dreams I was sleepwalking and had ended up in a separate room.
I am now in class. The stack of books is daunting. And it is a room of goattees. When will computer geeks realize the goatee is overdone.
more later. Gotta pay attention now.
