Oi! There is a reason why 2.5 out of 5 star hotels are rated that level. This is a simple hotel (Howard Johnsons in a small New York State town in Long Island) and it’s cheap. The shower is in the bedroom. I mean literally, it’s in the wall in the bedroom while the toilet is in the bathroom with a 2nd sink outside the bathroom. I suspect the hotel was built in the late 70s or thereabouts and it shows on the wear-n-tear. I had to leave the fan running since it drowned out the sounds of voices in the courtyard. The nicer hotels were completely booked so I’m stuck with staying here but I only need to stay here until Thursday. I won’t be on the road again until early October.
I feel a bit tired but that was my own fault for staying up last night late mucking about in a variety of things. I think part of it was still being somewhat on Pacific time and it’s just now sorting itself out. When I did finally fall asleep I slept soundly, I have to admit. Tonight, however, I’ll probably use a sleeping aid and get to sleep by 10-11 just so I can have a solid 7 hours or so. I haven’t found too many crawling things but that may be because I’m on the 2nd level of the hotel (perhaps motel is a better word). The one nice thing is that I seem to be the only person with a laptop here so I get pretty much exclusive use of the internet (which is free). A definite plus. Although perhaps not as needed as much.
After contemplating it for a while, I have resigned as tech guru of Butch-Femme.com. In recent months, it had been overwhleming and because I tend not to say no to helping I felt like I was taking too much on. People often aren’t aware of how much energy and effort can go into being a tech type person whether online or in person. I very enjoyed spending that energy because I knew it would help people enjoy their experience online but I had reached a point where I wasn’t enjoying it and wasn’t enjoying my time on Butch-Femme.com. I’ve also decided not to go to the Bash this year, again for financial reasons. I know that the holidays are around the corner and will cost a bit so better to save for that for now.
Anyways, I better get to being productive and head out.
