The Schmubbleyew

I'm in Atlanta for a few days at a small conference being hosted by Coca Cola, Live Positively. I've had the chance to connect with some old friends, new friends, and, presumably, make new enemies. More on the cool things I'm learning later.

We're staying at a hotel downtown that rhymes with schmubbleyew, and since Jen lives a mere 2 hours away, instead of 5 days away, she came to meet me for dinner. The hotel is so fancy, the shower is see through.

I am standing in the bedroom. You can see through the shower to the water closet. This is handy because I always hate not being able to see through the shower. The hotel is SO fancy that there are no doors on the shower. This would be perfect for a family vacation, is what I'm saying. If I could give the place one piece of feedback, I'd tell them that if you can see the TV through the shower, the remote should also be waterproof. That's a no brainer, hotel Science people.

I had to lighten the picture so you could sort of see Jen, because the room is dark gray, purple, and lavender. Good for hiding stains, I would guess. Or blood. Kid friendly!

Jen and I went to dinner at the Watershed. They served a bacon caramel popcorn ball, which we had to try.

It's been about 12 years since I've been to Atlanta. I always forget how beautiful the town is: rolling hills, giant trees, graceful homes, Waffle Houses...

I will take thousands of see-through showers if I can go out to dinner with you again. (But I will not spend $10 on eight honor bar pringles.)

And Gone With The Wind references everywhere. As it should be.
