Up and About

I "slept in" until 8:30 AM this morning. Unless I order room service ($$$) on Friday-Sunday, I don't think I'll be able to laze about like that if I'm going to be at 10 AM business meetings, what with having to set up our recordings and all that.

With internet service at $13/day in the room, as I mentioned yesterday, I don't expect to pay for it every day I'm here. Whether I'll be able to upload videos of the Business Meetings while I'm here is rather doubtful, but we'll see what sort of other connections we'll have available to us around here. I might manage to make a low-resolution copy where you would at least have the sound if not very good pictures.

Today Lisa and I are going to the Field Museum, but we're going to try and not wear ourselves out. My pedometer says I walked 28K steps yesterday, although of course that's hugely overstated due to the train vibration. I'm pretty sure it was over 12K, though, given the walk over to Greektown and back for dinner. We won't be able to afford that much time off site for most of the time we're here, of course.

I'm not sure when I'll be back online again. Darn these high-end hotels and their overpriced services! Lisa says, and I agree, that we wanted the convenience of location (the convention hotel), but we'd rather be staying in an Holiday Inn Express -- included in-room internet, refrigerator, microwave oven, and breakfast.
