worse off than me..

there was i surfing the net and feeling all sorts of sorry for myself

when i came across this...
 


this isn't cute...


look at those sad little eyes.  this poor little guy is standing there all wet and shivering and thinking; "and you think you got troubles?"

i may be highly un-enlightened, but since when do bunnies need bubble baths?

somebody get that poor little man a heated towel and a carrot!





third time charmed...

i am currently at a conference which i don't have to attend...

in a beautiful area...

in a beautiful hotel...



with a key card that wouldn't work anywhere but my room...

without anything/one to clean up after (heaven. i'm in heaven...) i've had time to finish reading one of the books i started in the spring and realize via the second that (like it or not) i am responsible for creating my own chaos. (hmmm... that must also mean that i am indeed in control of my own destiny -those of you who have consistently smacked me with that bat now have my permission to cheer.)

anyway....

this morning i wandered to the pool for a swim only to find my room key card wouldn't open the door...

so i wandered back to the lobby desk to inquire. 

the desk clerk had the consierge (i love that word!) walk me back to the pool where he asked me to try my key card in the lock (because i obviously have no idea how to correctly use the key card - never mind i've already been here 2.5 days already) and guess what?!?

it didn't work...  red light.  no go.  locked.

HA!!

he said; "huh..." in a very puzzled manor and let me in with his key...

i had a nice swim and came back. 

after lunch, because it is quite costly to have internet in your room and i wanted to research some items for work (yes seriously), i wandered down to the hotel's free business internet sanctum and inserted my key card...

red light.  sorry.  not valid.  denied.  game over.  go home.

so i wandered to the lobby desk to inquire...

the same desk clerk was there.  she must have read it on my face because in a quite surprised tone she said;  "again?!?! i am so sorry! that just isn't right.  let me just get you a new key card."

and when i inserted the new key card...

*bing*!  green light.  go.  you may enter here.

i was in...

however, after i settled my behind at an empty computer, every time i pulled up a page it closed and some sort of ACCESS DENIED warning popped up though i am fairly sure the guy on the next computer was surfing porn...  (go figure)

after the umpteenth attempt up came a page asking me to log in with the hotel code...

and i wandered to the lobby desk to inquire... 

"um...."

"seriously?"  she said after i explained; "there is no code..." 

this time didn't bother the consierge she brought me back to the computer and tried to pull up a page herself but the computer was having none of it...

"huh..." she said in a quite puzzled manor.  "this should not be happening." she looked toward the lobby desk,scooted very close to me and scribbled something on a small piece of paper and stuck it in my hand; "you didn't get this from me." she said. "but this log in will give you free internet access in your room for the duration of your stay..."

free hot breakfast in the morning... 
free snacks and drinks in the evening...
free interenet access in my room...

some times life does indeed bring you exactly what you need.

and i would be wise to remember that!  ;)





  

  

the eolist petite suite

oh yeah!  somebody knows me quite well....




no doubt Max and Roth had a hand in this design....

*calls for the waiter*


filler up Rosie!

coffee...

don't drink it.

do drink it.

don't drink it.

the commandant my mother said it stunts your growth and turns your hair dark
- stretching in at 4'11" and being a former toe head tells me this might be true in some cases...  (damn it!)

but just now i heard the last news i may ever read on this matter (because i like this news the bestest)

 from Yahoo Shine's Top 10 Superfoods comes this statement (and if you read it on line in print it must be true right?)

Rejoice! Your morning cup of joe is healthy. Experts on an American Society for Nutrition panel recently concluded that drinking three to five eight-ounce cups a day lowers your risk of Type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, and colon and liver cancers. "Among other things, the antioxidants in coffee protect your cells and DNA from damage," Bowden says. "Coffee seems to increase antioxidants in the blood, too."
Bonus benefits: Women who drink at least six cups a day are less likely to develop high blood pressure, revealed a 2005 study by Harvard scientists. 


to this i say; filler up Rosie! it's gonna be a good day!
