The warm weather isn't all its cracked up to be
I always envied those women who traveled the world for their jobs: London, San Francisco, Hong Kong. I don't think I want to be one of them anymore.

I am going on my fifth day of being hotel bound, and I miss home. I miss Bug laying stretched out on my chest while watching television, leaving my apartment with actual keys, being able to get ice without primping and putting on a bra.

I miss Court TV. And my shower, the kind that doesn't have a wispy curtain that sticks to your n*ked parts when wet. I miss vegetables. And my friends. And my little sweet car that just failed inspection. I miss home.

Although this maid thing is really quite nice.

What kind of hotel are you trapped in if they don't even have basic cable???

I'm wondering how long it would take for me to get sick of hotel life. It would depend where I was, I guess.


I'd LOVE a maid, send her on over!

The whole shower curtain thing? That grosses me out beyond all repair.

They don't replace/clean those as often as they should... eeeeeek, there are so many germies from unknown people on there. I need a shower just thinking about it!

Hotel food is yummy, but not the best for you. H'agreed.

You'll be home soon, honey! Maybe you can bring the maid with you?? Persuade her with your veggies, friends and car!

Wait a second. Hotels almost always have potatoes. And potatoes ARE vegetables, Kris. And really, there's no end to the permutations and combinations available from that fine, fine tuber: home fries, hash browns, french fries, mashed potatoes, potato skins ... and it goes with EVERYTHING, and at every meal!

If it really bothers you, try compensating with days upon days of carrots and broccoli when you get home.

Truly these are the potato days.

It cracks me up that you put on a bra and primp before getting ice in your hotel, but not in DC. Classic.

Come home soon!

You clearly are in the wrong hotel. Remember Eloise? Now that girl did hotel living right!

I work for cheap.
Mrs. J would be happy to send me out, and then she can chill with you while I cook French Toast in your apron....again...

travel with orange flavor metimucil, offsets the lack of veggies and mixes with vodka..

Oh, car failed DC inspection? Sucks. Mine has failed two separate times but always passed on the return visit, so hopefully yours will too! the bad news is you have to wait in that line at the Half Street station again. I always get lost going there. Good thing it's only once every two years.

After the theatre tour ended, a fellow touree warned me about the towels.

When you're not on tour, you do your own.

Man, I miss fresh towels.

Didn't we already know florida wasn't all it was cracked up to be?

Yeah, there's a lot of things about a grown-up job and grown-up stuff that I thought would rock as a kid (which, subsequently, did not.) Meetings were number one on my list. Meetings?!? Where you don't have to actually do work for a few hours, and you sit around and listen to someone talk, and sometimes pizza is provided? Sign me up! Travel for work was the same. I get to eat room service all the time and maybe spend after hours at the hotel bar making friendly-like with strange ladies? Wicked! Sadly, by and large, work travel and meetings are pants (which is to say: no good.)

Aww! They're probably missing you like crazy too. But it's almost Friday!

Whenever we're on our way home from being out of town, I always start saying "We're almost home, babies!" about 15 minutes away from home. Weird, maybe. But makes me feel better.

I'd like to have my own minibar in my house that someone else has to restock.

But $5 beers would definitely leave me with no walking 'round money. And that's not counting the $8 Toblerones.

I'm pretty sure we have Court TV in Florida.
