And What was I Supposed to Remember Again?

Well, I'm here in the hotel after my first day. I'm tired, but there are a couple of reasons why I'm not actually sleeping yet.

Reason number 1. I brought my own pillow. My pillow is made out of memory foam. This memory foam, when left outside in cold weather, tends to harden up. Therefore, my pillow is currently rather rock-like and I need to wait for it to thaw out a little before I use it. You'd think I would have learned after the first time this happened.

Reason number 2. Yours truly forgot a couple of things. First and foremost, I left my Book Port at home on my bed. My nightly fall-asleep entertainment doesn't exist. This will be the first time in almost a year that I haven't had it to use. I brought batteries and my pillow speaker, but no Book Port.

Unfortunately, that's not the only thing I forgot on this here trip. I left without my cell phone charger. Normally, my phone is on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Unfortunately, for the duration of the trip, it will remain off unless I need to make a call. Since it's a new phone, I really don't know the life of the battery, and I need to be able to use it to check my voicemail at work and things. And, I may need it for Friday morning as an alarm clock. I got my clock set in here for tomorrow morning, but I don't know how things will work for tomorrow night yet. So, it may have to be my alarm, which means leaving it on all night Thursday. So, needless to say, I feel like an idiot at the moment.

Oh yes, and let's not forget to mention the fact that this was supposed to be a voice post, but that's not happening either. The number I've been using for voice posting apparently doesn't work anymore, and I need to find a new number, which I didn't exactly feel like doing tonight. So, you got me direct. SMILE!

Other than all this stuff, today was pretty good. I'm extremely tired, and really want to go to bed soon, but I need to wait for my pillow. We made some good contacts today I think, so that was good, and we went to a really great Italian restaurant tonight. They do this really interesting thing there. They serve the traditional Italian bread, but they actually bake garlic. It makes it really soft, and then you spread the clove wedge thing like you would butter. It's amazing, and it's nothing like eating garlic raw. I had a little bit of olive oil and freshly grated cheese. My room isn't much tonight, but there's free wireless, so it'll do. There's a bed, where I am sitting now actually, and that's about it.

Well, my pillow still isn't really all that thawed out, but I'm just extremely tired, and I'm having trouble typing so I think that's about it. If you have my cell number and want to hear my, um, greeting, go ahead and call and leave me a message. If you don't have my cell number and want it, send me an email since I'll most likely be able to check messages over the next couple of days. You know where, and if you don't, look on my profile page. Later peoples!
