The recent trip had a few memorable hotel-related incidents: room mixups due to a reservation booked by one of our party for the wrong night (and subsequent cancellation by the hotel), accusations by an angry Spanish hotel clerk of possible orgies (long, long story there, and JUST NOT TRUE!), and extra fees for air conditioning […]
I arrived home tonight with suitcases in hand (woohoo!). After the conference, spent a few days in Barcelona and one night in Madrid. Had much fun but happy to be back home with my dog and friends.

What do you expect. So, continuing from where […]
I’m slowly making progress adding books to my LibraryThing account: 160 entered so far. What’s fun is seeing how the tag cloud is developing. Hmm… I seem to have a lot of books that I’ve tagged “sex” – really, I’m not a pervert!
