the rest of the best

- getting an upgrade last night at my favourite Vancouver hotel, to the executive large one-bedroom suite

- finding out that there's a woman at Berlin Polytechnic who has the same last name as me, who also stayed at the hotel last night

- the sweet little guy, who ran the breakfast buffet at the Seattle hotel, telling the Resident Offspring about Madonna. "I just loooove her. She's 52? Does not look it!"

- buying a tall and getting a grande

- watching the Slightly Retarded Kitten scamper around in the yard meowing, then repeatedly run up to the screen door to demand a belly rub

less than good - the guy next to me on the plane who obviously did not know the rules about the person in the middle seat getting the arm rests

Nothing nicer than an upgrade to luxury! And a grande! Oooh, better remember my Starbuck's gift card...

Is six dozen cookies enough? :D See you soon!

Six dozen? Seriously? That should be more than enough, my dear! Leave some room in that suitcase for a change of clothes!

i did not know the rule about the middle seat. I always try to get an aisle seat and end up leaning more that way.

I didn't know about the middle seat rule either. Noted.

I'm staying at the Sunset next week - a free upgrade would be nice! :)

I always go for an aisle seat when travelling along, Kelly, but somehow always manage to get roped into taking the crappy middle one when traveling with a companion. Hence the knowledge about all the middle seat etiquette.

Just mention my name at the Sunset, Al. I think I get frequent sleeper points there.
I love that place.
