The lap of luxury...

Okay, so the Peabody was lovely, and I hadn't planned to spoil myself again, but the *cheap* conference hotel was booked, so we're stuck with this:

"[Our] sleeping rooms are among the most spacious in the city. Deluxe rooms are tastefully appointed and feature a King Bed, a Queen Bed, or two Double Beds. Although most rooms are non-smoking, a number of designated smoking rooms are available. All rooms feature dressers, armoires, color television, large bathrooms, irons and ironing boards, hairdryers, and Caswell Massey bath products. All guest rooms feature 5 inch Pillow Top Dreamland Featherbeds with Prime, European White Goose Down Comforter and 310 Thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. In addition, all bathrooms are complimented with Spanish, hand polished, Ramora Marble Floors."

Oh, man. Of course, I won't be able to enjoy it quite as much since I'll be sharing the room with a virtual stranger, and will be trying very very hard not to snore and ruin my reputation in the field. Because, of course, scholars do not snore.

You should room with me sometime. Then you’ll be in good snoring company. And everyone outside will think the room contains hibernating bears.

Way cool plan. Watson roomie says she'll look into noise-dampening headphones, if needed.

I thought a ramora was one of those fish that hang on sharks.
