Things to do in Rock Springs, Wyoming...

1. Find a hotel that doesn't look like a glorified mobile home. Make sure you pay lots of money for your room--more than you would pay, say, at New York City's finest, because your hotel owner knows your options are slim to none, and you'll pay whatever is asked.
2. Work, because you work online and you can, but also because you need to earn money to pay for that fancy room you're in. Oh, and internet connection is free--use as much as you can.
3. Eat Fritos from the vending machine because you're bored and you don't want to work right now. Don't worry about the fact that you detest Fritos.
4. Walk to the fitness room and wish you had brought appropriate clothing so you could go jogging...or swimming...or get buff playing on all those fun machines.
5. Eat mini-donuts from the vending machine. Don't worry about the fact that you hate mini-donuts, especially when they're covered with waxy chocolate coating.
6. Chat with Ambrosia online. Whine about current conditions. Wish you were going to her house tonight because she was going to make really yummy chocolate cake for dessert.
7. Eat M&Ms from the vending machine. Don't worry about the fact that you really dislike M&Ms, even the peanut ones.
8. Call Therapist. Wish you were at your appointment. Feel aggravated.
9. Eat a Butterfinger from the vending machine. Don't worry about the fact that you really don't want it. Eat it anyway.
10. Check blogs and play Scrabulous online because Therapist is supposed to call soon and you don't want to start working if you're going to be interrupted.
11. Try to eat the banana you swiped from the breakfast area in the lobby. Throw it away when you find crunchy things in it. Drink the hot chocolate you swiped, instead.
12. Notice the down comforter on your bed. Decide that a nap sounds good. Take one.

I hope the roads open soon. I don't want to live here for the rest of my life. It's too cold, and way too expensive... be continued...

  1. We were sad not to get to see you this weekend. Although it's probably good that we didn't get to, so I didn't give you this stupid cold.

    I'm glad you made it home safely.
