A pretty good way to spend a week

Summary of vacation on its last day

  • Weather: excellent - even including the fabulous desert thunderstorm that just ended. You should hear the birds now! They sound really happy.
  • Hotels: one disappointing--overpriced and service-free. One pretty darn nice, with a charm-your-socks-off little French waiter in the main restaurant and mostly-reliable high-speed internet access.
  • People: owzers and thecaelum, awesome. Classmates: nice enough, with Dirty Card Guy being probably the most interesting. Sadly, I never did get to see the dirty cards.
  • Rental cars: (both, Chrysler Sebring convertibles) pretty, but I'm so glad I don't own one. Because, wimpy. Honest, my 1988 Honda Civic had more pickup. In 2004 when I got rid of it.
  • Coffee: really, it'll be nice to get back to caffeine-ville.
  • Corel course that was the nominal reason for this getaway: really, really good. Tons of new information, great class materials (including a ton of free plugins and extras), outstanding instructor, good facility, nice lunches, wonderful location.
  • Cost: *squeezes eyes shut, refuses to look at bills*
Barring getting lost or in trouble on my way back to the airport at the crack of dawn tomorrow, I think I can put this one in the good column.

What did they have in them for engines? I once had the same thing as my mom or mother in law or something, don't even remember now, and I had more get up and go than she did. ;-)

And no, don't look at the bill. ;-)

I think they have the RC engine (Rental Car).

And they're such the touristmobile here in AZ--I feel so conspicuous! But oh well. It was fun.

Have I mentioned that I love your new icon?

I await your reports--and photographs--from London with great anticipation.
