Feeling the Love!!

Oh do I feel the love tonight!!

The project I am on requires regular travel to our nation's capital. We stay in various hotels and this morning I found out I am in the wrong hotel, totally. Part of my group is out in Maryland, I am in DC. This AM at our opening meeting I was given a gift: an autographed picture of George Takei as Sulu in TOS. He is staying at their hotel, and the group ran into him, remembered my fascination with Trek, and printed off this picture from his website, which he graciously signed, personalized to me. They of course have a picture of the group with George to validate the encounter.

Let me tell ya, after the week and weekend I have had this was the best present I have gotten in a very long time.

Thanks guys! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

How you can you end up staying at the totally wrong hotel?

I go to various FTC-related things in DC from time to time, usually end up staying at the Holiday Inn near Capitol Hill, have ended up there numerous times.

A good friend of mine always responds to good news with, "Cool beans!" I never figured out how that phrase became a synonym for "good" or "great." Oh, Takei just announced he and his partner are getting married in Cali! That's really cool beans too!

"Cool beans" indeed Mike!!

Al - the right hotel was Takei's hotel!
