My kind of swank

Wireless internet!

This place has got wireless internet! Not to mention, free Dove ice cream bars at any hour of the day or night! So thanks to the new toy, you're getting practically real-time blogging!

The rooms are plush. Take a look at the bathroom:

See the roses? There's enough towels in there to outfit a small regiment. And you should see Jill's bathroom! It's like another wing. And she has a fireplace! We've got plasma TVs on the wall. We had cookies in the room at checkin. And best of all: Turndown service. Chocolate on the pillow, baby.

Robes, and slippers laid out on a white cloth. I've never encountered the white cloth before. What am I supposed to do with that??

This place is so fancy...

Yeah. No plain Gideons Bible for them! Leather. Monogrammed.

After a lovely dinner at Wild Thyme Gourmet (two words: chocolate pate), we went back to the Lodge for the welcoming wine & cheese reception. There were door prizes. Crazy door prizes. One was a silver art jewelry piece worth $100! Here, Monica holds up an art glass plate valued at who knows how much. We may have to jump the winner in the parking lot.

(You can't see it, but over to the left is the freezer with the Dove bars.)

I won a cool purse:

Isn't it cute? It's way bigger than what I normally would carry, but the Q1 will fit inside it. =)

Everyone we met was very nice, and actual knitting did occur (I did a few rounds on the Pomatomus sock). In a very bizarre "Small World" moment, Jill and I discovered one of the teachers is someone we used to take tap classes with! I must sign off now...typing is a lot slower on my teensy keyboard. I can't wait for the classes tomorrow! And to see what shows up in the drawer in the assembly room with the titillating label: "Warm Pastries".
