Coffee - a morning ritual

So, here I am.
In a motel.
Drinking substandard coffee.
Even two sugars didn't make it palatable.
But when you are desperate and it's all you have, then the taste is Nirvana.

Is there some unspoken motel law that states that pipes are loud.
That people get up at 5AM and shower and we hear EVERYTHING?
That all the coffee, filters and fixings come in cellophane wrapping that sounds
louder than a bugle and ricochets off the walls until we ALL are up?

And that there is nothing on T.V. that is appropriate for kids to watch and we end up watching a John Wayne movie, The Horse Riders, which made absolutely NO sense to me? I still don't understand the POINT of the movie. Some one want to clue me in??

And was 'some one' supposed to be one word?

And electrical sockets! How come they are all on the opposite side of the room from a table so I can't even use my computer in comfort? NooOOOoo, I'm on a bed, trying to balance things while trying to ignore Jimmy Neutron and now Fairly Odd Parents. I swear, vacations can make your brain de-evolve. Maybe that is why it's relaxing?? ::SNORT::

I simply MUST visit a book store at some point to reassert my sanity.

In the meantime, Happy 4th of July all. Hope your plans provide entertainment while being safe at the same time. And may you still get quality SLEEP. Since I didn't get much last night, it's high on my To-Do list. ;-)

You are so right about the outlets in hotel rooms. They are never by the desk or if they are, there are no empty sockets.

Happy 4th!

Vacations always seem like more work than enjoyment, at least while you're actually in the hotel. Hope you find some good coffee today and some good books as well.

Happy Fourth and Happy Vacation!

Hey, m~ .... you rated a spam comment! LOL...

Yes, someone is one word. Maybe next time you should pack your own coffee? I can't remember the last time I stayed in a motel room ... maybe when we moved out here 12 years ago? *G*

Have a great weekend!! I saw you wave. :-)

World the only constant is change

Yep, that and death. ;-)
that's a morbid thought.

Thanks for the comment!

You are SO right, Dru!
There have been a few I've been to that are more than accomadating, but not many.
Hope you had a great 4th too!

Hi Brandy!
Yep, I found five good books to buy - at a UBS. Yay!

Hi, M~
And ironically, the SPAM has meaning which is why I use the translator button.
Kinda cool in its own way.

Motels can be fun - all the different ways to maximize minimal space interest me.
