Hotlanta

I've been here for about 11 hours and I haven't left the hotel. Sad, but true. I have been holed up in the club lounge or in my suite (sorry, not monarch like) working my fingers off revising a bunch of data and though still not very happy, I'm more confident in my estimates...

Error propogation can be nasty if unchecked.

So, that leads me with a few thoughts.

One, why fly half way across the country to give a paper in a meeting with people who already know what you are doing and all you are seeing is the inside of the hotel room while you are working on work that you could be doing much easier at home.

Why do people build atrium hotels? They are awful sound vortexes and just plain hideous.

Is it okay to just go to your day of meetings and spend part of the day before your meeting doing something fun like visiting the Dekalb farmer's market and visiting the Aquarium?

Oh well, time to sign off from the Crown Suite on the 15th floor of the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta. Sorry kids, no pool table but a pretty decent living room that we've currently turned into proposal and number crunching central.

Dinner with our fearless leader tomorrow. Very exciting! Team building! One Organization! Sis Boom Rah!

I have never been to Atlanta but I agree with you on atrium style hotels. I personally LOVE The Herhsey Lodge. LOVE it. Plan to stay there in May for three nights. LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
