Living at the damned mall this week

So here I am this week in Piqua, Ohio. I arrived at my two-star hotel last night to discover that it's attached to a mall. Unless you count the multi-hour ordeals known as "shopping with grandma" that I went through as a child at the Lake Air mall back in Waco, I've never slept at a mall before.

As I was settling in last night, evaluating the toilet facilities, I discovered another wonderful thing about this hotel: It's apparently about 75 yards from very active set of train tracks. When the first horn blew, I pretty much came out of my seat. The third or fourth train of the night came just as I was falling asleep.

Oh yeah, the wireless internet here is spotty too. Isn't it great that it's 2007 and I can bitch about spotty wireless connections? When I was out in this area in 2002, there wasn't squat.

Tonight I walked around downstairs in the relatively small mall. It was less annoying than usual, I think due to the lack of an Abercrombie and Fitch store.

Oh, and it's raining outside, and the TV is getting shitty reception. Feel sorry for me!
