Eleventh day since the incident.
Yesterday was a great day.
I had to check out of the Sheraton because Harbor Steps could no longer extend our reservations day-by-day. The hotel was booked because Microsoft's Tech Ready 4 conference is in town (and the Sheraton is next door to the Convention Center). Why is that a good thing? While our building still is not ready, I was relocated to a better hotel. I am now residing in the Silver Cloud hotel. The Silver Cloud beats the Sheraton in many ways:
- Free internet. No longer do I have to flee to Tully's to send email
- 42" Plasma TV in my room
- Fridge and microwave in my room :)
- Free breakfast
Also because of Tech Ready 4, Jackie is back in town. :-) Jackie joined us after work for ...
Brie and I organized an outing to trivia. We had about a dozen people come, so we made two teams. In the end, my team was in a 3-way tie for first with 31 points, and our other team had 30 points. Shawn and I went up for the tiebreaker, and we won! This is the second time that my team has won trivia.
I didn't even have to bring it up, but several of the trivia folks wanted to do Karaoke afterward. I sang Refugee by Tom Petty as a tribute to my living situation.
