SIgma Tau Delta '08 - Louisville Wrap Up

Let's recap, shall we?

The bad:
  • It snowed.
  • One of us (you know who you are) got drunk and made dinner not so much with the fun.
  • I was sick the entire trip. Apparently I got a sinus infection, and those aren't good to have when you fly, so today I was even sicker.
  • I didn't get to go see the Thomas Edison House.
  • My purse was searched at the airport because of one of my keychains being a potentially scary object.
  • I did not get any KFC.
  • My flight was delayed for two hours - we finally departed when we should have been arriving in New York, which meant I didn't get home until after midnight.
The good:
  • My traveling companions were nice people who had good senses of humor,  and who were able to do things independently (and did so), but were also totally willing to hang out.
  • I got to go on a tour of the Louisville Slugger Museum.
  • One of the nice front desk ladies offered us free "pop" when we checked in. That alone made my trip.
  • The snow stopped by early Saturday afternoon, the sun came out, and the roads cleared up (although some of the sidewalks weren't).
  • The people in Kentucky are freakishly nice. People nearly constantly and regularly greeted me (and us) and were quite chatty - on the street; in stores; wherever. And they laughed at all my jokes.
  • Temporary roommate Nikki didn't complain about my alleged snoring. In fact, she said nothing about it, which means either she was being really nice about it, or something. And two nights of the three I had the hotel room entirely to myself.
  • I bought three new books at Borders: The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid; Rashi's Daughers, Book II: Miriam; and Year of Wonders: A Novel of the Plague.
