I underestimated my no-name hotel. It has free wireless internet, free cookies at check-in, free breakfast with waffles, and is next door to an In-N-Out Burger. My first stop, of course, was the In-N-Out. (It's better than Five Guys, for those of you in D.C.)
Actually, my first stop was the bank (yay for states with Wells Fargo branches) and then my old office. Only one student I hired was still around to chat with, and adversarial relationships with one of the senior fellows were quickly reestablished, but I would have regretted not stopping by.
But now I'm ensconced in my blissfully well-air conditioned room and can begin the last long cram.
