The event is done. At 4:30, I went down to meet T, C (T’s “old lady”), R, & S (R’s sister). No one was there. I wandered back and forth for a while and, eventually, received a text from Tyson. “on my way” I said, “I’ll message Randy, see if he needs help with his tie or something.” Turns out I messaged T instead. I called R. “Yup, yup, we’re on our way.” Everyone was in suits and gowns.
I’m in the hotel room now in Edmonton for the ASET event. We pulled up to the hotel via the new van’s navigation flawlessly and found that they had valet parking. The front desk said that parking was $35 per night plus $10 for valet if we should choose, but apparently the payers of the room also covered parking. Randy’s sister came by car on her own, so her parking was taken care of, too, along with valet service.
I went up to my room after arranging with everyone to meet downstairs at 4:30 in the Ballroom. I seriously needed a shower. I used scented antiperspirant, and it bothered me the entire trip and only got worse near the end. I’ll never do that again! The room is nice. There’s one king-size bed, a desk, a chair with table & lamp, & a bureau for the coffee, TV, fridge, safe, and such. It’s a standard hotel room, I guess, except nicer. Shampoo, body wash, hand soap, shower soap, face cream, shoe polish stuff, all that.
