There's a law against attempted murder, even in Baltimore.  
I'm in Baltimore!

The weather is amazing, y'all. It's cool and not humid. God, I miss this. :) I mean, the heat and humidity in Florida is right for Florida, and I love Florida for it, but this is just lovely.

The hotel is charging me $10 a day for internet access. Jeez, Marriott, are you that hard up?

I'm going to go wander around the Inner Harbor and have dinner. *happy*

Dude! I'm in Washington! What are you doing and how long are you in Bal'mer? :)

Aw dude, no way! I'm going to the CALI conference up here for the next three days. I'm all booked up Saturday and Sunday, but I'm free in the evenings tomorrow and Friday.

Yays, loves Baltimore! Is the McCormick factory making anything that smells yummy?

I KNOW, re Marriott, I have to pay too, and the husband's a high falooting muckety-muck with them. I'd say boo, 'cepting they pay our mortgage (then again, I only pay $19 per night for anything lesser than a Ritz).

Obrycki's is by far my favorite, but then again, I'm a Marylander and am a sucker for a decent blue crab!

Have fun. Take a water taxi over to Fells Point and have a drink for me!

Um, I don't know. I'm inside. :)

If I have time, I will definitely go there. Not sure how much time there is for stuff, but I've never been to Fells Point. :)

Stoopid Marriott.

A bunch of my college friends went to Baltimore right after graduation. I couldn't go with them. I recommended that they go to Fells, but somehow managed (at least according to them) to forget to mention the water taxis, so they totally walked there. Hee!

Yeah, the taxis are much quicker.

Aw, sweetie, we just missed you! We were at the con in Silver Spring last weekend! You are lucky with the weather, it was nasty and humid when we were there.

Anyway, have a lovely time in Baltimore, and if you've a mind to, check out the Folk Art Museum, it's really bossa nova!

The nicer hotels charge for everything. The cheaper places tend to give more free stuff. So Mariott will charge for Internet and parking while Best Western gives you that stuff for free.

It's because the nicer hotels cater to business clients and/or people with more money. These people usually don't blink at the extra charges. The economy traveler resents the extra charges at the Motel 6, so they don't have to pay them.

Smolder and I REALLY resent those extra fees and we've started making that an issue when choosing the hotel.
