Another week... another hotel room.

I'm lost in the bowels of Montreal.
Having discovered the great facility of taking a train to Montreal...
(there's even a little tiny story book style train station in a edge-of-suburbia zone between my house and the actual ottawa train station!... so, score! :D)

I'm in meetings all day today and tomorrow (actually doing presentations tomorrow) with a room filled with the Closer's from the galactic core and all the overlord outposts... and I mean like, dude flew in from India for these meetings...
Interestingly... the only woman is the woman I worked for years and years ago, who convinced me to come work here...

Looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong day.

ps. my back is doing great.

~ spent the day in semi nice stuff... but I'm in jeans and planning on getting out of these and into a bed as soon as possible!!!
~ up at 4:30... train station by 6
~ montreal by 8:30 and ... now it's now... 5:46 pm and the next stop in a big team dinner somewhere called 'the hammer', 'cept it's the french equivelant.
~ and I had a florida client teleconference interview at 10 this morning...
~ I am sooooo planning to be in bed and snoozing by 11... !!
~ I can manage my game face tomorrow..

When you consider the sheer number of software engineers in India, ready, willing and capable of being awesome, for soooo little money...
It's a wonder a software engineer anywhere in north america can make a living.

I'm here...

I'm actually in a really nice hotel... that you cannot see in that picture.
This is a vacant lot across from the hotel. :)
My room has a 12 foot ceiling and a kitchen... lol
One night... and I will do nothing with the kitchen...

I am going to have to make some adjustments in the universe, so I can actually start going to bed a little earlier...
I will be very curious to get the sleep-clinic feedback on how much oxygen I actually get when I sleep...
and to see how my daytime drowsyness is impacted by (If I am asked to wear one) using a CPAP!

K... time to go. :)
See ya.
