Free Ride

I took Caltrain up to the hotel. Sorry, but it was uneventful.

The problem I had was that the hotel was only half a mile away as the crow flies, but much further if walking because I had to get across the highway. So I looked for a taxi. Nothing. So I crossed the tracks. Nothing. But then I saw a sign for a Trolley.

A trolley, really, in Burlingame? I was curious enough to look closer. It was a free shuttle. To my hotel! But I had twenty minutes to kill. So I dragged my carry-on bag like a homeless woman down Burlingame Ave. Yes, once again, I packed in just a carry-on bag. Thank you airlines for encouraging my amazing packing skills by charging me for checked luggage. Also, it is easier to take on public transportation, which I have become obsessed with doing. This trip is no exception. But I digress.

I walked down Burlingame Ave. Lots of cute restaurants I want to try some day. But I was searching for a hair brush since I have confirmed that I did forget it. I was surprised to find a number of beauty product shops but they were all closed at 19:30. Sigh. However, the Apple store was open, so I almost stopped to get a power cord for my iPhone since I brought the USB cable, but not the wall plug. But I decided to rough it.

So I roughed it all the way on the free shuttle to my 3.5 star hotel. I know, I know, maybe I should have gone with the four star on Hotwire, but I decided to spend that extra $20 at the hotel bar.

So here I am, drinking a glass of wine and blogging. The bartender is trying to be entertaining, but I’m having a hard time hearing through his accent. He just stopped by to ask if I were calling him. I appreciate the flirting. Oh, that reminds me of another post I’ve been meaning to write.

Hopefully my battery will last…

…I think I forgot to eat. Too late now. Wine is made of grapes and grapes are fruit, right? Right? Luckily I have a Cutie from Cow Orker. Now I wish I had packed the granola bars this morning.

  1. You need to watch out for those cuties from cow orkers. Orking cows is illegal in 23 states, you know.
