Welcome!

26 Mar

Traveling is typically a magical time.  This time around, I’m staying in a Marriott Residence Inn about 30 minutes from the beach (which I’ll not have a chance to go near).  The room is pretty sweet, as is the big fat flat screen TV.  I’m used to arriving in a hotel and having a little basket of goodies waiting for me in my room.  (And no, I don’t mean male prostitute when I say “basket of goodies”)

This time around, there was a little something something waiting on my bed for me (and no I don’t mean a male prostitute).

What the fuck kind of welcome gift is this?  Seriously?  A washcloth elephant?  What the fuck?

    I guess it’s better than the last guest’s lube stains all over the bedspread kind of welcome gift.

    And come on, those sunglasses are killer.

    You have a valid point, GB. Sleeping in stranger spooge is not a thing I like to do-unless it’s a special occasion. -CS

    LOL I stayed in a hotel once when they would change the towel shapes everyday. i got the elephant, the swans, a flower. I got a kick and took pictures. 😀

    Well?? How come you haven’t sent us any copies?? We want to see the swans and the flower! -CS

    Really? At a Residence Inn… I’ve never seen that kind of outright schilling for a housekeeper tip except on cruise ships.

    Housekeeping can totally bite me. I expected to see some fabulous new towel animal today. There was nothing new-it was just the elephant, which collapsed on the table yesterday. They didn’t even fix him! -CS

    Sorry for the confusion miss. We had you scheduled for the Male Prostitute, however as it turned out he was already scheduled for two other events; the Bergman Bachelorette party in 219, as a fill in performer for Happy The Clown who couldn’t be available due to pending charges, and a sweet-sixteen party in the main hall.

    On a happy note he was able to give the entire cleaning staff, tips on balloon Animals and demonstrated several of his talents in the guest rooms with the toiletries.

    Oh well. If I can’t get that “sensual massage” from Mario, at least I can get the towel elephant. Totally the same thing. -CS

    That my friend is a “leave a bigger tip” washcloth 🙂

    They can suck it. They’re going to have to do a lot more than make an elephant washcloth to get me to leave them a bigger tip. -CS

    My friend just got back from a honeymoon cruise, and like people said, they had a different animal shaped towel every day. She has a thing for elephants, so that was her favorite. Hers came complete with sunglasses too! Must be a class at Hospitality U.

    Hmm. . .maybe this is a new trend. Soon all hotels will have little towel animals all over the rooms. -CS

    You should call the front desk and complain that they didn’t make you a washcloth peep. Way to cater to their guests, those bastards.

    It would be pretty awesome to see a peep made out of towels. Especially if they had the colored sugar all over it! -CS

    Where the ef do you go that you have baskets of goodies waiting for you? Fancy places, I imagine. Wow.

    Honey, sometimes it’s just 2 bottles of water and a bag of chips or cookies. Not that fancy. I will say that I don’t do anything less than 3 stars. -CS

    I know they do these things on cruises but never knew about hotel rooms. It’s cute, have fun!

    Maybe we should have Thursday Towel Animal day on the blog. What do you think? Too much? Too gay? You’re right, I won’t do it. Glad we had this chat, Teri. -CS

    You should rock those glasses

    I wore them out last night and everyone wanted to know why I was wearing kids’ sunglasses. Damn it! No wonder they were squeezing my head. -CS

    I’d prefer if they left booze…free booze…mmmmmm.

    You do realize the people that make those are most likely to snap.

    How awesome would it be to walk into a room, and see a little basket of free booze? Heaven, that seems like total heaven to me. -CS

    I think Martha Stewart had the room before you

    There would have been more fresh flowers and lacey curtains if she had been there. -CS

    3 whole stars! I tend to stay in run-down hotels with shady history. Just this weekend, for example, I stayed at the hotel in Hollywood where Janis Joplin died. Her room was already booked, so I stayed just upstairs.

    That hotel has some historical value, I might consider it. I have a coworker that’s going off to Europe in May. I was all excited and jealous until she told me where she was staying: in hostels. F that noise. This young thing does not stay in hostels and does not backpack anywhere. No freaking way. -CS

    This is an excerpt from the Summer of 2009’s blockbuster, “Horton Hears A Debbie Downer And Flees To Florida.”

    If he heard her, he would just stomp on her and wouldn’t have to flee. -CS

    “If he heard her, he would just stomp on her and wouldn’t have to flee.”

    Oooh, good point.

    I’ve been known to have one from time to time. Good points, that is. And drinks. -CS

    “I’ve been known to have one from time to time. Good points, that is. And drinks.”

    I’ve understood that you’ve had more than a few of each.

    This is totally true. -CS
