    The view wwest.

    2014 04 24 15.54.09 C2E2014: Day ZeroI’m staying at the youth hostel on Congress, near all of the universities and colleges.  Four nights: $168.  The room is an apartment: two bedrooms (each with four bunks), bathroom, kitchen, living room, free wi-fi.  While I’m blogging, four college women entered, and were a bit surprised to see me sitting there.  They went to see if they were in the right room, and they were.  One had a Spider-Man shirt, so I thought they might be in town for C2E2.  Instead, they’re here to visit the Art Institute.  Down from Detroit (one has a DJ father, and gets her a press pass to Motor City).  The three beds in my room are all taken.  No idea who my roommates are.

  • [I’m a “Good Guy” not “That Guy”.  Aside from the awkwardness, I’m on my best behaviour.  I like coffee.]
  • I had some shopping to do.  The Loop has a great selection of shops, in a small space.  Also a good selection of food options.
  • I’ve been up since 4 AM, and it’s almost 11, so I’m calling it a night.  Press registration opens at 8, so up at 6, so I can have a delicious breakfast I’ve been anticipating since last April.
