I mostly talk about video games and the world wide web

Washington, DC; Day 1

So work decided to send me along to our nation's capital, the District of Columbia. We're organizing/taking part in this big convention dealie down here and I have to stay here for six days. I drove down today. Pretty uneventful drive, though I have come to the conclusion that Maryland drivers don't know what they're doing. Moreso than other drivers. By now I'm probably just used to New York and New Jersey stupidity though.

Anyway, I got here around 7pm and the hotel is super nice. Like, holy shit nice. It's the Renaissance if you want to know. Lots of neato stuff, like a bar in the lobby and a huge porn selection on the TV. Also internet is $10 a day and parking is $22 a day I think. Good thing I'm not paying for it! Following this update is a gallery of pictures of the room! Also I bought the New Super Mario Bros. game, which is awesome and very Mario-like. A little too much, in fact, because I forgot how much I suck ass at SMB games. Mario's physics really fuck me up for some reason. Really great game though; you should pick up a copy if you have a DS! That's all for today kids!

I've never seen so many pillows!

The water is apparently from Norway and costs $5 a tube... you can tell it's fancy because it comes in a tube.

There's a coffee machine in the bathroom! And the cups aren't plastic!! They're real ceramic mugs!

Various toiletries. I have no idea what creame rinse is.

Even the toilet paper has a gold seal. A GOLD SEAL!?

Ahh, but the best part of it all! I bought this myself back in NY though.

, “For every mark issued, we rereiqud the equivalent of a mark’s worth of work done, or goods produced.” The government paid workers in Certificates. Workers spent those Certificates on other goods and services, thus creating more jobs for more people. In this way the German people climbed out of the crushing debt imposed on them by the international bankers.Within two years, the unemployment problem in Germany had been solved, and Germany was back on its feet. It had a solid, stable currency, with no debt, and no inflation, at a time when millions of people in the United States and other Western countries controlled by international bankers were still out of work. Within five years, Germany went from the poorest nation in Europe to the richest.Germany even managed to restore foreign trade, despite the international bankers’ denial of foreign credit to Germany, and despite the global boycott. Germany succeeded in this by exchanging equipment and commodities directly with other countries, using a barter system that cut the private bankers out of the picture. Germany flourished, since barter eliminates national debt and trade deficits. Today Venezuela does the same thing today when it trades oil for commodities, plus medical help, and so on.

wrote.. Kitchen furniture for the brsafkaet nook includes a table and some kind of seating arrangement. Most of the people try to select a table that matches the shape of their brsafkaet nook. For instance, a circular table in an octagon shaped space or a rectangular table in a brsafkaet nook that's an extension of the kitchen. If you ever have a larger household and will need far more seating, then brsafkaet nook benches are a improved option than chairs. Yet, your guests could possibly be even more comfortable in a chair of their very own rather than cozying up to a stranger. Consequently, a mixture of benches and chairs functions most effective within the kitchen.

- Sasha,You SO deserve to be inceduld in this list of ICONS. You are a risk taker, a mover-shaker and do things your way staying true to yourself, your style, your core values. You push boundaries, challenge the status quo and that takes chutzpah to put yourself out there like that, knowing not only your product will face critics (good and bad) but yourself as an artist will as well. BUT, that is what ICONS do and we are grateful for them because, if we are smart, we pay attention and learn from ICONS on how to be better at being our best selves at what we do as well. Hope we can have another one of those amazing talks like we did at Catersource/ES real soon. Enjoy your presentation in NYC and I know you will be fabulous and inspiring as always. You certainly inspire ME!T.
