Life is good. I can strongly recommend the Carleton in Oak Park, IL. Not only is it a fine hotel with a fine wireless network, but it’s also inexpensive and within half a block of the el and a really fine Whole Foods store. And the rates are positively a steal.
Continuing on the musical track of late, I was thrilled that the encore of the Steve Wynn show I couldn’t attend last night is already uploaded as an mp3. I’ll mirror it here, for a while, since Steve seemed interested in getting it out there. It’s a cover of The Calvary Cross (original written by Richard and Linda Thompson) featuring Rick Rizzo of Eleventh Dream Day. I’m sorry I missed it.
I’m really torn about what to do for the rest of my time here. Though I’m here for the CCCCs, the SPE conference is occurring at the same time only a few blocks away. I’m actually more interested in most of the main speakers for the SPE, especially Barbara Stafford.
