The train that goes from Sacramento to Seattle is gorgeous too.

When you "do it" on a plane you join the Mile High Club. Is there any name for it on a train? I mean... "pulling a train" is already used.

I can only imagine the funny looks James and I would get if we came out of a bathroom together- someone would have to cue the clown music when 9 clowns get out of a mini.

You could always go in style and get a sleeping compartment...they're not much bigger than the bathrooms, but at least you can get horizontal!

I think that's called "berthing"

pouts, damn it im not in those clubes

There probably won't be as many good opportunities these days either. I bet they watch the bathrooms now for any kind of weird activity. Unless, of course, you rent your own little charter like this one.

My mother described the Amtrak sleeping compartment my 'rens had on a trip from Washington, D.C. to Florida as: "Too small to change your mind in, let alone anything else!"

You only need to bring those lights into a hotel to find all kinds of nasty little stains like that....

We're getting a new comforter- Hatcher, in his infamous buzzsaw ways, ate through our last two comforters. His cage was just close enough to the bed to pull a corner in and when James got home he was sitting in a cage full of stuffing.

Sounds like what my pet hamster did to my parents' curtains through the grate of the cage. Only on a more destructive level.

My older brother had a pet mouse that escaped once. Then we got a mutt-dog. Later we had fish.

I suspect my fish of eating other fish in the tank. I have two missing fish and I have no idea where they went.

I used to feed goldfish to my Oscar fish. Feeder guppies are good for all kinds of smaller fish too... like my saltwater lion fish. I don't remember seeing fish guts anywhere afterwards though... just the occasional scale.

We had a pirahna in college that would eat goldfish. We bought him a huge one once, it took him a week to eat it. The goldfish swam around for days with pieces missing.

I've heard that many hotel housekeeping departments rarely wash the comforters on the beds.
Blankets on the bed are required to be washed every 60 days, bed spreads, every 90. unless they are "visibly soiled".

blargh.

One of Rob's aunts takes all her own bedding when she goes away and stays in a hotel. i used to think she was crazy, but since i learned that interesting little fact, i almost think i'm crazy not to!
but then think about in the 19th century when travellers at an inn who didn't know each other would share a bed. blargh.

They still do that in the 21st century. I wish they all could be California girls.

And that was back in the days they would bathe once a week if they were lucky.

Maybe they should sell over the counter Luminol so that we could all self test hotel bedding? I think I'd end up sleeping in the car.

I'm notorious for not washing my cars. It rains too often and unexpectedly to keep a clean car around here.
