I Am Loving Me Some Tom Bodett Tonight

Go figure.

Last night, we were booked into the Country Inn at Humble. By the Executive Assistant of our company, who, by all things that are holy, should know better. Janie, the queen of Hotel Rooms Extraordinaire, was not amused.

The parking lot? DARK. The room was d.i.r.t.y. Mold was growing up the tub, I kid you not. And, the straw that broke the poor camel’s back? The air conditioner did not work. And Houston, people, is FrenchSpanishIrish for freakin’ HUMID. (I’ve bitched about that before on this blog, I know.) I was on the third floor, so I opened my windows. Mistake, mistake, mistake. Two car alarms went off in the night, which only exacerbated my hormonally hot, sleepless, state. Women over a certain age cannot sleep in 75 degree rooms. (Men, if you don’t know that already, you need to seriously get a clue – it might extend your life a couple of years.)

On top of that, my DNA makeup was designed by the God of Straight Hair. Straight Hair, combined with humidity, equals Even Straighter Hair. Add that to a 75 degree room – no amount of Big Hair Hairspray is going to help. No Texas Big Hair for me today…

But tonight?

Tonight, one of my fellow salesmen booked the Days Inn in Robstown. I was secretly scared to death. Every time I’ve stayed at a Days Inn (maybe once in the last 15 years), it’s smelled like…never mind.

I just arrived. Tom Bodett left the light on for me. The desk clerk, Isabel? Smiling, professional, called us by our names, helped us out tremendously. The room? Spotless. The wireless? FREE. The bathroom? Again, spotless. Towels? Smell like DOWNY. No kidding.

Okay. Now, I’m going to sleep. I’m not even going to check your blogs, though I miss you dearly. I’ll catch up with you in a couple of days. For tomorrow, princes and princesses of my heart, I’m heading 30 minutes down the road to the King Ranch. I’m excited.

Y’all have a blessed Friday! Pictures and stories (I’m sure!) to come.

Oh, hell. I just remembered – Tom Bodett is Motel 6. Menopause – just another reason for forgetting stuff. Heh.

Gross. Nothing nastier than nasty motel room. Poor you. If you stay there again bring your own bleach.

Pam said...

All righty then...we were freezing our feet off last night. If you run into Officer Hester tell him hey for me! Have fun, and show them guys how to shoot.

Vodka Mom said...

Here, let me get some happy pills out of my purse. I KNOW Braja says no meds, but she'll NEVER know...


(Have a GREAT time, heifer.........)

Wait a second, I came over for the post and I'm staying for some of Vodka Mom's happy pills....

A good hotel manager makes a world of difference. He/she can turn the Sleepless Inn into the Four Seasons with just a few touches and some good housekeeping.

There's a Hampton Inn in Pickwick, TN like that. It's run like a personal bed and breakfast.

Have fun! I know you will :)

Vodka Mom said...

They've got a TOUCH of hormones in them. (Seeing as how they took out everything but the kitchen SINK two years ago...)

But, I'm sure I have enough to go around.

Annie said...

LOL! I hope you got a good night sleep. Big hair is still popular in Texas? Damn, I'm movin' to there! Big hair hasn't been popular in Oregon in twenty years and honey I CAN DO some BIG BIG hair!

TexasRed said...

Have a great time! So glad you got a good night's sleep.

Pearl said...

Yikes! As an executive admin myself, I would have not suspected that the Country Inn was disgusting and the Days Inn a delight.

Ack. Some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.

:-)

p.s. and if we're passing out pills, would someone please note that I've just gotten in line?!

Tabitha Blue said...

Ok, soooo glad you found a new place to stay... that would not be a fun place to be stuck... menopausal or not!! Anyone in Houston needs air!!

ah it's okay, I hear he cheats on motel six every now and then.

Heinous said...

I've only had one motel room like that, but it scarred me for life. Well, at least for a day or two.

I sure hope you have the most marvelous time at the ranch!!!

Hope you have a beautiful weekend! ♥ Hugs :)

I have a serious phobia about hotel rooms.

Seriously, I would have gone and slept in the rental car.

Eww.

Junosmom said...

Okay, okay, you're just doing that to torture me. Really, Janie. Here I sit in a hospital chair. Huh. Tom Bodett. Where is he when I need him. Just kidding - enjoy your sleep.
