On this day, 29 June 2011, I am visiting NYC for 24hrs so I can ghost the RWA Nationals in the Marriott Marquis. I will be attending the NRCA award ceremony as well as peeking in on the Samhain breakfast. What happens after that is anyone’s guess.
I’m more inclined to stay in one spot and hope I don’t get lost just doing that. This is the BIGGEST flippin’ hotel I have ever seen in my entire life. No hotel should be this convoluted and confusing. I’m just glad that everything is labeled.
Please note, unlike most of the people of the world, I have never had any inclination to visit NY, let alone NYC. This the farthest north, on the east coast, that I have ever been and will probably ever go. And I’m only doing this once for the special occasion of Nationals and the NRCA award ceremony.
For those wondering what I mean by “ghost” Nationals, I mean that I’m not registered. I’m just hanging around the hotel and mingling before I go home. I did the same thing in DC last year. I hope to actually attend Nationals in CA like a normal registrant, but we shall see how Hawaii is treating me when that time rolls around.
