Checking in from my room at the Adam's Mark Hotel in St. Louis, I am amazed by the hotel's description of its frequent guest program, which is stated on the key card.
"Join the Simplest, Most Fungible Valued Guest Program There Is."
Fungible! Now there's a word the boys in marketing must have liked it. But I like the hotel because when I checked in today, all they had left for me was a suite and for a few days I'm staying in a hotel room that is likely bigger than my own apartment. For starters, my apartment does not have a bar in it. Or four different types of chairs.
I started off my day taking a tour of Busch Stadium and also visited the Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum, which also shares space with the International Bowling Hall of Fame. I also attended an author's panel at the St. Louis Public Library, where I am glad I don't have to work because all the librarians wear matching red golf shirts. However, the 2007 World Series trophy is on display in the library, so they have that going for it over the library where I work.
I'll be contributing photos to a Flickr group as the convention goes on.
