Ah, travel, how you go to my head

This morning I woke up at 5 a.m., local time, and shuffled off to the bathroom. As I went in the door I reached for the light switch and was utterly stymied. It wasn't where it ought to be! Only after a short while did I realize I was reaching for the bathroom light switch of the last hotel I stayed at, the Doubletree in Houston, where I remember noting the light switch was unusually far away from the doorway.

Here at the Holiday Inn in Lawrence, the light switch is just inside the door (like most places, at least those where it is not outside the door), and once I figured that out I turned it on, at the same moment deciding I was clearly not ready to wake up yet, so after the requisite bodily functions I took myself back to bed to await my alarm's going off an hour later.

It has been a delightful conference, and I will write more later about the campbell and SFRA awards last night. Now I am heading back to Ann Arbor. Wish me luck on that whole traveling thing.
