[travel] Oops...and he recovers the fumble!

Woke up this morning to find the bill under my door indicating I'd been checked out of my room. Hilarity ensued, as I'm not actually leaving Omaha til tomorrow, and this is the week of the College World Series, which is apparently the most hotel-intensive sporting event this side of Paris Hilton's road rally performances. In other words, No Room at the Inn. Luckily, as I was already checked in on a corporate reservation, the palatial La Quinta seemed willing to extend my stay by a day. So I will not be sleeping in my rental car tonight.

That is all. You may shop as usual, no need to return to your homes.

Well, not really. Packing it in here, though. Have to be up at oh dark thirty, about 1:30 am Portland time, to get out of here. It only gets worse, as I anticipate being up about 24 hours tomorrow. Oh, the fun I'll have! At least it's all in a good cause.

Meanwhile, here's a couple of things to chew on:

Language Log on the difference between plagiarism and copyright infringement.

Paul Jessup on dissonance in fantasy.

And I'll be closing out the caption contest in the next day or so.
