The Noise Pollution Unit in the breakfasting area was switched to Irritate The Helpless Eaters, a much more acceptable setting than Destroy! Destroy! Those At The Feeding Trough!
The hotel waiting-person was polite, helpful and a Booby Sniffer. I observed Ms. Sniffy on several occasions as she poured coffee, sniffing every 10-15 seconds; bussing a table, sniffing every 10-15 seconds; walking between tables, sniffing every 10-15 seconds. A Booby Sniffer par excellence.
20.12Computing in the lounge area this afternoon; practising this evening. The hotel is without high-speed online access, which I find surprising in business-oriented lodgings. There is wireless access at Starbucks in the Centre, but the queues for coffee are long & the environment unattractive. So, offline it is.
While negotiating for movement-space in the Centre’s chaotic traffic flows today, as yesterday, I applied a simple exercise to increase my own sense of presence while in the bustling melee. This has remarkable effect, in placing oneself in-while-apart-from the moving crowd; providing that one remembers to apply it.
