Angus is up early and on the phone with the super smart Los Angeleans. Folks are waking up in Moscow this morning and pretending that nothing has happened but things will be different from now on. The top guy in LA injects some humour into the conversation by saying ' It only serves as a reminder that you can never be too careful when choosing your catering company '.
Yesterday, we went to collect and pay for the art work for a Godsons wedding. It was finally ready to be unveiled ( and if we like it ) shipped to the States. We arrive ten minutes late but are greeted with the words ' You're early'. The artist rushes off to change and leaves us in the hallway which is full of twenty or so paintings waiting to go to an exhibition. There is rather a fine ceiling lantern that floods the house with light.
Back at home I'm about to make a reservation at a hotel in Colorado. 'The Font' reads the hotel blurb out loud in a 'are you quite sure ?' tone of voice - ' Our coffee bar/reception is a cool gathering spot for Denvers movers and shakers and you can expect to be surrounded by digital nomads and power brokers who'll be impeccably dressed. REMEMBER : High style in the Mile High City often means luxe athleisure wear worn with relaxed aplomb '. Neither of us is quite sure what athleisure wear is let alone how you would wear it with aplomb - relaxed or otherwise. The small print also says that there's a $35 per person amenity fee plus tax plus urban investment charge added to the bill at check out. We shall look for another hotel that might be a little less 'hip'. Angus is still unsure how a downtown hotel with no amenities can charge an amenity fee. Are elevators amenities now ? This is the second time in as many weeks he's come across this hidden charge.
Now that's hot. A 2023 high :https://twitter.com/extremetemps/status/1672514905222840323
