These are some books I bought, plus a few other things, on the desk in my Hilton hotel room. I haven't bought as much as I'd thought I would because I'm finding that mostly it's satisfying just to drink in the sight of the stuff.
I did have to buy a bottle of "Romulan Ale," though, because this blog's profile provided me with this question:
"The love potion you made tastes terrible. How will you drink it?"
And I wrote, "With Romulan ale."
It cost $4.95 + tax, and the woman told me it's like beer. Except it's blue, like on the show.
(I bought the flowers at the grocery store I walked to.)
Below is a wonderful couple I met, Carolyn and Joel, from Boston, with toys they won! That's a tribble wearing a sombrero (it's a long story) on top of a boxed model of the Enterprise.
I met them on the first day, when I was sitting taking notes on passersby and Joel noticed me writing down his T-shirt's message:
THINK. IT'S NOT ILLEGAL YET
and he came up to chat. Only when they got closer did I see that Carolyn was wearing a Prisoner T-shirt. You know that Orwellian 1967 British TV show with Patrick McGoohan?
