Was sagten Sie? Sie möchten in die Gasse gehen?

For some reason the dates are showing up in German.  WTF? 

And for the record, my hotel kinda depresses me.  They have free videos and CDs you can rent.  All they have are VHS tapes, and some of the better movies are Speed and Mad Maxx.  The guy who checked me in seemed to be horrified by the selection of CDs.  I can only assume the worst: Celine Dion and Barry Manilow.  In the room you can play video games for 6.95 a minutes.  I should clarify, Super Nintendo games for $6.95 a minute.  The going rate on ebay for SNES systems seems to be about twenty bucks.  And that system cane with seven games.

They have a courtesy room too.  I have yet to venture down there, but I'm told that they have soda that costs only twenty-five cents.  And the best part is that they "work on the honor system."  There is a place to put 25 cents in a jar.  But it gets better:  If you don't have a quarter, they have IOUs you can fill out and they'll bill it to your room. 

All and all, pretty depressing.  I'm sure when it opened they had some great ideas like "we'll have videos and CDs for people to borrow!!  And video games, you know, for the kids!"  The problem is that 6 years later, it seems they have yet to purchase any more music or videos, and the SNES is terribly out of date.

Edit: Ha, I found a picture of my suite online:

What about the hookers? How much do they cost?

mad Max is tolerable, but it is not the Road Warrior. See if they have Beowulf, Highlander or any other bad Chirstopher Lambert film, those will make anyone's day better

Don't tell Mindy, but there are mad fly honeys all over the place looking to get laid.

Oh wait. I was thinking about the free popcorn that came with the room.

Jay on Monday, February 09, 2004 at 9:58 AM

Ehhh? Popcorn? This guy knows what I'm talking about.

Hey Phil any suggestions for a team name tonight

Jay on Monday, February 09, 2004 at 10:32 AM

I will go on and answer this like it was my turn. I am a big fan of "What's Chinese for Jagerbomb?"

Phil on Monday, February 09, 2004 at 10:37 AM

I was about to post it the same team name. Good times.

Jay on Monday, February 09, 2004 at 10:39 AM

Yep Good times. I'm such a jackass.

Phil your suite looks like Luke Skywalker's home interior on Tatoonie <--- uber dork lol. (well, maybe at least from an obscure ariel view. Shutup jay, i know you'll have a different respone. At $6.95 a minute you should see if you too can beat supermario wolrd in 11 minutes (or for 76.45) Lokk on the brightside phil.....at least we don't have to see you for a few more days. when i say it that way it makes me smile at least. And remember don't sleep between the hotels sheets you never know what you may find.....like crabs.

Phil on Monday, February 09, 2004 at 12:24 PM

Oh crap, I meant 6.95 an hour. 6.95 a minute I should be able to get blown by the princess in mario brothers.

Marc on Monday, February 09, 2004 at 12:28 PM

And for that price a jelly donut to boot.

Jay on Monday, February 09, 2004 at 1:25 PM

For one thing, it's Tatooine, not Tatoonie. Second, Phil's suite doesn't have power converters from Tashi station. Well technically, neither did Luke. So okay, they are the same then. 6.95 per minute, you should be tag-teamed by that princess and princess Zelda. All the way home.

Marc on Monday, February 09, 2004 at 1:55 PM

spell check is for fags

Jay on Monday, February 09, 2004 at 2:07 PM

Actually, it's called not being a complete retard, and thinking when you type, ass.
