Drove through some towns that seemed to have seen better days, and also some really attractive, prosperous ones. Spent most of the journey singing along to the likes of Barry White and Loleatta Holloway at the top of my voice.
Arrived in Lubbock around 2pm and checked in at the Embassy Suites. Nice room and nice hotel that had an indoor fish pond! As I arrived, the very smiley girl at check in was just about to welcome me when all her phones rang at the same time. Every time she answered one phone and put them on hold, another rang
Settled into the room, and made my self a coffee...loving my coffee at the moment! Then after about 20 mins, there was a knock at the door. It was one of the desk staff with a gift basket and a card. She said sorry for the wait earlier, and gave me the basket, which had a chocolate bar, some crisps and 2 bottles of water, and the card was signed by all the desk staff! I LOVE this place!!
Really fancied going to the flicks to see The Dark Knight, but there is no IMAX in Lubbock, so decided to go and see Ted instead. Drove to the cinema, and there was a HUGE line for The Dark Knight. Lot's of people dressed up as Batman...really??? Woman at the box office said I was 5 mins too late for Ted, so I headed of at speed to the other side of town to see if I could catch it there...no luck :(
Gave up and went back to the hotel
Thanks to the decent and FREE wi-fi, I was able to watch a few episodes of Eastenders. WTF is Kat's mystery man??? DON'T answer that!! And that means you Cuthbert!!!
For the first time in a while, had a great nights sleep. Really needed it! X
