Unexpected Pleasures

Well, that was a string of events that pleased me:

  • I arrived at my Orlando hotel after 10 and fired up the laptop, planning to read some Web pages I’d saved to the hard drive earlier at Pech‘s. (According to both the travel agency and the hotel’s own site, there was no broadband available.) Just to be sure, I did a scan, and lo and behold: free wireless! Which was nice, because…
  • I was able to use the Wi-Fi to discover that the Loews at Universal Studios has midnight showings every night. (It’s ginormous, btw: the maximum capacity for the building is 8,000+.) As Universal Studios is just minutes away, I popped in the car, and was soon pleased to discover…
  • Parking at the complex, which is posted at $9/auto, is free after 6pm. The discounts don’t stop there, since…
  • My ticket was only $8, down from what he originally rang up ($12.) I’m not sure if that represents a midnight discount or just an intial miscalculation on his part, but I’ll take it either way.

Who knew you could do anything at Universal for eight bucks? The money saved should come in handy tomorrow as I skulk around MCO, awaiting my flight back to ORD

Hit Me With It
