From Phoenix to Santa Fe...

Business trips... most likely the only two I'll go on all year. Pretty good trips but there were just a few odd things I felt compelled to share with you...

First off- the most recent trip to Santa Fe. Below you- please note a picture I took in the Women's bathroom in the Albuquerque airport. Yes, this is what you think it is. A sharps collector most commonly found in a doctors office. Not a restroom. Please also note the MANY syringes in it. I could have grabbed a few used ones had I wanted to. Um....?

Secondly, Phoenix. Everything was great... spent time with my aunt Coco (haven't seen her in over 5 years...), great food, great bed, great mojitos.... yum. But take a look at some pictures I took of the inside of our great Hyatt Regency downtown.

UM, yeah. Creepy. For anyone who has seen "Donny Darko" and remembers the horrible rabbit "Frank"... you know what I'm getting at. Larger-than-life, odd looking random animals crawling up the sides of the hotel, doing stunts, leaning over the elevator so every time you come to the main floor "FRANK" is there to greet you. ACK! Want a picture of "Frank"?
