a particular day

Super 8

Cost: $55.00

At a motel on the outskirts of Chicago, HBO is free. There is no alarm clock and the box spring has questionable stains.

It was a fine enough place to stay within spittin’ distance from a rodeo, but to make it fancy—staying at the event's official hotel might make economical sense, and parking sense.

Or not. I've heard said, it all looks the same in the dark.

More photos later.

I hate scary, crappy hotels. I stayed in one in San Francisco last month, and it was bad. It wasn't "questionable", but it was really old, and you could tell. Worst part: it was $200 a night. *but I didn't pay =o)
