I write comic book reviews that NOBODY has ever asked for!
Apologies to the readers of this blog for the entries getting a bit sparse during the summer months. I manage a hotel in Utah that sits right at the best spot to call it a night between the West Coast and Yellowstone. . .so from June to September it's a bit of a madhouse until school is back in.
Having a full house every night is great for business, but not so great for readin' and reviewin' comic books. Even as the night manager on the graveyard shift, there's a steady stream of people and an unrelenting amount of phone calls in the strange hours of the morning that even after all these years (15 years in the hotel biz) I find it hard to believe.
Even as I write this short entry, I've taken 4 phone calls and had 3 guests at my desk needing this or that over the past 30 minutes. It's 1:30 a.m.- read more
Summer, that is.
Still not QUITE done with, but this is the first night in almost 3 months my hotel hasn't been completely sold out. Looking at my paperwork tonight, I see a severely sharp decline in reservations starting in about a week when even late-starting schools are back in session. I think everyone on staff here will be glad for the break (until they start whining about how bored they are in about a month or so). I know I'LL be glad to get back to readin' and reviewin' some Longbox Junk!- read more
I don't really hate SUMMER. Let me restate that. . .
I hate working at a hotel during the summer vacation travel rush.
There's a strange air of desperation for about 100 days a year when my hotel is completely sold out every single day and the phone literally doesn't go for 5 minutes without ringing and someone on the other end practically begging for a vacant room.- read more
I've gotten some messages asking me why the entries in this blog are becoming more infrequent.
My apologies, and a bit of explanation. . .
I'm a night manager at a hotel and I do these during my down time at work. As the summer season goes into full swing, I have less of that down time. When school gets back in, you'll see them going back up in frequency again.- read more
