We arrived back at the St. Francis
and were able to check in. Tom informed us that the price of the
room included breakfast in the dining room, breakfast being served from 7:30
to 10:00 am. He also held a informal gathering in the dining room between
5:30 and 6:30 pm for guests to meet each other and converse. Also available
to the guests are complementary coffee, tea (both hot and iced) and water.
Guests can simply walk downstairs and partake of any aformentioned beverage
anytime, provided they are available.
He then showed us to room 3-A, Lilly's Room.
We walked up two flights of stairs. The stairs have this odd perspective
that is best not dwelled upon least you miss a step. It's more noticible
going downstairs than up. Our room is at the top of the stairs.
One of the first impressions of the room is the lack of square corners. In
fact, looking at the building as a whole you realize there is not one right
angle corner in the building at all. Even the doors are trapezoidal in
shape, but not enough to give it a true Alice in Wonderland appearence, but
enough to give it an odd feeling. The room itself is trapezoidal in shape,
white walls with green trim and deep red carpeting.
Kurt and I spend an hour or so relaxing in the room before going downstairs
for the social.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
