I have solved the pocketbook q. I will just tuck essentials into a small zippered case that I now use for small bills and change. It has a place for credit cards, license, and room for breath mints. The briefcase is classy enough to double as a handbag in this sitch.

Now, I figured that a place like this hotel would have such a service, but would the limo driver see fit to swing by first? I'm sure she would -- I'm just wondering if it raises eyebrows with company to be billed for another trip. I know this is spare change to them, but Ellie Mae ain't got klew. I mean, it'll be hard enough not to spit my chewin' tabakky anywhere in that limo! *smirk* (I read about the closing of a auto plant around here. The old timers were tradin' stories, one of them said he used to spit chewin' tobacco juice into the cars to give them that new car smell. heh.)

I will probably just ask the HR guy who has been Shhhhheduling the event. He'll tell me what they normally do. I only need room for the clothes I wore in for the flight and I'll probably change into them at the airport, before I fly back for the weekend.

Ack. Gotta fly. That hot pink nail polish is calling my name.
