6:00a â€˘ Alarms go offâ€¦.snoozed twice! Fog everywhereâ€¦.during our drive, my colleague commented that it felt like driving through an Irish countryside. Funny thing is, neither of us has been there! What great imaginationsâ€¦
8:00a â€˘ Arrived at Epic. Grabbed some breakfast there.
5:10p â€˘ Back in
7:30p â€˘ Where is our friend? Heâ€™s supposed to be picking us up and continuing with the tour of the townâ€¦.in the meantimeâ€¦â€¦â€¦weâ€™re staaaaaaaaarving!!
8:10p â€˘ Nickâ€ťs Bar and Restaurantâ€¦â€¦BBQ beef sandwich/fries and a SPOTTED COW served in a nice restaurant/bar imprinted logo glass.
9:30p â€˘ The Icon Restaurant and Tapas Bar. Chocolate mouse cake with vanilla bean ice cream and caramel sauce paired with Baileyâ€™s warm coffeeâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦YUM!!!!! The staff is greatâ€¦allowed me to totally act like a touristâ€¦.lovely!
10:30p â€˘ Paulâ€™s Club. FAT SQUIRREL, rich and tasty!! Acted like a drunk, but totally sober, hahahahaha! Hugged a treeâ€¦..
11:45p â€˘ University of Wisconsin-Madison. Nice campus, even in the cover of night.
Itâ€™s official, by the end of this day, my colleagues thinks me strangeâ€¦â€¦â€¦.but strangely love it, hahahaha! I treat this trip in part as a mini-vacation since Iâ€™ve never been here. Yes, I am here because of work, but why not make the most of it. Most of my colleagues were perplexed by that reasoning, ergo totally bug-eyed by my casualness. All work, no playâ€¦â€¦.prison!!!!!!!
12:15a â€˘ what the heckâ€¦â€¦.got up to my room, couldnâ€™t open my door because my keycard was demagnetized.
1:08a â€˘ Canâ€™t find my work phoneâ€¦..tried calling itâ€¦..NOTHINGâ€¦â€¦WTF?!?!?! Where did I leave that thingâ€¦â€¦.eh, Iâ€™ll deal tomorrow.
