The One Good Thing About Spending Every Week In Indy...

Is that after awhile, you get into a routine. Stay at the same hotel. Walk the 1/3 of a mile to the little restaurant complex, choose the Mexican place, the Sports Bar, the Cafe, or the sandwich shop. Stop into Starbucks, perhaps. Walk to the grocery store to pick up bottled water and the next day's lunch.

Walk back to the hotel, get to the gym perhaps, play a little Neverwinter Nights, do some novel writing, take a bath, hop into bed and watch "Animal Rescue" on Animal Planet, sleep, get up at 7am, shower, head down to breakfast, walk across the street to work.

When you fly every week, it's nice to have a routine. I was really worried about all this traveling getting me really depressed and down, but the weather's good and every meal and Starbuck's coffee is on the company's tab.

It could be worse.

Man, I'm telling you there are kick ass restarants in Indy. You're missing out, especially if your company is paying for it. I don't know if you're a vegetarian or not, but St. Elmo's Steakhouse is amazing, even if you just go for the shrimp cocktail and fiery horseradish. Also, Palamino, which is very close-by, has kickin' food. There's a lot to do around the convention center, including a movie theater.
