Actually, I was at the wrong place at the time of the youbetcha. It did not occur to me that there were like three Hiltons downtown. I was pleased with the relative luxuriousness of the hotel and room when I finally got there. Of utmost importance however:
I learned a lot observing my boss manage conversations, draw on research and respond to questions. Also, he can be extremely blunt and it's quite entertaining. It's never ill-intentioned or disrespectful. Just pointed. With good reason.
As part of my research I spent my Friday night outside of a MN town called "Ham Lake" playing a modified version of Family Feud with perfect strangers.
Very random delights.
