Hello! Well, I made it through my first B&B experience intact, and I had a wonderful weekend. The hot tub was HUGE, although not particularly heart-shaped...well, maybe a little bit. It was awesome! The island we went to (in the San Juans, near Canada) has a lavender farm, so we were able to buy all manner of fresh lavender bath stuff and dump it in the tub. So yummy!
The Boy and I had a very romantic weekend. He's WAY more mushy than me, and I have to admit it's nice to have someone be so enamored of me. We did tons of fun stuff, and probably drank and ate too much, but I got to sleep a LOT and that was so decadent.
OK, so, briefly, the Advantage Rent-A-Car story.
Advantage was apparently bought out by another company. Through a whole series of complaints I made to various people, who shall remain nameless, the COO of this new company heard about me. He call me personally, apologized profusely for my terrible experience, and gave me his cell phone number and told me I could call him anytime, day or night, and get a rental car anywhere, no matter what. It was a very nice gesture and he really impressed me with his speech about how the company is trying to make a change as far as customer service, etc. I hope it's true. I don't know if I'll use Advantage again, but it definitely took the edge of my anger. All I wanted was for someone from the company to recognize the legitimacy of my complaint.
Let's see...what else. I don't know. I'm happy, in love, busy, and generally pretty content with life.
