43 Showers: Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, Nashville, TN

Classic design, easy to operate and clearly marked.

I usually don't make editorial comments about the overall hotel stay (this is about the shower controls, and the shower controls only) but I have to add that this was an excellent hotel experience. Highly recommended, especially if you are travelling with a pet.

QotD: One Lump or Two?

How do you take your tea or coffee?
Submitted by Vasquez.

Coffee: Black, unless I'm somewhere that serves bad coffee, in which case I have it construction worker style, cream and sugar.

Tea: Depends on the type. Standard English Breakfast or a good Earl Grey I'll take with milk and sugar. Infusions I'll have undoctored, with the exception of blended varieties like Moroccan Mint. Green teas get nothing in them. Iced tea is a completely different beverage. I'll go sweet tea in iced.

As for the usual drinking habits, I drink a metric ton of black coffee in the morning, and then one cup of green tea or occasionally another coffee in the afternoon.

An extraface fun fact: drinking coffee at night does not keep me awake, so shut up.

Year-end Lists I'd Like To See

In the tradition of Mad Magazine and 5ives.com, here are three year-end lists that would please me — sort of a 3ves:

  • Top breakfast cereal prizes of 2006
  • 10 most influential non-verbal utterances by a television personality
  • 15 most shameless references to MySpace and YouTube in a wholly unrelated PowerPoint presentation

Will you be the one, GTDTracks.com?

I get a nerdy fiendish rush from trying a new GTD application, especially when I've been off the wagon (off is when you're *doing* the bad thing again, right?) for some time. It's like I'm tucking my cute little next actions into their beds and turning out the light knowing they'll slumber well. Will this GTD app be the one? How long will our relationship last? What will happen when the initial excitement wanes and we settle in to mundane organizational domesticity?
