I must say that FC staff needs to have a serious discussion with the assholes here at the Hilton. I thought there would be little difference between the con hotels, but the Marriot seems to be much more mellow than the Hilton. When I checked in I had to sign a paper that stated I would not throw a party in my room. That seemed reasonable. I skimmed through the sheet and saw stuff about serving alcohol to minors and maintaining proper noise levels. Nothing wrong there. I guess one should always read every line of everything they sign. One of the provisions was that no alcohol could be brought into the hotel. I got stopped bringing in a case of Costco beer by some hotel toadie. I basically told him to fuck off. A few minutes later I had the manager pounding on the door demanding to know where the alcohol was. I made up a story about not knowing anything about any alcohol. I was then threatened with eviction if any alcohol was found at any time during the con. Whatever. I have been hearing all sorts of horror stories from people staying here about Nazi staff. I just wish I had known sooner that I would be staying in Stalag 13.
