pretending to be awake
... my agent at the time was big on Scotch get-togethers in her hotel room...
A little off-topic, but is that not a little bit weird? Maybe it's a UK/US thing, or a convention thing (I've never been to a con). But going to someone else's hotel room... it's just a bit over my boundaries. Like, it's not even the same thing as being invited to someone's house. For me it reads the same as them inviting you into their bathroom or bedroom - a private part of the house not usually for guests.
This is why I'll never be one of the cool kids, I'm missing all the secret get-togethers...
