I'm heading to Toronto today. We're attending a friend's 40th wedding anniversary party tonight. I've known him since Grade 5. It's great to maintain contact and friendship for so long.
We're staying overnight to meet another high-school classmate for dinner tomorrow. He is visiting from Sydney, Australia. I have not seen him for over 40 years. I'm really excited.
For tonight's hotel, I used Priceline to get a room at the Courtyard by Marriott for $60, about half of what I would pay if I were to reserve directly from the hotel - a pretty good deal if you can live with the uncertainty about which hotel (within a certain location and star-rating) you'll be actually getting.
Unfortunately, it will be hot - in the upper 80s!
