bored in Edmonton ... go figure

So I'm in Edmonton on a business trip ... I'm sitting in my hotel room this evening with nothing to do ... intensely bored ... I've just come back from Red Lobster and ate WAY too much, so physical activity is out of the question ... any ideas on how I can entertain myself in this city of beef and oil? Oh, and it's 7:39pm ... and I don't have a cowboy hat.

The longest I've ever been in Edmonton... was around 2 hours when a flight to Pearson YYZ was interrupted by a severe blizzard and the plane made a short stop over.

after hearing your story... thank god I didn't have to spend more than a few hours there

It's all what you make of it, right? If you have a home & friends & family - it is an okay place to be.

Actually it's the next evening Ended up going for a jog to try and burn off all the extra calories I've been taking in from eating out for every meal. After that I worked on a presentation I have to make early next week. WAY more fun than going out to a strip club Tonight I have no excuses, I have to review some customer spec documents before tomorrow's meeting. Hey, you asked

You people have a one track mind ... it's almost like you're guys or something and no there's is not any soft porn in the hotel ... unless you want to pay for it. I'm way to cheap.

We've all chipped in and bought you a hooker. At exactly 10 PM, go to the window and expose yourself for at least 5 minutes, so she can identify your room and come up. Use a flashlight and magnifying glass if needed to enhance visibility. Jumping up and down and screaming like a chicken would help too.

If the cops come, no worries, we hired them too, they are also hookers and should be treated as such. They like to be spanked and called dirty hos.
