Luxury isn't at all me...

I'm in Melbourne tonight- I took a quick zoom down here to see a production of Sunset Boulevard with several of our finest singers under the direction of one of the world's best. It was excellent, anyone interested in an audio souvenir knows who to talk to.

I got a deal on a 'good' Hotel in the package. It's all really very nice with tasteful if safely fashionable fittings. Silly little luxuries are everywhere, would you believe a 'pillow menu'? The mini bar is stacked with 'top end', there are magazines for people who care about whatever they're about. I've a CD player, a TV, a fax machine,a television that I gather works- I haven't tried it. I'm intrigued by the little stool at the foot of my bed. In movies, people sit on them while taking their sox off before bed. I feel that I should perch on it, something like a toad on a stool. Just sit there and pose to get full value for my luxury dollar. Perhaps order a $37 plate of 'smoked trout with seasonal selection of salad greens' from room service to fill the scene out? I have a private bathroom with no broken window looking out over a century's piled debris. Track lighting with dimmer switches contrast the hanging Hotel Chelsea bulb.

And, of course, it's at Hotel Chelsea that I'd rather be. I feel so out of place here, I don't blend in with the self-conscious chic. I can't relax in this room- it's all too precious and prissy and poofy and puffy. There's no cats, no mice, no all-night glow of sleazy red neon. Nobody smiles or says 'hello'. Reception is always attended by different 'between jobs models and actors' in clone suits. It's 100% impersonal. There is no life here- just a too soft mattress.
