    Alas, my HHonors Blue Card arrived in today's mail. It mentions that "Your travel this year has earned you Blue status..." Wow! "Earned?" :rolleyes: :p

    And so,
    The sun rose in the east this morning, and will likely set to the west.
    My coffee this morning was hot.
    I had a breakfast, then I had some lunch.
    I'm currently having a bottle of Crystal Geyser Very Berry Flavor Sparkling Mineral Water.
    I'll go out to dinner tonight.
    I have no idea when I'm next staying at a HH property, but I didn't have any needless HH mattress runs in the past year, and my bank account thanks me.
    My next HH stay won't have an upgrade, nor a free breakfast, unless I stay at a Hampton Inn.
    I probably won't wave my Blue card around with a DO YOU KNOW WHO I WAS tantrum at any front desk.
    My self-esteem has not been crushed, my ego is the same size, and no important body parts have suffered shrinkage.
    And that is a reflection of my first day with a Blue card in hand.

    Maybe they should have worded it slightly differently.

    "Here. A lousy blue card. You got what you deserved. We probably shouldn't even mail you the piece of plastic. Thanks for nothing."

    :D

    I received mine yesterday which I thought was really odd since I have the Hilton Reserve CC and I'm gold...

    Ha, I love that. Cept for 'going out to dinner tonight, unless it was your idea. - - "Da Bride" is fixing dinner, as we speak. And my water is mixed with my very good friend, JD.

    But all else, Right On. (Psst, hey buddy, wanna buy a few thousand HHonors points?)
    Darn, didn't think so.

    You could send it back, with a note that says,
    "If it's Blue, I'm Through". Same goes for Silver, but since JD is sitting here, wanting my attention, I just can't come up with a quick ryme for Silver.

    Your few thousand, and another couple of hundred thousand, will get me a nice room for a few days, somewhere :(

    Dinner will be at a nice restaurant, down the street from home, with 2 bottles of wine coming along for the ride (well, so to speak, as it is a walk).:cool:

    Enjoy your walk (Stroll) to dinner. Been known to have a 'travel Mug' with a spirit, in it, going to dinner too.

    This weekend was my first "mooch market" trip of the year, and I got no hotel points, no free breakfast, and I had to make my own coffee! At least there was free Internet.
