Dang. Looks like we just missed booking for their winter promo, but I can still get 3 nights in a king suite for under $400 :notbad:
Their promos during winter are CONSTANT. Just get on the list. Some of the suites are unnecessarily huge. If it goes badly with your date, you don't have to go home. Just tape a line down the room.
:lolol:

Good to know on the suite sizes. I’ll sign up for their promo emails and keep an eye on them. Thanks again mang.

Any time. There are a number of pro tips that are better to just know, not learn.

:millennial: nap room. I like it.
Well, we have those in the office, but I'm at home.

We also have "mother's rooms" for what I assume is nursing/pumping?
we got a pumping/nursing room about a year back. No nap rooms yet.

Y'all hiring? Need a 7 fig salary and a nap room with warm artisan soy milk on tap. :millennial:

I sometimes wish I pursued a tech based career path over a design/construction career. Both tech and design are passions of mine. Not sure where I fit into a big company like yours.

Not really worth it over free Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon Prime I already pay for.

Don’t know if it’s the humidity being gone or what, but last few nights I’ve been waking up cause I can’t breathe through my nose. That spot in the back of your mouth where your nasal canal connects to your mouth/throat is completely dried out. I have to get up and go drink water to fix it.

Anyone here sleep with a humidifier?

I sleep with my mouth open, so this is pretty much a daily thing for me, I keep water on my bed side table. I do feel better in the summer with humidity, skin, sinuses, just everything is better.

We have a humidifier and IMO it does nothing, but :tits: likes to have it for whatever reason.

I don't pay for Netflix, we're on Lisa's brother's subscription. That's OK though, there's not a lot to draw you to them over any of the others, IMO. Their in-house movies usually suck. And I don't know if it's just my old ass Apple TV, but all their stuff has a rating of 4.5-5 stars when you're looking at it, and after you start watching it you realize it's complete shit and cancel back out, it shows the real rating of like 2 stars.

I just stick to Prime. Better content. In-house stuff is really pretty good from movies to series shows. And it's all lumped in with the prime shipping bennies.

What cracks me up, is everyone who touted cutting the cable and saving so much money, when they add up their prime, netflix, hulu, disney, etc subscriptions...... they should have just stuck with cable TV packages. lol.

All :dat:

I like Prime because they offer photo storage, shipping bennies I share with my fiancee and parents, plus decent content. That is the only one I would keep on my own. We get the Hulu with commercials free through :tits: spotify account and it's decent as well. Netflix in house content was good in the early days and now sucks.

I like Netflix. I think their name is big enough to attract higher tier people for shows. Never tried Hulu. I sub to Youtube TV and like it quite a bit, well worth the $49 over paying for cable/satellite. Disney+ better do something great to keep me around, because right now all they have me interested in continuing to watch is The Mandalorian and The World According To Jeff Goldblum. Both are easily downloadable via shady sources doe.

I’m gonna wait for all the episodes of The Mandalorian to be available before I watch. So far I’ve just watched a few Disney movies on Disney+. Buddy signed up for it and gave me his password. I wouldn’t pay for it myself.

I've been considering cancelling Netflix as well. I just don't watch anything on there that I haven't already seen, and the 4k plan is like $16/mo.

Yeah, it's not cheap like it used to be :sad:

Disney+ does seem to be kinda limited as well... I mean Disney movies are great and all but it seems like once you watch the few you haven't seen in years, the excitement will wear off and I'll fail to see the value for $7.
