View From a Hotel Window, 8/15/15: Cleveland/Westlake

Parking lot? But of course!

(The room is lovely. I do not wish to imply complaint. It’s just that parking lots out my window really do seem to be a recurring theme this tour.)

Today! The Barnes & Noble in Westlake, OH at 2pm (i.e., not long from when I am writing this). Hey, they haven’t started playing college football yet, Ohio. Come on by.

Tomorrow! Lansing, Michigan — the state capital, no less — at Schuler Books and Music. 4pm! Please come see me. I do not wish to be all alone.

  1. Has sparse turnout been an issue, Scalzi? I shouldn’t think so, unless you tour around there a lot so people know they can always see you….

    @SSteve – seeing those cars parked with a space on either side reminded me of a Ray Romano joke about how guys always sit with a chair between them at movie theaters so people don’t think they’re gay!

  2. OTOH – lots of parking lots have no trees. I enjoyed the trees even without the parking-lot cars.

  3. Yeah, I was going to say, for a parking lot view, this one isn’t half bad. A surprisingly high ratio of green to gray. With a little side of yellowish-brown, but as a Californian, I have a hard time distinguishing that from green these days.

    The spaces between the cars, though, is something that’s totally alien to a Californian. :)

  4. To be fair, that’s a pretty damn nice parking lot as far as these things go. Really nice trees screening the road, dividing lines between the spaces. I could have been a multi-story concrete eyesore.
