The hotel has a nice swimming pool, jacuzzi, and exercise room. I am working out on the treadmill twice a day, and I feel great.

I saw Alice in Wonderland in 3-D with Yun Fan today, so now I am ready to "Slay the Jabberwocky!" Chess tournaments are so much work!
So far I have 3.5-1.5 and I am white against IM-elect Robby Adamson in round 6.
Lady Gaga is coming to Saint Louis July 17, during the Women's Champs! Anyone who can get me tiks will have free chess lessons!!
