Following up on that watch thing, apparently, you can't wear water resistant watches in the hot tub anyway, because of different rates of heat expansion.
Then what fucking good are they, then?
Said half in jest. Of course, this makes my problem moot, and I don't need to worry about it. OTOH, is it THAT difficult to make a watch completely encased in rubber? A solid-case watch should not be a problem. A solid-case essentially-disposable watch should not be a problem. Battery replacement? Pfft. Toss the fucker!
Whatever. I can always bring along a cheap Ikea alarm clock, and set it up on the side.
I believe that is the First Class hot tub. Our hot tubs are the four down below. Which is still fine -- it's a hell of a view. Even better than the view from the hot tubs at the Chicago Hilton, which looked like this:
Unfortunately, you don't really get a sense of the skyline from there, or of the El trains rumbling by. "Hello, straphangers!"
Good times, good times...
