Hotelception.  Dan Collins checks into the Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel, and discovers a hotel within a hotel.  We’re wondering how many levels there are and if time moves more slowly as one goes in deeper.

Your lips are moving but I can’t hear what you’re saying.  Jeremy Del Nero puts on the noise canceling headphones by Tumi.  Sadly, he couldn’t hear the ice cream truck passing through and suffered a sugar imbalance the rest of the day.
