Have booked my hotel room, for reasons unknown I'm in a family room o.O oh well! Might ring them again and query that, I'm not quite firing on all cylinders and it sounded like the lady on the desk wasn't either.
I'm also going to force myself to get over my irrational hatred of large social gatherings and book a place at the dinner. Yay! And I'm going to do that right now before my nerves fail me.
