    I am in a hotel ... 3rd Oct 17 at 11:15 PM
    in Bristol.

    It is a free night using hotel chain reward points accrued, includes a free cookie (whatever that is) or a piece of fruit, compilmentalry bottles of water, and a free brekkers worth about £15, or 1000 points towards my next free stay, and a free alcoholic drink what I am currently testing.
    I also got a free upgrade to an executive room.

    It cost me £6.80 to get here by train.

    I think that overall it is fairly MSE.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    All my screwdrivers are cordless.

    I think a cookie is some sort of colonial food substitute, and fruit is something that isn't red meat but can be eaten as a substitute in life or death situations.
