Re: The Shining -- 1980


I was offered a job at The Stanley Hotel, way back in the 90's.

Nice.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

After seeing The Shining, I wouldn't want to work there... Thanks for the compliment. You made my day!

I turned it down, but not because of the movie. The hotel is actually in Estes Park, not remote like the movie makes it seem. But I was living in Ft Collins at the time and the commute would have been quite long.

Hope (and expect) that decision worked out well for you. Plus, you've still got a story to tell... that's gotta' count for something!
