Doug & Sheri

Here in LA....

Just a quick hi from LA! Mark & I got in safely (albeit very late) last night and I've been fighting with this wireless access (which has been more off than on) the whole day... :P One bit of advice for anyone traveling to the LA area... DO NOT USE ACE CAR RENTAL!! I sadly made reservations with them for a car for this trip and with the rate that I'd reserved, I didn't expect much... However, I never dreamed that they'd be a complete rip-off, though! :P In addition to the great rate they quoted me per day they MADE us purchase the liability insurance which more than doubled our price for the car per day (which ended up costing me more than I would've paid had I gone with a reputable company like Budget...) To top it off, the car they gave us smelled like smoke and alcohol... Never again! :P I've learned my lesson, from now on I'm sticking with known companies!! :(

Mark & I spent the entire morning at the mall - first the Burbank Media Center, then the Glendale Galleria. :) When we were done, my feet were aching and for the first time, I think I was actually shopped out (I never thought I'd say that!) We ate lunch at In & Out Burger (we have to go there each time we're in LA and Mark was so excited to finally try the double double animal style!) and Red Robin for dinner (where I had THE BEST speckled lemonade - which is lemonade with strawberries - EVER!!)

Tonight we're off to see Kevin in "City of Angels" at UCLA. :) His part is a rather small one, but I'm looking forward to seeing the show in general since it's one of my favorite musicals (Kevin having a part in it is just bonus.) I'm sorry I haven't had the chance to comment on your entries (though I did read them) and reply to all of your comments, but I promise to get to it tonight when I get back. :) Hope you all have a nice evening!! :D
