A quick update from San Francisco! :)  
Well, I'm finally in San Francisco! :) I just checked into the hotel and oh my gosh - it's beautiful! For someone who is SO used to minimalist hotels (just for the sake of somewhere to sleep...) This is gorgeous! :) The room is HUGE, and the bed looks SO comfortable! I wish I was staying here longer than just three nights. :)

I have to say that from what I've seen, the city is incredibly beautiful! As we were driving over the Bay Bridge this evening at sunset, I couldn't believe just how beautiful everything was... This is only my second time in SF and I wasn't too fond of the city on my first trip (I'm not quite sure why). I can already tell that this trip will leave me with a much better impression. :)

The first thing I did when I got here was head across the street to Mel's Drive In and I ordered the BEST Supreme Hamburger in the world (it had american cheese, bacon, and ham... YUM!) with a side of onion rings - it was one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. Too bad the service was so bad - the guy who took my order was SO rude. :[ It's a shame though, because I'd really like to go back there - hopefully he isn't working when I go back tomorrow. :P

My conference begins at 7:30 tomorrow morning. :[ I saw a lot of men standing around talking outside in the lobby who were all wearing suits - so I'm sure they're here for the conference - somehow they just look like NASD people. ;P Once again (like last year) I don't feel like I fit in here. Everyone is YEARS older than me and the industry is all dominated by older men in suits... :P Hopefully the conference will be okay... I'm starting to feel a little of that apprehension again. :P

On a non-SF note, Mark went to see the special advance preview of "Rent" last night. He had free tickets because his printing company printed all the promotional material for our local radio station (who was sponsoring the premiere). He loved it and he promised me that we'll both see it once I come home. :) I can't believe that just a few months ago, he hadn't even heard the music from "Rent" - now he's a bonafied addict. ;)

I'm off to take a VERY long (and much needed) shower and then crawl into my huge, comfy bed. Hope you're all having a nice evening! :)

You're also here during a warmish part of the "winter." So that's also fortunate. ;-)

Yay! Welcome!

Brrrr! Even the warmer parts of winter are cold for me! Remember, I throw on a jacket when the weather goes down to 65 degrees. ;) (Hawaii people are pathetic about the cold!) ;)

And thanks! :) I can tell, I'm really going to like it here! :D

There's also a Mel's in the San Fernando Valley.

I was just reading that! I must find it the next time I'm in LA. It's a cute place, with nice atmosphere (except for that rude worker) :[ The food is GREAT, though! :D

It is on Ventura, a few blocks E of the 405, between Sepulveda and Van Nuys.

Oh, thanks for the information! Maybe I'll head that way when I'm down there this coming weekend. :D

You're in San Fran and Andrea is departing tomorrow on her trip. :/ What timing! Have you two ever met?

I wish I were in San Fran -- I love that city!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on November 16th, 2005 04:06 am (UTC)
I know! :( I'm SO sad that I just missed her! :( I've never met her before either - which makes me even sadder. The good news is that I doubt this will be my last trip up here so hopefully the next time, I'll be able to meet up with her. :)

I am so sad... you're here, I am here and I won't get to meet you. when your conference starts, I'll be well on my way to Dallas. Had I not had the massage this afternoon I would have met up with you at the airport or the hotel. :) I am glad you may be here again though. We'll definitely meet then.

The weather is absolutely gorgeous tonight!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on November 16th, 2005 02:54 pm (UTC)
I know! :( It's okay though because I'm sure I'll be back and we can meet up then! :D And I have to agree about the weather here last night - just gorgeous! Have a safe trip!

Thank you!! :) I hope your trip here was nice. (OH, and I missed your anniversary... I hope it was a wonderfully romantic one!!)

I'm glad you made it to San Fran safely... you aren't TOO far away from me!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on November 16th, 2005 02:57 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Stacey! And you're right, I'm not too far away!! :) It's a shame I'm not closer, though - we could go see "Rent" together. ;)

I've only been to SF once before, but I can already tell that I'm going to get addicted to the city! :D

I've always wanted to go to San Francisco!

Hope your conference goes well!

I have to go eat dinner now...you've made me hungry, hehe! :)

You and Gill should both come out to the West Coast for a theatre trip sometime. You can see great shows in SF, and then go down to LA to see more shows! :D :D

Heeehee - that burger was so good, I'm still thinking about it! :D
