Shopping bliss... :D  
And so the conference continues. The best part of today was taking a "carryout" version of the lunch they provided (salmon and caesar salad - YUM!) and heading over to the San Francisco Shopping Center for a quick little shopping trip during lunch. :) The mall was HUGE!! So huge in fact, the first three floors (or so!) were all shops (like Victoria's Secret, etc.) and all the floors above it were Nordstrom! I was in shopping heaven!!

I bought some shoes from Nordstrom, then walked over to the Virgin Megastore on Market Street where I bought; "Applause" (the original cast recording), "Brownstone - The Musical," "Anything Goes" (it's a unique recording I've never seen before with Gregg Edelman, Louise Gold, etc. - I had to get it), and "Sail Away" (the original London cast recording with Elaine Stritch). I know that in the case of both "Applause" and "Sail Away" I'll be VERY disappointed at the men singing the roles of Bill Sampson and Johnny Van Meir (*SIGH*) but, I was curious to hear the original recordings of both shows. :)

Spent some time this evening at a reception with the two men from my home office. They were pretty amusing outside of the office and one (who I normally don't get along with much at work, I was able to laugh and have a great time talking to...) I think that's one of the nicest things about these conferences, getting to know these people outside of work. I really enjoyed my time with them. :)

On a Kevin note, found some pictures of him from the Harold Arlen concert on BWW.Com. I didn't know it but John McDaniel was the musical director for the concert that night. :) Small world! :) And I've been looking everywhere, but NO photos of the Ovations anywhere on any of the wire sites. :[ There were SO many photographers (and press) there that night! Where the heck were they all from? And the Ovations were being filmed for Showtime... I haven't heard anything about it airing. :P

Tomorrow I fly back to Burbank and tomorrow night I'm meeting lindasings for dinner and then "Open Window" at Pasadena Playhouse. It'll be SO nice to see her since I missed seeing her at the Ovations! It'll also be nice to be back in LA. I really like SF, but going back to LA is like going home. :) I may not have internet access after I leave tomorrow (I know my hotel in Burbank has NO wireless...) so if I'm not able get online after tomorrow, have a nice weekend everyone! :D

OMG but it sounds like you found shopping nirvana!

Oooh back to LA! I haven't been to LA in 10 years. Wow but time flies.

Wait. No internet? Wait. *sob*

I usually don't shop at all when I'm home - I save it all for my trips so I don't feel too guilty about spending money.

It was WONDEFUL!! I had to fight the urge to stay there through the after lunch session. I was a good girl and went back, though... *SIGH*

I know,... no internet! What'll I do with myself?! Wah! :( Hopefully I'll be able to drive to Kinkos and log into their wireless at least once a day. We'll see. :P

Edited: Wow - I must really be exhausted, I'm repeating myself! ;)

I'm glad you had a nice shopping spree! :) Must have been fun. I wish I could go shopping.

I wanted to thank you for thinking of Laura. You are such a sweetheart!!! :) *hug*

I hope you have a nice trip to Burbank. Have fun on the rest of your trip. I also hope the trip home is good as well. See you when you get the chance to post next! :)

I didn't so much buy a lot (well, CDs I did *hangs head*) as much as I had fun just looking around. :) I love to look at huge upscale shopping centers (even if I can't afford anything there!) ;P

I'm glad that Laura got my package. I still wish there was more that I could do for her. :(

Thanks for the nice wishes, Carrie! Hopefully I've used up all my traveling bad luck for this trip and everything will be okay for my flight back. ;)

...and just remember that when you get home, there should be a CD waiting for you.
Sheri: Stephanie & Kate Monstershutterbug93 on November 18th, 2005 01:53 pm (UTC)
Oh, I just spoke with Mark last night and the CD arrived!! THANK YOU so much!!! :) Please do let me know if I can send you anything in return or if you'd like me to send you the money for the shipping. THANK YOU so much!! :D

Nothing in return is necessary. That's just how I am.

Awww, thank you - you are so sweet! :D Forgive me for asking above, but that's just how I am too. :)
