played guitar and keyboard in David's band. She told me it was a really nice tattoo, I thanked her, andshe left. It's not often I get complete strangers asking about my tattoo, so it was a cool moment. :DAfter we left Denny's, we headed off in search of the Wal-Mart. But somehow, it managed toelude us. We passed a lot of stores, but none of them were a Wal-Mart. Kathy hadn't had any way toprint out the directions, and none of us had a smart phone, so we were just relying on her memory toget us there. Finally, we found a Target, and she said that would suffice. lol.Kathy was a pretty quick clothes shopper, so it didn't take long for her to find a good dress forthe occasion. Then it was off to the shoe section, where she found a pair of flip flops.After leaving Target, we decided to head back to the hotels, where we'd each have a chance tochange before heading out for dinner before the show. We settled on 5 PM as our departure time, witha goal of getting to the venue by 8:30 PM. By the time Jeannine dropped me off at my hotel, it wasalmost 4 PM. So I only had about an hour to kill before heading back out.Got checked in to my hotel, only to find out that my room was actually across the street fromthe main office, in a second section of the hotel. It was a very strange set up. Half the hotel was on oneside of the street, and half the hotel was on the other. Luckily, though, the street was just a side street,so I didn't have to deal with a lot of traffic in order to get over to my room. I was on the bottom floor,and the doors opened to the outside. I was a bit freaked-out by this set-up, especially since I wasn'teven near the main part of the hotel. Jeannine had assured me, though, that this area of town waspretty safe, so that calmed me down a bit.Called my mom to let her know I had made it to my hotel. Then I used my phone to tweet backand forth with a few folks. I really wanted to know how the new DCO looked, and a few people werekind enough to give me some details. Thanks to those folks!After tweeting for awhile, I realized I needed to hurry and get changed before dinner. Took mybraid out, and had lovely wavy hair. Yay. Started changing my clothes, and discovered I had a bit of aproblem that I probably shouldn't relate here in my recap. LOL. That's what happens when you'redealing with clothing items you haven't worn yet. Called my mom in a panic, and she advised me to askJeannine if she could help me out. So I called Jeannine, and she came to my rescue. Yay Jeannine!After Jeannine rescued me (with her hubby in tow), we picked up Kathy and headed towardWest Hollywood, where the venue was located. On the way, we stopped at a Chinese restaurant called"Genghis Cohen." They also have a small music venue, and apparently Phil Marshall has played therebefore. We ordered three dishes plus an appetizer, and it was really good! I probably could have eatentwice as much as I did, but just because I'm off of my diet doesn't mean I should go right back to how Iwas eating before. In fact, if I did that, I'd just gain all the weight right back. So I limited myself to onlytwo small-ish helpings of two of the dishes. The other one was all vegetables, so this carnivore wasn'tinterested. Ha!
