SCBWILA11 – Day 0

Or is that Day -1? Not much of import to report. On Twitter, I’ve seen much exclaiming over luminaries at the faculty dinner, but since I’m not faculty and not yet a luminary, I’ve only met the regular folk so far. Many delightful people and a quite swanky hotel (the Century Plaza/Hyatt Regency). Met my roommate, Meredith, and we walked over to have dinner at BJ’s (where I indulged in their triple chocolate dessert involving a melty warm chocolate cookie, a scoop of chocolate-chocolate chip ice cream and a square of dark chocolate).

Here’s the daytime view from our room on the 17th floor:






Complete with renowned L.A. smog.


And here’s a shot of the fountain in the median of Avenue of the Stars, as well as a pic of the hotel lobby with many attendees confabbing:






I’ll report more tomorrow when I’ve attended workshops and actually have something worthy of reporting. Very much looking forward to all the excitement!
