After a nice cup of french vanilla flavored oatmeal in my room (brewed in the strangest coffee pot ever), we headed over to the Staples Convention Center in downtown LA. It's almost amazing to me how a convention center morphs from the abandon-warehouse look into a brilliantly lit, booth-packed, glittering, sparkling expo. It was a good day. I had a good time hooking up all of the AV equipment (everybody else is afraid to mess with all the cables and electricity), and enjoyed testing out the big speakers with a little quality Velvet Revolver. Then we went out for some awesome LA sushi.

The highlight of my day thus far was finding out that my friend Gary-Paul Prince of Peachpit Press is an artist! And an amazingly good one! He has his own gallery and everything. It just goes to show you that if you take the time to listen to people, you can learn the most fascinating things about them.
