If you’re just tuning in, start here.
As news of my adrenal mass started to sink in, I realized it was time to start making plans. I drafted Mom to take care of me
(obviously) for the period when I’ll be in the hospital for surgery and immediately after, and I thought about how to tell the people at work. Knowing that I will be out of commission post-op for four to six weeks, I made plans for some essential business travel.
So there I was in
Los Angeles, one of my favorite places. It was a productive trip with lots of meetings and a little fun in the form of attending After Paradise again (thanks Millsy!). I met two charming ladies, Catherine Giudici Lowe and Katie Lowes of Scandal, and one handsome man, Samuel Lowe.
He’s so cute!

First read Part 1 and Part 2.
This final installment is probably the most boring because I worked nearly non-stop.
Nearly. And then I went on vacation. More on that soon –
Third stop: San Francisco
I packed for cool, rainy weather. Naturally neither condition materialized. But I’m not complaining.
While I was in SF, I met Tommy Lee. He was very nice and is, apparently, quite the foodie.*

This is Part 1 of a three- or four-part post. We’ll see how things go.
OK, it was actually ME who was gone.
Sorry for the silence and also the lack of warning. First, I was
distracted by this.
Then I went on an epic thirteen-day, four-stop
business trip that was preceded by an additional one-night business trip. All told, I stayed in six hotels and one apartment ( his, twice) between January 27 and February 11. It was a LOT, even by my standards of biz travel.
Here are a few pics and stories from the first stop of the trip,
for the curious. Palm Springs,
London is awesome.
sick. I sampled the United Kingdom’s very best over-the-counter drugs.
It could have been worse. I was the kind of sick you work through, not sick in bed. When I wasn’t working, I snapped a few photos.
Poppies for Remembrance Day
Had a nice breakfast here
Harrod’s at night
Cruising under London Bridge
I stayed at the elegant
Landmark in Marylebone, and enjoyed meals at Roka, The Grazing Goat, and Coco Momo. And for the most part, I paid a pretty penny–London is not cheap!
Later today, I’m heading to London.
I had planned to hammer out several kick-ass blog posts (or, at the very least, play catch-up) on the long flight. Alas, my flight doesn’t have wifi.
Can you imagine? In this day and age?!
While I’m up in the air, please enjoy these posts you may have missed and some new reads too.
As you might already know, I
travel a lot. These trips give me lots of opinions on how hotels should be set up to best accommodate guests.
Here are a few more things I’d do if I owned a hotel. You can read the
original list here.
