Today was a great day at my HOBY job. We went to the Hyatt Regency for a meeting about an upcoming event that Solange is planning. We met with an event person from the hotel out on the patio and it was simply gorgeous. I was then told that an episode of Burn Notice was filmed in the cabanas. (I plan on going through the seasons of BN on my iTunes to try and find the scene... dork? yes! obsessive? absolutely!)
After we left the Hyatt, we went to the Beverly Hills Hotel, the location for the HOBY gala in 2010. The Crystal Ballroom is beyond gorgeous; it's going to be a great event. We sat in the lobby for a bit and discussed the cost of a room, the gorgeous hotel, and celebrities that stay at the BHH. As we walked out the door (having seen absolutely zero famous folks), I passed through a small group of twenty-somethings and said "Excuse me."
Solange: "Well, now you've seen a celebrity."
Me: "I'm sorry, what?! Who in that group was famous?"
Solange: "Wait, you didn't see Lionel Richie?"
Me: "WHAT?! NO!!!!"
I don't consider myself a Celebrity Seeker, but I literally walked right past the man who sings my current ringtone!!
And I didn't even SEE him!!! Oh boo.
Oh well, how was YOUR day?? LOL -E
