If only I could repeat the beginning of Day 4 for every day of my life...
we had in-room massages. Aaaaahhhhh....
For lunch, we trekked back down to Pike Place and snacked on mac-n-cheese from Beecher's Handmade Cheese. So good. Did you know that those big cylinders of cheese are called truckles? Who knew?
So...did any of you take a guess at the little bit of trivia I offered up two posts ago? (What celebrity dined at The Athenian Inn while making a film?) It's not like the hint was super-obvious. ha. Yep...Mr. Tom Hanks. We got a picture of Matt and Michael sitting where Tom and Rob Reiner sat. Fun times.
Of course, we also stopped by the "original" Starbucks. Have y'all tried "fresh press" coffee? Try it if you haven't. Delicious.
Matt decided to stay in the hotel room to work on his talk for Resurgence...which was, by the way, amazing. I'm so proud of him. If you get the chance, listen to the mp3 of the Q & A (in addition to Matt's sessions, of course!). Piper was in rare form. Matt was simply giddy.
A picture of the Q & A...thanks to Scott Thomas of A29. Yes, Mark and Matt are giving each other dap.
I entitled this picture "All we need is Luke now." Get it??
The rest of the crew (minus prego Natalie who needed some much needed rest) rode the monorail to the Space Needle. Revelation #1: monorails have drivers...I thought they just ran on computers. Revelation #2: monorail drivers have poor senses of humor. Case in point: Josh tried the ol' "I bet this thing corners on rails" joke...went over like a lead balloon.

The Space Needle was spectacular. Although, I got motion-sickness! I guess there's subtle movement being up that high. I felt dizzy and a million pounds. So weird.
I know I keep promising this but...I should be getting a cd from Michael with our pictures. Soon, my friends.
