Ellen Day Two

Sheretin ViewAfter a 2:00 AM bed time last night, We had some of our blinds open and we’re up at 8:30 this morning. We’re a bit fatigued, but ready for the excitement of today! Our plan is to (hopefully get some coffee) go to Universal City Walk and hang out for a bit then we’ll be picked up by a car and taken to the studio. Once the show is done, we’re off to the airport and we’ll be there until our flight. We’ll likely be home around midnight tonight!

Hit the break for today’s live blog!

    Coffee is generally complimentary, while everything else insults you.

    I mean, everything else costs money.
