We stayed with our friends Susan Avallone and Carr D'Angelo. They own a comics shop, and are also movie people. They couldn't have been more generous with their wonderful home (and guesthouse, where we stayed).
I met Susan and Carr three years ago right after Calvin and I got married. Susan and I bonded instantly. I was really happy to get to hang out with them for a more extended visit.
Susan and Carr had a party for Calvin to celebrate his award on our last night there. Calvin's brother Chris came with his wife Kimberly. Chris was very funny, Kimberly was very charming, it was great to see them.

It was really hot when we first arrived in LA.
Calvin interviewed Carr and his partner Jud Meyers at their store.
Yes, I really loved the pool.
