    I’m staying with my parents about 15 minutes away in the city of Orange. If there are any girls on a really strict budget and who need a place to stay you’re welcome to stay there. We have a couch in the living room and a guest room we can put an air mattress on. It’s not the most comfortable but it’s free. You’re welcome to catch a ride to the conference with me as well.

      • Lisa Sahl

        Muhammed, Are you still looking for a room and open to sharing? I would like to do Friday night or late afternoon through Sunday morning arrangement so that I have privacy while I’m preparing for a few things – as I mentioned I’m interviewing with one of the networks so things will be stressful when I first arrive until late Friday afternoon. That’s two nights of the three. But if you’re interested, you need to get in touch with me so we can coordinate and work things out.
