Day Two: Hollywood & Highland and the WB Studio Tour

@Sheraton Universal Hotel, Los Angeles, CA

So on Wednesday we got up and fixed some extra reservations. Then we got up and checked out Hollywood and Highland, where we got to see the Walk of Fame and Grauman's Chinese Theatre. Both were a ton of fun and SO AMAZING!!

After that, and some lunch at this fabulous restaurant, we went over to the WB Studio and took the tour there. It was a lot of fun! We got to see a bunch of stuff and especially cool, we got to see the CENTRAL PERK SET from FRIENDS!!! And then we saw our first official celebrity....


He was really sweet and VERY SEXY!! He was filming the final day of ER! He said his friend was Rosemary Clooney and I said "Well, he's looking good for a dead chick" and he replied, "Who me?" I gave him a look and said, "No Rosemary!" and he laughed.



More later!

Day One: Universal Studios and A Night Out!

@ Sheraton Universal, Los Angeles, CA

So Universal Studios was a ton of fun!! We started off with the studio tour which was a really fun. The best for me was the Bates Motel from Psycho. I really liked that there was a live actor.

Then we hit some of the rides. My favorite, hands down, was the Simpson's ride. It was this kickass motion simulator that I just loved. We did Jurassic Park which sucked in my opinion because we got wet, and I HATE wet rides! Thankfully it was hot and lunch time and my shoes were dry, otherwise I really would have been in a bad mood.

After lunch, we hit the Mummy Ride, a fucking blast! And Backdraft, boring. Lastly, we went to the Special Effects show, which was actually kind of fun. We walked City Walk for a bit, although there wasn't much to see. Most of the things there are tourist traps. Bubba Gump, Hard Rock Cafe, etc.

That evening we took the tram down the hill, then walked back up! Yikes! California is all hills! So we were hot, exhausted but still excitable, so we took a dip in the pool, showered and hit the town. We went to this awesome restaurant that A&E told us about called Micheli's. It had this awesome live jazz and the waiters would often stop and sing. It was REALLY COOL!! What a lovely way to spend the evening!

We went back to the hotel after that, hoping to find some cool evening entertainment, but nothing seemed to work out, and we were just plain tired, so we crashed.

There is still so much to say! So much to tell! Yet, I fear I have to go. I am behind, I know that, but I am exhausted!

Family Connections in the Big CA

@ Shereton Universal Hotel, Los Angeles, CA

Deary me! There is so much to say!

So Monday night we came in and got a call from A. She was heading out to Alaska and wanted to meet me before I left. So she invited us over to dinner. E was out at a party, but he joined us later.

So she bought us Indian food for dinner and I had so much fun chatting with her and E. I feel like they are such a great resource and I feel like they are kind of prepared to be that resource for me. It's so great!

After that, we came back and passed out. Then yesterday we got up and did Universal Studios. That was a ton of fun!

But I am sorta tired. More later!

Arriving at the promised land!

@ Sherton Universal Hotel, Los Angeles, CA

Boy oh boy has it been a day! And I want a shower now so maybe I'll write later.

Ok, later. Here we go:

So we left Mesquite today, a little late, but it was sich a restful sleep! I don't care. We hit Vegas an hour later and we got out and hung around the strip for a bit. It was actually tons of fun!

Then we got back on the road and headed to CALI!! We got in about 5 or so.

It was so nice!! This place is so beautiful!! Confusing, but beautiful!!

And driving is...intersting.
