L.A. Woman

Well… not quite. More like L.A. tourist. Today is day 3 of my west coast vacation and all is well. I’ve done a lot of sightseeing and with sunny skies and 75-degree temps, there’s really nothing to complain about.

The “shakes” subsided when I saw the Thespian at LAX, and since initial awkward jabbering, it’s like old hat here. It’s funny how time can change your perception of people. For example, for some reason, I remembered him shorter and thinner and less athletic. I have no idea why. He later told me he thought I’d be “Plump Jenny.” Weird. Also, offensive on both parts.

So, past initial hellos, things have been great. He’s lived here for a long time and has shown me quite a bit already. Here are some of the things we’ve done.

  • Gruman’s Theater and Walk of Fame

Griffith Observatory and hiking trails

  • We’ve also just hung out. I’ve been a tad out of sorts. Between N.J., Austin and L.A., I was in 3 different time zones in 4 days and my eating, sleeping and body have been off. I’m starting to feel more calibrated now.

    Today we are going to check out Mulholland Drive and the Burbank area. Then I am really excited to see the Kaiser Chiefs perform at El Rey Theater tonight. I don’t know their music well, but live music is always a blast and you can’t really go wrong dancing and boozing the night away.
