Orange and Downtown Disney
I woke up at 3:30am to catch a flight to California and surprisingly everyone I met on my way was chirpy and super sweet. Cab driver, woman at bookstore, girl at bon pain, man I sat next to in the plane (although he let out some naaaasty gas, eww. I'm surprised the oxygen masks didn't deploy). David had been in California for work all week so I was excited to meet him there and spend the weekend in L.A.-L.A., Hell hell-A-LA. Sorry gang but there are so many songs about California and LA that have been popping in my head I feel like I'm in a special TV musical episode of my life. Just waiting to see someone breaking into a song while talking to me and have no one around being surprised by it...
We've been to Cali a few times - in fact, we got engaged in San Diego -
but it will be our first time staying in LA and visiting Hollywood in all its glamour. Who knows, maybe we'll see a few stars and play paparazzi in hope of selling the pictures for a couple hundred (thousand) dollars. Or even better, maybe David will get discovered for his ... juggling talents and become a big star!! Or I'll get discovered for my.. hmm.. Wait.. My talents in... Hmm...nope... I've got nuttin. David is definitely our best shot!!!
I arrived at the hotel a couple hours before David. He had been staying at a Hilton in Orange for the week. One more night and then we move right into LA.
For dinner, we decided to go downtown Disney
so we could walk around and grab a bite to eat there. What a great place! They have stores and restaurants for both kids and the kids at heart. The lego store had a life size giraffe and Darth Vador made of lego. They also had a huge Woody... Take your mind out of the gutter, not that kind of woody, the Woody from Toy Story . They also had a "Cars" store where you can chose your race car like Lightning Mc Queen and you can build it yourself and add stickers, rims, flashing headlights and much more. Those are the times when we think having a little boy would be fun... Or be a kid again ourselves would totally work too. We ended up going to Jazz kitchen for dinner, which sucked. You know we love good food but we are not picky eaters either. But serving cold frozen breakfast potatoes as a dinner side or cold greasy green beans should be punishable buy law... Especially in an expensive restaurant like that. But hey, the beer and dessert were good so it didn't put a damper on our great mood
