It's been awhile, eh?

Truth be told, after running about all day at work I generally don't have the ambition to sit down and think. No thinking means no emails and no blogs. However, I like reading blogs of other people so perhaps people like reading my blog. Just a thought...

Since I last posted I haven't been fired! That, my friends, is a good thing. I also took a whirl-wind trip to Los Angeles. Vanessa and I booked our flight/hotel on Monday night and zoomed off in a big plane on Friday morning. Our last-minute package included our flight and hotel and was a fabulous $302.00!! Pretty spiffy considering I was looking at flights initially and they alone were in the $400 - $450 range.

So Vanessa and I flew into LA Friday morning a couple of weeks back. Our flight left at about 7:00 and we were lucky enough to catch a drive to the airport with Derek who was going home for a long weekend! In a busy airport day, another canadian, Sarah, was also going home for a few days. Vanessa and I got into LA at about 9:45. By the time we got to our hotel and ate and headed back out it was about 2:00. We went to glorious Hollywood! Actually, make that "glorious" Hollywood! Ahem, quite the scuzzy place. The Kodak Theatre that hosts the Oscars, i.e., what we see on TV, and the Chinese Theatre take up about one block of space on the north side. The south side has El Capitan, a restored cinema thanks to Disney. The other blocks... umm, rather dodgy. Sketchville, USA.

And, of course, that's all I have time to write at the moment. Pushing the clock as usual. Big posts are coming though, I promise! I am off for TWO WHOLE DAYS and have NO plans! For once, I am excited about that. A wee bit of rest and relaxation :) I plan on doing some emailing, seriously, and posting, seriously!


Heart you all... ;)
