*smiles* Um...yay.

I'm home. And I was going to start the mother of all entries and tell all about:
-Getting up and ready
-O'Hare and the flight out
-Santa Monica Pier (My first trip to the Ocean!!)
-Chadwick School
-Seeing Sacrilicious (a band) at the Roxy
[That was all the first day. We were up for 22 hours straight.]
-Sony Studios Tour (seeing Oded Fehr????)
-Hollywood Boulevard, the Chinese Theatre and the Walk of Fame
-USC and seeing the acapella group
-Dinner and the singing Italian Man
-The Lion King (AMAZING!!!)
[End Day Two...another full day]
-Disneyland (I saw Tigger beat up Pooh backstage)
[Sure, it doesn't seem like a lot for a whole day...]
-Sightseeing UCLA
-Shopping at the Mall (I found some awesome shops)
-LAX and the flight home

And those are just the big chronological things. Not mentioning all the little fun details. *sighs* I know there will be things I forget. And that makes me sad because it's a once in a lifetime thing and I don't want to ever forget a minute of it.

It was definitely a jam-packed weekend of fun. It was so great. And I love California. LA is so completely different than Chicago. And not just the weather and palm trees (Yes, there were palm trees EVERYWHERE.) It just has a totally different feel. Very flat and spread out. I can't even put my finger on it...I guess it was more relaxed. The "City of Big Shoulders" is a bustling metropolis indeed.

But I'm really tired. So big entry is going to have to wait, and I'm still skimming my way through my friends list. I started reading, now I'm skimming. Might give up soon. Eeep.

But I had a fantastic time. I wish I never had to come home. I miss LA. *sniffles*


[EDIT (12:53am 02/18/02):
One, skip=225. That is all.
Two, everything in LA can be connected to Pretty Woman. Or at least I can.
Three, I adore Chicago. Absolutely and completely. I have a great amount of city-pride and don't hesistate to say that I think it's the best city in the world. I can imagine myself living in this area for the rest of my life. But California and LA were nice. Beautiful. I could also imagine myself having a summer home and living there for 3 months and sporatic weeks throughout the year.]

-Sony Studios Tour (seeing Oded Fehr????)

I don't know if you even care, but he was raised in my neighborhood, and went to the same school that I'm in. :)
Just thought I'll share a little.

Ooo...I love random trivia like that. No one cool went to my school, but Gary Sinece grew up in the town right next to mine and went to our "sister school".

Oh, and Michael Jordan lives about 5 miles away from me (or at least his wife or something does since he's in Washington now). Several other Bulls players and coaches (including Scottie Pippin, Dennis Rodman and Phil Jackson) have lived in the area also, because the training center is in my town. *nods* Phil Jackson's twin sons graduated with one of my sisters, and one of his older daughters graduated with my brother.

I love random and crazy connections. Like the Kevin Bacon Game for real life. :o)
