*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.]
