-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.]
