Day One: LAX to SFX

Day One: LAX to SFX

Dec. 31 2010

12:30 pm

Timmy was disappointed to learn that a first class ticket does not automatically grant entry into United’s Red Carpet Club. I did my best to console him with a café mocha from Starbucks.

Meanwhile I have half an hour until my flight boards and I am considering getting a sandwich since Timmy and I were deprived of the snackey poos we were promised at the Red Carpet Club. I’ll probably pass on the off chance they might actually feed me in first class. Either way I’m sure I’ll be pouncing on Dad and demanding sushi as soon as we land.

Thankfully, I had no trouble with TSA in LAX. They didn’t even ask about my medication. Hopefully this trend continues for the rest of the trip. Everybody cross your fingers.

12:51 pm

Aaaaaaaand I just killed ten minutes cleaning up my desktop. I can actually see my background now! Still hungry though.

4:37 pm

Hotel restaurant needs to open nao! I WILL EAT ALL THE THINGS!

Oooo, Twilight Zone marathon…

6:59 pm

Uhhhhg. I ate ALL the things.

9:39 pm

Hotel bed is squishy ^.^

10:11 pm

Commercial for a new blood glucose meter from Medicare comes on TV and the announcer man says, "And the best part is you no longer have to prick your fingers."

ME: Well you have to prick something.

DAD: That's what she said.

12:00 am

Fireworks!

Omg, you guys...

I just saw Tron 2. I need a lightcycle right goddamn now.

Vrooom!

And the soundtrack was bitchin! See sample:


I fight for the users! Hell yeah!

Ok, that movie left me way more bouncy than I need to be right now. But it was really awesome. Srsly.

Yeah, you're right. I should probably go to bed now. Kay bye!

Some observations

Dear City,

You know that stop sign over by Capitol and Gaffey? The one that's been run over, like, ten times now? Yeah, that one. What is the point of putting it in the middle of the intersection anyway? The plastic poles lined with reflective strips that surround it don't seem to protect it from getting run down every couple months.

How much does it cost you to replace that sign every time someone runs it over? I'm sorry, City. It just...it really doesn't seem worth it. Just thought I'd let you know.

Signed,

The resident college student who just doesn't get it.


Also, the new bathrooms in the university library are awesome. I swear the toilet seats are ergonomically designed to cradle your backside.

Thus ends today's random observations.

Christmas Update

Alright, Timmy, we've kept the people waiting long enough. It's time we explained just what the heck's going on in the next two weeks.



Yes, I know it's Christmas. So that means we have plenty of time to sit down and talk about Paris and--hey! Get your head out of that stocking! You can eat your Christmas chocolates later.

Don't give me that look...

Alright. So, long story short, Dad and Timmy and I are flying to Paris for about a week. Dad's been wanting to take me since forever. This will be my first time out of the country. Unless you want to count that one time I crossed the border into Canada for, like, five minutes. Timmy's very excited. Aren't you, Timmy?

Timmy?

Timmy! How many times do I have to tell you to lay off the cherry cordials? Now come back here, we're writing a blog post.

Where were we? Oh yes. Timmy and I will be flying up to San Francisco New Years Eve and then Dad and the two of us will fly from San Francisco to London on New Years day where I will get to spend one glorious hour in Heathrow airport jumping up and down and exclaiming, "OMG I'm in London! Eeeeeeee!"

After that it's a quick flight over the channel to Paris. Some of the highlights on this trip will be:

The Louvre (duh)
Musée d'Orsay
Musée de Cluny
Pére Lachaise Cemetery
Versailles (possibly)

I think Dad may have mentioned Montmartre as well and then of course there's the food, which I keep hearing is an attraction unto itself. Anyway, it should be lots of fun.

You all know how I am by now when it comes to updating the blog while on vacation. All I can say is I am bringing my computer and I will do my best. If nothing else I will try and post a picture every day to keep it exciting.

Timmy and I return to the states on January 10th and I get back home on the 11th. Then on the 12th my friends Scott and Eden and flying in from Canada for two weeks of fun and shenanigans. And, of course, Disneyland. They fly back to Canada right before I go back to school. January is going to be freaking awesome.

So that's my update and now you all know why I was freaking out at the amount of snow being dumped on Paris a couple weeks ago. Luckily, the snow has calmed down considerably so I should be able to deal with a reasonable amount by the time we get there. One of my Christmas presents from Mom was new soles for my boots so now I wont go slippy slidey on the wet streets of Paree. Hurrah!

Anyway, happy holidays, merry Christmas, and goodwill towards everyone and not just men. I leave you now with my Mom's new favorite Christmas song.


Merry Christmas, from Chiron Beta Prime.

Snoooooooooow

Too much snow! Do not want! D:


Oh yeah, I'm going to Paris. Did I mention that? More when I get home or find an outlet for the charger.
