Update

Thanks for checking in everyone, and sorry if I haven't been updating. I think we now have equal readership of John's friend's and my friends on this site.

The good news is that I've had more "enjoying Los Angeles" moments than I've had "hating LA" moments, recently. I only had one Anti moment this week. That was while I was buying shoes. I have zero sense of style, and as you've heard me complain before, am desperate for clothes that suit my personality more than the plain jeans and crap I have now. And in these them thar parts, shoes are a big deal. People are always checking out your shoes, if not judging you by them. So, I bought some obnoxious yellow ones. They are soooo comfy. And I just can't wear the spikey chic heels that seem to always be acceptable. Neither John or I like me being taller than him, and that's a good excuse, but the other reason is that I haven't grown up wearing them and I'm a complete klutz, so I'd fall and break my ankle anyway. Yellow, baby, BRIGHT yellow.

We took them for a walk on Melrose Saturday morning. They fit right in. Lunch was at a great hole in the wall called Joan's on Third. Not really what we were looking for, but now I know where to find some cool treats if I'm ever off to a picnic or need a caterer.

On Sunday morning we were dressed and out of the house by about 7:30am. We headed over to the Rose Bowl Flea Market and man, was that fun. Next time we'll have to rent a van because I found some furniture that I wanted and we had no where to take it home with, let alone put it once we got it here. We did bag up some little stuff - an Underdog glass, two Planter's peanuts cocktail glasses, a Gambler's Scene West newspaper from 1982 featuring Jack Strauss winning the WSOP. And then an old style kitchen wall hanging thing that says Hamburgers Taste Good, or something like that. But the armoires I could've had!!! They do it every second Sunday of the month and we've already decided this will be a regular trip while we're here. It just might be the best flea market ever. We were there for 2.5 hours and only got through half of it.

Other than that it was working and poker. Oh yeah, and in case you hadn't realized, it's girl scout cookie time. We've already gone through two boxes. And while we're on the food subject, two things. One, I'm cooking more. Be forewarned, falafel gives you gas. But it's worth it. And on the second note, we are constantly searching for a Mexican hang out restaurant. Last night we tried Mucho Mas, and I liked it a lot. It's hard to find a good mexican restaurant in the Valley. The lines at Casa Vega and Don Cuco are just too ridiculous. Mexico City is really fun, but the chips don't suit John, and that's his fave part. All this said, I just remembered we had a really good dinner at Senor Fred's but is that place to full of itself? We'll have to try it again and double check....

For those keeping tabs on John, he's leaing for Spring Break this week, then I leave, then he leaves. We probably won't see eachother for three weeks. The upside is Vegas on his return!!!! Let's all say it like a mantra-- THEhotel!

Current: Burbank, CA
Next: San Francisco, CA (still working on dates, end of the month)

Joan's on Third--a hole in the wall? Guess you've been movin' on up! This is my favorite gourmet deli in LA, with an incredible selection of seasonal dishes (pastas, salads, sandwiches, etc.). Not to mention their cheese and dessert selection--even their ice tea is good. More importantly, almost every time I've been there I've seen famous people...including Gina Gershon, Jennifer Coolidge, Jennifer Tilly, and Tobey Maguire.

of the surgery itself, the status of the patient's skin after the
fact is often not taken into account
