10 days, and my butts a pancake!

Hey guys. sorry about the technical difficulties. i think we got it worked out now. Crazy awesome times have been afoot. Esti drove like a demon outta tombstone and we made it to San Diego in 8 hours. She barely gave Diana time to get out and pee! With the help of Pacific time we made it in by 4 and had time to check out the Comic-con. OMG we were like kids in a candy shop!! Klingons, Ugly Dolls, chickens all mingling together in one place. We made it just in time to catch the Adult Swim forum. The creators of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Tom goes to the Mayor, and Robot Chicken (Yeah Seth Green!) were answering questions. At the end of the session the Aqua teen guys had a trivia session where they were handing out toys for right answers. Diana had earlier strategically placed herself towards the front to ask a question so she was in prime position to answer some trivia. By jumping up and down and waving her arms all over the place she caught the attention of Seth Green who pointed and said "hey! call on that chick!". Diana then screamed out an answer at the top of her lungs and was rewarded with aqua teen hunger force action figures!!! weeee!!


That night we met up with Di's friend Rob who had a slammin' pimped out pad in the city. Rob's friend Tom joined up and we went out to paint the town red. After a night of partying we made our way back to the Comic-con and proceeded to paint that red! Esti met her idols Darren Arnofsky & James Jean and Di got to meet the guys from Dumbrella, yay! There was also two close encounters with Kevin Smith, a rockin concert by Tenacious D, and we were 2 feet away from Ann Eisner (who just looked like a little old biddy).

By Sunday it was time to move on up the coast and we headed out to Chrissy and Andrew's in LA. There was a brief stint at LegoLand and then we were in the land of fake lips and boobs. The chinese theater was gorgeous and the movie wasn't too bad either.

Since it was like 90º in the valley, Andrew & Chrissy took us on a whirlwind tour of the beaches of LA (you could drive for hours and hit MAYBE a 1/3 of LA!). we went to Venice, and muscle beach..and yep! We ran into Jack Black! Ok, well, he was a few feet away, but it was still him!
We ran like little kiddies towards the water to dip our toesies into the pacific ocean. It would have been fabulous except for the fact that the air temp was a nice 70º! Tomorrow Vegas Baby!

East Coast, Shocker, It's all the same right? I call dibs if you decide not to keep the ATHF toys.

Right near that found porn in Alamagordo, NM, if you turn around to the valley...I saw three Stealth fighters fire missles into a man-made hill in the middle of the test range in White Sands. If I had a high-speed camera, that would have been found porn while standing on found porn.

that white sands photo looks like something out of star wars -- like episode 1 movie poster or something like that.
