Hollywood Dreams

I am still recovering from the sleep deprovation that was last week. I went to my friend J's wedding in downtown Los Angeles and it was a lot of running around. (I cannot even begin to explain how much I love J and how much I loved her wedding so I will not even try.) Coming off of the past three months of being busy busy busy I decided I would take this week to slow it down by catching up on some reading and watching tv. I think I am gonna try going home more after work next week too. Also, I stayed over for a couple nights at my friend S's apartment in West Hollywood. I want to move there. Seriously. I am looking into it. I know it would mean having to buy a car and having to drive that car and having to parallel park - yikes! But, for it to be sunny and warm so often. To be situated just north of LA, just east of Beverly Hills, and smack dab in the middle of Hollywood. Wow. Los Angeles is the only place other than the city where I've ever gone and felt immediately at home. It's the only other place where I can look at its residents and think of how lucky they are to actually live there. Two places I would love to visit again: Porto's Bakery in Glendale has some awesome pastries. I still need to go back and try the guava and cheese that J was raving about. The Griddle Cafe on Sunset Boulevard was listed as the best brunch in Hollywood and it did not disappoint one bit. My other friend J and I loved it. I need to go back here so I can try the red velvet pancakes. We wanted to return but ran out of time. We also went to the Scarlett Tea Room in Pasadena which was also lovely. Next paycheck, I will start saving for a car.
