Okay, so I'm watching the Oscars right now... in a hotel room that's roughly 500 yards from the actual ceremony. And yes, that's as close as I am getting tonight!
Earlier today we
Our hotel is incredibly, ridiculously close to the ceremony! We've been watching them move giant potted plants, food, equipment, etc. into the theater for two days.
We haven't had a lot of luck seeing celebs yet, but each day is a new day here in Hollywood! We're just having a wonderful time. Yesterday we had lunch with the lovely Melissa, then we went shopping. Note to self: don't have two glasses of wine before shopping because suddenly dropping $130 in the Lucky store on two cotton shirts seems like a totally normal thing to do.
Last night we did it UP! We went to that burlesque show at a nightclub and got waaaay silly. I swear we laughed for 6 hours straight! Everyone we talked to-even the cab driver on the way there-was such a character! We took three turns in the photo booth and got some hilariously silly pics, and by the end of the night Maeghan and I were carrying Mala around like the two guys from Weekend at Bernie's. At one point Maeghan went to the bathroom and I found myself controlling Mala's limbs in time to the song "Stayin' Alive." Good times!

This morning, however... not such good times. Oy. It took us half the day to feel like doing anything other than groan, but once we got out into the beautiful, cool, sunny California weather, we felt better. Seriously, it's so pretty here, and even though it is cooler than usual, I am loving the weather. We had some yummy Thai for lunch and scoped out the hullabaloo on Hollywood Boulevard, and now here we sit... watching the Oscars on TV and writing to you. My buds.
Speaking of that, you didn't think I'd go to a Hollywood burlesque show and not bring you something back, did you? Sorry it's shaky, but after that many Absolut Mandarin & Sprites, you're lucky it recorded at all.
Hey, FYI -- I've got a new article coming out on Oddee tomorrow (Monday)! Check it out if you get a chance.
Hope you're all having a FABULOUS, wonderful evening!
