Woo-hoo, Euro final here we come! Sorry German friends. ;)
No, I didn't watch the game, I was busy doing a little exploratory expedition around Burbank to make sure I don't get hopelessly lost when I go to see Scott's play on Saturday. It takes a while to get there from Westwood, but it's not too bad. I'm going to take a taxi to come back, though, I don't really feel comfortable wandering around Los Angeles at night on my own. Even if I did come back from West Hollywood with the bus the other night, but it was only 9 PM. And the whole time, I had a friend's voice in the back of my mind saying "Don't go to Hollywood at night!" Oops. XD
In other news, I went to Santa Monica yesterday, dipped my feet in the Pacific Ocean and PLAYED STREET FIGHTER 2 AT THE ARCADE! OMG I'm so old school, I wanna go back and spend all my money on that game. Well, no, not really, but I'll definitely go back for a bit of shopping (or window shopping at least) and play again. Street Fighterrr!
Later as I was getting back from the beach a man asked me "Has it been this clear all day?" I told him "Um, I don't know, I just got here." And he went "Are you from Europe?" Busted. XD Also, there was a girl standing on the pavement holding two snakes with the Star Wars soundtrack blasting from a loudspeaker. And I ate a delicious
chocolate coconut cupcake at Yummy Cupcakes
. Yummy indeed.
And now for something completely different, look what I bought today:
Hey, I needed something to write my travel journal in! Well, no, actually I already had a notebook for that, but I've been lazy and haven't written anything in it yet. But now that I have this cool journal things are gonna change, I've already caught up a bit with what's been happening these first 6 days in LA. Man, has it been 6 days already? I should also update my Italian journal, the one I had in Berlin, so my friends can read what's going on. But I'm lazy and I still fall asleep quite early at night, must be a combination of the time zone and walking around in the sun all day. Excuses, excuses...
