Am back from a fantastic time in Los Angeles. There was much frolicking on the beach (by the munchkin--I didn't so much frolic myself), sipping of fruity drinks and just generally having a blast with friends. And [livejournal.com profile] tlbelle got married! The wedding was beautiful and tons of fun and even those of us who'd vowed not to dance were lured onto the dance floor when they played "Boogie Shoes." Because who among us can resist the call of the Boogie Shoes? No one, that's who.

And even though we spent most of our time at the hotel in Santa Monica, we managed to have a few celebrity sightings. Anthony Anderson was on Mr. Sus' flight from Houston. [livejournal.com profile] mikijean claims to have seen Mandy Moore outside our hotel, although no one else was paying attention so we have no verification. Also, Mark Ruffalo and his kids walked out of the hotel and down to the beach with us. It's possible that some of us stopped to unobtrusively watch as he proceeded to do chin ups and swing on the rings at the Old Muscle Beach.

And now I am back and I have painters in my bathroom, but the tile is all done and the new countertop is supposed to come tomorrow so there's a chance the renovations will be done by next week. Yay!

I've been enjoying the new Office DVDs immensely. The deleted scenes for The Office are always so good it's like getting to watch new episodes. And my Dundie is proudly displayed on my mantel, just where Michael would want it to be.

Best of all, it's September now, which means the new fall season is just around the corner!

Here follows my recap of the Best Trip to L.A. Ever. Featuring famous knitting stores, cake, dead bodies, and Brian Baumgartner (times two!).

[livejournal.com profile] austin360 and I arrived at LAX Thursday afternoon, found [livejournal.com profile] mikijean and checked into our hotel. Then we spent a delightful evening with [livejournal.com profile] tlbelle, [livejournal.com profile] bgirlla, and [livejournal.com profile] ja_is_my_muse, full of catching up, knitting and dinner at Versailles (mmmmCubanfood).

Friday morning we all met up for a late breakfast/lunch at an adorable little place near Beverly Hills. While we were there, Rachel Nichols walked in and we spent a few minutes trying to remember what shows we'd all seen her on. Then, a few minutes later, Brian Baumgartner arrived and sat down at a table near us, which was a weird coincidence because we were going to be seeing him at the Paley Festival later that night. We also spotted Janine Turner walking by with bright red hair, so already we were off to a terrific start at celebrity bingo.

Yarn! )

After that we chilled and knit for a while until it was time to head out for dinner. We decided to eat at the Farmer's Market at The Grove, and on the way to meet up with the others we're pretty sure we walked by Ashlee Simpson and her new nose. And then when we did meet up with the others they said we'd just missed Eric Millegan, which was another totally weird coincidence because some of us were going to be seeing him again later on the Bones set that night. It's like fate! Also, I had some truly fantastic crepes for dinner. Seriously, I haven't had crepes this good since I was in Paris.

The Office! )

Bones! )

Hey all! I'm back from partly-cloudy L.A.! I so wish I'd been able to stay longer. Had an amazing time visiting the girls. Saw Big Pussy at Jerry's Deli. Bought an awesome vinyl jacket at It's a Wrap (yes, I said vinyl--shut up, it's French), as well as cute t-shirts (one says "Bitch" and the other says "I love Jane Austen") and Kenneth Cole shoes. Went to Bride & Prejudice (the girls all LOVED it as much as I do). Was appropriately awestruck by Amoeba and bought gifts for hubby and munchkin plus Bride & Prejudice soundtrack for me. Not to mention the Lost panel Saturday night... So. Much. Pretty! *swoon*

Lost scoop - including one sorta vague spoiler that's already been around for a while )
