So I just drove about 700 miles in less than 2 days, because I'm crazy like that.
I went down to LA to meet up with pixiesio
and another of her friends to go to the Hollywood premiere of Ingenious
(previously titled 'Lightbulb'). Yes it was filmed years ago and is already on DVD in Canada, but the producers just got a US distribution deal, apparently. No Jeremy wasn't there (he's a big movie star now, you know!) but some of the other actors were as well as other people involved in the film. Just going by the synopsis of the movie, it's probably nothing I would ever have thought to watch, but it was really very enjoyable and funny... a bit raunchy at times, mostly thanks to Jeremy's character, but I would watch it again :)
So that was Friday night, and since I came down via the speedy-but-boring-as-hell-Interstate-5, I went back up north on 101, which is longer and busier but more picturesque; it includes parts of the good ol' PCH - Pacific Coast Highway - and there's just something neat about driving right alongside the ocean like that.
I got in around 6:30 last night, stopped at Safeway for a sandwich and some booze (hey it had been a long day), came home, ate, passed out until midnight, woke up, took out my contacts, and slept til 8:30ish this morning. I have been alternately surrounded by/covered with cats as I procrastinate (1) cleaning up, (2) unpacking and (3) NaNo, which I was actually on pace with until yesterday, so I have some work ahead of me.
So, so thankful that tomorrow is a holiday, that's all I can say.
