Sonny With A....You Should Have Gotten Here Earlier
Finally, a new post. I feel like I haven't had anything of worth to talk about. My mind has just been kinda blank. And while this isn't exactly a topic of worth, it's still fairly entertaining :)
My best girl friend is a pretty big Disney girl. She loves the TV shows, is obsessed with the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus.. and I never stop teasing her about it. Well, on Wednesday she called me and told me she got tickets to maybe get into the first live taping of Sonny With a Chance. She asked if I wanted to go... said yes.. and that is where my Friday plans developed.
The taping is in Hollywood. We.. we don't live there. We live somewhere. Not there. Not very far away, but not there. I get off work on Friday at about 1. She wants to leave at 1:30, so I quickly straighten my hair and get dressed, wash off the stench of cafeteria food. I'm ready by about 1:45, and as it usually goes, we left an hour late. No big deal. Oh, except there is horrible traffic once we get around the area. We were supposed to be at the taping at least an hour early, got there 45 minutes early. After an hour wait, everyone was turned away. And given these "VIP" passes to go see another show, guaranteeing a spot. Whatever.
We're not going to have spent all that time in traffic just to leave. We both pretty much knew we wouldn't get in, so Bianca had the back up plan of going to Universal Citywalk. She called her brother to get directions from where we were, and being girls.. what should have taken us 10 minutes ended up taking us an hour. I wasn't driving though, so I blame it all on her.
We got there, and both of us are much to cheap to pay the $10 for parking. So, we park in the metro parking lot and hike up the ridiculously steep hill. We were out of breath about 1/4 of the way up. All the way up? I'll leave that to your imagination.
We basically did nothing from here. We walked, went to Subway. I spent $8 on a freakin' sandwich and small drink. We walked some more. Went into random stores, did random things. Walked some more, then a bit more. Then a little bit more.
Then we tried to find a way to get down the hill without walking down. Unsuccessful. We walked down, myself with pepper spray in hand. There are some weirdos in Hollywood, mmk?
Alas, neither of us were attacked. I didn't have to try to use the pepper spray, because who knows how that would have turned out. A trip to Hollywood and no one died. It was quite the adventure.
