Hey Hollywood...

Monday was my first full day in L.A. and I think I squealed twice. Once, when I saw the Hollywood sign the first time out of my room window, and two, when I saw my first Pinkberry.

I woke up at 4:30 am, worked out, ate breakfast, worked on my laptop a bit and then had to go kick off the tradeshow we're out here for. Mid afternoon, walked around downtown a bit and had a Hollywood encounter: walked right through a shooting of 24! It was pretty exciting, but it didn't get a squeal because I don't watch that show. On the other hand, my mom squealed pretty high when I told her about it.

After a couple of more hours on the laptop, I met up with a sweet friend of mine from high school that lives here and he showed us around. We drove down Sunset, saw the official Beverly Hills sign, parked on Hollywood and walked around on the stars. We stood in front of the Chinese theatre, and saw a real red carpet. Unfortunately, it was being rolled away because we had just missed the world premier of Robin Williams' and John Travolta's new Disney movie. The security guys actually said they were still in the theatre watching the movie!

Then we had dinner at a local spot (the most wonderful buttersquash ravioli EVER!!!!) and we headed back to the hotel. I was out as soon as my head hit the pillow.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post - had a real celebrity encounter today!!!!

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from.


moo.com has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards. Cathe at Just Something I Madeposted some great examples of blog cards she's used in the past to promote her blog -

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
