LA!

After a journey fraught with peril, we arrived in LA this afternoon!!! The drive from Sacramento was truly hideous, with 70mph winds and pouring rain the ENTIRE way (save a 45 foot stretch of blue clouds)! The weather here in "sunny" LA is no better, it is super wet and rainy (maybe to make me feel welcome as a Seattle-ite?).

But we are here, and spending the night at my best-high-school-friend Sara's precious little studio apartment that she so kindly offered for the night! It is located in the heart of Koreatown, or as the white people call it "Mid-Wilshire." We got to visit with Sara over a lovely dinner, it was nice to catch up as I haven't seen her in probably 3 years. And she's my only friend here, so I'm glad that she claims she'll be "bugging me all the time to hang out." :)

I will be moving into the apartment tomorrow, so hopefully I'll be able to steal internet from a neighbor so you can see pictures!

Katie failed to mention that her MOTHER drove most of the way thru the hideous weather, AND handled the LA traffic with ease. Guess all this road-tripping with my Katie Cat is paying off.

Wow! good driving mama. Way to get your binxy cat there safely. I'm glad you have at least one friend to hit the town with KT. Good luck with the move-in today!

I was wondering how the weather in CA was going to be for you. We had to listen to the "Gubenator" talk about the bad weather on the way to work this morning!!

You guys didn't bruise up "Cherry" too bad did you? And yes, every car needs a name!

kt - give kookoo a call @ 206-779-7429 - she is closer to disneyland than you - so maybe you can get together although i know it's far away

she is a bad car owner, she refuses to give her poor rig a name. No damage done to CHERRY (bwa ha ha) on the trip, she was a real trooper. And one good thing about Katie's location, she is a straight shot up Lincoln to LAX, so all us visitors can expect to be picked up.
