"you're going to hollywood"

I took this picture at disneyland a few years ago...and was looking for any excuse to use it again.

I'm sure for people that live in or on the outskirts of the LA bubble, like my brother, the novelty of it wears off after a day or so. I understand that...I mean Hollywood Blvd is gross and full of crazies and sex shops. Its not the sparkling ball of magic that you believe it to be as a little girl watching BH 90210. I am living under no delusion.

However, today I got excited... like I mean on-the-verge-of-projectile-peeing excited because I realized we will be right outside of LA when the Academy Awards are going on [Tangent: If you haven't already figured out, I love movies and all aspects of pop culture and freaked out on the prospect of being anywhere in the vicinity of something of this magnitude.] This opportunity gives me a little extra help in snatching the title of best celeb siting by a family member. The title currently belongs to my brother, Mikey, who was in line behind John Stamos at Starbucks...so far that interaction is winning the informal, and as yet announced, family celeb-off. Me sharing an elevator 6 years ago with Aaron Neville just does not even qualify.  [Tangent: Sorry Mr. Neville. In my book- you will forever reign supreme.]

I still think I win.
Anyway- one week from today, I will be hopped on a plane to LAX with a dream and my cardigan...en route to LA, with some much needed vacation/family time/Armenian wedding festivities. But quick poll: How many more references the Miley Cyrus classic "Party in the USA" will I make during my time in Southern California? [Tangent: Back-to-back Cyrus blog references? What is happening to me? I am becoming such a tool in my old age.]
