So Friday after I got off work I went and picked up Andrew at 7:40am. We went to Earls to eat breakfast and then went up to the WB Studios in Burbank.
First of all, it took us over an HOUR to drive 33 miles! Which is insane! Fucking LA traffic. Either way we had a really good time doing it.
We got there, and it was so HUGE and so much fun. We got to see all these different sets, including the set they are going to be filming RENT on in a few weeks. Sadly since everything is on hiatus, we didn’t get to see any stars. But that did mean we got to go INTO Luke’s diner, Lorelai’s House… Which also happens to be Suki’s (sp?) house. We got to stand in the gazeboo in the park, and see the dance studio and Star’s hollow High school. OMG, it was SO MUCH FUN!
Then, I told the guy how I liked the West Wing. So we got to go there too and go through the West Wing set! I was surprised at how filthy it was. I mean it always looks so clean and shit on screen, but it was a mess! It was so cool though to see the Press room, and all that. I really wanted to see the Oval Office, but it was in an area that he said was too dark to walk down. 🙁
Anyways, we got done with that at like 12:30 or so, and then drove back home. Traffic was just as bad coming home as it was getting there, so it took us another hour.
Dropped Andrew off at Chapman and then I came home and went to bed. Spelt tell 8ish when I went to the UPS place and picked up some packages, since I missed the delivery. I’m so happy now cause I have my QaF season 4, Dick Van Dyke, and MST3K. 🙂 Plus my two new sets of sheets! Woot.
Worked after that, and sadly things failed, so I had to track down a developer. The main one I was supposed to call was gone, and so I tried a few others with his suggestion. Thankfully Eric was around and could help… So then I started my stuff back up again. Only for it to fail again around 1 am. By that time it was too late to do anything about it, so I had to just give up for the night. I did a few other things and then went to bed about 3am.
Now here it is 8am and I’m back up working again. Eric’s online and trying to fix the problem. Yay.
I’m really happy about hanging out with Andrew again. It’s been just like old times, and I forgot how nice it was to have someone to talk to… With JonJon if he and I had gone all the way to Burbank, the whole 2 hours drive would have been him blasting his radio… With Andrew we talked all the way there and all the way back about just random stuff. It was really nice. 🙂
I’m supposed to go up there for the graduation. But I’m not sure if I will or not. We’ll have to see how long I have to stay up working on this work stuff. And if I can get enough sleep. But I am going to go up later and hopefully we can go to see StarWars. YAY!
