I’m here in Los Angeles, gazing out my window at the Avenue of the Stars. It’s a bit like returning home, since I attended UCLA and spent about five years roaming the streets of Santa Monica on my bike or riding the bus. I’m a little shocked to be staying at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, as that was always reserved in my mind for the rich and famous. Maybe I’ll get lucky and see Shia LaBeouf.
Speaking of Indiana Jones (wow, that was an awful segue), yesterday at Disneyland, I stumbled across several steampunkish gems which I cannot share with you because I left the cable for my camera at home (drat!). But I found this beastly machine in Tomorrowland, which is still as cool as I remember as a kid.
I’m not sure what it is, but I love it.
And seriously, if you ever get a chance to attend the Jedi Training Academy at Tomorrowland, DO IT!
I’ll return later with an actual posting on all the wonderful writerly lessons I’ll be learning at the conference today!
