good morning from the sunset strip


it. is. so. delicious. to. be. HERE!


we watched dawn come up over los angeles with a great deal of awe and much silence. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

a perfectly peaceful night’s sleep. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

a quick glance at the chandelier to say good morning.


as you know.

we are suitably attired for the sunset strip. viewer-1

and writing-writing-writing in the new moleskine (#146, if you’re curious). viewerand – for the first time since the dreaded plague hit us – we SWAM!

yes, it was barely after 0730 hours in the morning.

yes, it’s not that warm (but, hey, it *is* January).

and yes, everyone stared at us as we merrily made our way with a slow yet elegant breast stroke up and down the Pool overlooking the twinkly morning-ness of los angeles below.

and – we shyly admit – we were still coughing a bit – but oh! OH! it was bliss.

but now real life (who are we kidding? we wouldn’t know RL if it presented itself on a silver salver with a hand-written note that said “real-life”) intrudes.

so – how to get a driver’s license when the first appointment is not until Jan 24th – we need to get a car lease – but we probably can’t get a car lease without a California driver’s license and we probably can’t get a driver’s license in exchange for our NEW York license because that one expires on feb 8th (the last date of the last Visa) but we DO have an employment card which does not expire until August 2013 – and yes, we wait for the green card – but it has not yet been awarded/arrived – and we’re Pretty Sure you don’t get a lease for a car when you only Officially have seven months left legally in the USA.


not exactly a major issue – and, we agree, a Quality Problem.

but unless we want to catch the bus or the metro (which we have done – the former – but not yet the latter) – we need a car.


we do like the one we have in the parking lot right now – it’s a rental – um – something silver and chrysler and convertible and lovely-to-drive

but we can’t keep the rental (far too spenny as one used to say in england).

not sure what to do.

but we’ve noticed that by putting it Here, some magic seems to happen.

darlings – you are delicious for reading this – we’re going to get ready now and take a little walk down the sunset strip before checking out and (gasp!) heading to our new apartment.

which we could probably spot from this window looking out from the Mondrian but we have the Haziest idea of geography.

it’s all terribly exciting.

yes, there Could have been more planning.

but we’ve noticed that sometimes it’s best to just jump in and stuff sorts itself out.

and if not, one goes to the movies.
