Yeah so I toured UCLA and it rocked!! I felt like a real university community. As I wandered around the student gave me a UCLA blue book, which I have sinced saved, like I was one of them! They even have a sushi bar/ post office in there!

This was when I saw the Marilyn Monroe star. I was just walking trying to find the Chinese theatre because i heard that's where the "walk of fame" was. But I suppose it's quite scattered through Hollywood. But yeah. I <3 Marilyn movies!!

^Silliest pose ever to prove that == *I* == was at the MM star in HW! But ya know, I think back and I wondered why I didn't get a star of Angela Bassett or somebody cooler and deep. But then I think, well she had issues and she was curvy, unlike that stick Audrey Hepburn.

Somthing I didn't want to put on here was.... JayLenoGate. or The Jay Leno Incident. Oh the drama: Let me begin. I planned to see Jay Leno live in L.A. because even tho I like Letterman better, I think Jay's funny too! So I signed up for a few tickets and the response said to arrive in the afternoon to see the show. I had been excited for weeks! I even found his star: (see below)  photo Image0081_zpsafd1a671.jpg

I thought I had the best luck ever to ALSO find his star the day be fore I was going to the show. So anyways, I decided to get there about an hour early, just to be safe. I, arrived: To a whole line of people!! :( (tears*) In fact here's their portapotty bathroom. (pretty clean inside :) ) photo Image0084_zpscc4bb889.jpg It looks empty because I waitted for ppl to leave b4 snapping a pic. But it was a lot of people. At least more than I thought for a middle week show. :(

^I got everyone all excited to look for me on TV again and rounded up pals to come with me.

Well as I said before I got there to a crowded line.I saw this huge Indian family. Ahh, minorities (not really) so I said "Hi" and they said they got there early in the morning. (I was like no, i resevred in advance and it said to be there around 3pm!!!??) It was like this big blur.... Next quest from me was, where are you from? They said Houston. (Inside I thought OH NO!) I don't know why I thought that but they had to be from Houston, all 16 people. But So long story short, I didn't get in but they did cuz one of their folks held space for them in the morning. I did get a little paper that said I could comeback tommorrow and skip the line. I told all these stranger I couldn't make it then and I just did other stuff.


Now you may see that "Jay Leno" doesn't exist anymore. There IS no Tonight Show with Jay Leno starrring abcdefg. Oh, no. *wink-wink* (Guess who took care of that! *wink) I mean really. how was I suppose to know to be there at 10am vs. 3, and then they had the nerve to not let me into to their free show!!


I have nothing to do with no more Jay Leno, I got over it becuase I assumed he'd still have a show now but he doesn't. But I have the bathroom pic and letter from NBCstudios in which they claimed I could see him for MEMORIES.
