Okay. I’m still trying that thing where I post photos from my phone, and then eventually I’ll get to the gorgeous ones from my *real* camera. But my Android photos have been pretty good!

So I’m in LA now, on the second leg of this work trip. And now, let’s talk about hotels.

Stayed at the W in SF and I thought the rooms were really nice, as you could see from the photo  in my last post of my dearest Jackie sitting on our window seat doing some work at whatever hour that was. Loved that seat. Also loved the colorful/crazy design in the elevator:

Oh look, there’s me and Jackie. We’re on our way to a very late dinner.  This elevator made me feel fun and fancy.

Now I’m in LA and it’s a bit of a change of pace. One thing I do like: chandeliers. I’m pretty sure we’ve covered that before. And I like this white chandelier at The Bazaar by Jose Andres in the hotel SLS:

I’m really digging that chandelier with the white tabletop and the light chairs. Really digging. And then the rooms…

A little less my style, but I’ll take it. Oh and also hello, Timmy. One really great thing about this trip to LA is I got to hang out with my really good friend Tim, who recently (or not so recently, I guess) left the East Coast for the West. It’s nice to see him on his new turf and get a little tour from him and hang out and all that good stuff. He waited for me at the hotel today when we were getting ready to go out and I appreciated that a lot.

Other things I appreciate:

Mexican Coke! I’ve been able to get it once or twice in New York but Mexican Coke is all over California (for obvious reasons) and it is the bomb dot com. It’s made with real sugar instead of whatever else it’s made of when it’s not Mexican (high fructose corn syrup, I believe). So it tastes great. I had one earlier today at Umami Burger, where I did a little celeb spotting with Tim. Real photos of that meal are to come.

And now it’s time for one more thing: Guess whose birthday it is! Mine. Since I’m posting this at 2 in the morning, it is most definitely my birthday. And when I wake up I am going to Disneyland to meet Minnie and that is not even a joke. Good night!

Hello, hello. I’m going to try a new thing. Since all the photos I take on my phone automatically upload to a private album accessible on Google+ (Yay, Android!), I’m going to start grabbing them and putting them up here. We’ll see how this goes. I’m also taking photos on my regular camera so those could very well be additional posts for when I get back. I’m in San Francisco on a kind of last-minute work trip. The good thing is I’m here with some really great people, one of which is my work bestie Jackie, who came into town with me a day early so we could do some galavating. We’re already having a blast and we’re already exhausted. Our first meal was at Flour & Water. We got there at 5:30 and had to wait an hour and a half. It was worth it. Above is what was left of our chocolate bundito dessert. Yes.

Here is myself taking a look at things from Coit Tower, in which we had to walk a thousand steps to get to. A thousand steps along different kinds of trees and different kinds of houses of different colors and on different height levels because we were going up a hill. It was really cool. And the view was nice when we were up there. Oh, and yes, I did buy this jacket at Forever 21 because I had no idea San Francisco would be as cold as it would be. My choice of shoes that I brought is really unfortunate.

And here is Jackie. You should probably get ready for her to be on this blog a lot because we basically hang out all the time.
And there she is again! We are at the W which I’ve never stayed at before and it is very exciting. The elevator is fascinating.
That’s all for now. Wait to you see the glorious photo I took of some Mexican food we had today in The Mission. Oh yes we did.
P.S. Okay, that’s really not all. I’m excited to be here but there are reasons for which I’ll be really excited to go back to New York. In 10 days! Will I survive?
