Starstruck

This last weekend I went to Los Angeles with one of my roommates, Candace and one of her friends to go to a few TV show tapings and do other various fun activities (shop, spend too much money, shop, etc). Even though I spent much more of my savings than I intended, it was one of the most fun vacations that I have ever been on. We went to a taping of Jay Leno and a taping of Chelsea Lately, which was amazing. Then we went to different comedy clubs in the night time. At the Laugh Factory we saw Dane Cook and Chris D'Elia do stand up and, being honest, I don't think I stopped laughing once. I'm so so grateful that we were able to make the trip work. The sunshine was much needed and I got back to Logan rejuvenated and ready to go another few weeks until spring break :)

I wish we could've gotten pictures at the tapings, but they were surprisingly strict about cell phone use. Example: when we were at Jay Leno, the show vehemently informed us that even if we are spotted with our cell phones in our hands they could potentially kick us out. So we followed the directions and turned our phones off and tucked them away. After the show, though, they were taking a while to usher us out. We got relatively good seats, so we were among the last to leave the studio. So rebellious me thought it would be okay to peek inside my purse and check my texts. The phone never left my purse at all, but that did not stop a heavy-set black woman from yelling at me to put away my phone. Oops.
