Some Vacay Photos

My trip to Cali was very nice. I can't believe it's over already. Every day was jam packed with fun, except for the last few when I ran out of money and had to crash with some elderly relatives who wouldn't turn on the air conditioning even though they live in Moreno Valley and it was 100 degrees.

They were like, "Doesn't the fan keep this room so nice and cool, Pru?"

Um....that would be a big no. But what are you going to do? Beggars can't be choosers, etc. It was really nice of them to put me up.

In their sweltering, sweltering guest room.

God, I'm an ungrateful brat! I shouldn't complain. I spent most of my time enjoying the lovely cool breezes of San Diego and San Luis Obispo. I also stopped by Huntington Beach so I could hang out with fellow bloggers LA and Diane. It as so great to finally meet them and find out that they were even more awesome and fun in 3D. We chattered nonstop for hours and hours, and then Diane gave us a tour of her gorgeous beach pad and I got to meet her dogs, the famous Nanners and Noodles.

Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures with them. I meant to, but I was so busy having fun that I forgot. Also, I didn't remember to charge my digital camera battery before I left and it ran out of juice pretty quick. What pics I do have were taken with my crappy cell phone.

Here is the most famous statue in San Diego. I forget what it is called, but it's famous! Really it is!

I like this one better because of the Eurotrashy couple in front of it. I could tell they were European because they were exquisitely accessorized. The fact that they were gibbering in Italian might have helped too. A few minutes later, they asked me to take a pic of them with their bazillion dollar camera. I was tempted to run off with it. Why wasn't I born in Europe? Free medical care and their money is worth so many dollars they could wipe their ass with greenbacks and still have plenty left over. I am so jealous.

In San Luis Obispo I stayed at the world famous Madonna Inn. I loved the way it was decorated in an over the top opulence. And BTW it is not owned and operated by Madonna as my mom asked when I told her about it.

Here is the bathroom in the attached restaurant of the hotel. It looked like something out of Dracula's castle.

Trying to work the friggin camera phone! Yes, my hair looked this fried the entire time.

Posing in front of the restroom stall because I'm all about class, baby!

You may think I'm obsessed with bathrooms (and you'd be right) but this toilet in my room was special. It had a heated seat! I am but a poor lass from the IE unused to such decadence and I must say it felt like heaven on my buns!

It also featured a bidet with rear and frontal cleansing. What happens is a jet of warm water shoots out and bathes the nether regions. Very thorough! I think I may have had an orgasm from it.

Pretty scenery from a beach. This one was in San Diego, I believe. I have a bunch of these but they all kinda look the same.

One of my favorite tourist spots in San Luis Obispo. It's called Bubble Gum Alley. Basically it's just two walls filled with people's used gum and formed into designs and whatnot. Just the kind of thing I love.

Here is my contribution. It was watermelon flavored.

The best thing about bubble gum alley is you can try all sorts of different flavors by picking at the wall. How awesome is that! Looks like you had a great time!

fashion herald said...

heated toilet seats? bidet w/front and back options? I want to live there.

xl said...

What feature is activated with the bidet "Oscillating" button?

Diane said...

The restrooms at the Madonna Inn are the best part! Did you go in the men's room too? Do they still have a lion in a cage in the parking lot? (Ok that was like 25 years ago).

It was great to meet you, too - I really enjoyed myself, as did Nanners and Noodles.

Blowing Shit Up With Gas said...

That Euro-trashy camera probably took weird Euro batteries, anyway.

You really DO seem to have a thing for bathrooms, btw.

Prunella Jones said...

Ron- hmmm that idea never occured to me while visiting. I bet all the flavor was chewed out anyway.

It was a fun way to waste five minutes though.

Fashion- me too! I'd marry it.

XL- oscillating meant you could make the water shoot out in a gentle sprinkle or a hard pounding stream. I liked the later.

Diane- a lion in a cage? Those must have been the days1 I would've enjoyed seeing that.

I wanted to kidnap Noodles. She was such a dainty little thing.

Blowing Shit Up- you are right, sir!

I wonder what Freud would say about it?

Mister Underhill said...

Would it be totally gross of me to go to bubblegum alley and lick the piece of gum you put on the wall? Just asking.

I had no idea you were heading to the HB, if I'd known I would have met you guys there since my dad lives there and it's where I grew up (aside from that mental institution). It's a small world, I guess.

The euros may have free health care, but it's almost impossible to get adderal in most of the EU, so fuck that commie bullshit.

Mister Underhill said...

Oh, and I like the idea of an inn owned by madonna that has sean penn come out of the closet and punch you out if you try to take pictures.

Mister Underhill said...

PS you a hotty.

LA said...

That was a great afternoon/evening, Pru! I'm not very photogenic, but I would have gladly snapped some pix of you and Diane.

Mr. UH, you were with us in spirit.

The Madonna Inn rules, although I haven't been there since I was around 14.

OneHungMan said...

Pictures, but no boob pics???

MJ said...

Hippy handbag alert!

CarmenSinCity said...

awesome pics! I love the bidet thing and damn, San Diego is beautiful! I can't wait to head over there.

Helen said...

aaauuuugghhh, (I don't know how to spell that sound that one makes when they're expelling a jealous not quite whiny, but not moany sound) I want to meet you! Looks like fun!!!

Savvy Mode SG said...

do you have the toto toilet. it's the best isn't it. heated seat and auto flushes.

honkeie2 said...

Doesnt San Diego mean 'Whale Penis'?
Love all the pics and I am soooo going out to get me a shit catcher with a heated seat!

Prunella Jones said...

Mister U- a Madonna Inn owned by Madonna herself would probably have several cameras in every room taking pictures constantly so the guest could vogue to their heart's content.

I didn't tell you because I was worried you'd show up and kidnap me. Can you blame me? It's not like you haven't talked about doing that before.

LA- next time we'll be sure to get out the cameras.

OHM- sorry.

MJ- it's cheaper to dress like a hippie. And besides I kinda am one.

Carmen- you should go. I really liked it. Except for the parking, of course. It seems like I have spent half my life circling around looking for somewhere to park.

Helen- where do you live? I like to travel and I'm a very undemadanding guest. I'll just need my own room with fresh silk sheets, bottled water (Evian only!)to wash my hair with, and a champagne brunch every morning precisely at 11. When would you like me to come?

Savvy- I think they run about $600 or so, which means I won't be getting one any time soon, dammit!

Honk- whale penis? I thought San Diego meant "A House Cost You 2 Million."

Mister Underhill said...

You mean I've been saying that out loud all this time? That's embarassing.

WendyB said...

Can I join you on your next vacation? I like the look of this one.

Mister U- no, I've just been reading your thoughts. They are filthy btw.

Wendy- sure, let's go to Paris so we can drink wine, eat pastries and stalk Johnny Depp.
