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.
