Thursday Thirteen

Last week, I wrote about 13 things I wanted to do on my visit to California. I haven't been here since I was a junior in high school 28 years ago. Here's an update on the progress I'm making on my list.

1. Take a picture of the Hollywood sign.
2. See the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
I'm going on a tour today and should be able to do both 1 and 2.
3. Go on a whale/dolphin watching tour.
Did this Sunday. We saw dolphins, but no whales, darn it!
4. Lay by the pool and soak up some California sun.
I've gotten some sun, but not from laying by the pool. The pool in our hotel is indoors. I still love it, particularly the hot tub.
5. Go to Disneyland and see my favorite characters.
6. Ride the California Screamin’ roller coaster.
7. See World of Color at California Adventures.
Sunday we did 5, 6, and 7. We actually rode California Screamin' twice, among many other rides, and I got pictures of me with Mickey, Pooh, Tigger, and Eyeore. I'm just a big kid! World of Color was awesome!
8. Attend a TV show taping. (I hear this is an all-day event with only the possibility of getting in, and that many shows are on hiatus for the summer, so this is very unlikely.)
This one isn't going to happen.
9. Go to the beach.
Check. We're going again on Friday, too.
10. Window shop on Rodeo Drive.
This will be part of my tour tomorrow.
11. Get a photo of Mickey’s All-Star Astros Baseball Statue.
The Astros Mickey was already relocated for auction, but I did get take a photo of the main All Star Mickey when we were at Disneyland.
12. See at least one famous person that I don’t dislike.
Got my fingers crossed for tomorrow!
13. Buy souvenirs for the kids.
This has been taken care of, over and over. I have spent two days shopping at South Coast Plaza and the District, and I will be shopping some more tomorrow.

Blogger won't let me upload any photos right now! Grrr! Well, I will try again later.
