We were leaving this morning at nine am to fly to LA. I woke up at four because that is what I do if I have a flight. I could have a flight and five in the afternoon, but I am convinced I will miss it if I'm not up before the sun. I also have reaaccuring nightmares about getting to the airport having forgotten my passport at home. In fact I am so on time to airports we once got to JFK the day before our plane was taking off. Swear to god, we all had to pile back in a cab and return to the city.

I’M AMAZED WE GOT HERE

We were leaving this morning at nine am to fly to LA. I woke up at four because that is what I do if I have a flight. I could have a flight and five in the afternoon, but I am convinced I will miss it if I’m not up before the sun. I also have reaaccuring nightmares about getting to the airport having forgotten my passport at home. In fact I am so on time to airports we once got to JFK the day before our plane was taking off. Swear to god, we all had to pile back in a cab and return to the city.

So this morning when I woke up at four and looked out the window and saw this….

I know it’s a horrible picture. And I don’t know what those white splotches are, but I was so focused on the fact if was snowing and our plane would be cancelled and if our plane was cancelled I would not get to LA today and if I didn’t get to LA then I would not be on Good Morning LA on Tuesday, so splotches were the last thing on my mind. The only thing on my mind was going online to see if the plane was on time. It kept saying it was, and I did not believe this as I am still a California girl and where I come from planes don’t fly in the snow.

But Glenn kept saying it was nothing. But he also says it’s sixty five degrees when it’s twenty, so meteorologically he is not to be trusted. But Virgin America swore we were taking off on time so I had to have faith in someone.

We were the only ones on the street. The snow was coming down, but off we went.

The plane did take off sort of on time, it took awhile to de-ice it. But let’s face it you  don’t want them scrimping on the de-ice time.

And then we flew to California for six hours. Nothing much to say about that, I played with my iPad for the entire time. OK, I read the New Yorker article on Paul Haggis and Scientology which practically took six hours. I advice anyone with two hours to kill to read the piece it goes on for bloody ever, you feel like you have been through Scientology and deprogrammed by the time you’re done.

OK, I will admit this is not picturesque, it is the parking lot of Budget Rent A Car, but I have to say when you have not really seen the sun in months and it’s sixty five degrees and not sixty five with snow still on the ground,  it looks damn good: Well, it did to me.

This looked even better.

And this looked better still. One of the main things I miss about living in LA, the Chinese Chicken Salad at ChinChin. We stopped on the way in from the airport and sat outside and ate it. Was great!

Obligatory room shot.

THREE  HOURS LATER

According to my computer clock it is 2:23 in NY, Glenn just said we have been up for 22 hours. Oddly  I don’t feel that tired.
I am however annoyed with myself as we just had the best time at dinner with our friends Edward and Cam Liu. I’m not annoyed at that, we just laughed for three hours non-stop and had the best dinner. But, I was going to take photos of the whole thing, all the courses of which there were many. If my friend Joanne Wilson had been there every course would have been memorialized.

But I was so busy having fun and enjoying the dinner I forgot I had my camera and was a blogger:
Finally at the end I remembered to take a photo of Ed.

Dr.Edward Liu

Now I am actually going  to Doc Talk him tomorrow so you will be hearing more from him. And if you read the book he is all over it.He actually gives me one of my favorite quotes.

Well, Glenn is snoring and since I have to be at on FOX News in about seven hours I should probably stop this now and get some sleep.

The thing is I’m not tired.

There may be more typos than usual as I’m not going to bother checking.
