On Thursday afternoon I picked up Lindsay from the Burbank airport. We went to Maria & Clayton’s and Megan and Elaine came over and we had a fantastic BBQ! After that we hung out and talked for hours. The next day, I took Lindsay to brunch at the Artisan Cheese Gallery, then to Griffith Observatory and down to the Venice canals, where we ran into Ashton Kutcher’s movie shoot. After that, Maria made a Korean food feast and Megan brought over two kinds of cheesecake.

Saturday Maria, Megan, Lindsay and I met up for breakfast at Megan’s. Then we met Elaine on the lot for a private tour of Warner Bros. We got to look around the museum and get our photos taken with the sorting hat, and then Elaine showed us around the backlot. Clayton, Maria and I took Lindsay to Santa Monica to show here the pier and we got Xooro and watched the beach bunnies and the high waves and the billows of smoke from the wildfires. On the way back to Burbank we took a detour and had budae chigae in Koreatown. Later that night we met up again, plus Meghan and Megan, for a birthday party in Silver Lake. The CoolHaus truck happened to be parked down the street so we got some awesome ice cream sandwiches! Megan and Maria rolled back to Burbank early and ran into an actor at the karaoke bar around the corner from their building.

Sunday Maria, Clayton, Lindsay, Meghan and I went to Zuma beach. The waves were high again – good for body surfing – and Lindsay and I made a sand sculpture of a rose. On the way home we hit the Polo outlet at Camarillo then got stuff to make dinner. I caught up on ‘True Blood’ and we watched the new one and the new ‘Mad Men’.
