Saturday morning, we decided to take on Runyon Canyon. Now, a lot of locals do this hike for exercise. So were we, sort of. The truth: we thought we were going to be able to take up close and personal pictures with the famous Hollywood sign.... we didn't. We weren't even on the same mountain as it (fail). We never found out how you actually get there so I can't give you that info but you should definitely get that clarified if you want to do that. Runyon was still pretty awesome. It's tough but if a miniature hotdog can do it, you can do it (yes, he was our little inspiration all the way up). A lot of dogs actually do this hike and it's amazing how to themselves they are (it's the Cali chill).

Sunday night we went to a Kareoke bar a couple blocks down from the apartment called Gaslite ($5 Kamikazes on Sundays). It was a freakin' sauna and just as we were walking out to get some air we caught the security saying, "the only people who have not complained are these two girls from Miami" (oops). He was a really funny guy. Every one at the place was really friendly. A homeless lady even walked in and sang "Man in the Mirror" by Michael Jackson. She sang it with so much soul, every one was singing along, it was so touching. Another guy sang "Hot In Herre" by Nelly to set the mood (lol). Then, a guy and his girlfriend in line with me for karaoke, had their own animation Youtube Channel (pretty cool but I forgot the name, sorry).
<- The guy to my left is on the upcoming season of Grey's Anatomy. I've never seen Grey's and I felt bad telling him that but it turns out he hadn't seen it before he auditioned either so it was fine.
I had an amazing weekend and I'm so excited to go back. Perfect weather, soulful people, and fun to-do's. Who knows, maybe it's my new "home" in a couple of years (I saw that about many places though).
