So, the week-long vacation is over, and I'd be lying if I said that I was happy to be back at work. I really didn't do much last week, and that's just what I wanted: a week of laying around, reading books & blogs, getting my drink on, and just simply recharging my internal batteries...
This past Saturday night, I finally did something that I've wanted to do in a long time....I gave myself an enema...oops....I meant to say that I finally attended Cinespia's weekly summer movie screening, hosted by The Hollywood Forever Cemetery...yup, I saw an old movie in a cemetary with about 1,200 other L.A. folk.
We showed up around 7:30, for the 8:30 screening of Hitchcock's, Notorious. The weather was perfect and we actually got great parking (VIP...cuz the regular lot was already full & the attendants were frustrated with all the cars gridlocked) & we even found a decent spot on the lawn...we brought a picnic lunch (as did everyone else) & a bottle of wine...there's also a local DJ spinning before & after the movie. I really had a fun time and the event had such a nice, friendly L.A. vibe....as cheesy as that sounds, it's true.
The cemetary is really beautiful, and I only wish that we had gotten there when the gates opened (at 7:00 pm), to walk around and look at all of the tombs, crypts, & mausoleums. FYI...this cemetary is the final resting spot for Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, and John Huston.
Next Saturday, they're screening "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane"....you should've Heard the queens in the audience gasp when they announced that.....and no, I didn't gasp!
