Can I Just Admit Right Here That I'm *Star Struck*? Santa Monica Celebrity Sightings And I Behaved....

Frankly, I'm embarrassed for myself. We arrived in Santa Monica today around 2:00 PM, checked into the hotel, and walked around the corner to have a late light lunch at Ivy-At-The-Beach. During that time, I had a brief affair with the 9 month old baby boy of some rock star who was sitting at the table behind ours with his adorable wife. Hey, I'm just glad I can still hold some strange man's attention during lunch. It was pretty intoxicating, or perhaps that was the effect of the lovely Patron Margaritas. Whatever. It was FUN!

Since we arrived in SM I've seen Jennifer Anniston turning her slick little black car onto Ocean Pacific Drive from Colorado Street, sat at the table next to Huey Lewis during dinner at The Lobster AND had a Helen Mirren sighting during dinner as well. (I must tell you here that if she & I ever met, we'd be immediate friends, I'm sure and that doesn't sound *stalker like* at all, does it?) I can't imagine why I'm having trouble going to sleep!

All this and driving in L.A. traffic has given me insomnia, big time. Did I mention my tummy, it turns out, will never be made of iron? I absorb all of my stress into grinding my teeth and making my stomach churn, which is not a desirable way to go through life. (Must try to change this sometime soon...)

Apparently, I just can't handle the fast lane of life any more and of course, I'm the only one still awake. Go figure. Uh-Huh.

My daughter said Huey Lewis was so *checking me out* during dinner, right? As if.... Honestly, we were close enough to have held hands. I'm fairly certain he was staring at the big red mark on my neck though, wondering WTH? Vampire bite or what? Yes, unfortunately he was on THAT side of me. Actually, I have to tell you that he is gorgeous even though he's beginning to show some age. How is it that men can age so well? He really is a very attractive man. Maybe I'm a *groupie* at heart... Nah! I'm just sayin'....

I'll see if any of my pictures turned out when I get home, Sadly, I can't do pictures on this laptop. What am I saying? I can barely type on this damned thing in the dark, much less do anything even slightly complicated. I have to be vewwy, vewwy quiet because Mr. Snoots needs his beauty sleep so he can keep up with us tomorrow. You know. While SD and I ride bikes on the boardwalk and he finds a bar where he can watch us. What. A. Man.

And NO! You can't have him.... He's all mine.

Sounds like a blast! Each time I've seen someone of importance, and believe me none of them are of this caliber, I always think they are looking at me to see if I'm looking at them with admiration. However, I'm sure Huey was checkin' you out. But those lesser known ones are probably just looking for an ego boost. Have fun, and take lots of pictures. Can't wait to see them. And BTW Hubby's biopsy came back with good news.

What a wonderful trip!! Have fun riding those bikes. Although I would lay off the Patron while riding:)

Was JA as beautiful in person?

Daryl said...

Mental P Mama said...

Wow! have fun! i love it there!

Allison said...

Ooh, dreamy Huey...of COURSE he was checking you out! What planet have I been on...had no idea SM was such a celebrity fest! And I know what you mean about Helen Mirren, she definitely looks like good friend material. And I've always said I wanted Emma Thompson to be my friend, I just know we would get along like a house afire!

Keep having fun baby!

Sounds like you are having a blast! Pearl Jam is in Universal City for a couple shows, maybe you will see one of them!! :)

When we went to LA we didn't see anyone! But then again, we weren't really looking.

I was too busy clenching my teeth as our host, a friend from the UK who is not accustomed to driving on the wrong (right) side of the road, navigated the joys of LA freeways.

Here's my post on Santa Monica. Warning - it includes the words "blue" and "used" and "condom".

So cool! I sat next to Huey Lewis at a bar in Spain and had a 2 hour convo with him. No one else was there!

Flea said...

You crack me up. I look forward to hearing more about your adventures. :)

Oh, I'll be sending you a packet of Christmas cards sometime soon. Waiting on them to return from the printer. :)

Huey Lewis was checking you out?? He must have bionic eyes as he's in Scotland playing golf.....

Snooty Primadona said...

Oh phooey! It must have been a damn good look alike then.

And hey - anonymous jerk (troll)... thanks for raining on my parade. You have a great day too, okay? Maybe I need to get my glasses checked again, which might help me. However, you will always be an a$$hat who likes to burst other people's bubbles. Meanie...

There are such things as jets.

I think you did see Huey. And he was checking you out. And right after that, he went to the green country to play a round of golf.

So there.

How fun. And what awesome celeb sightings. Mr. Snoots will probably never quite catch up, but it's nice of you to let him tag along. There's an awesome variety of golf out there if you get a chance...you probably won't though too much else to do, Have fun!!!!

Heather said...

Hey I've been to LA several times and have never had as many sightings as you. It must be your aura!

Can't wait to hear more upon you return.
