Start Spreading the News

In celebration of the World's Funniest Sitcom returning to TV this week (Thursday night! NBC! DOOOOO ITTTTT) I present yours truly at the shrine of 30 Rock in NY:

Apologies for the blurriness. I had two different people take this picture, and both were horribly out of focus. Thanks for nothing, nice strangers.

Requisite Empire State shot:

My last morning there, I ditched the first hour of meetings (true story) to go running through the muggy air of Central Park. The humidity was good enough to eat.

Leaving was quite the ordeal. There was a huge storm, and dozens of flights were canceled. My plane almost didn't make it out, but after a 10-hour delay, I arrived safely in Burbank at 4:30am. I'll bet some of my fellow lounge lizards weren't quite so lucky:

Quick Griffith Park update

This past weekend they opened up the Charlie Turner/Mt. Hollywood Trail, which is (was) the most popular trail in the park. FINALLY. The trail leads up to an overlook, then eventually connects to a winding trail that ends at the base of the Hollywood sign:

Pictured: the famous Griffith Observatory (the "hood ornament" of LA), the famous Los Angeles skyline, the famous Los Angeles smog. Pictured but not visible: the ocean.

Signs of rebirth all over the park...I have hope.
