Hey everyone, so I’m heading out tonight to LA – where I’m going to see the MTV Movie Awards!!! Erin and I are flying out of Portland tonight around 8:00, and we’ll touch down in LA sometime around 10:00PM. Tomorrow I have to check in at the movie awards around noon – and I’ll be there till the show is over! I’ll be on the red carpet, stalking celeb’s as they make their way into the Gibson Amphitheater. After the red carpet, I’ll be whisked away to some area reserved for bloggers. (I wonder who else I’m going to bump in to!)
I can’t even begin to tell you guys how excited I am! I’ve been working for years now – to be invited to one of these awards shows – and here it is! I can’t wait!
After the show, Erin and I are going to stick around in LA for a couple days…relax, and sight see.
You guys HAVE to remember to watch the awards tomorrow night! They’ll be LIVE SUNDAY, JUNE 1ST AT 8PM!! Also – if you guys want to, check back here tomorrow night. I will be LIVE BLOGGING from the awards! I can tell you what I’m seeing – and hearing – as it goes down!! How cool is that!
Watch for me on the red carpet, I’ll be the one with the stupid-star-struck-crazed-look in my eyes!
UPDATE (7:10PM): Erin and I are sitting at PDX – waiting to board the plane. I’m now realizing how freakishly large my laptop is…I’m trying to balance it on my lap and type at the same time.
We should be out of here in the next hour or so…then we’ll be in LA! We’re flying supasta style, we were able to upgrade to First Class! Free booze – and nicer seats!
I’ll post again once we get to our hotel…who knows when that will be!
PS: A group of us girls went and saw the SATC movie last night at 10:30 PM. It was awesome! Did any of you go see it?
UPDATE (Sunday, 9:3AM): We’re here! I’m sitting in our hotel room in Hollywood, and a little bit achey from the stiff bed. Last night was a nightmare, let me tell you!!!
The flight was amazing… paying $50 to upgrade to First Class is TOTALLY worth the money. We had these huge comfy seats, and I drank screwdrivers until we landed.
Our flight landed at 10:00PM, and we went down to get our baggage. We walked outside to catch our shuttle – a shuttle that promises if they “are late, then you don’t pay!” Of course they were almost a half an hour late, and neither Erin nor I had the balls to ask for the shuttle for free. We finally – finally get to our hotel at 12:30. The shuttle took FOREVER.
We end up at our hotel at 12:30AM, exhausted, and needing to take a shower. We walk in to the Ramada in Hollywood, and find that even though I have reservations – AND A CONFIRMATION – we have no room. The nice Indian man tells us there is not a single room at the hotel. He says “Yes, you’re right – you DO have a confirmation – but I don’t know what’s going on. I’ll talk to the manager in the morning.” So I’m getting pissed, and the super bitch in me is welling up and coming out. I’m freaking out on the guy – demanding a room…and the bottom line was – there was no room for us.
So at 1:00AM – we have to get a taxi, and take us to another hotel – which apparently is only 5 miles away from where we are. 30 minutes and $20 later, we arrive at another Ramada. We finally make it to our room sometime around 2:00AM, and quickly fell asleep.
This morning I wake to find there is a MASSIVE FIRE over at Universal City (which is practically where the MTV Awards are going to be held). That would be just my luck… I called my rep over at MTV, and she said the show is on! PHEW!
Now I need to get up and get going…get ready for my big day!
I’ll post more as the day goes on!
