My last day of the big Go Card stuff!

And goodness, did I do a lot! I started with the Sony Tour. Then I made my way to the Dolby Theatre.

This was pretty cool. And as much as I want to figure out what the Oscars are about by going to the Oscars myself, it was still fun to get a whole behind-the-scenes tour – complete with seeing the host’s dressing room (which might not be something I’d see, even if/(when ;)) I’m a nominee someday)…

There were tons of photos everywhere. And it was funny to hear about everyone hanging out at the bar instead of inside – because that’s exactly what happened at the Creative Arts Emmys.

I also then did a trek around Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. I wouldn’t have gone to this, had it not been for the Go Card… But since it was basically free and almost next door, I checked it out.

This is one of the few places where I really wouldn’t recommend going alone.

Generally, I don’t believe in waiting for people to do fun stuff. I’m all about living in the now, even if that means you have to go by yourself to places (which I think can be fun, and can help you to meet new people sometimes). But at this place specifically, the whole point is to take photos. And if you have someone with you, that could be really helpful.

Aurora pretending with fake Jack NicholsonI also went on this Red Line Behind-The-Scenes tour where we walked around the old Grauman’s Egyptian Theater, and around all the hand prints and everything outside of Grauman’s Chinese (which I think is called TCL now). I got to put my hand in Michael Jackson’s hand-print, which was super toursity (but kind of the point).

The last thing I did (before seeing a friend one last time before I headed out) was to take a little Hollywood Movie Star Home tour. I would’ve normally never gone on one of these.

It was a little silly, but I did like generally getting a better-ish kind of layout of LA… I still don’t totally know where everything is in relation to everything else (no matter how long I lived there), but that bus tour kinda helped. They also stopped for a pretty view of the Hollywood sign, which was nice.

But I’m not generally interested in celebrity homes… was just kinda in Hollywood with a Go Card.

Then I got a massage, went to dinner with a friend, and headed to the airport!

I'd love to hear from you! So whaddya say?
