ANYhoo, it was indeed SUPER cool. Very interesting to see such a wide range of skaters; you learn pretty quick what the difference is between a good skater and a great skater! One of the big differences is... the severity of the falls. The lower-ranked ladies REALLY ate the ice when they fell. One gal, Candice Didier of France, fell, slid clear across the ice and hit the boards FULL-ON. That was scary. The crowd went wild when she returned to the ice, just a few minutes after being helped off, in order to finish her program!
Yu-Na Kim of Korea took the gold medal quite handily, leaving everyone else in her ice-dust.
This place is a landmark. They pride themselves on never being closed and never being without a customer inside.
It's currently owned by former L.A. mayor and notable Irishman Richard Riordan

It's been lovely getting to know you and your papa this past year.
But now, I must go to your Daddy's blog and look at all your pretty pictures! And after that I'm gonna pop in over at your mama's Foundation and donate $24 in your honor. xoxoxoxoxo!

We had a big party for her, as you can see. She was thrilled. ::eye-roll:: I think she particularly appreciated the tiara.

Thank you, mysterious stranger! Our family will think of your kindness everytime we enjoy the fine programming offered by Cartoon Network. Or, whenever Schnitzel sez, "RADDA RADDA RADDA"!

As you can see from these photographs, Canelé is a lovely eatery in a beautiful section of the city. However, out front was this weird hobo in a plaid shirt from JCPenney (I know this because he showed me the tag inside while describing his 'vintage' hobo shirt in detail -- a common hallmark of the insane). He insisted on horning in on my photo session with Lauren.
After this I think he got Lauren to go to a concert with him, despite my protestations. (He was kinda cute for a hobo.)
Eat at Canelé if you can. Despite this zany blog post, in all seriousness -- THEIR. FOOD. IS. THE. BOMB.

For lunch, we chose House of Pies -- one of those cool old coffee shops that you always mean to visit, but never quite get around to...
It was a lovely day!

It's from Contadino, and is available at Trader Joe's for the *absurd* price of $4.99! It's relatively lo-alcohol, so it's easier on your wine-gut and doesn't get you quite so hammered. (Just sayin'.)
To make it even more awesome, my friend Teal made it. She's so multi-talented. I ::heart:: her.
I hope all you yoginis out there will check out her yoga downloads. They are lovely... And I'm not even into yoga!
Thank you, Tealio! You are ::awesomesauce::.
