If you read this before the end of the day, I am either airborne or waiting for my layover in Minnesota. (Hello, Minneapolis!) Either way, I’m also praying that my pilots are not drunk or using their laptops in the cockpit. I’m heading to LA for the Nutrilite Blogger Event this weekend, where I’ll learn about their products, meet some athletes, and get a free health assessment which will test my flexibility, bone density, and analyze my body fat. (Eep!) Nutrilite is a manufacturer of vitamins and dietary supplements owned by Amway. I shall report back on my trip next week, and I shall try to do so without sounding like an advertorial.
This event is also an excuse to see LA for the first time, and how could I turn down an opportunity to feel fat and ugly next to all the pretty, plastic people out there? I asked Nutrilite to delay my return ticket by two days, and they were happy to oblige. (Thanks, Lindsay!) So if you see a brunette in a rental sedan driving erratically down Mulholland Drive this Sunday, it might be me! I have carefully studied my guidebooks, so I know where Compton is and I will try to avoid it since I’ve heard it mentioned in far too many gangster rap songs. I looked into getting tickets to The Price is Right, because I thought it would make a great blog entry if I appeared on the show and won a hot tub. Upon further research, I discovered that getting in involved waiting around a parking lot for at least six hours, so I nixed that idea. I don’t really want a hot tub anyway, though that would have been an awesome entry, wouldn’t it?
