We're Leavin' on a Jet Plane

Today we bid farewell to Canada (for now)!

Lowell and I will be spending a day/night in Los Angeles en route to New Zealand. Since LA is a celebrity hot bed, I’ve devised a little plan of action (in order to feed my ridiculous celebrity connection obsession).

When (not if) I spot a celebrity, I will approach him/her and talk to him/her as though I have NO CLUE that he/she is famous. Perhaps I’ll inquire about the cut of his or her pant leg, or offer my opinions regarding the American presidential campaign.

Meanwhile, Lowell will be hiding behind an inconspicuous pole or sale rack with our 18X zoom lens snapping shots of me and the celebrity.

This way I’m not some annoying fan, and let’s face it: we both benefit from the interaction. I get my celebrity photo, and they get the pleasure of my interesting conversation.

Plan B: If Lowell looks like a creepy paparazzo and someone calls the cops on him, maybe he’ll just approach the celebrity and me, make some smooth comment, then snap our picture oh so casually. Oooooooo it’s a surefire plan I think. Can’t WAIT!

Next time you see me here,hopefully it’ll be with a celebrity. He he.

But for now, we must go as we don’t miss our flight. AAAAAHHHHHHHH!

Bon Voyage, Julie!! I hope you have a safe flight!! Your blog is still one of my favourite things to visit when I have a quiet moment -- you are such a great writer and tell such wonderful stories! It inspires me to dig my blog out of the dusty cave it is currently in and perhaps...just perhaps...revisit it. :)

Oh, and I TOTALLY have camera envy...what kind of camera is it that you guys have??? I am in the market for a new one, and yours seems like it is oh-so-stellar beyond, um, stellar!!

Hi Katie! If you get this, please email us! My middle name is renee, and my last name is taylor. My email address is full name- all one word; small letters- at gmail dot com.

We're going to be in LA for 27 hours (unless we get there early enough to catch a sooner flight) and we were hoping to get in touch! We'll be there July 10-11. :)
