A Vietnamese Thanksgiving

I had the great privilege of spending thanksgiving with the Doan family in Laguna Hills. Their daughter Chau took me on a tour of Newport & Huntington beaches as well as Dana Point. The other white guy in the pictures is Chau's boyfriend Nick.

Post a personals ad and this is what you get...

So I got myself an account on Yahoo! personals with the intent of laughing at any poor sucker that attempts to communicate with me. This week I received this winner in my mailbox.

"Hallo, Natalia...
I love very much to see your photos on my internet. You are the woman whom I am so interested in because I see your long blonde hair, white, and I hope smart,kind heart, family-minded too.
Ohya, I live in Jakarta-Indonesia, postgradute, and now I am so seriously looking for a pretty woman to share my life as a friend or more. I dont know you respond my interest or not. But, if possible, please send me your nice message by email, chat, or mail as well.
Natalie, have you heard about my country, Indonesia ? whenever you intend to visit my country, please contact me before."
Thanks a lot and love to see you again.
Best regards,
Didik S

I'm guessing he probably looks something close to this picture in real life
So many things wrong with this message! But lets start with the positive- he loves seeing images of me very much- that's definitely an ego booster. Yes, I do happen to be white and have long blonde hair. Thanks for noticing. Also note how he says "hope to see you again"- as if. Especially since he's never seen me. Also, Natalia? That's not even my name. If you ever want to have a shot you better get my name right. Did I also mention this dude is 38 and still lives with his parents?

Sorry Didik, I'm never coming over to Indonesia and I will not be sending you nice messages or sharing my life with you.

Vintage Hottie of The Week

Linda Harrison- an American actress/model best known for planet of the apes, coccoon, and nova

*I think she bears a bit of a semblance to Emmy Rossum of Phantom of The Opera

Shopping in Hollywood

So I was shopping for the second time at my new favorite store Varga in Hollywood and found a few things I definitely want to save up for!
Some stuff I really like at Guess (Where I Work!)

Want These

So fun. who wouldn't want to wear these?

Contrary to popular belief this pale skin can tan

So I've been taking advantage of my apartments FREE tanning service. and here is my new improved (slightly) more tan self. I know- still a ways to go.

The LA Lifestyle

I don' think I could put these in order but here they are: some of the most awesome things that I'm thankful for since my move from frumpy ol' Ohio to Los Angeles,CA!

1. Meeting Milo Ventimiglia of Gilmore Girls/Heroes/Rocky 5 fame

2. Getting a Job at Guess at Hollywood & Highland

3. Visiting the Heroes set which I can walk to

4. Moving into a super cool apartment

5. Glimpsing the Twilight Premiere in Westwood & Seeing the cast

6. Joining a nifty church called Mosaic that meets at a nightclub and making good friends there

7. Going to school at a beautiful campus with great teachers

8. Being a member at one of the largest libraries in the world and enjoying the amazing selection they have to offer

9. Random celeb spotting/ tv & movie filming in my neighborhood

10. Buying things on the cheap at Santee Alley. shhh don't tell

11. Late night girl dates with Melanie on Santa Monica Pier

12. Driving up the beautiful Mullholland Drive

13. Living in the city at long last

So I thought I'd write a blog...

This way everyone who crosses my path can share in the pleasures and heartbreaks of my adventures in Los Angeles
