Bette Davis Eyes: Fallon and Alexis go to L.A., Part I

Next week, I have to travel to Los Angeles to speak at a conference. After my professional duties are over, my good friend Leah will be joining me for a long weekend of sightseeing and star searching. Eschewing traditional travel guides, we will be using the Baby-Sitters Club Super Special #5, California Girls. This book is far superior because it is a personal account of visiting the Los Angeles area in the early 1990s as opposed to a commercially driven, dryly written travel guide.

Can you tell that we were in third grade at the height of the Baby-Sitters Club phenomenon?

Of course, we will not be emulating Claudia's "funky" style or Dawn's "California cool" style while we are there. We are much too sophisticated for that. When
Fallon and Alexis travel to Los Angeles, they travel in style.

Unfortunately, Krystle will be unable to join us as she will be spending the week at the "spa."

We will, of course, provide you gentle readers with a full account of our glamorous trip to Los Angeles, including star sightings and fancy restaurants.

Poor Krystle! Is "going to the spa" a euphemism for having a miscarriage? Or a face lift??????

We also welcome sightseeing suggestions from those of you out there in BlogLand who have been there before!
