yes, I know someone famous

Since tonight is the new 90210 night I thought I'd post about Jessica Straup. She plays Erin Silver on the show and my son took her to Prom! Not only that, Drew was Jessica's first boyfriend back in middle school. Somewhere in my archives I have a picture of her when she was 13 and even then you could see she was going to be a great beauty.

We've been following her career since she took off to Hollywood. We squeed when we saw her on the Target commercial, followed by Dentyne Ice and then she showed up on Grey's Anatomy and in movies like The Hills Have Eyes. Now we get to see her every week and she is doing an awesome job with her multi dimensional character.

Yay Jessica. We're so proud of you and can see you are going places.

San Francisco sights!

I did manage to squeeze in a bit of sight seeing while I was in San Francisco. Chinatown was within walking distance and Alyssa Day and I ran off for a few hours to Fisherman's Wharf. I didn't make it to Alcatraz due to the flight screwups so I had to settle for a long distance shot. Alyssa said the tour was wonderful.
We had ice cream and bought T-shirts. Also got a Hard Rock Cafe guitar magnet. I'm determined to get one from every Hard Rock I can.
