OK so last night I went to the LV cocktail event at the bev center and this is how the night went: left my house at 6:15pm (live 35 miles N of Bev Hills), stopped off in Burbank to pick up my friend (lives 10 miles N of BH). Sat in traffic and got to LV at 8pm. Saw the new Motard pochette, the bigger one w/two handles (forgot name), the copper limelight, Griet and then my friend tried out some bags that she wants to get. So we had some glasses of champagne - it was fun. I was bummed that the exotics weren't there like they were supposed to be though. I really wanted to see them. Anywho we ended up leaving LV around 9:15pm and going to CPK for dinner. We get out of there around 10:45pm and it's RAINING, yeah RAINING! Well for some of you rain is good but unfortunately for most Southern Californias RAIN IS BAD! NO ONE CAN DRIVE IN THE RAIN!! hehe. So we head for home (Burbank) and again traffic is a nightmare. We're in the car and ready to start driving and it's 11pm, we get to her house and I drop her off at 12:30am (yeah an hour and a half to go 10 miles - ok we made a quick stop at krispy kreme but we went to the drive through so maybe cut off 10 mins). So at this point the freeway is NOT MOVING through Burbank on the 5fwy. I take side streets through the some scary areas and finally get back on the freeway and it's moving. I think yeah I might be home by 1am. UMMM NO! I get up to the where the 118 and 5 intersect and they close the 5 fwy, so I take the 118west to the 210 and that's flowing pretty good. Then all of a sudden they close the freeway again (the 210 turns into the 5) and make everyone get off on a side street. So then I sit on this side street FOREVER! Well after all is said and done, I get home at 3am!! YES 3AM!! It took me 2 1/2 hours to go 25 MILES!! So here's what happened: 15 big rigs got in a crash on the freeway and 5 got on fire and 1 exploded! CRAZY! So needless to say I am so tired right now and still sick - DH said I should not have gone out last night at all and now I wish I didn't.
