A day in downtown
Every other Friday, John is off work. That was the case for the past Friday. We decided to make it a day in downtown LA.

We took train, then dash to have breakfast at the Pantry. At 10:30 in the morning there was actually a line out the door. But we didn't have to wait long to get seated. The food was plenty and as yummy as I remembered, which the last time I was there was about ten years ago. JE enjoyed it too and ate everything on his plate.

After breakfast, we took another dash and headed out to California Science Center. It was our original plan, but when the dash dropped us off in front of Natural History Museum, JE decided he wanted to go there instead. We have a membership, so money was not lost on admission. We saw dinosaurs, mammals, displays from the movie Night at the Museum, and butterflies.

When all were seen, we headed out to Philippes for some french dip sandwich. Oh my God! I was so disappointed, the sandwich sucked so badly. Cole's is so much better and bigger, unfortunately it is closed for remodeling. At least I know now. Needless to say I left very angry and unsatisfied. We did end up having some mochi afterwards, so it made up a bit.

It was a pretty good day spent with family and not to mention the gas and parking we saved.

John got a notice for jury duty, it happens to be around the time we are in Australia. He had to call back and reschedule. He is actually excited about it. As for me, long ago I have checked that I have small ones to take care of at home, I have not got a notice for years.

Heh. I spend my one day off by coming back in to downtown :P

Then again I used to do the same thing back home working in the Newsagency. I'd get off at 9am, go home, have (second) breakfast, and quite often would later find myself back at the newsagency chatting to my coworkers or the boss.
