Thai food in Hollywood with old friends.

Fresh Frenchman, fresh French bread, fresh French breakfast!

Youenn made it to The Hotel Careyfornia! He’s here for a couple of days before heading to Hawaii, but he’ll be back in August. He loved the book we made him (http://tinyurl.com/oog8g99) and it was fun looking through the photos from France with him. I’ve only been home a week, but it seems like months ago. So much, jammed into so little time. Youenn is such a great story teller. All of his books are in French though, so it’s always wonderful to sit down and here his stories in English. 

Bienvenue mon ami!

It’s amazing how many friends have held this sign!

Ethan Hawke and Ellar Coltrane participating in a Q&A on #Boyhood, hosted by Ben Lyons at the Cinerama Dome at the Arclight in Hollywood. The movie was quite simply, beautiful and sumptuous. 

"Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, this film is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. This drama charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family

dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s Yellow to Arcade Fire’s Deep Blue. The film is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible not to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.”

Pretty clouds from the roof of the Arclight in Hollywood tonight.

So this morning, Jessica convinced me to have my first ever facial. I’m going to be 50 years old next year, and I’ve never had one, so I figured what the heck. The process was fairly calming and the extraction and warm towels felt good. Then they put this Hannibal Lecter electric face mask on me, and it got a little weird!! I survived though, no worse for wear.
On the way home I saw the “Human Ken Doll” at Starbucks and discreetly snapped a photo. This guy has had something like 149 plastic surgeries. Everything on him is fake. I guess there are much more vain acts than facials!

Then as I was walking home, I heard someone yelling “Uncle Carey”. It was Arielle & Hazel, with Jorge. Hazel wasn’t in the mood to pose for a picture, but it was nice to run into two untouched friendly faces in West Hollywood!! 
Here’s an after picture too. Not sure I see a difference, but at least my skin is clean!

Celebrating Cole & Tressa’s birthdays!

Thanks for the nice pic in the striped shirt from Brittany Matthias! When in France…
