Follow Me For A Week
Go to one of the hundreds of nearby hiking spots to remind myself I live in California. Sometimes take a day/evening trip to Vegas/Palm Springs/San Diego/etc. Lab is also an option depending on how my current projects are going.
Catch a movie at the Fox in Westwood or one of the many other beautiful theaters scattered around the city. Watch the painful demise of Kobe at a Lakers game in Staples Center.
