Ok.. so today was my first day driving. Needed to get from our hotel to the Warner Bros Studios for a tour, so left WELL before peak hour to beat the traffic and therefore reduce the number of times I'd get honked or road-raged. As a result, arrived approximately 1 HOUR early!!
Anyway.. studio tour was a blast! We got to see the ER set, the Friends set, watched them film a bit of a new upcoming tv show called the Sarah Connor Chronicles (tells the story of Sarah and John Connor in the time frame between Terminator 2 and Terminator 3).
Americans are so afraid of being sued.. by anyone! All the souvenirs that you can purchase have a label on them warning people that they have maybe been made out of material that is known to cause cancer or birth defects. It's actually on our hotel building entrance as well.. don't go there.
On the tour, we had to wear seat belts - we were in a GOLF CART!

After that tour, we went to Universal Studios - the minute you walk in the gate, you are bombarded with noise/music/light. The tour itself wasn't as exciting as the Warner Bros one - but it was more geared towards tourists, so it was fun. You got wet when Jaws springs up at you, we saw the remnants of a set from War of the Worlds with a full size airplane wreck, and we drove past Wisteria Lane of Desperate Housewives where they were filming, so we didn't actually get to go in. Went to see some of the shows, the best one was probably the Terminator one, but we are going back tomorrow because we didn't get to see them all.

Oh.. and we bought candy.. the ones we've heard of but never tried - milk duds are yum :) Caramel covered with milk chocolate. And I finally found out what a Pez is!
