Day 6: "Yes, Steve, they're all hookers. Hookers with hearts of gold."

The day began slightly afternoon. We were both fully recovered from the Cheesecake Factory fiasco the day before, and woke up starving. We decided to head out and grab some lunch, but first Kieran had to remove the duct tape from the side of his car.

We decided to hit up the Baja Fresh, a quaint Mexican chain owned by Wendy's that's not on the east coast. I had a Mahi Mahi taco, and a shrimp taco, and got a souvenir cup.

Afterwards, Kieran decided to take me too this wacky museum called "The Museum of Jurassic Technology".

It was closed. So we just went to the Getty.

The Getty is a great art museum containing many classical pieces, all in a giant building in the California hills.

It also has a great of view, except when there is smog.

The Getty isn't actually that large, and we ended up seeing the whole thing in a couple of hours, so we left there, and ended up at the only other thing I planned on seeing in LA-

Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash West! I geeked out, and took tons of photos, and bought a signed copy of Kevin's critically panned new book.

We ended up back a Kieran's place, where Kieran went from this:

to this:

and off we went to Angelino's for some Italian food.

Afterwards, Kieran drove me past this house, where the owner decided it would be in good taste to have over thirty miniature statues of David in his front lawn.

And at X-Mas, they all wear Santa hats!

We topped off the night at the Standard, a most excellent hotel bar in downtown LA.

The place had a most excellent view, and they had a giant projector showing "The Empire Strikes Back" on a building across the street.

On the way back, Kieran decided we should go for a ride down Mullholland Drive, which was awesome...

...except for the fact that we took a wrong turn at the end of the road, and ended up getting lost in the Valley.

After finding our way, we made a quick stop at a local fine eating establishment.

where I purchased two Big Bites, and loaded them up with free condiments.

We ended up back at Kieran's place, where we attempted to watch "Fletch", but exhaustion overtook us, and we passed out halfway through.
