Jen and Carolyn in LA (long-lost envelope edition)

I am going through some old paperwork, and found an envelope from the Ford Great Escape, an experience I blogged about during which comedian Carolyn Castiglia and I were flown out to LA by the Ford Motor Company to drive Ford Escapes and get wined and dined, following which we came back home and blogged about it a lot (photo by Carolyn, via timer).

Carolyn and I were in the car and she was driving, and I said something she thought was funny, and she demanded I write it down, so it ended up on this envelope. The conversation reads:
Jen: It's a system of checks and balances. While you represent unfettered creativity, I represent German efficiency.

Carolyn: Are you German?

Jen: No, i just felt like I needed an adjective.

Ha! It's still funny.

Hey, you can get closer to the sign that that without permission -- in fact, I think it's the next ridge up where there's a nice green and parking on a hill.

Yes, we had some serious trouble with the directions. Give New Yorkers a car, what do you want?

In all fairness, it's kinda tricky to make it to that spot. Every time you see a "No Access To Hollywood Sign" sign, you ignore it and go on, until the last one, which tells the truth (it dead-ends at a gated community... there's deeper meaning in there somewhere).

The road wraps around that green, a good view of the sign, and if you keep heading up the hill, you go by Madonna's old place.
