Have a Great Weekend Guys

I’m burnt. Wrote for the paper all day, including ‘Keri’s Top 5 Best Things from the LA Auto Show‘, which I rather like, read it here.

Completed all deadlines by late afternoon, just inhaled Swiss Chalet, now I’m in the middle of running errands, which I’ll leave you with, because I just don’t have it in me to spend a few more hours in front of a computer.

TTY Monday, enjoy the last weekend of November ’14! xo

 

 

11:30 pm and Just Got Home

My flight landed at 7:30, but my car’s battery was dead, so a couple hours hanging around Terminal 1, then CAA saved me.

A fast Happy Meal in the driver’s seat, cause can’t shut the car off in case it doesn’t start again, and now finally I’m back in my house, which I still get nervous leaving alone, even though people come to check on it (ty).

I like airports, always have.

I don’t like travelling to the other side of the country, because by the 3rd day when you adjust to the time difference, it’s time to leave.

And days spent in transit are like ghost days: poof, there goes the last Thursday in November that I will remember practically none of. Feels wasteful.

LAX is UGH

Hoovered up 94 MBs while gone.

kk 2 newspaper deadlines tomorrow, so for today that’s me complete TTYT

 

 

Great Day at the Show, Tell You About it Soon

Lots of cars and lots of photographs, and I interviewed the head designer of Ford and we laughed a lot, and an auto show smells so good, and then all the cars start to look the same to be honest, and now the end. Will blog my favourites soon.

Flying out tomorrow morning. Heard I’m coming home to feet and feet of snow. I don’t have a shovel though.

TTYT

 

 

 

Day 2 in LA Done

The days go fast here guys. Up and at ‘em early, then to the Connected Car Expo straight to the car hacking talk, obvs.

Blog tag = auto security 

I’ve introduced you to the guy 2nd from the right, Chris.

It was a half-hour panel I’m pleased to report since my epiphany 3 months ago, I not only keep up, but could almost have sat up there with ‘em.

Then to the 2016 Ford Explorer pre-reveal, which I can’t show you, because of the embargo.

It looks good though, and my article and photo gallery will be live on Autonet tomorrow if you’re interested.

Haha, look how my head is lined up over that guy.

Included this in the photo gallery for the paper, because I am a professional.

Spent all afternoon writing. Here’s what LA looks like for me.

These press trips are gruelling. Not complaining, I understand how fortunate I am, and that it looks glamourous from the outside, but it’s mostly a lot of time by myself at a hotel desk.

Made it to dinner almost on time, and then snuck away from the festivities as usual, and now I’m back at the above desk typing this to you.

But all my writing is now done though, so tomorrow all I have to do is take photos of about 8 new cars and batch upload them to the paper.

Plus document my favourites for here, which is good since come on: I’m at an auto show, there should be more photos of cars here no?

Night TTYT

 

 

In LA for the Week, for the Auto Show

Took forever to get here.

Plane was 3.5 hours late leaving, it’s a 5 hour flight, so today may be the longest I ever sat still for. It’s not for me.

This’ll be my 3rd time attending the show in 4 years.

Non-car nerds: this is THE car show of North America. If you’re an automaker, and have something special to debut, you do it here.

Last year I was also here with Ford, here’s the show tag.

And last year is when I invented the attack, “The USB to Ego Attack”, here.

Because our plane was so late, we missed Ford’s big Mustang GT reveal, but made it in time for dinner.

Then to a party in The Hills (where they filmed the TV show? Yes Keri). Cool neighbourhood.

Lincoln took over an entire house to introduce its new Lincoln Black Label line. Basically, it’s the highest end Lincoln possible, very chic, will tell you more in a dedicated post.

The guys.

And that’s it for now.

It’s 11pm here, which is really 2am, and I got up at 4am to keep the dream alive, have deadlines tomorrow that take priority, TTY after that.
