#iamconfused in Beverly Hills, day 2


So did you check out the link from my previous post? You may be a bit confused, as was I but my daughter attempted to explain.

Bottom line Shia LaBeouf sits silently with a bag over his head. It’s referred to as performance art. Forgive me if I do not understand the “performance” part. Sunday was the final day of his “performance” and I was curious so we swung by to check it out. My daughter was thinking if the line were short she’d wait to take her turn. Not so much! The photo below shows just a fraction of the line. It snaked to the left along the side of the building.  We struck up a conversation with four twenty-something girls sitting in folding chairs. They had been in line since 4am, it was 1:30pm when we were there! They felt the odds of making it in were slim to none but they were going to wait it out because they had tried the day before and failed. Nuts I tell you, nuts!! But TMZ and BuzzFeed (its headquarters are across the street from the gallery) were all over this story so it was big news that weekend. Needless to say my daughter settled for a photo out front (and yes, that is a real Les Miz tattoo on her thigh).


Then it was off to get up close and personal with the “Hollywood” sign, something else I had never done. My goodness that is some road up the hill to the sign, narrow, winding and houses on each side. You cannot park along the road, which I totally understand. You have to make your way to a very crowded, very narrow parking lot for a dog park. My husband dropped us off because the lot was full.  My daughter and I hiked up the street to get a better photo angle of the sign. I wonder how many selfies were taken with that sign that day, there were tourists everywhere but I am glad we did it, something to check off the bucket list. After our sign visit we hit the road and headed back to Phoenix.
