-in Los Angeles:
Los Angeles hosted CicLAvia, a gigantic event hosting tons and tons of cyclists. Needless to say, being in a car downtown yesterday was worse than usual, and I had the personal misfortune of experiencing that (having foolishly not taken into account what kind of traffic this would create for those of us in cars.) That having been said, the energy was amazing, and apparently Lance Armstrong was there too! The event's name is a play on the Spanish word "ciclovía" which simply means "bicycle lane." Read about it on the cicLAvia blog!
-in celebrity fantasy land, Encino in this case:
Tori Spelling is selling her Encino house for 3.2 million, which would be 1.1 million above what she paid for it. It is being listed by Amy Colvin at Hilton & Hyland, whose wedding Tori was recently a bridesmaid in. Follow this story on The Real Estalker!
-in real estate/technology:
-Zillow acquired the website Postlets which is a real estate website which enables its 500,000 users to create listings that are then cross posted to 13 real estate and social media sites. The details of the deal went unannounced, but I can only imagine that this will be a lucrative investment for Zillow. Read about it here!
-and now for something random, in Eastern Europe:
A geriatric woman in Georgia (in Eastern Europe, not the US) was on a hunt for copper wire when she inadvertently disconnected the Internet for 90% of Armenia for a whopping 12 hours by snipping the wrong wire. And you thought it was bad when you used to get kicked off of AOL because someone was calling you. Read about it!
Happy Monday to everyone! Try not to get too Garfield on us.
