When was the last time you spotted someone randomly? Today, I’m traveling back to Austin, TX and I felt like being silly and blogging about how I feel when I see
Liv Tyler at LAX and do nothing.
So, chilling at the airport, working on notes from a sales call, converting analog notes to digital text.
I’m listening to
Moderat on youtube Maybe dancing around a little
At a standing desk working
Typical traveling Tyler
For some odd reason, I always stare at people getting off of planes first.
When you are at the airport too much, you need something to pass the time, and staring at people who don’t mind spending three or four times more for a ticket may be the most entertaining group of them all.
Why? Because these people paid a tremendous amount more to sit in a subtly different seat, and who knows…
Maybe I will see Hulk Hogan again. Which by the way, I did see Hulk at the Austin Airport once before during SXSW. ‘Oh brother’ he was not friendly
So anyway, today I just noticed…
Liv Tyler arriving at the airport in LAX.
She was staring at me for a long time, I had a weird interaction with her, and felt like blogging about it because it’s probably a better read than hearing me talk about technology.
She looked at me as if she knew who I was.
Liv Tyler gave this Tyler face at least 5+ seconds, which if anyone gave you that much attention,… wouldn’t you think it’s a little weird?
Being completely disconnected from Pop culture, I didn’t know her name.
If I did, I might have mentioned I was named after her father, Steven Tyler .
My thought is that she was looking at me because she has 3million + followers on Facebook and has no clue how outrageous someone is going to be in public.
Facebook followers and 1.8million Instagram followers… I bet Liv Tyler has a great website.
Yeah, it’s going to be high end, awesome, cool… some sort of personal website or blog, with her name in the domain name.
Being a website nerd, I found her website.
www.livtylerwebsite.com – if you want to go to this website, you’re probably like me and thinking, “this is going to be a great website, she’s a millionaire…”
The website above is very out of date.
So, I’m staring at Liv Tyler and Nothing is Clicking.
Staring, no clicks. Is this the person from princess diaries? Not sure…
While I’m aggregating all the movies she has been in, I really had nothing to add to her day… Besides my weird shit.
So, I gave her a dorky smile, like any person is going to get when they stare at me for longer than the norm… OH HI THERE!
I did say “HI” silently with my mouth, and a weird wave because that’s my shit, you didn’t know that?
Why wouldn’t you give someone an awkward wave?
Now for a conclusive sentence.
Regardless of who you are, I’m really not going to remember your name. Alright, good talk. #badwithnames

Here’s a review of
Hotel Irvine in Irvine California. The City of Irvine has a Population of 266,122 (2016) and you’ll notice that if you happen to book your hotel room with a good view.
Here’s a great view I captured with my camera. Each night offers a spectacular view.
Hotel Irvine is a beautiful hotel, massive palm trees surround the building, and walking around the area is a relaxing experience.
Everyone working the front desk is helpful and I’m sure asking for a good view will work too.
I enjoyed walking around the hotel at night. The weather gets a little cold at night so be sure to bring a light coat.

You just got to Hotel Irvine…
First, let me guess, most of you are probably traveling to Hotel Irvine and may not want to go get dinner outside of the hotel.
No worries they do late night hand foods. Room service is fast, they charge it to the room, and the food is very affordable.
Snapped a quick picture of the entrance of Hotel Irvine in Irvine California. These pretty succulents make me feel like I’m back in Texas.
The hotel lobby has art, some plants, a bar, a few lounges, a gym, and a place for weddings & private events.
Hotel Irvine and the Market Place are a great mixture.
Generally, Hotels have a little menu or dining area. Hotel Irvine offers a dining area and a secondary place to get food called the Market Place.
You can phone in late night room service and they will personally go grab you goodies inside of the store too.
panini, soda, fancy candy, etc.
You know you like pizza when you order it twice. The margarita pizza at Hotel Irvine is delicious.
I personally enjoyed the pizza so much… I ate pizza two nights, one night after the next night.
I’m a little piggy.
Or I’m just a big fan of pizza?
Let me get back to the review – the view is amazing. Hopefully, you have a balcony view.
Another beautiful sunset in Irvine California @ Hotel Irvine.
Hotel Irvine Market Place is truly delicious
My first night I was surprised by how yummy the food was at Market Place in Hotel Irvine. The pizza was pitched over the phone as ‘extremely good’ and I also had a bit of a sweet tooth too.
Ask the person on the phone to grab their favorite snacks too. I gave the guy a spending limit and was pleased with the results.
When the bill came to the room, I was blown away that I was completely full with only $15.
Hote Irvine isn’t overpriced like other California Hotels.
If you’re reading this and wondering, “How the hell did you spend $15 in California, on dinner, at a hotel!”
Well, my response to you is –
they simply have good prices and good food. After a few 100% travel jobs, I want to say this is one of my favorite hotels in a few years.
The Market Place is yummy and affordable is the tip of the iceberg at Hotel Irvine too.
Let me explain why!
If you enjoy walking – let me show you around Hotel Irvine.
Walking around Hotel Irvine is worth your time.
Let’s explore together. Here are a few pictures were taken walking around inside and outside of Hotel Irvine.
Palm Trees outside of Hotel Irvine are massive.

Art work in the front lobby at Hotel Irvine. Almost as if something is growing on the canvas.

I love the succulents @ Hotel Irvine. Here’s a better look at their front lobby plant.
Let’s walk away from Hotel Irvine and enjoy the view.
Walking around Hotel Irvine is equally enjoyable as being a guest. There are a lot of lush gardens and amazing little walk paths within 200ft from the hotel entrance.
Can you find something inspiring outside of Hotel Irvine?
I’m putting you to the test – try to find something beautiful and inspiring around Hotel Irvine. If you’ve read this far, you may even leave a comment about what you found, in the comments below.
Here’s what I found.
Being around Microsoft, Coca-Cola and other big headquarters is a great feeling, and being in the technology industry for nearly a decade has really made me appreciate these little things.
I’m not surprised these companies have an HQ in this location, it’s beautiful here in Irvine California.
I didn’t expect to find these headquarters on my walk, I had no idea where I was going, and it turned out to be a very inspiring walk.
I’m excited to bring my wife and son here next.
Hotel Irvine was a great hotel overall and I’m excited to return.
