everyone wants to rule the elevator (even mischa barton)...
On days like this I am so glad that Al Gore invented the Internets. Because without his enterprising mind power, I could not have just learned how to totally hack an elevator if I don't exactly feel like stopping at every floor:
While some elevators require a key, others can be put into "Express" mode by pressing the "Door Close" and "Floor" buttons at the same time. This sweeps the car to the floor of your choice and avoids stops at any other floor.
You know what? I don't even care if this is true. Just the idea that it might be true makes it AWESOME. For any of my Los Angeles friends who want to find me this evening, I will be trying this out on The Grove's glass elevators. Oh yes. Those. Besides the fact that I see Mischa Barton there 24-7 (I swear I saw her sleeping on the 2nd floor of Crate & Barrel one night), those things make me go all HULK SMASH!! I'm always the one stuck parking on the suck-ass fifth or sixth floors and having to stop at every floor down. AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!!! I might even do, like, an evil villain laugh and some cruel pointing on the way down(hack permitting, of course).
p.s. Now, if someone can invent an anti-Mischa Barton-Grove hack, meaning that I could push a button and bypass her all-together, that'd be just grrreat. Mmmkay? Thanks.
p.p.s. Just kidding, I love her and want to have a dozen little Grove-shopping babies together.
