It’s Cold in LA

January 21, 2008


The three headsThis was the weekend from hell and back. It was amazing, it was draining, it was a god damn memory bitch!

I’m not about to try and account for everything that happened, at least not right now. Maybe. This weekend was the gathering. This weekend was chance I had to do something amazing for work. This week I got to meet my friends. It’s such an odd feeling, knowing these face these personalities you see on screen all the time, on youtube, on stickam, where ever. I can almost understand how people think the characters on TV are real people. almost.

You meet up with these people you’ve never really know and you find out, yea you have. You’ve always know this person. you’ve always had a place in your heart fof them, you just didn’t know who filled the gap.

So this in short was the 2nd annual LA gathering. I honestly didn’t know what to expect. I expected something a bit smaller, a bit more hectic, a bit more “who are you, who are you, who are you!” But all in all it was just the right size. I got time to talk to people I’d never heard of before. I got to meet old acquaintances and new friends, and often a combination of the two.

This morning I got a hundred messages from people that had made it home safely (thank god). Almost all the kiddies are back in their safe little beds tucked away. It’s a holiday, but I’m at work. making up for lost time, waiting for opportunity. It’s cold in LA, gray, it knows what’s been and gone. Thank God San Fran is only a month away.

more to come.

Right after work I met up with the gang, LittlepandaExpress, Mollyz2000, Chelsea and Tim. We hung at the cafe, drank coffee, there where expensive sanwhiches (yay you’re in LA grilled cheese 8 dolla’), giggles, gaufaws and awkward silences. good times.Then we headed back to my place and slipped in to something more comfortable. Oh wait I mean hung out till Tony came home, said a few words and fell asleep on his couch while we waited for SarahB to show up. We stayed up way too long, and I got about 4 hours of sleep.But oddly I’m completely awake, right now. I expect this to pass soon and I’ll fall in to some kind of waking comma. Can’t to see everyone tonight, there will be even more peeps. Eek.

The Impending Doom

January 15, 2008


It’s T-minus 20 hours before the first steps of the invasion begin.

I’m really not sure what to expect from this whole thing. I’m not sure how many people are coming or if Mr. Saftey has any tricks up his sleeve.

My suscpions were that nothing big was really going to happen. It was just going to be a littlish get togethor. Which is shameful because LA is really pretty awesome and can entertain pretty much any type of person. you just have to know where to look.

Want to be a tourist – Check out Hollywood and Highland, check out the La Brae Tar Pits, Check out the hollywood sign.

Want to party like a rock star – Check out the sunset strip, check out the hustler store, check out the
Ralph’s before 2am when they stop selling liquor.

Want to be in the scene – Check out Ed Hardy, Check out Paul Frank, Check out the Beverly Center, but call it the ‘Bev Cen’

When I was basically 25 and down I hated the thought of LA, hated the thought of big cities, and damn all if you thought I’d ever live in one. You’d be wrong. Dead wrong. Yet here I am, and for what it’s worth I love this city. I hate it. it’s full of over priced everything, plastic idiots, gossip and AA Meetings. But I love it, it’s one of the only places where everything I want to do is right in front of me.

I’m sure I could have this life back in PA. but then again. it wouldn’t be the same.

So I digress, n stuff.

It’s now t-minus 29 till I get to see people (work till 7)
