everything is three hours away from anything else in los angeles, as near as i can tell. and every self-respecting starlet and congressman has a sex tape or at least a self-portrait on the market, so i stopped in at creative artists agency. they said i wasn’t a vivid or girls gone wild type. they said they would try to position me with disney.
the people are so cool about decorating their houses for the holidays. today is june seventh, st. willibad of wessex day. here is how some angelenos decorated their house–
los angelenos are exuberant artistes and they don’t require a gallery to show their work. i was standing on the corner of sunset boulevard and silver lake, when i saw two youths creating a mural on the side of a building across the street. unfortunately, every self-respecting avenue in los angeles has seven lanes in either direction so by the time i crossed, the two artistes had taken their spray paint cans and their ladder. this is when i observed that everyone here takes their physical exercise seriously. those dudes were fast!
there are a lot of social clubs in los angeles, like the university club and the union league club in chicago. i think i would like to join the homeboys.
i met with becky hirschmann, who is a winnetka native forging a career as an actress in los angeles. she used to be in children’s theater with my two sons. i was amazed at how beautiful and poised she is–but then again, of all the gals i met in children’s theater, i always knew she would have her own television show. she didn’t know much about my project to meet every one of my facebook friends. she was surprised i am scared of flying–i didn’t want to alarm her by listing all the other things i’m afraid of. but she was delighted to find out that she’s f2fb #145 and we bought a tiara to commemorate the occasion:
i will see becky again when she comes back to winnetka soon, or when i end up back in california (which i will since i have a lot of facebook friends here). also, if she makes it big, she has promised me a guest house invitation!
then i headed for calabasas to meet my next facebook friend candice appleton vaughn. calabasas is, as winston churchill opined, a gated community within a gated community within a gated community. i expected trouble getting past the gates. . . but i had heard that britney spears lives somewhere nearby, so i’m in! and maybe i can get my new homeboys to help me!
my best anxiety attacks i reserve for the san diego expressway, highway 405 and the ventura freeway, #101.
