Hollywood, CA — Southern California has been good to me. Seen some amazing sights (both natural and quite unatural) and some great people.
My first night in San Diego I went to dinner with a friend of mine. The two of us joked about how our rather fetching waitress probobly thought we were quite the cute couple. The resturant was a family stlye Italian place with enormous portions. So, we decided to split an entree. The next time she stopped by the table we were discussing his apartment search in West Hollywood. When our bill was delivered, our suspisions about our waitress’s suspisions about us were confirmed.
We capped off the night by taking in some dodgeball at a country and western bar. This was more or less what I expected. A mixture of a competitive athletic endevour, a crowd, alcohol and objects being thrown at peoples’ heads led to some near brawls. Unfortunately, a full fledged riot never broke out. There were the teams and individuals that took it way too seriously. Some had uniforms. Some had startegies. The most amusing aspect was the complete unwillinglness of the players to leave when eliminated. I would thing there would be some level of honor in bar dodgeball. I would be wrong. The referees (all five of them) would practically have to drag these guys off the court.
The next day we went hiking in Lajolla. I was privy to some breathtaking views. We found a great peak overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We had a bunch of surfers to our left and a nude beach to our right. A brisk uphill hike is an all too painful reminder of how much my cardiovascular health has deteriorated. After a refreshing shower and an old man nap it was time for a rolicking evening. The bulk of the evening was spent hanging out with a couple of young ladies who were both recently single and needed some cheering up. And you what cheers a lady up in a time like this? Well, apparently, it’s pajamas, board games and loads of MTV produced reality programming.
Today we made the trip up to LA. It’s amazing how fast things move out here. I was in town for less than 24 hours and already had opportunities on stage, as well as in front of and behind the camera. I may hang around here for a while.
