The Myth of Los AngelesPage 5 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
I was at a party in Arizona few years ago and as soon as someone knew I was from LA the whole room started bagging on the town...it was kinda annoying and I had never felt a need to defend LA ever...till then. It was the usual crap about the town shutting down at 9pm(NOT unless you know where a dozen fantastic eateries/bars are that is...) and how LA is sooo fake, please don't even get me started on that one!


The kicker was that a woman who had been busting my chops for half an hour came up to me and complimented me on how good my English was.......I'M FROM SCOTLAND!!!!!


I thanked her and downed another ten beers to make the night go away ;-)

There is science, logic, reason; there is thought verified by experience. And then there is California.

I lived there for fourteen years, moved to PA and I cannot believe I waited that long; that place can drive you to insanity, well okay, maybe I was insane before CA but still...

There is more to the United States than CA, that is all I am going to leave you with...
