The west coast is the worst coast

Our "direct" flight stopped in Kansas City to fill up on gas because the winds were so high it couldn't make it all the way. Not only did the stop add about 45 minutes to the flight, the high winds added another hour and 15 minutes. So, we landed in LA at 3pm pst. But at least it was sunny and beautiful, right? No, it's about 12 degrees here. And a 28 mile drive to the hotel took 2 hours because of traffic. If I never come back to LA again it will be too soon. Plus, I'm working and I'd rather just go to the commerce casino. Quarter goes to everyone who comments while I'm still at the office today.

LA sucks ass. The rest of the West Coast is pretty nice though. At least San Diego rocks.

.25 for you!

This is my second time in LA. Wasn't impressed the 1st time either. San Fran is cool, only been through San Diego. golfed there. Good golf.

I was in LA when I was twelve. Like most of my life, I don't remember it. We were there b/c we helped work on the floats for the Rose Bowl Parade of '92.

According to my calculations you should be at work right....NOW. Does that mean I get paid? Can I have 25p 'cause I don't think .25$ will go that far over here, I've got mouths to feed!

It's 33 degrees here, at the end of February. In what world is this normal Texan weather?

Ethel - the other time I was here we tried to go to every bar mentioned in Swingers.

sarah - nope. My schedule changed. I haven't been in since Saturday. And now I'm in, doing absolutely nothing.

mel - bizzaro world?

joo - sucka!

julia - It's actually not horrible. I take back what I said. Just the weather is disappointing.

ogo - I would have if today was saturday.

pizz - yeah, it's actually not bad. I was just having a bad day. LA's got personality, which is more than I can say about a lot of other cities I've been to. The traffic knocks the city down a few notches though.
