Rattling off impressions from my West Coast trip from a middle Atlantic girl

You will need three paper straws to drink smoothies.
You can ask for a plastic bag but I am sure you will be put on a list.
There will be a wealthy white guy any given day at lunch or in a coffee shop having a meeting with an employee/s who is very impressed with himself and the ability to relate to the working man- the haughty taughty boss is everywhere.
The 2 hours late thing is real.
Drivers will stop for you and allow you to cross the street alive and some seem like they enjoy the delay.
I only saw one stoner. If you do not seek a dispensary if as if they don’t exist.
The Barbie doll bodies were not in areas I toured, I saw not one silicon implant.
Walk of fame area La is a little seedy.
Skip the piers if you are a seasoned New Jersey boardwalk veteran. Very under whelming.
Beaches had gorgeous views and are free.
Yes fresh fruit that actually tasted like fruit. Avocados, yes.

I am not big on the celebrity thing but I did opt to see inside the Chinese Theatre. My daughter lured us to the museums free admission to the LACMA(for having a bank of America card), which I loved. I saw my fill of Picassos. Better yet was the J. Paul Getty Museum – The Getty center- amazing views and I got to cross another Van Gogh of my list- Irises.

Did I mention an earthquake?

Loving this review! If up here, we threaten to mow people down in crosswalks and then begrudgingly let people live to see the other side of the street. Not me - generally here it’s a very risky thing to walk. Riding bikes is also hazardous here.

People here are BUSIER and MORE IMPORTANT and DON’T HAVE TIME FOR PEDESTRIANS looking for free plastic bags (for a quarter, you may have one). Even MALL SHOPPING I’ve found myself walking around with new clothes draped over my arms with tags hanging in protest of the bag charge.

The stoners gather in certain places. University campuses in particular. I think they isolate the rest of the time (pot paranoia!).

The straws ARE A DISASTER! Fuggedaboudit

Loved your thoughts so far. Yeah, LA is seedy all right. Silicone is in the fancy suburbs and California with gated communities and lavish properties of expensive landscaping. Boring unless you’re good at landscaping and want a job.
Beverly Hills, Malibu, etc. I think Hollywood is also kinda seedy, but I could be mistaken.

Glad you survived and LOVED your field trip report card!

Yes, the fruit IS DIVINE (hence my recent weight gain) and the avocados are perfect right now. Glad to hear you enjoyed them!

Hope Mom is getting better and heading home soon. Hugs to your Dad!

nan,

im so glad you had a great interesting time! damn those bamboo straws. you can watch them unravel right in front of you. and they taste like cardboard. like everybody does not carry their own metal straw with their water pipe goshdarnit!!!!

I know save the turtles, I know... but im a rebel. and I use plastic. if over 75% of the non composted material is disposable diapers..why are we picking on straws.. or their wrapper for crying out loud! ok sorry reeling myself back in...

walk of fame I hear you.. years ago had my rental car broken into! and yes I getcha on the piers,,yersey and atlantic city. doesn't get much better! and I miss coney island!

fruit and vegetables must have been amazing! im gonna skin the chipmunks plucking my stuff too early and leaving it on the pavement! rascals!

im glad for you that your daughter enjoys the cultural side. and you enjoyed it together. but the question ive been dying to ask you.. did you enjoy the red bali?

Mom is doing better. Rehab has an excellent staff.

Both times I took Red Bali I dosed wrong. It is very much a winding down strain, I under dosed in LA and effects were short lived on a full stomach. I over sedated the dose the second time, its strong enough where I need to reconsider and redo. Also the caps do not weight 750mg more towards 600mg. I am going to uncap it and try again on Friday.
I decided to not fight the hair and channeled my inner 80's Stevie Nicks. Bigger the better.

Loving your update on Mom, Nan70!

Very cool to hear that news.

Not as humid this week. Hair is nice - pain is throbbing so it’s nice to have hassle free hair. I’m quite glad I HAVE hair at this point.

Loved your adaptive plan! Ha!

Hey Nan,
I looked online but couldn't find any photos of her having a bad hair day. Just these normal ones. :silly:
Great voice and great hair. :-bd
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. ;)

That’s apparently done ON PURPOSE and can likely be UNDONE.

I’m not joining the “hair extensions” of the newer generations. Hard to tell which part of humans is natural anymore with fake hair, eyelashes, brows, boobs, etc...
