On Saturday my friends and I met in Pasadena and took the train to China Town. In a strange twist of events, nothing pooped on me or my car. It was, however, hotter than hell and I noticed that it keeps being hotter than hell on days that we decide to explore places by foot and with heavy stuff in hand. I think HEAT is the new POOP in my life. It's ok because the remedy for heat is always ice cream and that was rarely the remedy for getting dog shit off my shoe.
I love the train. Both of us do. Many of our ideas and plans come from moments on a train. The train ride from Pasadena to China Town is a short one but it amazes me how one second you go from snooty-ville to very bad parts of town and watch it all pass by while you sit in an air-conditioned place with a big window in front of you. It's like watching a movie. I had to take photos of all the graffiti as the train sped by overpasses and walls. I am always amazed by this art and I always wonder how the artists get so good at painting in such straight lines with letters all the right height and thickness in the DARK and so BIG. I don't think I could make matching block style letters with shadows all perfect on notebook paper. The letters in those paintings are HUGE.
This weekend I also got a chance to get caught up on all my recorded shows. I decided to take a day off from stuff and just watch some tv and read magazines. I got all caught up on Million Dollar Listing. I love this show. Am I the only one watching it? All three of the agents really annoy me in that real estate agent way but I keep watching. I am really just watching to see if Chad will ever change that ridiculous hair cut meant only for six-year olds. Maybe that is what his ice cold dad is wondering, too, and why he keeps looking at his kid sideways. Or maybe the dad is just a dick. That smarmy Dr. Sam totally creeps me out. He loves his chest hair. And his eyebrows. And himself.
I can't wait for the next season to start!
