I'm writing from a Hollywood-like bungalow (actually it's a Marina Del Rey-like bungalow, as that's where I'm physically located at the moment). I've come out to blog from an IBM conference this week, and got an early start leaving Austin this morning around 11:15 AM and arriving in LA only an hour and a half later, at 12:30. Amazing how fast I got here!
I haven't been to LA in many moons. Every time I get here I remember why I don't get out here more often. Too many cars, too many people, too much smog. But other than that, I really like it.
I'm meeting up with a friend from my hometown for dinner, probably somewhere down in Santa Monica, before heading off to Anaheim tomorrow. Meanwhile, Ed tells me that the Minnow (Gilligan's Island's "Minnow") embarked from Marina del Rey on their ill-fated voyage.
I'll be sure to keep an eye out for Ginger and Maryanne. The rest of 'em can join Jack and the rest of the cast of "Lost." That oughta add some drama to the mix.
