LA la land...

I'm in LA.

I don't think I'll be booking any more early morning flights for a while, well, hopefully, like I stated in a previous blog, I won't be booking anymore flights for a while. I need to spend some time in my new abode, which I have decided feels more like I'm living in Berkeley then in San Francisco. Regardless, I love it and can't stop talking about how much I love it. Have I told you lately that I love Williambsurg???

Uhm..what else...I should be outside soaking up the LA weather, but instead I'm inside sitting at the kitchen table sort of hiding my face in the computer. Well, maybe hiding is the wrong word, but sometimes a computer is a good way to not have to talk when you're not in the mood.

There's something about LA that I really don't like. I have my ideas, but I'm not sure what it is exactly. It's definitely not a place that I could call home...watch, now I'm living here in a year...no, really, I don't think that will happen.

The lady at the car rental place got pissed at me this morning. In fact she told me that I didn't have to be so mean. I didn't think I was all that mean, but what the f--- is the deal with being able to reserve a car, only to get to the car rental place to find out that the car you rented at the price you rented it at, doesn't actually exist, or there's no more of that car in stock? This has happened to me more than once, and I think it's some sort of bullsh-t scam.

I wasn't going to hear of it. I told her I didn't want to upgrade for $5 a day, even though in the end, I am paying that money for the insurance, and even if, in the end, $5 isn't really a big deal. It's more the principal of it all. Don't let me reserve a car if you don't have the car in stock..and then, because she was so visibly upset that I refused to pay the $5 upgrade, she told me how she wasn't making commission and that she would give me a car for the price I was quoted and then the car she gave me was on empty..meaning the gas tank was actually on the red E!!! I didn't want to lose my sh-t any more than I already had, so I decided to just call Enterprise and let them know the deal. I'll have to see if they charge me for gas when I return the car. All I know is that if they do then *Belinda (that's the name of the girl I spoke to today) will get another piece of my mind..and Enterprise won't like me anymore...and won't that be a shame...and...

I'm grumpy in LA..maybe that's why I don't like it here. LA makes me grumpy...
