There's No Place Like Home

For my 2.7 readers who were worried about the absence of the Friday Funnies last week: have no fear! The Friday Funnies are still around. I was unable to post them because I was at a conference in Los Angeles. Said trip gave me plenty of material for this entry. I don't like L.A. I have visited there before and this second trip confirmed that it is just not the city for me. I have no desire to ever go there again. But L.A. is good for stories, so here are a few of the things that happened while I was in La La Land.

Things I saw:
A 6'5" transvestite in a mini-dress
An attractive, well-dressed 30-something African-American man with a mohawk
A 50-something woman with the word "vagina" on her t-shirt

Things that happened within a 50 mile radius of me:
Hundreds of lightening strikes
One mudslide
One earthquake
One day of 112 degree temperatures

People staying in my hotel:
A Master Spiritualist and his conferees
All of the Miss Universe contestants

Number of live roaches I saw outside my house the moment I got home:
Ahhh. Welcome home.
