Alex:  Why does it have to be so difficult to meet up in this city!? I live on the west side, closer to the ocean, and the majority of people I have met or knew before I moved here live on the east side, closer to Hollywood or Studio City. At first the traffic didn’t bother me, but now it’s what is killing my friendships with people!

You know how long that took me? 3 hours! ...

Road Rage

Rant from Nik: Dear Sir in the unoriginal-black-SUV-that-everyone-in-LA-drives, I see nothing on your U.B.SUV.T.E.I.LA.D that indicates you are the traffic police. Green means go. It does. Check any drivers education manual. Just because you’re worried that your bumper will be stuck in the crosswalk when the light turns red, doesn’t give you the right to try and control the flow of traffic (at this very busy intersection that takes 20 minutes to get through during rush hour) ...
