I took a brief detour through the lovely city of Inglewood on my way to the hotel, but managed to remember that I need to stay this side of the 110 if I don’t want to also take a lovely tour of South Central.
Needless to say, after realizing what a lovely part of town I’m staying it, I decided to treat myself to a slightly larger car and valet parking.
Yes, Sarcastro, I am being a tad petulant.
On the other hand, right where I am is very beautiful and I am actually excited to get to explore some this week.
I’m a little frazzled from all the flying. Both planes were packed and I had to break down and buy a book in Dallas because I got through everything I’d brought to read on the plane.
I picked up The Prestige, which is really good so far, if a little too conflicted about whether it’s a book about a trick or a character study. Coble, I think you’d like it, if you haven’t read it. It’s like Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell but with less whimsy and more Nikoli Tesla.
Okay, I must go find something to eat and unpack.
