Was it Shakespeare who said: First we kill all the birds?  
When I become King, my friends, my first order of business will be the eradication of birds from the planet — every last one of the pooping, disease filled rodents. They and their weapons of mass defecation must be eliminated from the planet.

Seriously, if a human went around shitting all over people's freshly washed cars, he'd be arrested. Yet we tolerate it from these disease-laden vermen.

It's so good to be back in the 310

I just came from fashion district downtown L.A. (finding a cheap tuxedo). Ironically, my tuxdeo for this black tie affair cost less than the DKNY-A|X outfit I'd put together. But mortals and their stupid games of dress up. Seriously, our boys in uniform fight for my right not to have to wear such silliness.

My allergies are complaining from having to breath the foul air down there.... waiting 30 minutes in the heat while the tailor probably totally screwed up the cheap pants. I've yet to try them on (that DKNY-A|X may have hope yet!)

I drove like a maniac on the way back. Everyone over there drives too slowly. I don't know what it is. Speeding down Olympic, I think I shrieked in joy when I saw downtown Century City. I just kept my eye on those buildings to know I would soon be back to the westside. Stopped at Pep Boys to get Meguiar's Final Step to sweep away the bird feces from my freshly washed car. Little bastards!

Now, I need to shower the downtown off me. Oh, 310, how I missed you!
Mood: dirty (and not the good kind)

Well, before you do any "erradication" of anything, I would suggest brushing up on your biology, my dear. Birds aren't rodents. Except for pigeons-- they're rats with wings. Dirty, filthy bastards1. In any case, if I were king, my first order of business would be to shower with you.

1They leave pretty footprints in the snow though... so pretty to look at!

I always hated biology.

And the birds shall die anyway. They shall be eradicated with the Christian right.

Off with their heads!

Ya know, you'd never know that I grew up in the 818, the 310 and 626 (when they were both still 213). I used to love love love it (including downtown) and would even hum "I love LA" while walking the blvd on a sunny afternoon.

But since coming down to OC for college a...*cough*few*cough*...years back, I have the exact same experience you describe coming down the 405 from my weekly trips up to see family, party with the cultured people, or whatever other reason takes me back up there.

I cross the 710 and I audibly comfort myself, "okay, Long Beach. Lukewarm, almost there, not long now. If I had to bed down here for the night, I'd be okay. But lets get just 10 more minutes in before we start thinking thoughts like that."

Then I cross the 605 into Seal Beach and this warm feeling, like a glow really, gradually covers me and I know that I am home in the 714. The land of plentiful ATMs in well lit areas, left hand turn signals on most intersections that are timed with one another and sensitive to the weight of your car.

Coastal Orange County (Seal Beach, Sunset Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Corona Del Mar, Laguna Beach, Dana Point, San Clemente...gotta love it!

On another note, what prices are you looking at for the tuxedo? Scott (my bf) has to buy a tux this week and is shopping around for something unique and stylish, but at the best price. Any recommendation?

I don't think you'll find anything unique in the fashion district. If you're looking for something generic, inexpensive (but not necessarily the highest quality)— pretty much the same stuff you find in little shops south of soho (is that redundant?) in NY, then downtown is your answer.

You won't find anything brand name there — well not anything that's really brand name. You can probably find some reasonable knock offs.

thought as much. I think he's going to check out men's warehouse, and if nothing is nice enough for him there, he is gonna bight the bullet and get something nice (but dreadfully expensive Im sure) at Macy's Men's Store. Oh well, Im sure when I see it on him, it will be clearly worth whatever the price is :)

Thanks for the feedback, btw!

Well I'm not a fan of playing dress up. I'd much rather be in a nice comfortable pair of Diesels, Skechers tennis shoes, with a Paul Frank t-shirt (which would cost more than I paid for my tux).

But as infrequently as I dress up that much (I really do put it off as much as I can), I just can't personally justify the expense.

I will say no one noticed the fake pleats in my shirt, nor its plastic button thingies. In fact, no one seemed to notice my bargain suit. I got several compliments on the tux and comments on how they should go out and buy one but "don't want to spend the money." I'll probably supplement it one day by going out and getting a nice tuxedo shirt for it and some nice cuff links (despite how horribly uncomfortable those things are). But I'm quite pleased with my selection at this point.

I love guiltless shopping!
