I’ve lived in Manhattan and I’ve been stuck in rush hour traffic in a cab that smells like curry. I’ve lived in Atlanta and had to endure the Perimeter at 4:30 in the afternoon in the sweltering heat of August. But I have never seen consistent traffic like the stuff you get into here in LA. I know, everyone warned me, and I thought “yeah right”. I bow in humble regret…You weren’t kidding!
The best thing about it is that the cars all have GPS and GPS directs you to all of the major roads…which have the major traffic. So I’ve spent a couple of days figuring out that I can travel quickly on Franklin, and avoid some of the gnarly mess of Sunset or Santa Monica. And I am determined to find a way to Malibu that doesn’t include coming anywhere near Beverly Hills. I’m open to suggestions, y’all.
Still no furniture but I did get a call from the dispatcher today and my things will be here bright and early Wednesday morning. She also threw in that she loves Sex and the City and had seen the movie and loved the geode earrings that SJP wore in the film. Just want to give a shout-out again to Pat, Molly, and Paulo. Love!!!
