Santa Monica

I spent most of the day traveling to and from Santa Monica. LA is the only place i visit where the trip takes longer than the visit. It was LA Story LA today: sunny and 72, smog, traffic. I had lunch at a sushi place, and my host used the GPS in his BMW to guide us the 2 miles to the restaurant. I now have the Tool song Aenima running through my head. Fret for your figure, and fret for your latte, and fret for your hairpiece, and fret for your lawsuit, and fret for your prozac...

On the plus side, i think the 73 toll road is the best thing ever. You can completely skip the the 5-405 merge now if you're willing to pay about 4 bucks each way. It's worth it. If you've never had the pleasure, the 405 merge is like one of those games where you have 8 interlocked plastic squares arranged in a 3x3 grid and you have to slide the pieces around to make a picture. Except there are about a million plastic squares and it's not fun and it takes longer and there's a non-trivial probability that somebody might shoot you.
