Moi, LA, 1980's.
(In keeping with our current horsey theme, I was wearing an Arabian horse t-shirt under my vintage men's tuxedo jacket)
I've been known to frequent hot spots in LA, just not frequently. And of course in this point in our lives we actively try NOT to go anywhere that the in crowd goes. Cuz we're not. In. AT ALL. But in the 80's I was single and living in LA and riding the bus to work and . . . back up there, Vintage Christine. Riding the bus to work with a bunch of little old Jewish ladies who screamed at the black bus driver is NOT cool. Funny yes, cool no. I'm not Jewish but I would've converted if it meant I'd get the balls to yell at bus drivers in LA. Apparently one of the things they teach aspiring bus jockeys is a course called "How To Be An Asswipe and Become Deaf While Driving a City Bus". WHAT, you rang the bell and wanted to get off back there? Didn't hear it--so what's the big deal, get off now and walk back six blocks to the hospital. WHAT, I just sideswiped that parked Lamborgini? Hey, they can afford to get it fixed, stupid rich whiteass muhfuhs. Hopefully, this has changed since the 80's but somehow I doubt it.
Are you going to get to the point here or does this free associating just go on forever? Hey, sometimes it's refreshing to write like all those would-be already-world-weary-at-21 aspiring novelists out there in blogland! You know, the ones who go on and on and on and on about one scene in a movie YOU'VE never even heard of and wouldn't want to watch anyway since they never even CONSIDERED Johnny Depp for the lead.
(Sounds of Vintage Christine followers screaming and bolting for the exit door under the "Followers" heading)
Question: It's 1980, I'm surrounded by THREE cute guys, including one in a cowboy hat who was an actual bull rider, so WHY AM I FROWNING?
To tell you the truth, I can't remember, but suffice it to say that what I DO remember is the next morning I had a smile on my face and a cowboy hat on my bedpost.
Ah, the 70's and 80's. Thank you God for letting me do all that stuff and still be alive in 2010.
