Los Angeles, CA—We have reached the ocean! I was excited to begin the historic documentation of our discovery of America’s west coast, and perhaps begin plans for the construction of a city here with a thriving entertainment industry. I guess I missed the issue of National Geographic that covered someone beating me to it. Apparently I have friends here, too!
Imagine my surprise when I set foot in southern California for the first time and found it to be quite chilly. I mean, doesn’t wearing long sleeves to the botox clinic seem untoward? My dear old friend Pete and his fiancé Bethe (who are kind enough to put us up for our two nights here) have assured me that this weather is an anomaly and that tomorrow will be more pleasant. A proper exploration of the city will take place then, but now it’s time to catch up on some much-needed sleep.
