Me and George (and I don't mean Bush!)

Last night (early this morning) I dreamed that I was with a big group of ordinary people in California and we were told we were chosen to be in the next George Clooney movie. And they came to me and said I had to lose some weight. Can you tell I watched the Oscars last night? We watched at a friend's house and he has a wide screen tv. The signal he received for the Oscars was in 4:3 ratio (regular tv) so he used an alternate mode (I like to call it stretch mode) to widen the picture and fill the screen. The result was that the women onscreen looked *normal*. Well, Nicole Kidman was still a bit thin, but I cannot imagine what it would have been like to see the whole thing in normal width...

It's another bad day in the south for me. The week in California just whetted my appetite for the west--not that I want to live in California either. There are too many people in the LA metro area--and the houses are way to expensive. Better suited to me would be the coastal area between LA and San Francisco, but they are too technophobic there: Our cell phones did not work most of the time, finding free wireless hotspots was rare, and when there was one little rain storm and it knocked out the electricity in San Simeon for several hours. Fun was had by candlelight, but still...

There's more technology in Monterey, or in Silicon Valley. Or you could work your way back into the Stone Age...

Yeah, but a lot of us in the L.A. metro area are cool!
