I had the ultimate L.A. experience. And it involved the following:
A couple friends and I decided to head up to L.A. to see Cat Power. Knowing the show was already sold out we were going to test our luck with the scalpers. After awhile of walking around the block the possibilities of getting in looked slim. But, lo and behold a guy walked up to me and just gave me his spare ticket....Free of Charge! A little while later my friend Sarah was approached by another guy, who gave her a ticket...Free of Charge! Which I concluded that I had just witnessed the power of being a female! Cat Power would be on stage soon, so we decided to go in. The guys lucked out with free tickets about 10 minutes later and were in just after the 1st song.
I was not in L.A. more than five minutes when Lindsey Lohan strutted by. I saw flashes from papparzi, but I thought they were talking pictures of me, until I realized (I wasn't famous) and that they were pointed at two skinny girls walking briskly to the entrance of the theater. She walked past me and I still didn't recognize her until my friend said who it was.
Lindsey and I went to the same show...no big deal!
After the show we headed over to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffle for a little dabble of soul food. It was grub. GRUB!
