L.A. is a great big freeway.
Put a hundred down and buy a car.
In a week, maybe two, they'll make you a star
Weeks turn into years. How quck they pass
And all the stars that never were
Are parking cars and pumping gas

I don't really start threads, but there should maybe be a Defend the Indefensible for people who back into parking spaces.

Spencer Chow, Thursday, 19 April 2012 05:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

I backed into my own driveway just now

You can of course do what you like in your own driveway. I'm talking about in crowded parking lots with people waiting.

Spencer Chow, Thursday, 19 April 2012 05:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't think we use "Defend The Indefensible" anymore, Spencer. Showing your age ;)

You are correct.

Dunnoh about the mermaid parade, but DooDah's been going since '78 or so. Basically a zany parade, that seems a little tamer than it used to be.
