The Sarah Silverman Chicken-Out

So before I headed to California, a friend of mine (who is sort of a guy who knows people in the know and people in the know know) invited me to join him at a ‘Sarah Silverman’ book party thing while I was in LA. I was like, ‘Yeah! Coolio!’ He sent me the info…

It was at a place on Sunset called Trousdale but in my head that read ‘Troubadour’ neither of which place I’ve been to but I know Troubadour is sort of a big place so I figure Trousdale was like a just-as-big sibling or something. In any case, I pictured a big party where I could wander anonymously like a bald ghost.

Unfortunately, my friend had to back out at the last minute— but he said I’d still be on the list if I wanted to go it alone.

Overlong Trip Back Babble


I’m back in town! The trip went aok I think but who knows we’ll see fingers crossed. I talked to some people and they talked to me. I’ll tell stories later but the freshest one is the one fresh in my head so I’ll tell you that one. All about my trip back…

This time around it sent me off a random exit and I ended up detouring in my Chevy dorkmobile straight through the Long Beach hood (pants on the ground hats turned sideways). I was like, ‘Thanks GPS. Thanks for this here sidetrack. Especially when I’m short on time..’ But I cranked 80’s on 8 on Sirius radio and made the best of it. Luft Balloons blasting and throwing up made up gang signs…

The Trader Joe Divers

So the other night I was out with Roscoe and we walked past the local Trader Joe’s around 10-ish. Right around closing time. We hooked around the corner and walked smack into a decent crowd of people hanging around by the back bay of Trader Joes. Where the deliveries come in and the trash goes out or whatever. 15-20 people. My first thought was the store was closing and the employees were all leaving at the same time.

But then it seemed like something else was going on. Nobody was leaving or talking to each other. They were just sort of milling about. Seemingly anxious or something. There was a buzz in the air like something was about to happen. Like a protest or something. I couldn’t figure out what was going on so Roscoe and I pulled over to watch for whatever was coming next…
