Got my first parking ticket yesterday on my day off. Determined to explore Sunset Blvd. and find the new CD by Nellie McKay at Amoeba Records. I had attempted to go to Amoeba on Sunday but parking was a nightmare. Today, I easily found street parking. When I returned, there was a ticket on my car for parking during street sweeping hours. I’m peeved at myself and also because the new CD was not available. Occupying my mind is what to put on the memo area on the check that will go to the city of L.A.
I’m slowly adjusting to Los Angeles. The hours at work are nice: stay up late and sleep in. The traffic is not so bad and I’m aware of what time to avoid being on the freeway. As for the homesickness, that will take some time.
