*grump* Extry 25 bux.
Now, since there isnt a 'fleabaghotel.com' - anyone have a favorite grungy hotel/motel in the West Hollywood/Hollywood/Downtown LA area I can crash at for less than 50 bux a night? 35 bux is my preferred rate.
Yes, they exist. I know this, every city Ive been in has such hotels.
Hm. Maybe craigslist.
From last night's episode of NCIS...
Dr. Mallard: "I need your approval to do the procedure."
Agent Gibbs: "Why?"
Mallard: "It is *prohibitively* expensive and rarely works."
Gibbs: "So is marriage. Do it."
Heehee, love that show. :)
By the way - Dr "Ducky" Mallard is played by David McCallum, the original Man from U.N.C.L.E.
It's Illya fuckin Kuryakin, man.
JPennant: Let me see how much of an era difference we have.. :-)
JPennant: "Illya Kuryakin"
McClint: sounds familiar
McClint: but i can't place it
McClint: olympic gymnast? heheheh
JPennant: When I was a kid.. the instant answer from 90 percent of the worlds population wouldve been
JPennant: "Man from U.N.C.L.E"
McClint: ah. i never watched that show. it just didnt grab my attention
JPennant: youd have to see the first year of it in B&W
JPennant: but its just not your era
JPennant: It occured to me because of NCIS, where David McCallum plays a character onthe show
JPennant: yeah, one of the CBS CIS shows
McClint: you mean CSI?
JPennant: sorry CSI
JPennant: its NCIS tho
JPennant: love that show
JPennant: but trust me - Illya Kuryakin was HUGE
JPennant: Superstar huge
JPennant: I was actually jealous of anyone with a Man from U.N.C.L.E lunchbox
McClint: but where is he now? :-)
JPennant: He's playing a pathologist on NCIS. :-)
JPennant: Ok, remember the TV show "I Spy"?
McClint: yes. bill cosby
JPennant: That was a rip-off of Man from U.N.C.L.E
McClint: like Battlestar galactica was a Starwars ripoff
JPennant: Man from U.N.C.L.E was Star Wars big.
Eh, most of the world would draw a blank at "Battlestar Galactica".
Id buy the DVD's of NCIS in a heartbeat.
There were fools surfing the storm waves under the bridge, where on a *good* day the conditions are a nasty mix of rushing rip tides, cold water, swift currents, rocks, boat traffic and sharks.
Naturally, the surfers turned out to be Australian. Theyre here for the Mavericks surf contest.

Today's hororscope sez:
You need to escape. You need to get away. But where to? And for how long? According to the planets, you will spend a lot of time flicking through holiday brochures this week, but you will find it difficult to make up your mind. If you do book a vacation, there is a possibility you will almost immediately regret it, so take your time and don't rush into anything you are not 100 per cent sure of.
JPennant: The buses on Oahu run all day? :-)
mars: umm...until 12?
mars: start around 5?
mars: depends which routes
