got to love LA

Mark and I went to see "Kingdom of Heaven" tonight. An awesome movie that's definitely worth the $10 to see in theatre. Maybe with the exception of the theatre that we went to, which was a small theatre in Marina del Rey that might as well be America's only upward sloping theatre. Sitting down felt very similar to strapping yourself into one of those new age rollercoaster rides. Plus, the screen was probably five times the size of our TV and we were seated next to people who started cheering when the trailers were being played. All 18 minutes of them.

On a different note, I am really starting to understand how to make the most out of Los Angeles. It's taken almost two years, which is an astounding time to begin with. But now I am actually starting to really appreciate some of the things that this city has to offer. Like the great weather and astounding diversity of its people. Like the smog-ridden red sunsets. The way it smells after the rain. Mostly, it's because of the few very good friends that I have made during my time. In the end, it's always about the people. There are great people everywhere you go and I am fortunate to have some of them here as my friends.
