I Have Been Unproductive This Week

Click for a more detailed urban cityscape.

This is the view from my office. I have no idea why I have been hired to start this week, because there is very little work to be done until after Christmas. This has given me the opportunity to look out the window all day and observe human behavior.

Top 10 Things You Learn By Watching A Few Blocks Of Sunset Boulevard

10. There are really a lot of fucking palm trees here.

9. Two-thirds of people that enter Starbucks have black nerd glasses. Especially when I go.

8. No matter how much I ponder it, I will never figure out what that billboard with the Statue of Liberty is advertising.

7. It's probably not an accident that there is a free AIDS test clinic right next to a used clothing store called Out Of The Closet.

6. White is a very popular color for cars, which is stupid because they constantly look dirty.

5. I can now tell simply by appearance who will go into Rite Aid, who will go into Starbucks, and who will go into Denny's.

4. There are an awful lot of people driving around in the middle of the day who either don't have jobs or work as strippers at night.

3. 0.0001% of all squealing car alarms indicate that a crime is in progress. Unless being stupid is a crime, in which case that jumps to 99.9999%.

2. Either laptops have now become de rigeur for the homeless man on the go, or "vagrant chic" is the new bleeding edge of fashion.

1. I need binoculars.

I used to have meetings out at Disney and Warner Brothers and whenever I was there, it always went through my head that I'd never want to live there. Unless I was making at least $500,000 a year.

Also, what are your aspirations in the industry? A writer?

Binoculars with a camera, please.

White doesn't show dirt. Black does!

You know, this could easily be misconstrued as a racist comment.

Binoculars with Camera AND NIGHTVISION!

SouthernBelle said...

Haha, fantastic!
I love people-watching!

I can't believe you work so close to Denny's! You are totally living the dream, man.

Falwless doesn't know what she's talking about. I had a white Neon and that thing always looked dirty. However, for a cheap 4 cylinder car, that thing could MOVE, and I miss it dearly.
