1.7.12 welcome to sherman oaks! with (no) love, from the douches

LA, my hometown. nothing but love for you, especially for this glorious weather in January. “NOW HAVING SAID THAT” (see “Curb Your Enthusiasm” episode about how this phrase negates and contradicts everything you just said before it), sometimes the parody of a place is spot on. characters: a stringy, stuck-up LA/Hollywoody couple, BOTH with strawberry blonde hair and long limbs, who were oh-so-cold to micah while worshipping only THEIR li’l strawberry blonde offspring. giving him unwarranted stern looks, zero smiles when he played around their toddler, minding his own business. eerily quiet other than talking shit with their eyes. can’t stand it when people give each other KNOWING mean looks in front of others because hello, it ain’t your living room. i can see yo eyes. SO OBVIOUS when they gave each other looks about my mama because she was hyper and playing all goofy with her grandbaby, by rocking back and forth, completely engrossed in him, not caring about the haters. i wanted to push them so badly or shit in their diaper bag because DON’T NO ONE TALK MEAN ABOUT MY MAMA, even with YO EYES, douches! but i had to behave myself for the sake of chandler, riker, fiona, clarke, archie and all the other 2010 named babies. the whole scene was just gross, all of us with our trendily named babies, yuppy vibe in the air with everyone only into their own babies, not saying hullo. my dad found someone’s camera lens for them while they stared icily at micah and not even a “thank you.” very surprising because this is not the LA i know but a stereotype i’ve seen in sitcoms. i just notice way too much. wish i were more oblivious or just didn’t give a crap but i always do. now we will go enjoy the day some more despite the douchey morning.

  1. Don’t tell me you are becoming one of those stuck up, arrogant, pretentious, more important than thou new yorkers that hate on anythin la. Say it ain’t so jayhay, say it ain’t so….

  2. UYYYYYY! did you read this though? not about me becoming no ny’er! i didn’t mean no disrespect to my roots. i was just so surprised because i expect my hometown to be so down-to-earth and warm like the climate. instead i run into these limp assholes making fun of my mama love with they cold, passive-aggressive eye communication that makes me automatically clench my fists. so let it be known, you can be from nyc or pocatello or ehr-ray or vegas, i will hate you equally if you make fun of my mama. you will hear this all in person tomorrow anyhow – the booneeghee was twilight zone, with everyone together but not interacting at all with others’ babies! we not used to that as we all about baby love wherever we go!

  3. my friend had a similar playground experience w/meany playground mommies, but in her situation it was fobby moms giving the mean eye to her mixed (asian/hispanic) girl. like just giving her a dirty look when she would wave or say hi. needless to say, my friend wanted to slap uppity right off their faces, too.
