There are snowflakes on the school windows here. I wonder if the kids think real snowflakes are that big and that you can really see the shapes as they fall.
There is a very big difference between 65 and 70. I can now tell the difference and I need a different coat for each degree and a half.
The average surfer spends 95% of his time waiting for that perfect wave and then falling off of it in seconds. I spend 95% of my time on the beach watching them. Why are all wet suits black? It must have something to do with not attracting sharks and other predatory fish.
Two lanes turning left or right off a twisting road is insane. The drivers here are more anxious to beep their horns than anywhere except NYC.
I never adjusted to it being warm and dark. Warm means the sun should be out until nine not five.
It would be hard to find an unorganic food here.
People here are a lot happier than in Michigan. Sad but true.
Skateboarders are annoying anywhere but more skilled here.
You know you've been in California too long when you see Chris Matthews on TV and wonder why the hell he is wearing a wool jacket.
After a while, nothing seems more important than sitting on the beach. How do these people ever get anything done?
This amazes me most. I am from the north but sitting on the beach here at 65 degrees I always needed a jacket. The natives frolicked in bikinis, never seeming to be cold. Explain that.
You do feel out of the loop here when things like the Grammys are over before they begin here. The US is set to EST with NY and DC being on the east coast.
Back home tonight!
