luff and stuff

things i miss about southern california:


  1. the weather!!!
  2. getting out of the car at 1:30 in the morning and having it be 73 degrees (shutup boyfriend) i long for those comfortable warm evenings that rarely exist up here
  3. my sister
  4. my niece
  5. my nephew
  6. good friends
  7. working for disney
  8. my silver pass
  9. disneyland & espn zone
  10. blake's friends
  11. the weather
  12. the fact that it's actually warm there
  13. did i mention the weather?
  14. real baseball for blake
  15. people in dodger hats, shirts, etc.. i can never get used to all the giants stuff i see on people up here. *pukes a little*
  16. the fact that my once small little town is now becoming a fully self sufficient city. no longer do you have to leave the city to go shopping, or to a nice dinner. it's all here.. and it rocks!
  17. the radio stations. they exist to further prove how sucky the ones up here are. i think i heard more new songs by artists in 10 minutes, than i have since i moved up here.

things i don't miss:

  1. THE WIND!!!! i loathe the wind.
  2. my commute to/from disney everyday
  3. the fact that they are building on every available hill and piece of land in my once small city
  4. the department i worked in at disney- boring.beyond.belief.

Interesting list. I can't believe you didn't include anything about the weather.

Ha!!!!

I had the pleasure of visiting southern California on two occasions - and I loved it. The simple fact that you could open the windows at night at not have to use the air conditioning was great.

I didn't like the traffic, though. Sheesh!! At 10:30 at night, the traffic on the interstate was worse than rush hour here!

Honest to God you are never going to be happy with baseball up here, are you? Even when he is playing Babe Ruth, shit he could be playing for the San Francisco Giants and it still wouldn't be REAL BASEBALL because it was in Northern California!!!! How many times do you actually get out of a car at 1:30 a.m.?!?!?! Truly, do tell. You're absolutely right, Blake has no friends up here. I have someone who will take the stand to dispute that fact. Short of missing your family, I think it is pretty good up here. But then again, like I said, I guess I understand as I would NEVER want to live in Southern California and that is just because I would NEVER want to live there. So I guess we all have our preferences.

it is a bit too chilly up there where you live for me! LA weather is much more for me hence why i live down south!

Becky said...

and yes the radio up there was TERRIBLE!

kathleen-
i didn't say blake had no friends. i simply said i missed his friend jacob from so cal. i do. he's a great kid and i love his parents.
baseball is just different. i don't expect you to understand, and that's okay.
my point about it being warm at 1:30 in the morning, was that it was WARM at night. i miss having warm, comfortable, not cold evenings.. i could have made the same point talking about getting out of the car at 9pm, but we literally did get out of the car at 1:30am, hence the time i wrote in the post.
i think it's good up here too- but you don't know where i'm from in southern california so i also don't expect you to be able to relate to what i'm saying. it's my hometown. born and raised. i love it there. just like you love it here. it's the same thing. i'm sure you'd hate it down there if you had to live there.

How about the traffic? Surely Northern CA is not as bad as LA - is it?!

Lord, Eva HATES the wind as well and pitches just all sorts of fits when it blows...

You know I was just giving you shit...right???? I respect your opinions.

alison said...

So come back!!!! I can't believe I don't have a bridal shower picture....boohoo. That sucks.

My brother and Dianne bought one of them nice houses they built up on every hill and free surface. Heehee.

creative-type dad said...

Ah yeah, gotta love the silver pass.

Catherine said...

Ugh. Wind. Isn't it one of the crappiest things ever invented?!

Allie said...

OMG i feel you i miss so cal like crazy sometimes.. Austin radio out here is the worst

I have to admit the weather there was lovely, no matter what time of year I visited. I remember spending the day at Six Flags in January - unbelievable.

RWA said...

Is KROQ still on the air in Los Angeles? That was (at the time) one of, if not the best, radio station in the country - in my humble opinion.

jennster said...

YES! kroq is still around and is still THE BEST RADIO STATION.. i don't know why it rocks so hardcore, it just does. :)

Kim said...

Well since you made a list, and the good list is bigger than the bad list, doesn't that mean that you have to come back???

Anonymous said...

kroq was at it's best in 1981, when oingo biongo and the go gos were on it..ah yes the good old days..but I'm old now so I am glad I have satellite radio because I hate everything on the radio and satellite has tons of stuff for my old ass to listen to and no FUCKING comercials, I also shaved my balls...brother jim

RWA said...

I just remember that KROQ played songs unedited (they didn't "bleep out" parts like they do around here).
