    I have built tall piles of sand that somehow never actually formed into anything remotely resembling a castle.

    I haven't had a celebrity sighting for a while, even though I live in a neighborhood where many reportedly reside. Maybe I am just not up on who all the new celebs are, so I saw them and didn't know I was seeing them. Last one was Snoop Dogg at Target down in Diamond Bar. I can't count seeing them at places where they are supposed to be (for instance, if one went to observe a red carpet event, it would be cheating to call it a "celebrity sighting.) I rode up alone in the elevator with Howard Dean at the last NN, which might fit that category. In the past I have seen Richard Dreyfuss, Harlan Ellison, the lady who stars in that show Cold Case, the black actress who was briefly on the original Melrose Place, Billy from Melrose Place, Billy Idol, the host of Beat the Geek (anyone remember that?), Divine having a late breakfast at Ben Franks...and I know I'm forgetting tons...oh yeah, Sean Connery at Taylor's Steak House... Andrew McCarthy at the Frolic Room... and the ones people brought to the frequent BBQs at the apartment I shared with a party girl in Silver Lake - El Vez, Ron Jeremy, Andrea True...Charlie from U.K. Subs...Lawrence Fishburne, but that was a different party house...

    The minimum wage for servers subject has been discussed a lot lately. There are some restaurants that have started paying a real living wage plus benefits, and apparently it improves service and certainly improves server morale. Tipping, I learned, is often doled out by the race and sex and attractiveness of the server, so it is often unfairly applied. At least here in Cali our servers get the State minimum wage that everyone else gets, instead of the ridiculous ones in other states. I was so shocked when I learned about that.

    I have never been skilled in the operation of a hula hoop. The fact that I never had my own to practice with is my excuse.

    Nowadays, sleeping in is 6:30-7:00 AM. In my wild younger days, it was 2:00 PM. In my wild younger days, I was also able to stay up a couple of days without sleeping. No way could I do that now. Since my unemployment I stay up till around midnight. Before that I'd be in bed by 9:30-10:30, but I got up really early.
