Im origionally from Riverside!

It may only be about 60 miles away from downtown LA... but it feels like 6,000.

So different. So lonely. So... er.... yeah.

awwws- I'm sure you'll meet people- it's LA. You can't live in LA and NOT meet people.

nahh-It's not that dangerous depending on what area you're in. And it sure beats a 2 hour drive from riverside- and that's without heavy traffic.

For a fun evening, get yourself down to the the IMAX theater for a good movie! Then go have some dinner at Guido's (awesome Italian) in Malibu. Their calamari and Ceasar salads were the BEST! (Didn't it used to be in Brentwood? - anyone?) (And what was the name of the place on PCH in Santa Monica or Malibu that served those GREAT buckets of clams? YUM!!!!)

I have heard of that place in malibu, but I can't think of the name. However there are some awesome japanese restuarants in the westwood district. Oh and across from 97.1 in korea town there's this fantastic korean place. Yummy=) But you have to be exotic- I had octopus soup:wink:

You call octopus soup exotic? What? It was still alive?

I call fish intestine soup or chicken feet/ pork feet/ cow stomach/ intestine/ pork belly, among other things I shall not name, exotic..


I once saw a show on television, in US, where teams of people have to compete against eachother in a foreign country and whoever reaches the end destination first, wins.

The were in Korea and had to finish a plate of octopus... preparation? Take an octopus (alive ofcourse), take a sharp butcher knife, cut the octopus in bite size pieces, serve with a dipping souce and bon appetite!

Although cut up into tiny pieces, it was still very much alive. The tentacles were crawling off the plate and the suction cups were still working, attaching themselves to the teeth and gums of the eaters..
