this is how LA is different

Today I took the kids to a pool party thrown by a parent of a boy in Ollie's first grade class. First of all, it was one of the first houses that I've seen since I've been here that I was actually... envious of. It was situated around this slate courtyard that had a beatiful pool. It was wide open with lots of windows and wood floors and beams. And then... the view. The ocean was just spread out 360 degrees, it was really impressive. Now actually you could see our house from this house, which was kind of funny too. And I'm not ungrateful, our house and our view is incredible as well. This one was just a slight level up in terms of impressiveness.

Anyway, here I am at a this party, just a gathering of parents of their kids to kick off the new school year, and I end up in an interesting conversation with a movie producer... about my scripts. The talk went well enough that she emailed me and we're going to schedule a coffee to talk more.

And that's why LA just kind of rocks.

" And then... the view. The ocean was just spread out 360 degrees...." So was this house on a small island?

LOL, oh come on, what's the difference between 360 and 180 degrees?

The view from our back porch will leave an impression too. Not a good one, unfortunately.
