Dude! Where's my $120 Led Zepplin t-shirt?

Okay, I just realized I brought 8 pairs of shoes.

But in two days I've already worn 4, so it seems justifiable?!?

Last night at Opaline for dinner (excellent!) I overheard a group of hipster dudes talking about the "f#%! kick-ass" vintage rock t-shirts they had "scored" and were adding to their "mother-f@&*! huge" collection. They were swapping phone numbersof the guys who had the best ones and bragging about certain choice shirts.

It's great to be in L.A. where I can feel downright modest about bringing 8 pairs of shoes for 4 nights.

A ruff wake-up call

Another trip, another chance to overpack
