Last Night

Jane got to drive down Sunset Boulevard in car blasting KISS FM with all the windows down and the sunroof open. Then she and her friend got pizza and drank soda in Westwood. If you grew up in Los Angeles you’d understand what a milestone this is.

About the Go Daddy Elephant Hunt

Earlier today my friend Marsha Collier directed me to this video of Bob Parsons the GoDaddy CEO shooting and killing an elephant. To be very clear, I like meat.
