SATURDAY 20th SEPTEMBER : BACK FIRE


Andrew finally showed up and, together with Paul, we spent the afternoon on the beach at Santa Monica. We found a British Bar (Ye Olde Kings Head) in the town centre. Ahhh - how refreshing to experience good old British hospitality from the bar staff. Repeating what he thought was my drinks order, the barman sneered at me as if I was an arsehole when I corrected him. I dunno - there's three of us and he thinks he's got to pour four and a half pints and thinks I'm a twat when I correct him. Take me back to cheery loud American bar staff - I'm sorry I transgressed!

Andrew wore a white 'Rogan' T shirt with a smoking pistol coloured with the stars and stripes when we went to see play pool. He got about a dozen comments from people who liked it. Realised later that maybe they liked it for alternative reasons. The cashier at the Pool Hall loved it because it summed up gun culture and the Bowling for Columbine film. The guy outside 'Daddy's Bar' at 2am liked it because he was a gun owner and he was proud of an Americans right to bare arms. We didn't argue - we were desperate to find a place to drink late. No luck - LA closes down at 2am. Probably best thing after Friday night's activities.
