The greatest part of living in LA and being stuck here for the holidays is that the traffic is pretty damn decent. Since there are so few people that are actually from here there is a mass exodus every year around this time to parts unknown by the homesick. Those of us that are just too stubborn or broke to leave enjoy empty streets and short lines at the Chinese take-out. It’s truly almost worth not going home to be able to not get stuck on Hollywood Blvd. for hours on end just trying to drive 2 miles to see your friends. So how many LA folks are actually staying here for the holidays? I’ll count myself as vote number one. I just got back here. Not in the mood to brave the high terror alert and LAX for the folks this time around. Especially since the hijackers like coast to coast flights and that’s what I’d be on.
