This place ain't Fuquay-Varina

I love LA. I love the fact that so many people from so many different places all converge on this place for one reason, and that people you'd never have met anywhere else can become an integral part of your life here.

For three years I lived in a town called Fuquay where I knew approximately no people. I spent all my nights in watching TV and wishing that at the very least there was a neighbor I could share Angel episodes with. But people in Fuquay didn't watch Angel so much, and the closest thing I ever got to striking up a friendship with anybody was when the owner of the antique store downstairs tried to get me to come to his church.

But here it's different. A guy I used to date back in North Carolina like five years ago lives here. I went and hung out at his house and met some great people last weekend. A guy I only knew a little in high school lives here, and last night he came over and we had a few dinks and talked about the past and the present. Tonight I'm going to an Ibiza party in Santa Monica hosted by a girl from work.

In North Carolina, I never would have been out with this many different groups of people in such a short span of time, and from so many different backgrounds. It's good fodder for scripts. Unfortunately, it's also a big time killer when I should be home writing them.

So on that note, I have to finish my Supernatural script now in time to get dressed up in all my white clothes. I'm hoping to have the script finished in time for Disney, which is next week. It's gonna be close.
