Looks Kinda Grim

From the smoggy sunset you can tell that I'm still in Los Angeles. In fact, We're staying dnowntown in an area known as Koreatown for the next several days. Even when I lived in Southern California, I rarely ventured into the downtown area and wasn't even aware of Koreatown. This evening we had dinner at the food court in the FIGat7th shopping mall. I had the "Happy Hour Special" which was a cold, spicy soba (buckwheat noodles) with a side of tempura. Very tasty though they put the tempura in a to-go container so it started to get soggy just on the couple minute walk to a table.

After dinner, Bridget went to see the new Star Wars movie with her son and his girlfriend at the El Capitan theatre in Hollywood. A ritzy place with assigned seating and was complete with prop and costume displays (so I'm told). I'll just wait until it comes out on "video". I've been up since 5 am and didn't feel like staying up all night just to see a movie. I'm starting to sound like a cranky old guy.

PBC #17 is just another ride starting from Ballaine Lake. This has been one of my normal starting spots for the videos since, being a lake, it is in a low spot and probably a bit colder. The pre-dawn skies are wonderful and this could be called a typical Fairbanks winter day.


PBC #18 was a search around the perimeter of town for the temperatures being reported on the weather apps. I never did find it though maybe I wasn't paying attention.

I believe the crankiness is due to lack of riding....that's my diagnosis. :)

You aren't cranky.

I saw the original 3 Star Wars movies and have no urge to see any of the others. I think I am more sick of Star Wars advertising on TV that I am Christmas commercials. Now who seems cranky? :-)

Then it would have started a while back. They had to buy the tickets quite a while ago. I believe that her son was in line as soon as the tickets were going to be available.

And anyone who drives anywhere around here will end up cranky...

I think all of the rain might be making you cranky. Especially if you add all of the TV advertising. Maybe time to tow the bikes south for a while.

Am I the only living person who has never seen any Star Wars movies?

Maybe, I can't believe the hype around that movie...
