On my second day in LA I caught up with
Greybird and his brother, Tim (first photo), who wined and dined me at
a delightful restaurant near Disneyland and took me for a ride in their
immaculate and soon-to-be restored Ford Galaxie.
The next day I braved the LA traffic (not recommended for one's first day driving on the wrong side of the road) and drove into Hollywood for the second stage of DariaCon LA, where I met the inimitable Madame Kara Wild, who put me up for the night in her Hollywood apartment. I admit that the sign on the side of her building (third photo) gave me cause for concern, but I soon learned that they put similar signs on ice cream, coffee, wine and just about anything. Cautious people those Californians, and always looking out for things that might harm us. :-)
We were soon joined by Chad and Michelle Klein-Haas and Michelle's main squeeze Richie.
Being hungry, and this being a Dariacon, did exeunt for a pizza. This was one of those moments where I cursed the fact that I'd left the camera back at Kara's, because this place made the biggest goddam pizza I've ever seen. We had one slice each, and none of us could finish - except for Chad who kindly polished off what the rest of us were unable to.
