Observations of a Los Angeles Newcomer (Pt. 2)

Playing Farkle by the pool. =)

Playing Farkle by the pool. =)

A few more things  I’m learning or observing here…

  1. If you put ice cubes in your glass of water and leave the room for a minute, they’ll probably be almost gone when you come back.
  2. In-N-Out is overrated, in our very humble opinions. But Chick-Fil-A does not disappoint!
  3. People don’t observe the “take turns” law at four-way stops. Fortunately I’m a natural-born aggressive driver, so it works out…ain’t nobody going on my turn! ;)
  4. There’s no foyer at church because apparently about 50/52 Sundays of the year, everyone can mingle and fellowship outside, with no thought of rain.
  5. The incredibly obnoxious bell that starts around 9:00 PM outside our complex and rings several times a minute for 10 minutes is not a fire alarm, it is, in fact, an ice cream truck.
  6. Even though it’s in the 90’s outside, you’d better be prepared to have a sweater for indoor events. Our church feels like it’s 40 degrees during the services. Scratch the sweater, I needed a parka last weekend! I worshiped with goosebumps all morning. Maybe I just came off super moved by the sermon.
  7. There’s really no point in checking the weather forecast. You can pretty much bet it will say “Sunny”. Or if it’s over 95 degrees, it will simply say, “Hot” with a scary picture of really orange sun.

Yep, this is not Bellingham…that’s for sure.
