Everything I Need To Know About LA I Learned From Sarah Morrison

Some new things I have learned while being poor, lonely, and mildly adorable in LA:

Cigarettes can be used in exchange for giving bums money. This works out if you are like me and are not really a big smoker but somehow always have a cigarette and no money on you.

Paper clips = bobby pins. I ran out of things to hold my hair up with this morning (bobby pins, clips, pencils) so I bent a paper clip. Voila! Insta-bobby pin.

Don't wear long jackets. Someone asked me how much I was charging when I did.

Corn is just as good a meal as it is a side dish. Sometimes I eat it right out of the can. Sprinkle on some salt and pep and you have dinner for .65!

Dig up your VCR. Movies on tape are like .99 nowadays.

Valley girls really do exist. Enough said.

Have nice hair. It's the only thing you'll ever get complimented on.

The end.

Oh, and be a good blogger. Not like me, who wastes posts with silly comics and useless observations. Just a little longer until my bf ships me my old White Rice drafts, and then things will get really neat! Promise!

And make sure to keep it sexy.

Deuces,
Erika

So true. Even across the country. I was smoking with my friend and this bum asks me for a cig. Packs are like 10 dollars these days. If you're homeless give up the habit.

I love the long jacket one. However one time I did show up at a bfs with a long jacket, heels and lingerie on. I sort of felt hookerish but sometimes it feels good to feel sleazy-easy.

thanks for the congrats on my 200posts (:

I always wanted to do that! I never had the balls to/money to buy sexy lingerie when I was living in the same city as my bf, but I'm thinking since he's going to visit me in March, I'll show up to the airport to pick him up in said getup.
