Who strategizes your parking rules? Tywin Lannister? Whoever it is deserves some kind of genius award because they foil me every single time, not that it's hard because I also have other brain disorders like thinking I'm only going to need 60 minutes at the hair salon and believing no one would have the heart to fine me for crossing half a fingernail into a red zone.

"Mansionization" is the name given to the increasingly common practice of tearing down a smaller house and building a much larger, more expensive one on the same lot, often to the detriment of next-door neighbors who suddenly find themselves deprived of sun, views, and privacy by the new mansion now looming over them.

Alcohol Companies at L.A. Pride Leave a Bitter Taste

Daniel Kort

Perhaps when police brutality ends, when trans murders stop, and when alcoholism is no longer a problem plaguing our community, it'll be time to have a party. For now, I won't be supporting alcohol companies' unethical attempt to take advantage of me or my community. Cheers.

I opened my mouth to confirm, and then shut it wordlessly, my hands nervously twitching over the heap of gear we were packing away. Pants. Where were my pants? Unbelievable. I was climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in less than 12 hours, and had forgotten my pants in Los Angeles.
