Skinny bitches

LA is full of them.

Before I actually went to LA, I thought it must be an exaggeration, perpetuated by the fact that a huge chunk of the film/TV industry lives there.

Nuh-uh! The city is somewhat ironically crowded with skinny people. They may not take up much space, but the aura that screams ‘wannabe actress’ (coupled with the carry-all tote bag and enormous takeaway latte) sure as hell does.

It’s difficult to sympathise with someone who looks so hungry when they look at you with such obvious disdain. How DARE I drink my latte with 2% milk instead of nonfat?! And what is that next to it…a FOOD ITEM?! Oh, the shame!

Seriously though, LA has no soul. It, like so many of the people living there, has spread itself so thinly over such a wide area, been willing to take anything that’s thrown at it, that it’s difficult to come across any real culture or sense of purpose. Actually, that last part isn’t entirely true. Plenty of places in LA have purpose. Whoring themselves out to the film industry, namely.

If you subscribe to the belief that vapid narcissism and eating disorders cultivate an admirable population, then LA may just be the city for you.

Ah Chloe I love your description…I feel the same way about the place and try to avoid it, although the airport seems to be a neccessary part of travel from Aus to the US. Unfortunately, because I’d really rather not see the airport either. San Fran is Heaven compared to LA 🙂 xx

Oh I know! San Fran is what I imagine LA is supposed to be like. Except it completely overshot the mark (by a LOT) and ended up like some smoggish hellhole. Sorry Frankie. Lol.
