I am in LA one or more days a week.
I am not the jealous or envious type (so if that is going to bother you you should probably move on), and I make a point to never complain. I have a good feel for what is bullshit and what is not and I try (sometimes unsuccessfully) not to be impressed by the former. I think most things fall into the BS category but I will be a good sport and play along.
I like this Susan Sontag quote: 'I don’t care about someone being intelligent; any situation between people, when they are really human with each other, produces “intelligence.”'
