After reading this post from the LATimes blog on the fire on Catalina Island, a coworker said, “This is why Northeasterners, like myself, look down our noses at Californians.”
I don’t understand why he said that. Spicoli here doesn’t even mention his ferret.
Josh Olsen, 23, a fourth-generation Avalon resident with bleached, spiked hair, had his work cut out for him this morning lugging back home “the important stuff I saved last night: two skateboards and three guitars including a vintage ’70s Rickenbacker, once owned by Warren Zevon,” a rock musician and songwriter who was known for his dark and sometimes humorous songs.
Still missing was his albino corn snake “which I think is loose in the house somewhere.” Looking back, he shook his head and said, “It was kind of a trip, man. Awesome.”
