02/11/2003 Entry: "Oh the horror"

Chinatown LA Metro stop

So, the power is back on and the really cool serv-o-mail truck is gone, but the Lincoln Heights post office is still closed at 1:15ish. My alternatives are not to mail these copies of "What Liberal Media?" or drive to another PO. They're all about equidistant; so the deciding factor is what kind of food can I get near the one I choose.

So, in the rain, I'm driving down North Broadway, over the train bridge and past the former Women's Building, where it turns into Alameda and past the old train yards, where I once saw the Ringling Bros and whatever circus unloading (yes, I am that old). I get to College and Alameda and there's no way I could not possibly see the set straight out of "Farewell My Concubine" that will be the Chinatown Metro stop. I nearly had an accident looking at it (if anyone has a link to a picture I'd be much obliged, but, really, it looks like a ride queue from some stylized Chinese deco theme park whose mother was frightened by Walt Disney in the Paris Des Artistes Metro station). It's either quaint or embarrassing or both. All it will need are New Year's dragons coasting along side the train from the Courthouse. Is there a Courthouse stop or would that be too, I dunno, urban and normal?

Hey, I'm not blaming anybody that I choose to live in this city. Being able to talk about it is one of the perks, y'know?

And why can't an innocent woman get a double dip lamb sandwich when she asks for one at Philippe's anymore? I love their food, I guess I must speak LOUDER when I ORDER to get what I WANT.
