2. Read Irving, Amy Wallace's, and David Wallechinsky's "The Book of Lists".
I strive to be a list-writer. Effective people write lists.Have you seen Flipping Out--the Bravo show about the allegedly OCD home flipper in Los Angeles? It's oddly compelling but also kind of boring at the same time. Anyway, he generates a 1-2 page to-do list every day for his personal assistants to execute. Rake the leaves. Walk the dog. Gas the car. The to-do list appears on every show and becomes an important tool for illustrating the OCD. So, there's a fine line. But if you're going to be insane, might as well be effective at the same time. Drudge is basically a list-writer. There's a connection.
2. Find another blogger born in the 19th century because the world's oldest blogger has died.
OLIVE! Oh no. :(RIP.(Thanks MadMan)
2. Cross "1." off list. List-loving people hate to read un-updated lists.
Make a list of what you'd like to see and do in LA. (I remember my mother's always making lists of what we should take on our week-long summer vacations.)
Sorry to say, Anne, but your list is listless.
There's that spelling tick again.Actually, upon further and a more truthful reflection, it's the lazy tick that got me this time.I guess I assumed that a personality like Ann would have been named Anne, and I was too lazy to click and confirm.And no disrespect, but it really SHOULD be Anne Althouse, don’t you think?But then I've always thought Anne was the more free-spirited version of Ann.
1. Write more lists. People love to read lists.2. ...3. Profit!
Wikipedia has a list of songs about Los Angeles, here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_songs_about_Los_Angeles
Int'resting. I wonder what makes the cut. This one didn't:I am a full-fledged, grown up adultI'm tryin' to make a dentTryin' to get a resultI'm holed up in a Hollywood Hotel suiteTequila to drink and avocado to eatNever thought I'd see so many TV starsNever thought I'd see so many rented carsNever thought I'd see so many desperate eyesAnd I never thought I'd hear so many bold-faced lies"Hollywood Hopeful", LW3
