- The second trip to Los Angeles was fun, until my parents started getting on my nerves. I appreciate that mom and dad still care about me, but I'm still a 40 year old adult. If I do any more outings with them, I'm going to have to limit it to a day or two.

Other than the nagging, though, we did have a good trip. Over the course of the trip, we did the following: Reagan Library, parents met my brother's new girlfriend, Hollywood Walk of Fame (total tourist trap, as expected), watched the sunset at Dume Point, Thanksgiving dinner at a very nice restaurant in Malibu, LaBrea Tar Pits, Automotive museum, Black Friday shopping at a mall, Placa Olvera, dinner at a garlic-themed restaurant (The Stinking Rose), and hopped on the plane still smelling like garlic for the flight home.

Pics here, will leave the account public for a few more days before I lock it up: https://www.instagram.com/richaarde/

- On the flight there, someone in another seat was watching All The Way, starring Bryan Cranston as President Lyndon B Johnson. I was listening to music and kind of watching along from far away. It looked like a good film. I kind of want to see it now.

- Somewhere along the way, I picked up a case of bronchitis. I was coughing through most of the vacation. This morning, my doctor gave me some industrial-strength cough syrup and some antibiotics this afternoon. Blah.

- I am supposed to have a job interview tomorrow, but I'm really in rough shape. I should probably call them tomorrow morning and ask them to move the interview. It probably seems like poor form, but if I'm in bad enough shape to go to the doctor then I probably should stay home.

I'm spending probably 16 hours a day in bed, but it's working, so I'm not complaining.

The receptionist at the doctor's office told me my prescription (promethazine/codeine) would be worth about $100 on the street. I could mix it up into a drink called "purple drank." Um, thanks. Nice and professional, there.

They did reschedule the interview. I'm going on Thursday morning now.
