I stayed at the Mondrian hotel when I was working in Los Angeles. It's a very groovy place if you know what I mean. There was a lot of construction going on at the time. It was kind of like that tv commercial where every time the guy tries to talk to his wife you hear drilling instead. The first two days my room key didn't work so I would have to get security to take me each time. The room looked like Liberace decorated it. I love Liberace as much as anyone but I don't want to live in his house. The saving grace to the hotel is the pool and Skybar. When I first went to the pool it is quite a scene. Hot models in bikinis and high heels. Everyone had on sunglasses except me. Perfect tans and bodies. Very intimidating. I sat down took out my little drawing tools and started to draw and paint. For some reason it caused a commotion. People flocked to me and wanted to see what I was doing. they were blown away by my work. By the first afternoon, I knew every waitress, pool boy and hot model. The second day a few co-workers came to the pool to see me surrounded. They couldn't understand what was going on. Hot girls would come by and say hello. Some even said they went to my website and knew all of my work. If I got to the pool late in the afternoon and there was no lounge chairs available, the pool boys, Vito or Chad said to me it was no problem. They were saving a special spot for me. Rappers came by to high five me, hot girls hovered around and my co-workers stared in disbelief. Like I said, I had a good time in Los Angeles this time. My boos asked if he could borrow my drawing books and paints. I said no problem but I'm not sure it would be the same. I also have to give a shout out to Brittney, Lea and Bianca.
