Petshark: Talking Stick
Entries with the tag: california
I’m not really going to talk about that Ducks @ Sharks game. It does not merit the effort. I pity the souls who were obliged to do it. As I tweeted last night, the time I spent watching that game would have been better spent gouging my eyes out with a plastic fork. So I’ll tell you about driving from the Bay Area to Los Angeles instead.
You need to drive California to get a sense of it. Flying over it will not do and often takes as long. I don’t know how the first Euro-Californians could even conceive of California as a single geographical unit. There are states back East and countries in Europe that could fit on a cattle ranch in California. I think General Vallejo, when he designated his Northern California ranch, he must have said “I do not want to be able to find the boundaries of my land. If I can find the end of it, it is too small.”
