{GBF Life} Good, Bad, and Fab Moments of the Week

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

I went on an event binge last week as LA lured me in with offers of candy, ice cream, booze, and swag. I try to limit the number of events I attend as it's quite easy to get swept into the world of event hopping and lose sight of reality, goals, and the meaning of life. I've met people who are part of the "see and be seen" scene. They come to LA seeking fame and fortune. They work their way into the H-wood Venn diagram chumming up to people of importance and are thus treated like VIPs and party like VIPs. But they are only "in" by association, living off of borrowed fame. With no substantive achievements to call their own, they are stripped of all sense of identity once the famous friends stop calling and the invites stop coming. It's an LA tragedy that plays itself out like reruns of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

I guess that's why I write so much on my blog as I want to remember it for its substance. Right now, my blog is the friend that gets invited to cool places while I get to tag along for the ride. But when it fades into oblivion idly sitting in cyber junkyard, I want to make sure I'm still here.
