Need a Pick-up to LAX?
December 23rd, 2007 → Leave a comment
Only in LA.
My flight to San Francisco tomorrow is at 6:30am (yay for picking the cheapest flight on Orbitz!) and none of my friends are up to taking me to LAX despite my 5AM breakfast bribes, etc.
Parking is too expensive. Taxi is too expensive. I could pay it, but out of principle I refuse to give in.
And even the shuttle services are overbooked on this holiday weekend.
Then I started going up and down my Instant Messenger list seeing who would take me to the airport at the crack of dawn for food or gas money.
And I found a taker….
SPOON! Yes, ex-reality contestant from VH1′s “the Pick Up Artist,” who is now in LA, is coming over to take me to the airport.
I’ve never actually met the guy in person. But it should be fine. How dangerous could it be to get a ride from a failed pick up artist who is Chinese and from Portland and was on a reality show? And isn’t it appropriately LA to get airport rides from ex-Reality TV stars? Isn’t this one of those odd LA experiences that I should have just to put in my “LA files?”
I know that if anyone I ever dated is reading this now, they are laughing at me. But they will bite their tongues when the secrets to the VH1 reality TV world are revealed during my 4am airport ride.
Hollywood insider that I am!
Now, if you don’t hear from me in a few days, it means the guy from Reality TV kidnapped me.
Will return (alive, hopefully) with a full report.
