Only In LA: My Day In Rolls Royces

I know what you’re thinking: Mama, you drove a Rolls? Maybe two? No, don’t be ridiculous. I’m not THAT pretentious. But the other day, I had a really weird experience, one that can only be told through the magnificent, multi-million dollar vehicles that I witnessed in a span of 4 hours. Only in LA you say?

Dude, Or Douchebag: Pickups Part II

As you may remember from Episode One of DODB Part One, I’m a pick up girl.  If you’re not, you’re simply not American and thus, a douchebag. So stop reading now. Now that we’ve weeded out the losers, let’s move on.  Let’s begin with the Dude: Lil’ Red Truck– in ’78 that was the fastest American car from 0 to 100mph.  Try saying that about your...
