Ahhh, Los Angeles.... It's the city of The Angels, alright!

But in Heaven or Hell?                                

Who can say?

Well, let's see....

I know that each of these fine establishments I care to share with you all make me do one (or more) of the following:

Smile, Spend, Dance, Laugh, Thrust my Bosom Forward, Giggle, Blush <I know, I didn't think that was possible>, Rub my Tummy, Ponder, Muse, Feel all Inspired, Become Aroused...

Need I Say More?

So, again, Heaven or Hell?

I have no definitive answer, but I DO know that L.A. hurts me sooo gooood. ;)
