Second, there's the matter of personal interests. I've noticed that runners like to talk about their sport: routes, distances, times, goals. This is unsurprisingly. Even in such a solitary sport, surely some need for connection or acknowledgment is likely to occur. But my eyes generally role back in my head when my husband wants to go over his runs in excruciating detail. (Conversely, I'm sure he find my running anecdotes fascinating. "And then, I smelled BBQ smoke!")
I'm coming the long way 'round on this one but am almost to my point. It's Hollywood, you see.
Lots of our movies and television shows are made (developed, produced, filmed, set, whatever) in southern California. And it's true that a lot of people live in L.A. I don't. In fact, over 280,000,000 Americans don't even live in SoCal! (And that's not getting into the rest of the world similarly consuming our programming.) I'm sure that there are quite a few Los Anglophiles out here in the wilds.
But maybe some of the rest are like me: not particularly interested in your city. There, I said it. I have nothing much against L.A., I'm just tired of seeing it all the time on so many different TV shows and movies. So, now: Law & Order - Los Angeles? Really? Sigh.
