Sarah and I are big of the show Clean House. (Sarah being the #1 Super Fan). If you’ve never seen the show, it’s about a group of kooky style people who go into really cluttered houses, clean ‘em out, sell the stuff at a yard sale and then redo the house to be all organized. Sarah found out that one of the yard sales was going to be near us, so we got Sarah’s mom and we all went! It was a singularly unique mix of a live TV show and a very real yardsale going on at the same time. So we picked up some crap, haggled for it, all while being filmed. It was actually pretty fun. Reality TV baby! Who knows if they’ll use the footage of us when the show airs. I mean I’m sure they’ll use *me*. I hope to parlay my appearance into my own show. I just need a really solid agent.
This pic is one of the stars of the show, the interior designer Mark Brunetz.

From the LA Crime Blog’s map of crime in the Valley:
A victim was on a bus when she observed suspect-1 exit the bus and remove her bicycle from the bus bike rack. As the suspect rode off slowly on her bicycle, the victim chased the suspect and applied the brakes on the bicycle, causing the suspect to fall. The victim wrestled the suspect for control of the bicycle and managed to get away as she rode back towards Ventura Boulevard. Suspects 2-7 threw small rocks in her direction. One rock struck the victim on the back of her head but did not cause any injuries. Victim was able to get on another bus to call the police.
Database – LA Daily News
Suspects 2-7??? So she was up against some serious odds, but she scrapped and got her bike back. And, seven people banding together to steal a used bike? Were they going to ride-share it? Punks in a pack. Glad she prevailed. Wonder if she’ll keep riding the bus?
Aside from that, other highlights included somebody packing heat at McDonalds, two dudes apprehended on the roof while trying to steal an air-conditioner, a few random gang beatings against “outsiders,” and a guy bringing a rifle to shoot his ex a church carnival. Ladies and gentleman, the human race!
