08:27 am As my spouse was unavailable to join us, mr_curmudgeon and I went out and had a terrific Thai dinner in Claremont and then drove to Glendale. The gentleman had never experienced karaoke previously, and so I introduced him to Ground Control; every Monday alternative karaoke. It's in a pretty cool bar called The Complex on Colorado Boulevard. I didn't go up to the mike, and neither did he, but we cheered on other friends who did. Many were excellent, which added to the entertainment factor. All-in-all, a nice way to finish up his visit to LA.
