LA river laundry day

you know you're total spoiled first worlder when your washing machine breaks. a friend suggested i do it 'old school' style and take the laundry down to the LA river because she claims she has seen it done before. pants on fire!

i waited for my blue hamper to fill, my blue ikea bag, my 99 cents purple bag to finally give in and go down to the laundromat. i know millions of people do this and i've spent many hours at them but once you find an apartment with washer/dryer hook ups life changes. but how does one spend 30 dollars to wash clothes? watch how it's done.

taking a 20 dollar bill to the local laundromat proved a roadblock. the change machine only accepts singles and fives. i walk out to the hugos tacos and buy the cheapest snack. 2 pastelitos de manzana and coffee. i take up 4 of the machines that say 'triple load' speed queens and realize that's a lot of funk. waiting for clothes to wash is no fun. so i go next door to video czar and open an account. i make it a zooey daschanel double feature (yes man, gigantic) for later and wait for dryer. then i realize that i'm hungry and not about to go home to make dinner so i order up some chicken wraps from sepan chicken. spoiled to the millionth.
