Yesterday we noticed that it's expensive to go to a 4-year university. But LA City College (LACC) offers lots of short-term courses for less than $100 bucks. And they look like fun:

Women's car care - chicks learn how to check fluids and tires and about the most common car-repair scams. One Sunday, $46.50 including equipment.

Beginning Spanish for everyone - just living in LA we pick up some Spanish, but wouldn't it be cool to put together a whole sentence? 5 Saturdays, $80.

Basic bartending - the class for you if studying languages drives you to drink. Learn about stocking a bar and practice mixing drinks. No actual booze will be used during class, tho. 2 Wednesdays, $60 including materials.

Horseback riding - at the Equestrian Center in Griffith Park, learn to groom, saddle and ride in classes of just 8 students. Riding boots required, nobody over 195 lbs allowed. 6 Monday evenings, $125.

Sushi making - yum! Students bring their own bowls, knife and cutting board, and get to eat their creations once class is over. One Thursday, $50 including sushi materials.
