We talked about Lisa's Walk LA With Me project back at its launch...and then promptly forgot about it. It's hard keeping all this cool LA stuff straight. Well, she's still walking and we remembered and decided to check out her video blog today. Come to find out that she was in our neck of the woods,Sherman Oaks, this week and spent a long time talking with a guy named Courtney who she meets at a cigar shop.

The two discuss her "lonely face", why black women won't date him and growing up black and upper middle class in LA all while he flirts shamelessly with her. It's all quite fascinating and now we're going to spend the rest of the afternoon watching the back log of videos.

She's most recently been in Bel Air, Beverly Hills and at The Grove but really the story is all about the people she meets. We especially like Al.
