phantagrae Posted August 8, 2015 Posted August 8, 2015 Nope, the US Air Force. Well, since I was on a RAF base, yeah I guess there was a connection there. Interestingly, there are no 24 hour department stores in Pasadena or Glendale. However, depending on where in Glendale you have her living, there is one in Altadena, just north of Pasadena, easily accessible off the 210 (Glendale is West and Northwest of Pasadena). She could then take either the Lake Ave or Hill Ave exits of the 210. Hill ave is the Eastern Boundary of Cal Tech, Lake is near enough to the Western boundary of Cal Tech. I don't know that that amount of detail or realism is necessary since we're not talking about real life. Just as you wouldn't have to specify whether she went to Walmart or some other 24-hr department store or whatever, you wouldn't have to specify whether or not there's really a store in her area or not, or which route would work for her getting to CalTech or whatever.i just don't think that certain kinds of details are that important unless they actually figure in the story. Otherwise it can become just so much pedantic clutter. Being a pedant myself, I know whereof I speak! Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
