Yes, I left my wallet in El Segundo.

Yup, another big day. Finally made good on my six-year-old promise to part ways with my beyond-ratty, ridiculously huge ten-year-old George Costanza wallet by leaving it in a town named El Segundo.

Now I know how Q-Tip felt.

(Now's the time to download "I left my wallet in El Segundo" by A Tribe Called Quest if you're lost...)

Will it come back? -- only time will tell. I bet ol' Q-Tip can't say "I left THIS wallet in El Segundo", which is of course my current dream. But I guess he's kinda got all those rap-earned millions, fame, notoriety and that being named after something you stick in your ear thing going for him, so he could probably care less than I could ever imagine.

I also left my wallet in El Segundo, the town was just outside of L.A., is this the same El Segundo as you left your wallet in? My "left my wallet" website went down several years ago, no one returned my wallet even though I left instructions on how to return it inside the wallet. Maybe it is time to rejuvenate this project, try again.

Just heard you on KROQ. I grew up on the other side of LAX from Smell Segundo. Too bad about your wallet, but did you know Frank Zappa sang about untold destruction there?

Pretty cool, I hope it gets back to you !! Also you are my hero ! I am tryign to get funding for my boyfriend's movie and started a barter site of my own. Started with a white wooden night stand and called it One Night Stand (got some questionable offers guess I should have rethought the name).
