Las Vegas does not do rain well
February 28, 2003: Hey, it's the end of the shortest
month. Isn't that special? Well, it seems like the rains have finally
let up outside, considering it's been raining here almost the entire week.
I've been told this is very rare for Vegas to get rain like it is, and
it is very obvious, especially with the drivers. Oy. Anyways, it's finally
the weekend and I am very happy about that. Survivor was great, Buffy
was great (although I'm bummed this is the last season), and I am ready
I got my Outback
February 24, 2003: And it was gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood.
And 2 of those big ol' Fosters beahs. Yes, life can be oh so good, and
oh so fattening. Ah well, it was good. In other news, I just finished
watching all of Angel Season One on DVD, and I just gotta say, that's
a great show. It complements Buffy very well and the first season had
Faith in it, which just rocked! Gotta wait till September until Season
2 is due out, but in the meantime I'll get Buffy Season 4 and X-Files
Season 7. Yes!
I'm jonesing for some Outback
February 21, 2003: Just thinking about Outback makes
me all Homer Simpson-y. Anyways, if you didn't watch Survivor yesterday
- boy did you miss out. This cast is so incredibly better than Africa
was, better than Thailand, and I think on par with Marquesas and the Outback.
It's unreal that some of these people play the game as if they've never
watched the show. Idiots. But it makes for great TV. Alright, other than
that, I like school a lot better now that I've been doing this flexnet
thing for a week. It's not so bad, as you get in the swing of things.
So that's good. Other than that, it's all good.
ABBA makes all things better
February 16, 2003: Listening to ABBA really does make
me feel better. Like in the movie Muriel's Wedding, one day maybe my life
can be like an ABBA song. We'll see. Right now I am totally hating school,
with this law class that I have to take making me afraid of school. I
am really not into the legal world, and all the other students were! I
felt like I was definitely in the wrong place. Ah well, once I get past
this class, maybe things will turn around. Or maybe I should just plunge
headfirst into this class and learn to LOVE it! I need to turn lemons
into lemonade! Yeah, that'll happen.
Survivor Amazon kicks @$$!
February 13, 2003: I just couldn't write a school paper
when I was so stoked by the premiere 90-minute episode of Survivor! What
a blast - I won't go too into it again in this section, you can just read
what I wrote here. But wow, if you missed
it, just kick yourself now. Well, I guess I will be writing my papers
at work tomorrow, but you didn't hear that from me. It was funny though,
my mom had called right before Survivor started, and I was giving her
crap insisting it was a foregone conclusion that the women would lose
and the deaf girl was gone. And after the debacle of the women's shelter
setup, I had to call again just to rub it in. Well, this wasn't the first
time I've been wrong. And no, I was not the bigger person and I did not
call back to apologize. But here, in this forum, I will be glad to say
I was wrong and she was right. This time.....
Team Jelly is alive!
February 12, 2003: It's official - I just checked on
survivornews.net and there were 5 people signed up for Team Jelly! You
can click here to read all about
the best team around, and I suggest you also check out the other Survivor
pages I've made. I must say, I am quite the webmaster! Alright, enough
of me stroking my....ego! What, all you dirty perverts thought I was going
to write something else,didn't you? Hmmph. :-)
I ate enough to explode
February 10, 2003: Seriously, I did. I went out to dinner
with DC, his girl Berta, and his friend Curtis to the Green Valley Ranch
Station Casino, which is a seriously sweet 'local' casino. It looks just
as ritzy (if not moreso) as a Strip casino, but this place is way down
in the Green Valley area. It's a beautiful casino inside and out, but
what we explored tonight was the outstanding buffet for only $16.08 with
tax. Yowza! Round 1 included prime rib, country-style ribs, buttered mashed
potatoes (YUM), and something else I can't remember. If that wasn't enough,
I went back for Round 2, which was a humongous plate full of shrimp scampi
and bowtie pasta, made for me as I waited. OMG! This was the shizzniosity,
and I ain't lyin'! I couldn't eat all this though, only half. And then
after a little bit o' coaxing, I got a scoop of some french vanilla ice
cream. I could barely move, but it was so good. I know Jason Rubi would
be proud of me. And to top it all off, as we were leaving, I saw a Wheel
of Fortune 25 cent machine, put in my $20 bill, and on the first spin
I got a SPIN! And I got a 100 quarters from it! I cashed out then and
there. Thinking the streak would keep going though, I went to the Megabucks
machine (which is up to $31 MILLLLLLION dollars) and put in $20 of the
casino's money, alas, not getting anything. But I had to try!
Enough already, where are my volunteers?
February 9, 2003: Okay, I know you may be scared and
all to do this survivor thing, but don't be. And now that the voting is
up, and I've seen the questions, it's not a very hard thing to do. The
questions are along the lines of "Who will get voted out first?"
and "Which team will win immunity tonight?" and that kind of
stuff. There are 9 questions (I think) each week - c'mon people! DO IT!
I feel like Buffy tonight!
February 4, 2003: Yay! A new Buffy is on tonight, as
well as American Idol. I watched last week's Wednesday episode, and it
was unfortunately addicting. I'm slowly but surely returning to enjoying
watching network TV again - just this season I've picked up American Idol,
Alias, Friends, Scrubs, Will & Grace, & Smallville. Buffy and
Survivor are gimmies as well. TV GOOD. ;-) And hey, it's only 9 days till
the 90-minute Survivor premiere! Remember to Sign Up at the Piranha
Pool so we can win the virtual survivor. Do it, Do it! NOW!
Happy Anniversary Mom & Harv!
February 1, 2003: Well, what a day. I get woken up by
a phone call from my Mom telling me about the Space Shuttle Columbia tragedy
- who knows how long it will take to figure out what caused that. I think
I'm in the camp of people that know it's a tragedy and acknowledge that,
but also know that all astronauts know that they are signing up for a
highly dangerous and risky endeavor. It's still extremely unfortunate
and sad that this happened, and if it is due to the fact that the piece
of foam hit the wing on takeoff, then they were doomed from the second
that happened. I just hope that the space program learns from this, corrects
what they can, and moves on. Space is too important a frontier to give
up on - hell, it's our descendants future considering eventually we are
going to outgrow the planet. WOAH, who gave me that soapbox? Here, you
can have it back. Let's get back to trivial and fun stuff!
Shoot me an email if you want to. I may respond. (okay, you know I will - what else have I got to do?)
