Hurricane Central West

So, you might be wondering what I've been doing for the past two days in sunny, HOT Las Vegas?? (Let's pretend that you were wondering).

I've been laying on the bed with M. watching The Weather Channel, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and pretty much anything else with hurricane coverage. M.'s house is thankfully fine as she is not directly in the path (they are in the Florida panhandle), and her dad escaped the path as well. I have heard from nearly everyone else I know who lives in that area, but I still have one very good friend whose family is in Mobile, AL and I am thinking of them and hoping they are OK. Anyway, we basically haven't done anything but watch hurricane stuff on TV -- it's sick but we can't turn it off. We went to dinner last night with a bunch of friends and had a great time, but with her wallet being gone still, it's not like we can do too much -- no ID, no money, not a lot to do in Vegas. Since we have both spent large portions of our lives living on the Gulf Coast, hurricane watching seems like a good second option after getting drunk and wandering around the strip in 108 degree weather. She's at work right now, and getting a new ID today, so maybe we'll actually get out and do some stuff tonight. I went out and took a short jog this morning and I thought the sunlight was going to blind me, I'm turning into some kind of vampire bat or something -- sitting in the dark watching TV and drinking Diet Coke.

In other news, OCI results aren't up yet -- supposedly they'll be up by noon. Also, I haven't actually started working on my other applications for federal Honors programs which was going to be the one thing I was going to do while M. was at work during the days this week. Everything is due to most places in the next two weeks, so I guess I need to get on that. It's hard to get back into the swing of things while I'm on "vacation."

Also, I went to Margaritaville on Saturday night and had dinner -- they wouldn't serve M. without at ID so we didn't really drink, but I think we're going to go back before we leave so we can all really enjoy it. I bought a t-shirt that totally doesn't fit (that's going back for an exchange when we go back), and a pint glass that I'm going to love until I finally break it just like I break everything I love. It was super fun though and the people there were great for was like one of his concerts, a real cross-section of society. Jimmy Buffett: The Great Uniter.

We're going to hopefully go see The Aristocrats tonight, and we still are planning to see The American Storm male revue later this week. Hooray for hot boys shaking their moneymakers. YAY!

Because my internet connection keeps going out on me, I'm going to quit writing this while I'm ahead, but I'm sure I'll be updating periodically, and hopefully with something interesting. Sorry that I'm so boring these days, but I'm enjoying my vacation and not forcing myself to do much or get out much, so my life is pretty much on an even keel for right now, which I guess doesn't make for great blogging. Plus I'm not really able to read anyone else's blog right now which means I don't know what is going on or what everyone is talking about. I'll try to get my shit together in the upcoming days...I promise!
