been a busy few days. went to Vegas over the weekend to visit friends and family. it was freakin freezing there. i dont think i was really able to be completely warm then entire 4 days i was there.
flew in early friday morning. i hadnt gone to bed until 2:30 am the night before. i had to be up at 5:30 am so i could be to the airport by 6:15am. i flew out of Burbank for the first time. OMG. it was so much easier flying out of Burbank than flying out of LAX. my friend JJ gave me a ride to the airport. he actually volunteered to take me. i was just gonna take a cab. he had me worried though because he was supposed to call me when he woke up, or i was supposed to call him if i woke up first. i wake up at 5:30am. he hadnt called yet. so i call him. no answer. i wait like 10 mins. no answer. im thinking he was still sleeping and wasnt hearing his cell phone like he often conveniently does. at like 10 to 6, just as i was about to call a cab, he finally calls me back to tell me he was on his way and was in the shower when i was trying to call him. ugh. get to the airport at 6:15 just like i wanted to. i swear i must fit some kind of profile, or i really pissed someone off at one time, but every time i fly i get pulled aside and my bags searched and stuff. this time they pulled me aside and only swabbed my bags to see if i had any explosives on me.
my flight got in at 8am. my brother, Dwight, met me at the airport. went to breakfast with him at IHOP. they dont have the Stuffed Crepes at IHOP in Vegas. i was so disappointed. i was really craving Stuffed Crepes. oh well. afterwards my brother dropped me off at my dads work so i could pick up the explorer from him. visited with my dad for a few mins before heading off to my parents house. i tried to take a nap. wasnt happening. the dogs kept barking, neighbors kept knocking on the front door, etc. it was lame. i give up and go into the living room to watch tv and visit with my mom for a couple of hours. i get dressed and go visit Sean and Corey at Diesel. i stop at Starbucks for coffee where the homo behind the counter asks me which Starbucks i work at. i tell him West Hollywood and he gets all excited. he's all like it's so fabulous there, isnt it? i'm like, um, yeah...sure. it's wonderful in West Hollywood. and he's all like, are you just saying that? and i'm like, yup. anyways... hang out and visit Sean and Corey for a little while. afterwards i went to Dwight and Samantha's place to hang out with them. i show up and they're all excited because i have mom and dad's explorer. so we go to Target to get a xmas tree for their house. it's now like 8pm and i'm starting to get sleepy, very sleepy. i hang out with them at their house for like an hour and then decide to head home to my parents house. i watch TV for a little while before going to bed at 11:30.
saturday i wake up at like 10am. watched TV for a couple of hours then my mom and i met Dwight and Sam at Memphis BBQ for lunch. Memphis is such a disappointment when compared to Hoggly Woggly's in Sherman Oaks. i used to LOVE Memphis BBQ before i moved here to LA. Hoggly Woggly's is just so much better than Memphis BBQ. later that night i go to meet Corey at work like we had planned, so i get there and they tell me he's already gone home. so i call his house, and i get told he's sleeping so i just assume ive been stood up. i meet Sean for food and tell Sean what happends. Sean calls Corey and Corey is still sleeping, but calls Sean back like 5 mins later. Sean's all like im sitting here eating dinner with someone you stood up tonight. Corey felt really bad. he said he went home early and meant to call me, but he fell asleep and didnt realize how long he had slept. anyways...we ended up hanging out that night. we went to the Forum and did some shopping. i needed new shoes since one of my mom's dogs had eaten one of my good Sketchers earlier in the day. i had a lot of fun. not really interested in him other than friendship. but i do hope i made a new friend that night and look forward to seeing him and Sean soon when they come down for a visit sometime next month.
sunday was the family day. had a big dinner with family and close friends of the family. my dad cooked prime rib which came out so well. i cooked the garlic mashed potatoes which came out exceptionally well this time.
my ex Ken showed up to dinner. invited himself pretty much. that was a little awkward. we were together for 5 years. i understand that my parents are still close to him and they think of him as one of their sons, but both my brother and i dont really want anything to do with him at this point. this is the man who gave my chihuahua Bob away to someone instead of getting ahold of me and letting me know that he couldnt take care of Bob anymore.
flew back to LA on monday. it's sooo nice to be back. the weather had been perfect the last couple of days here in LA. sunny and warm like it should be durring the day. :)
Anyways..more to write. later. :)
