Las Vegas

Jane, Nate and I flew into Vegas. While we were waiting for the rest of the gorup to arrive by car, Nate and I celebrated our return to Vegas with a big ass beer at the Brew Pub in the Monte Carlo. Jane sipped on her whiskey.

Here is a picture of the guys (where's Roger?), the girls (where's Roger?) and the whole group (where's Roger?).

Can you guess what Jane and Mike are doing? They're dancing. What a bunch of dorks. Haha.

Wii Shall Overcome

So this is my story of how a little game console turned 9 days in December into one of the biggest adventures of my life.

Wii would like to buy!

Dude, why are the Wii consoles so hard to find. I've been on a crazy hunt for one and I guess I'm not the only one. There are a bunch of moms and dads out there lurking around Gamestops for the UPS guy to show up with the day's shipment hoping to God that there are some Wiis in the shipment.

After calling around and waiting at two stores, unfortunately, I did not get a Wii. On the bright side, I did learn some interesting stuff. Like Nitendo's been a company since 1889. The guy at Gamestop said they started off making majong tiles, but he was wrong. What a weinerdog. Anyways, according to wikipedia, they started off making go-stop cards. They also ran a love motel and a taxi company before settling on video games.

I also learned that moms and dads know more about video games than I had thought. However, their knowledge is a bit superficial and you don't know how many times I heard some middle-aged woman walk into gamestop and ask if they had "that guitar thing."

Then, I learned that Target has a bunch of Wiis in their warehouse waiting for Sunday when they put out their ads. What a bunch of losers. So this Sunday, at the big major retailers like Target, Walmart, Bestbuy, they're going to be put out, because that's when Gamestop won't be getting any shipments at all. This is all according to the guy at Gamestop who thinks the world revolves around them. Also, at bestbuy, I guess you get a ticket. But I heard at Target, it's a free for all with people running through the store to get to the electronics department. I may have to do some reconnaissance work before this Sunday.

Anyways, I'll be back at Gamestop tomorrow. Wish Mii luck. Hopefully, I'll have one by Saturday for the game portion of my party, otherwise, you know where I'll be on Sunday morning.

Lucky Magic Slippers

About a week ago, me, my mom, and oooju went to Korea Town and stopped off at Kim's Home Center. I bought these slippers and actually ended up on KBS LA news checking them out during Kim's Home Center's grand reopening. The camera guy really liked the way I shopped so he kept asking me to pick up the slippers over and over again.

Anyways, when we got home, the slippers proved to be not only lucky but magical. For some reason, the baby really gets a kick out of them.

new office mates!

Well, I couldn't resist sharing this with you guys. Look who moved into (and pretty much took over) my office:

Birthday Weekend

At the Redcat Lounge:

Iwei doen't look impressed with Robert, but Nuvia's loving it.

Me and Cathy

Nate and me

Grace, Nuvia, and Jane: They practice their poses at home before going out

Rosie and Danial

We took over the lounge at Redcat and it felt like a private party! Thanks for coming everyone. I had so much fun!

Degenerate Art Ensemble:

Unfortunately, everyone bailed and didn't stay for the show,except my cousins and Cathy. But they really didn't have a choice since we carpooled. Luckily, Cathy got a free ticket because it was sold out. That's right haters, you missed an awesome show.

After Party at El Gallitos Taco Truck:

Best taco truck in the world! It's pretty much a taco truck in a parking lot and people order and stand around and eat. Jane busted out her spanish and impressed everyone. Grace got tripas tacos. I think I'm gonna have to try that next time.
