Okay, so The Ryan Saga put me way behind on my normal blogging - but I'm glad I got to tell my story - it was nice to get it off my chest and speak freely about my past. I haven't finished a 4th step yet, so my sponsor doesn't even know about all of that stuff. Of course, I'm sure she's seen and done much worse so whatever.
Last weekend the San Genaro Festival was in town - every year it comes to Las Vegas and I'm like "yeah, I wanna go to that" - but every year it comes and it goes and I never go there. This year all of my friends were going on Friday night after the meeting, so I went with them and it was such a blast. First off, I didn't know they had a bunch of rides. I thought it was just a lot of food and walking around. Imagine my JOY and SURPRISE and UTTER HAPPINESS when I saw The Zipper, that giant roller coaster that goes around in circles and stays upside down as you are suspended in the air, a funhouse, a pirate ship thing, bumper cars, a ferris wheel, and that thing that goes around in circles and the floor drops and you are stuck to the side. And a bunch of other rides. They even had a skydiving thing that cost like $25 per person. I wanted to do that - but I didn't feel like spending the money. But, I got on everything else.
Anyway, you get the idea, I haven't that much fun in a really long time. I got the on the zipper with my friend Charles and he was screaming like a little girl, holding my hand and freaking out and I just laughed for 5 minutes straight. My stomach hurt when I get off because I was laughing so freaking hard. I'm a huge fan of thrill rides. I want to go to the stratosphere or circus circus this weekend and get on some more rides.
Anyway, I used to go to the Italian Festival every year in Baltimore with my family and it was always at the Inner Harbor and they never had any rides. So, anyway, the San Genaro is better and I will go every year no matter what.
I also played in a Texas Hold Em home game at my friend Phil's house Saturday night and I took 3rd place, so I got some money which was good.
Last night I went to a meeting with my friend Jennifer, it was downtown, sort of in the ghetto - anyone familiar with D Street and Madison? It's pretty nasty, but the meeting was great. Long though. It's a 2 hour meeting and it's really real. Like, most of the meetings I go to are in nice areas and people are driving BMW's and Mercedes and they live in big houses and they sometimes take that shit for granted. So, when I go to a rougher area and see people struggling to get one day clean and see them walk across the street the homeless shelter - well, it puts things in perspective.
My butt was numb after the meeting though - 2 hours is WAY TOO LONG for me to sit still.
Finally Marissa went home on Dancing with the Stars. I am throwing all of my support to Christian De La Fuente and Cheryl Burke. Jason Taylor is too stiff during the latin dances and Kristi has too much experience dancing. I mean, dancing on ice is a form of dancing and she's like a ringer.
But, honestly, all three couples are good and I'm glad to see the best three in the finals and I won't be mad if any of them win.
Keep in mind - Christian has a messed up arm and you can't even tell - pretty amazing.
Jason's Pasa Doble...
Lots of season finale's this week. I have Medium on my DVR but I haven't watched it yet. I have The Hills season finale to watch and of course tonight is the Office season finale. I can't wait to watch it!!!!! I think Jim is definitely going to propose to Pam.
