Just a couple updates on my whereabouts. I took an extended vacation last weekend, flying down to Las Vegas on Friday. When we arrived in the terminal, I noted that it was the fifth time I had been in there in six months. Saturday I had dinner with my Aunt and her friend, and then we all saw Kà, which is probably the most impressive theatrical show I have ever seen (much of the action takes place on a 25 by 50 foot, 300,000 pound moving platform). I've been listening to the soundtrack, which has a number of beautiful songs. On Sunday we went to The Gun Store. I was hesitant at first, but it was only a short drive and once I got there I couldn't help myself. My brother and I both shot an AK47 and Glock 17. That night we had dinner at the Venetian with my mom's friend Jan and her daughter, and then partook a Blue Man show. I was very happy that Brett was playing, but didn't recognize the other Blue Men. Afterwards I talked to Brett briefly who said Phil and Puck were there that night helping introduce a few changes (most notably to TV Heads). We stopped in the gift store and I bought some badly needed kitchenware: a Blue Man shot glass. On Monday, Jan and we went to Red Rock Canyon followed by Sonic burger (which, has no veggie options, so I had onion rings). Later, we went shopping in the Forum Shops where I picked up two pairs of pants and two shirts. We had dinner at Chinois—which was also lacking in veggie options—and I had a delicious salmon in citrus soy sauce with peppers dinner. Salmon is fairly healthy in moderation and has all those wonderful fatty acids. I also sampled Jeff and Mom's 餃子 and chicken dish. Having my first meal of the day, and after just shopping for a long time, I stuffed myself with the salmon, rice, and dessert (which was a delicious, crunchy praline chocolate mousse). Tuesday I flew back by myself and had dinner with Dad at Jalisco on 65th. I was starting to cook dinner Wednesday when I stupidly cut myself. I went to the ER and had three stitches (now my finger looks like Frankenstein). That night I had him take me to Minnie's for dinner, because almost everything else was closed. On Friday I had dinner with my dad and Aunt Katherine at Cafe Flora (interestingly, Dad read my mind about restaurant choice both Tuesday and Friday). Unfortunately, there have been no parties this weekend, so I'm somewhat bored. I did go to Chaco Canyon for some juice on Saturday, though.
