Wow it's been almost a year since I last posted.

Over the weekend Sandy and I enjoyed dinner at The Melting Pot. Which is a nice romantic fondue restaurant (a little expensive, but very tasty). It worked out nice she wanted the shrimp and I wanted the steak so we weren't fighting over each other's pieces.

This Friday Sandy and I will be extras in a vampire movie my friend, Joe, is doing (Plug: Man on The Run Productions) The scene will be filmed in my office and we will receive a free copy of the movie when it's done and our name in the credits. It will be our 15 seconds of fame :)

Work life is easy. I work from 7-4 listening to ESPN Radio in the morning and in the afternoon I am "watching" (listening mainly and watching when I am waiting for web sites to load) Simpsons episodes on my Nintendo DS Lite. I got something that makes it work almost exactly like an iPod Video (No cheap shots here, Sandy, sorry). I get home and I watch PTI then Countdown with Keith Olbermann then whatever else TiVo has for me while playing Xbox (Marvel vs. Capcom 2, mostly) or the DS. I am very eager for the Suns to start playing again.

Sandy and I also just recently took a trip to Vegas (again) and had a lot of fun, We saw "Ka" at the MGM Grand and were awestruck by the acrobatics. I also lost, a lot, gambling, a lot. I could tell by how I would eat breakfast while Sandy was still asleep, The first day I went to a nice buffet and by the end of our trip (5th day) I was eating in the small McDonald's clone in our hotel getting the $3.95 value meal :P We stayed at the Imperial Palace which has grown on us having a bathtub big enough for 5 people and being centrally located on the strip. Melissa and I are planning another Vegas trip (for the family) for possibly October and Sandy and I are thinking of going for Christmas again. Maybe this time we will see Paris Hilton making out with someone (other 2 times we were in Vegas on the entertainment news there was a Paris Hilton sighting a few hours after we left that hotel/casino, most recently The Mirage with Cardinals Backup QB Matt Leinhart.)

Last week I got to see my Dad, who was in town on business and staying at a hotel around the corner from my office. I got some nice quality time with him and I was proud I was able to hold my own our sports conversations (Thanks Dan Patrick and ESPN Radio) usually I am lost on all of the golf but I was able to bring new fresh stuff into the conversation. I stayed away from the "Mom" topic (and if you want to story on that you'll have to ask that's another post that might take me about 4 hours to write).

Well that's enough for now. I need my beauty rest before Sandy gets home from class. Good Night and Good Luck.

And I thought it took "me" a while between posts. Hehe. :) j/k

What's this "thing" that makes a DS work almost like an iPod Video? A curious mind wants to know. :)
