left L.A. (and Harakiri) at 11:45pm last night to return to Las Vegas to be at work at 6:00am. Had a blast hanging otu with Pierre and Carmen. Found out Carmen was in both Napoleon Dynamite as Starla and played the bodyguard for the robot in A.I. Met lots of interesting people. Drove to barstow crashed for an hour and a half in a Denny's parking lot before continuing on and arriving at work at 5:00am. Where I found out I was working a double for my friend Vera, who's apartment was damaged in an arson related fire a couple of days ago. So I get to spend 16 hours at work today and don't have to be back until 12:00pm tomorrow woot! Then there will be one more day until I fly out for Portland. I'm so very excited.
