So another few weeks have passed. What do I find myself doing? Work for audio set up on the Voodoo Lounge at the Rio. I have to say, that manager of the bar is a complete dunderhead. Plans are made for a particular set up, as agreed to by said manager. My co-worker and I have a quick meeting and find out he's changed his mind yet again, so...there will have to be more changes. This will result in making him angry...again b/c he can't keep his mind focused on a single item.
Grant me the patience to bear the suffering of idiots.
On a more pleasing note, I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July. Mine wasn't as spectacular as I'm used to, but it was a good warm up for being new to an area.
Spent the day relaxing in the pool, chatting with my brother in law's family. Drinking away. I have to say, his sister is one hot lady. Sadly she is married, and appears monopoly, monogoatcheese, monospeaker, whatever that word is that means 'this person only'. Mind you I'm not overly upset by this. I have decided to attempt to clean up my ways by not 'chasing' married women. We'll have to see how that goes. Considering I've only had one date since I moved here, I don't think that'll be too much of a problem.
So why is it I'm having trouble getting dates? Is it because I'm still new to the area...I carry the 'tourist' look too much? Perhaps. I can see why a woman would not want to have a fling with a tourist...at the same time confused as to why she's have a fling with a local LOL. Too much thinking, not enough pursuing. <shrug>.
So where was I? Oh yes, 4th of July. Which I might add is MY most favored holiday of them all. Yes, there are others, some for love, some for family, some for social interaction, so on and so forth. None have quite the meaning of July 4th however. For starters, that's the date we get to celebrate our Declaration of Independance. We weren't actually free at this time, but this was when our fore fathers stepped up and thumbed their noses at the English crown.
In celebration, we celebrate by roasting dead animal flesh on grills, both propane and charcoal. We drink copious amounts of alcohol, to celebrate our freedom, being with friends, and to toast the flesh of said dead animals. We end this all with fireworks. Celebrating the fighting that endured while we brought freedom to the United States. What better way to celebrate then by partying, drinking, eating and blowing up a little bit of America I ask you.
So, as we moved out front, we set up and blew off our fireworks. I have to tell you, comming from up north where there are 20-40 people and the average 'collection' of fireworks totals $600, this years display of less then $150, was....not as impressive. Regardless, I had much fun.
Now, it's my sisters birthday this weekend, so I've no clue on what we're going to do. Probably lounge by the pool, get drunk. All good by me.
