CO - part 2

Yesterday was crazy. It turns out that when I got to Denver Airport, I didn't have a seat on the plane. They offered me a round-trip voucher if no seats opened up, and then I could have taken a bus. Turns out there was a seat but I was, yet again, the last person on the plane. Oh yeah, they changed the gate to my first flight without announcing it, yet there was another flight to Denver from the old gate. I was so confused.

So after I finally made it to Sarah's, she called me and I met her on campus for 2 different rehearsals. I took pictures for the latter (Perks) but they didn't come out very well. I had no idea how to use her camera, so the exposure was way too long due to the lack of light on stage. I think the camera was trying to compensate, but it just made most of the pictures blurry. Too bad Jim didn't make it out for that. I think they will be up on Facebook soon, most likely on Sarah's profile.

Then last night after a late dinner we headed out to a party. It was pretty cool and everyone was so nice. I also found out they have a couple of really good beers in Springs, which was good because Sarah was trying to get me drunk. After that we left to go to a rave. It was sweet. They did a good job with lighting and such. I met a few more people that I've known about for years but never met in person. Oh yeah! And I saw Sarah's friend Sarah, who lives in IA. Turns out she got hit by a van a few weeks after I met her! I still cannot believe it. She walking around with a cane (at a rave?!) but seems to be in really high spirits. We left the party pretty early and took the safe ride home (four whole whole blocks).

CO - part 1

This morning I got out of bed at quarter after five, so my father could drive me to the airport before going to work. That's way too damned early for anyone to be getting up.

We made a quick stop at a walmart (my parents are looking for a Wii) and arrived at the airport around half past six. I somehow managed to make it all the way through the line to security before realizing I was in the employee only line. They were nice enough to let me through but I still held up the line. As always, I forgot something in my bag (liquids). I had breakfast for the first time in months. Now I have over an hour wait for my flight. At least I'm headed west because it looks like there is a huge storm in Chi-town. I just picked up a copy of I Am Legend, and so far its pretty good.

Sorry I'm not writing more; its hard to type on this tiny phone.

Yet again...

Most of you know that I love music, and I hate to lose it. It takes a really, really bad song to make me delete it from my hard drive (say She Bangs by Ricky Martin). So I have multiple copies of just about every song I own.

Apparently I owe the RIAA a ton of money, or at least they hope to make it so. The RIAA is pushing to make copyright laws more strict. So strict that if you were to back up an album by burning it to a blank CD, that would be against the law. If it was just a 10 song album, you would owe $1.5 million.

Anyone else think that is insane?!

Worthless phone!

For those of you who don't know, I bought an iPhone. Yes, it was expensive, but it's so cool. I did manage to find something annoying/strange about it though. I got a picture message from a friend today, and it wouldn't display on my phone. Instead I got a text from AT&T telling me to go to a certain web site and put in to put in the name/password they gave me. Why can't my iPhone display it?! It's the coolest phone ever, yet I have to find a computer every time some sends me a picture message. Lame.

Anyway, here is the photo Gym sent me. For no reason. :)


In other news, I am headed to CO this weekend to see a play based on one of my favorite books, The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I'm pretty excited, since I know half the cast and I haven't been to CO since high school.
