It has been another unbelievably eventful weekend here in Nebraska this week. On Friday, I went out for sushi with friends before Jitterbugs Night Out and then crashed at a Village Inn afterwards. The big news, however, is that the lovely Vivian Taber has agreed to be my girlfriend. I met her my second or third night at Jitterbugs Night out and have had something of a crush on her for quite some time. It took me forever to work up the courage to ask her out on an actual date back in December, but since then we’ve been seeing each other quite regularly. She’s the reason I’ve been driving up to Omaha two, three, often four times every week. And you know what, folks? She is so worth it.
On Saturday, I watched The Pursuit of Happyness with my brother, Nathan, which was a very inspiring movie. Then on Sunday, I came back to Omaha to go to Terra Nova again with Vivian. They are having a series on relationships during the next few weeks that’s been quite informative. Afterward, on a spur-of-the-moment, Viv and I dropped into a Wild Oats food market to buy some shrimp and then returned to her place to make up some shrimp alfredo. It was quite delicious.
This week, I’m going to be heading on down to Las Vegas to help with a tradeshow at the World Market Center for my company, Land and Sky. I’ll be doing clean-up duties again, which means I’ll be flying in on Wednesday to babysit a relatively dead trade show until Friday. Then I’ll pack up a bunch of beds and ship them on back to Nebraska. In-between times, however, the city is mine to explore. I’ve been to Vegas twice already, had a good look up and down the strip, and last year I saw Mystère and Louie Anderson while I was in town. This time I’m staying downtown at the Golden Nugget instead of on the Strip, so I’ll be able to check out Fremont Street and see some of the other sites in Downtown Las Vegas. Expect to see some pictures when I return!
