Ok so I don't know any of you on a face to face basis.  I'd like to change that.   ;D

Would anyone be interested in coming up to Reno for some of our events / festivals this year?  We have a lot of really great events.  Hot August Nights (old cars and music), Best in the West Rib CookOff, Air Races, Baloon Races, Street Vibrations (Harley motorcycles).  We also have some really good arcades and restaraunts. 

Most of the events aren't until August or September.  I figured I'd see if anyone was interested in advance.  I have a pretty big apartment (at least by my standards), I could probably fit 4 or 5 people here easily if you're willing to stay here. 

I'll include some links to sites about the events and arcades in the area.  Let me know if anyone would like to come visit the Biggest Little City in the World.   :D
Things in the Universe / I can't believe I won!

I have to share and I'm short of people to share it with, so you're all being subject to my momentary ranting. 

I won the coolest contest in the history of Reno Radio Contests.  My sister nominated me for a contest called the Angels Among Us.  And they chose me to win.  I won "Gift of a New You including $5,000 gift card to Simon/Meadowood Mall, year-long membership to World Gym with fifty two personal training sessions valued at $1500, teeth whitening from Dr. Chase DDS valued at $1500, and $1500 in services from Nouveaus Aesthetics." 

$5,000 at the mall to "buy a new wardrobe".  Holy Heck in a Handbasket!

With everything negative that's been going on this was an insanely huge positive.  I wanted to share my happiness with everyone here too.  YAY YAY YAY YAY!!!   ;D

OK, back to normal now.  Thanks for reading.   :D

Things in the Universe / Holiday Spirit?
December 01, 2007, 11:14:55 PM
Is anyone else having a hard time finding the Holiday Spirit this year? 

Usually by now I'm blazing thru my Christmas music, decorating the house, buying gifts.  Generally making a scene and being a cheerful holiday type chick.  I just can't seem to find the joy in it all this year.  It's like a chore, not a holiday.  And that just plain sucks.  It's not like I'm more depressed than normal...I just don't seem to be enjoying anything about the holidays this year.

Any ideas on how to bring some joy into the season?  Anyone care to share their tales of joy / sorrow / annoyance so far this year?

My friend is not into anime...yet.  But she really wants to find an anime she can enjoy.  She keeps asking me what she should watch and so far I've had no luck.  Now, honestly she just might not be an anime fan, and that's ok.  But I thought I'd ask here and see if anyone had some good ideas.

She's a HUGE vampire fanatic.  Loves Buffy and books about vampire and their love lives.  Also loves fairies and pixies.  Watches a lot of soap operas, still watches Beverly Hills 90210 reruns. 

Her boyfriend tried Helsing with her...that was a big no go.  I've thought about trying Karin, but I'm afraid it won't go over well because of the whole "reverse Vampire" thing.   Any ideas?  It doesn't have to be vampire related, I think it's the "romanticism" of Vampires that she likes.  I'm just at a loss on what to try next.

Please let me know if you have any ideas.  Thank you in advance.
