I was thinking the same thing.


Universal Studios is like the coolest party ever!  We only got to go bowling at our X-mas party.
The wife forgave the mistress for she only entertained.

Go to a bar on sunset strip called the saddle ranch.  Tell the tourist chicks you're producing a reality series about your life that's going to air on FX.  Then take them back to their hotel and nail them.

Through Eddie's work - free admission, hotel, meals, etc - they just won't pay for my plane ticket, which is fine. It's some Microsoft gig connected to the class he'll be in all week, I think - I didn't get all the details. Lord knows I'd rather attends an after-hours party with IT geeks than insurance geeks.  :bernie:

Flickin' the bean.
I said its hot outside let me go swimming in your eyes;
We been running for awhile. Why don't you lay dow, I'll make you smile.
I could never ask for nothing better than this;
It's just tequila and the beach, it's quite salty when we kiss.

.....
I had fun.
Thursday: DROVE for Six hours. Ate lunch at Antoinotto's or some mexican joint. Was quite satisfied. Ate dinner at California Pizza Kitchen, attended opening Ceremony where the LA times Editor made himself seem kind of foolish.

Friday: Had Continental breakfast. Was sated but not satisfied. Attended workshops. Best one: The Pulitzer Prize Winning Food Critic talking about critiquing food (He gave everyone bread. It was some of the best sourdough I've ever eaten).
Then went to Universal City with Editor-In-Chief. Ate at the Bubba Gump Co. restaurant. Very satisfying, and I bought a Light-up cup. Looked around, did some minor shopping, then went back to Awards Ceremony for Mail-In contest. Asshole Sports editor got an Honorable mention for a Sports story, Great former A & E writer won 4th place for a critical review of Guitar Hero 3. Then discussed asshole Sports Editor with Editor In Chief and Advisor.

Saturday: Turns out I walked too much and the tendons in my foot started acting up. Attended grand total of 4 Workshops, spent rest of day watching Dirty Jobs and Survivor Man. In the Public Relations workshop, I leaned back in the chair to stretch. Back of chair broke. Went flying back. Sent Table in front knocking around from long legs, table behind knocked around with long arms. The workshop ended 20 minutes early because people were cracking up.
Then I attended a general meeting of the JACC. Bored to tears. Was cursing quite prominently under breath, especially when people started whining about Socal winning Best Layout. Bunch of pussies.
Had dinner at 8:00 provided by the convention. Was pathetic. Sated (by eating the vegetarian meal as well as the meat lovers when a Vegetarian didn't like his plate), not satisfied until dessert came. Ate three of them. On-Site competition awards were announced, Tempest wins nothing. Went back to room to watch more Discovery Channel. Was called by Advisor saying that I had actually won an Honorable Mention for the Illegal Immigration story (That lots of people here posted about!) I did. Went to sleep quite happy.

Sunday: Woke up, Ate breakfast at The Pantry. Was satisfied with Biscuits & Gravy (Gravy could've used more meat chunks). Got on the road at 9:17 exactly. Traffic slowed us by 40 minutes. Ate lunch at the Apricot Restaurant. Patty Melt was consumed, with Onion Rings, was sated and satisfied. Got back to Fairfield at about 4:30. Got home a 5:00. Unpacked clothing....then entertained Cousins from LA that came down to visit.

Will tell stories next post.

If the hard-hitting story beat gets boring, you can do restaurant reviews.

He must've been impressed that your words called upon the ire of Lord Puffington.

Indeed, any piece that catches the eye of that pontificatious fop is an article of note.

Stories:
Ended a Workshop 20 minutes early by violent action.
Sat through a god awful JACC board meeting.
My Hotel Room-mate is a bloody Hippy that wouldn't wake up for a Nuclear Attack.
Went to a workshop "Putting Comedy in your column", found out that I'm funnier than the person running it.

Ending the Workshop:
So at about 4:45 Saturday I was sitting in a Public Relations Workshop during its Q& A segment. I lean back a little to stretch (furniture isn't built for people with long arms or legs, I swear), and suddenly I'm on the floor. The back of the chair had given out and I'd fallen straight back. my outstretched arms knocked the table behind me aside, and my legs ALMOST sent the table in front of me flying. Thankfully it just ended up knocked over.
Proctor: "Oh my Goodness! Are you all right?"
Me: "Holy fuck. How'd I get down here? Yeah. I'm fine. Chair's not."
So after I get up and assure everyone I'm fine, a couple people quickly vacate, of which there's prompt laughter outside. The Proctor tries to answer any other questions, but there really isn't since everyone's trying not to laugh. So she ended it 20 minutes early.

The JACC meeting:
I'm obligated to attend this JACC meeting with the advisor. It's god awful boring and I go through most of it listening to my Ipod. However, I'M starving, so I'm constantly distracted. Then this meeting gets elongated when one school rep starts discussing the possibility of splitting the award categories because SoCal won best Design because "They're a monthly publication so they had more time to layout." Which is bullshit. Every college in the JACC works on a different schedule/budget; some are monthly, some are bi-weekly, some are weekly. Some have better equipment. There's absolutely no way to even the playing field, and separating the awards category, while seemingly logical, would mean further draining money and time from judges since they'd have to split a bunch of categories into subcategories and all that kind of crap. That argument extended the meeting by twenty or thirty minutes until the Solano Advisor stood up and basically said "Okay. While I'm sure everyone feels better about themselves by whining and bitching, it's not going to solve anything so let's shut up, move on, and end this so we can go eat." I then stood up and said "I second this motion."

My room mate the hippy:
First off, my Room mate was a vegan. It annoys me not because he doesn't eat meat, but because his point of view has lead to annoying conversations. Nice guy, but this part kind of annoys me.
"Why are the Mythbusters using pigs?"
"They're an analog for humans."
"Why'd they kill the pigs for this? It's such a waste."
"Look. They got them from a butchers shop. Either the pigs were going to get eaten, or they get shot with a cannonball. You wouldn't be happy with either, so stop questioning it."

Anyway. This guy is also a log when it comes to sleep. He asks me to wake him up for the breakfast Friday Morning. I'm up at 6:30, it's at 7:15. I wait until 7:00 and try to wake him up.
"Meeeeh. It'll be there at 7:30." Yeah.
Saturday night he asks me to wake him up when I wake up so we can go to the Pantry. I wake up at 6:00. I wait until about 6:45 and try to wake him up.

"Hey. Dude. You want to go to the Pantry or what?'
"Meeeeeh. I dunno."
"Fuck you then." So I went by myself, which wasn't nearly as fun.

I don't want it to be easy, I want it to be right.

I read that "virgin" and wondered for a minute why that would annoy you.  Did they really kill pigs to prove a point?  If so, that's harsh, man.

Vegans annoy me too. I enjoy their food... but then I want some steak with it.
I said its hot outside let me go swimming in your eyes;

I could never ask for nothing better than this;
It's just tequila and the beach, it's quite salty when we kiss.
