Eventually, our food did arrive. The garlic mashed potatoes were pretty good, but that was about it. I ordered the brisket. It would be wrong to say that the food was bad. It is more accurate to say the food was mediocre at best. Overall, I do not feel we will be going back to that restaurant, at least not until they get a following.

And I quote:
"...and why and I telling you all of this Bryon? Because as of Sunday [yes, as in, 4 days away...] you will no longer be working at 600 [current store location]. You will be 700's [notice a theme in the numbers?] new manager!"...
I must say I was quite shocked. First, 700 [new store location, just in case you weren't following] is not exactly the store I wanted. Its another 24 hour store. I was sort of hoping to not get a 24 hour store, since the hours and customer flow was better. Also, 700 [keeping up?] is further away than 600 was. Also, I was hoping I would have more than 4 days to prepare. But, alas, this was not the case. And so, it is Sunday, and I am waiting in the firefly (on paradise) parking lot, waiting Devin. We are having brunch before my first day. Quite nervous right now, but I did pick out an awesome outfit! Here's to rapid changes in life...

Afterwards, we headed down to Fremont Street. We caught the 10pm canopy showing, then hung out at Mickie Finns around the outdoor fire pit! The moon watched over us, as to say, be happy and enjoy!

In other news, I am being promoted at work, so I have started working day shifts to train for it. That means I wake up at 5am, am at work at 630am, and off work at 230ish. This is a major change in my life, so it has been hard to adjust! But, I am hoping that within a few weeks, I will be moved to a smaller store that does not open until 9ish, so I may have a few extra hours of sleep!
Also, it is now winter in Vegas, which means a light jacket, and some wind. From what I hear though, this has been a mild winter, which is perfectly fine for Carrie and me! Remembering winter’s past, I can hardly even imagine living in that type of environment again. I try to explain that to those who live here, but it sometimes falls on deaf ears. I guess they just need to experience that for themselves!

This weekend I was able to catch an improve style telling of A Christmas Carol. The audience chose the three Ghost before the play kicked off, and our poor Ebinezer was haunted by Elvis, Paris Hilton, and Jack Sparrow! It was performed at The Stage Door down at Towne Square, and was quite entertaining!
Last weekend we had the great privalage of seeing Train perform live! What an awesome event that was, I must say. I have also gotten the pleasure of eating at Pin Kows, which was very good, and Chilly Palmers.

Its been a month since me and Carrie have moved here to Vegas! It seems much longer than a month has passed since we woke up thatThursday morning, shed some tears and goodbyes, and set out on our voyage. Its difficult to realize that within this past month, I have made new friends, had two jobs, and met several met on dates. How does one truly capture a new life and a new start within a month? My old life seems so far way now. The Credit Union, my friends, my family. Simple things here that are taken for granted seem to overshadow life back east, like weather, and the ability to get any food you desire by just going out your door!
Last night Carrie and I called on some friends to celebrate our one month anniversary at a local bar. A few friends bailed, as expected, but a few did show up! It was nice to have a place to go to hang out with friends, and just be relaxed. When driving home, we discussed that we absolutely love it here in Vegas. Everything in the world you could possibly want is here in Vegas, even New York City! (Or a smaller replica of it!). How could people not love it here!?
