what a whirlwind couple of weeks this has been... got back from my Mirage/Aria stay with the g/f on March 15, we had an absolutely amazing time, but while we were there, I was thinking that I really needed to somehow get back down with my friends at some point over the next year or so to have a guys weekend. while we were there, I overcalculated how much money I needed, and came back with a bit. the night we came back, went out with a friend of mine, who has been down 5 or 6 times, but not for the past 5 years or so, and told him what an amazing time we had. next day, he calls me and says that he wants to go. IN MAY!! I don't have much in the way of disposable income (I work a fairly low-paying retail job), but he generously offers to put up the funds for airfare/hotel. everything got booked and finalized tonight. I'm so excited I think I'm gonna puke can't wait!!
