    Today. The pride of South America.
    BeneathTheRemains.jpg

    I'm annihilating my body and it's only been three nights in. I'd like to pick a spot where I just sip on some wine and watch reruns of 'Walker, Texas Ranger', but that probably won't happen on this day.

    I may start a job with my man Fred Savage later on, but I think I could probably draw that hungover tomorrow and finish it off in the evening when I move into the Plaza.

    Time for two bowls of the Pebble and to figure out a game plan.

    As I tried a new restaurant in Nora's yesterday afternoon for lunch, I am contemplating trying a new spot today before I return the rental. It's called the Crazy Horse III. There's a kitchen in there.

    OK.

    Busey and I have been bff's since we met at Edward's Hall (dormitory) as Freshmen at Colorado State University.

    When we graduated, I moved to Madison, WI for a year and then bolted to Los Angeles. Gary went back to Houston with his girlfriend of three years and they eventually moved to Los Angeles in 1999/2000.

    He was a broker at Morgan Stanley and ended up sleeping with the bosses daughter / knocking her up. His then gf found a picture of his parents holding a newborn baby and confronted him about it. "Who are your parents holding in this image?" Needless to say, she left him immediately. I think they were together for five or six years.

    Not even I had any idea he had a kid. I was aware of Mrs. Morgan Stanley, though.

    The mother of his daughter is insane. She's had five kids with five different guys and Gary actually won custody of the daughter....which is shocking because Gary's an animal. Their relationship didn't last long and the mother is not together with any of the other four dads. They're constantly at each other's throat.

    I was living in Santa Monica and he had moved into a place in Venice. One night in 2002/2003, we were at O'Brien's Irish Bar on Main St and we met a waitress there. She is Swedish and Gary and her have basically been together ever since. They married less than a year ago.

    Fast forward to 2016 or 2017 and, if you think the previous is a bit confusing...

    We were out here staying at Vdara and we went on a casino crawl. Started at Mandalay and worked our way back North. As is customary, I lost Gary on the walk between Luxor and The Black Lung (Excal). Apparently he saw a girl working one of those kiosks that he took a liking to. I didn't really see him until later that night, he told me about her and he said they had exchanged numbers.

    The next day (or the day after the next day), I'm eating something in the room and just about to go watch the Brewers play the Reds at Aria. Gary walks in with Mrs. Kiosk. I chatted with her for about ten minutes, they invited me to a late lunch, but I declined. That's the only time I ever saw or spoke to this girl.

    Completely unknown to me, Gary found a way to extend this girls work Visa (she was Russian) and he shacked her up in a hotel for two and a half weeks about a block from his house in Hermosa Beach...a house he shares with his daughter and Mrs. Sweden. He would later tell me that he seriously thought about marrying this girl (Mrs. Kiosk). She was 20 years old.

    How do I know this? I got a scathing phone call from Sweden one day angry with me for betraying her and our friendship. "Don't act like you don't know about her!" I knew about her but I didn't know all of the other stuff.

    That got found out by Mrs. Morgan Stanley, who somehow managed to hack Gary's icloud account. She saw all of the texts and emails / details about what was going on and ratted him out to Mrs. Sweden.

    I haven't spoken to Sweden in two-three years. I've tried. We were very close for a long time, but she blames me for something. I just want to know what that something is. It wouldn't surprise me if Gary tried to cover his ass by saying I had something to do with him meeting Mrs. Kiosk, but he says it's because Sweden and Kiosk spoke on the phone about everything and she was told that I hung out with them that entire time, which just isn't true.

    She left Gary for only a little bit. They got back together, they're now married and they just had their son born less than six months ago (at least she let's him wear the onesie I bought him...I like 'Die Hard', OK?).

    HH.jpg
    She won't talk to me, but she got back together with him. Makes zero sense, but it is what it is and this is really why I wanted to change my name. I wanted to delete the account and start new, but that wasn't a possibility, I guess.

    I have been writing these trip reports paranoid a fraction of the time over the past few years because I think I probably could be traced relatively easily and I don't want Sweden or Mrs. Morgan Stanley using anything I do against Gary...I mean, every trip he's out here with me and all of the other stuff took place in Vegas. Plus, they have a kid now and I just didn't want to be worrying about my actions/words anymore.

    If I can still be traced with the previous username linked with this new one, I'll either just have to request if @Sonya can delete these TR's a month after they're over with or probably just stop writing them altogether. She was very nice enough to delete the majority of my past reports.

    If something like this could actually happen (hacking into accounts), there's no reason to believe it couldn't/wouldn't happen again.

    PHEW!!

    It's obvious at this point that you need to have a threesome with Sweden and Mrs. Stanley.

    Seriously, though...is Gary worth the hassle in your life? He seems like the James Spader character in those 80's movies...I see you spending 20 years in a Mexican prison over something he did.

    He's (pretty much) a great guy.

    I did almost get killed in Tijuana with him one night, though.

    How could I hate on a guy who, when I show him my Astros-Rangers O 10.5 ticket, writes:

    By my calculations, with the direction you're heading...we're do for a Roman statue penis pick in about 7 minutes. @Vegasworm can help with the angles and lighting.

    Dude! I just checked into the exact same room at ElCo. The bathroom window is still open. With your hotel room history I’m hoping they gave it a serious deep cleaning after you left...

    It's sad to say but your trip reports are a highlight of my day. Please don't stop writing them! You bring a lot of joy to a lot of people. Might I suggest a la fin du monde for your next beer?
