|||||Linkin Park - What I've Done||]|
My favorite Vegas blogger just wrote tonight and he listed some 'scary things' that he has been through in his life.
And as we are very close in age, and moved to Vegas at the same time? We have things in common. Here is what Rex wrote:
"As someone who has intermittently flown airplanes for the last 25 or so years, I think it’s safe to say that I am not afraid of heights. I think it’s safe to say that I am not a fearful person in general. I was a bike messenger who was hospitalized three times after being hit by vehicles, I’ve owned and ridden motorcycles, I’ve ridden in helicopters, I’ve stood on stages in front of hostile crowds, I surfed in a hurricane and was hospitalized for contusions and lacerations, I’ve been bitten by a shark, I’ve gone up in the CN Tower and every major observation deck in North America, I’ve ridden every roller coaster and thrill ride imaginable, I’ve eaten at the Imperial Palace Buffet, I’ve gone to a Las Vegas physician, I watched a live taping of the Oprah Winfrey Show … many of these things provoke fear in rational human beings … but I took them all in complete stride."
There are a few that match, being bit by a shark is not one, but I ate the Imperial Palace buffet food every day I worked there for 2 and a half years, despite a LOT of co-workers frequently getting sick from it. Be smart about what you eat, if it looks funky, don't risk it. I made the mistake of drinking 11 Long Island Ice Teas in Fracville, PA with Hunt and then snagging 3 tacos from the local Mobil station at 2AM that appeared ORANGE in color and suffered the 'call of the wild', entertaining Hunt in the process.
Just always think it's funny how bad the rep is for my former employers buffet. It's fine. If you see orange taco meat, opt for the meatloaf. If that's not looking good? Ask Ali, the chef to cook you up a 3 egg omelet with cheddar and bacon.
Don't get mad at me now, I want one too now.. UGH
