★ Vegas

Went to Vegas this past weekend. We (Rochelle, Joe, Mirabel, Ronald, Heidi, and I) stayed at Harrah’s for the low price of free. We ate at the World Buffet at the Rio. I had two plates of crab legs but I could’ve gone back for 2 or 3 more plates, easily.

After that, we danced the night away at Rain. But the best part of the night was waiting in line. Yes. In line. Apparently another event was going on at the outdoor pool lounge right next to Rain and a bunch of celebrities were present. We saw Daryl Hannah, Donald Faison (Clueless, Scrubs), Robin Leech, Jerry Rice, Jason Biggs (American Pie), Taye Diggs, Dennis Hopper, Josh Hartnett, Rick Yune (Fast and the Furious), Stephen Baldwin, Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville), and Benicio Del Toro (Traffic, The Usual Suspects). Since we were first in line for Rain, we were bumping shoulders with these stars, literally. Ok, not all of them, just Robin Leech. Oh and Justin Timberlake, Vin Diesel, and Black Eyed Peas were “supposedly” at the club during the course of the night.

Aside from the traffic caused by Mr. Timberlake, the trip was fun and probably the best Vegas trip I’ve had.

★ Senior Display Day

Today was Senior Display Day. All the senior projects that everyone was working on throughout the year was out on display in the Engineering Plaza. I felt that we had the best project on display out there. From our fashionably late, but stylish entrance, to our jumping off stairs, we had the most impressive project out there. Formula SAE also had an impressive display once they got the car running.

★ Spring Quarter Update

So here’s what’s up:
• “The Beast” is alive and healthy. We drove it around Aldrich Park a couple times. If you walk through the park and notice numerous tire tracks in the grass, you know where it came from. Painted it over the weekend in preparation for Display Day.
• Saw Arsenio Hall in LA on Friday.
• APhiO banquet on Saturday. Fun stuff, impressive venue. The afterparty was just as fun. My new drinking strategy. Work up a good buzz and sip to maintain it.
• Just finished my last lab write up as an undergrad.
• The fact that I’m graduating still hasn’t hit me. Is that a good thing, or a bad thing?
