WHO'S THE LUCKIEST SCHMOE ON EARTH?
NOW IT'S "MORNING IN AMERICA"
We all know what happened on 04 November 2008 so I don't have to say ahything about it.
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
I was sick ,so, I sat alone on election night crying because I couldn't be with my friends at the big Democratic election party at the Rio Hotel.
I wasn't crying because I missed the most important party of my life.
I was crying because I couldn't be with all of my friends.
All of my NEW friends
People say that Las Vegas is a tough town to make "real" friends in. They are right. Just when you make a friend they give up on the dream they thought they had in Vegas and leave town.
I am the luckiest person to have ever moved to Las Vegas, in my opinion. I have made so many new friends here that I feel like I should loan some of them out to the "Friends of the Friendless". I have made so many friends that I know will be friends for the rest of my life. It's almost not fair for me to have this group of people around me. I haven't done anything special to deserve these people in my life. Yet, they are in my life. That can only be luck.
My friends have supported me in all of my endeavours and whims, ups and downs. They have come to me for an old sages' advice and defended me to partners and their own friends who just don't "get" why they know me, "the loser". Any event that I have asked them to help on, they have never failed to lend a hand and be there early so I don't think something I have planned has been a failure, which is a party planners worst nightmare.
We hang out and get drunk at breakfast.. We laugh. We have deep philosophical talks. We help each other pick out dates. We support each other while we're in love. We hate our friends' exes just as much as they do, until they say they're seeing them again. At that point , we start back to supporting their relationship again.
A great man , I believe it was Nelson Tunon or perhaps Craig Curtis, no, wait, It might have been Joan Crawford. Hmm, Nelson said "What's sex without drugs anyway?" I'm sure it was Craig who said "Get drunk. Eat your mother.".
"Friends help friends move. Real friends help friends move bodies."
I have real friends. I don't deserve them. Yet I have them. That's luck.
I want to say thanks to all of them. Of course, I'll forget some of them and feel horrible, but, I'll do my best.

CRAIG CURTIS IS STILL CRAZY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. AND THE MOST CREATIVE GENIUS UNFOUND ON EARTH.
