Something to tide you people over until I actually get home and can make a real entry

Highlights of my trip so far:
  • Met george lucas and francis ford coppola at my bro's wedding...francis is a pretty cool guy.
  • A hot guy literally dragged me onto the dance floor at a nightclub and let me make a fool out of myself, because I can't dance.
  • Uh...I realized just how much New Mexico sucks.
