Just rolled into our usual Friday night spot... it was full of people in PERU jerseys, no one was speaking English and soccer was on every single TV. It's like I stepped into a ****ing nightmare.

US soccer game on ESPN is pretty wild right now, worth checking out even for the soccer haters. Being played in a Denver blizzard.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Vegas Selfie Thread

So here's the story, some of you might have seen my "emergency" post before it vanished. (Thanks for deleting, sincerely)

Cliffs: I'm at the Bridger Inn Hotel at 301 S Main Street, near the Golden Nugget. Real ****box and I think I'm going to get stabbed.

Around noon, my truck broke down. I don't need to tell you that.

Anyway, I called my boss, and I asked him about motels if it so happened that I couldn't sleep in my truck tonight. He's all reassuring, we will take care of you, you will have a motel room and transportation when you arrive in Vegas with the tow truck, just call second shift (severely overworked support shift in Green Bay that covers the whole country, as opposed to my "local" bosses in Portland that go home at 5 PM).

We get to the Freightliner dealer/garage at 6:45 PM, and I find out that they close at 7 PM. They close their high security gates. I am told I cannot sleep in my truck, even though it is just in a normal parking space and is designed for sleeping. I start getting yelled at by multiple people, even though I have been nothing but polite.

I even get turned down on using an outlet to charge my phone. I ask if they will call the cops if I sleep in my truck. They have private security come by every hour or whatever, and I am told yes, they will call the cops. Two different people told me this at different times.

Support shift has no idea that I was going to call them. They try ten different motels, all booked due to basketball. They keep saying they are going to call me back. I am in an industrial wasteland in North Las Vegas, on the street.

I call a cab. They say it will be 90 minutes, and that I will get a call when the cab is near, to confirm. I tell them my phone is dying, and I ask is there any way they can skip the phone call and still pick me up. No, they say. The cab will not pick you up if you do not answer your phone. I told them to put it through anyway, come pick me up.

I walk a half mile or so down the road towards what looks like the exit of this industrial park. Multiple phone calls from support shift with exasperated people, two of whom asked me, "what should we do?" You're the ****ing support shift, Jesus Christ. My phone is at 3%.

Somehow there is this Best Western, way out of place. I walk in, and I think I am charging my phone. Turns out I wasn't; my wall charger is broken but my phone still had the charging graphic. Anyway, I explain my situation to the front desk. She calls a cab for me. It will be an hour. I still don't know where the cab will take me. The Wynn is the only hotel that I know is nice and is huge enough they've gotta have some room for me if I break out my emergency credit card, and ****, I'll just have to beat my company into submission to reimburse me the $500 or a thousand bucks or something. I have to accept this cab, what other choice do I have.

I had turned my phone off when I figured out it wasn't charging. I decide to risk turning my phone on again to see if I have a voicemail from support shift. Turns out I do, and they found me a hotel and have booked a room. I hear the name and the address, think, oh, downtown, I heard they're redoing that, must be swanky, and we had talked about how they better damn well put me up at the Wynn or some other $400 a night place if that's all that is available.

While I'm in voicemail, the cab from the first time calls me and tells me he's 5 minutes away. I tell him great, I'm going to turn my phone off, I'm here at the Best Western at this address instead of the Freightliner dealer. I tell him I'm going to turn my phone off now, he says that's OK.

I tell the front desk lady I need to cancel the cab she called. No problem.

I wait outside for 20 minutes, no cab. I turn the phone back on and call, repeating the address, and the cab driver says, "I thought you canceled?" I say, no, I'm here, I am not moving, please pick me up, I will give you a huge tip. Just pick me up. He says Best Western, right? I say yes, he starts to say something and my phone turns itself off mid syllable, no battery.

So I'm 17 hours into my day, and the last 15 minutes starting right then feel like 34 hours. No phone. Not sure what cab driver said.

Anyway, I'm now in the ghetto at my hotel. I told this story horribly and there was a lot more but I'm so goddamn tired.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Vegas Selfie Thread

since you all were so into my costco inquiry...

i met a girl in Vegas last weekend - we started talking at a bar, then we both got separated from our friends and wound up walking down fremont for a little while, hitting it off pretty well - lots of HANDHOLDING and whatnot

eventually my brother shot me a text indicating that he was ready to head back to the strip. so now i had to end it with her for the night since we were in town for his bachelor party. i wound up walking her back to her friends at their hotel, got a little peck goodnight and the "hey we should hang out tomorrow"

we traded a couple more texts that night and then i sent her a "hey you should come down to the strip tonight" the following afternoon - no response

since i knew we were both in SoCal, i decided to look her up on facebook tonight and found her - it wasn't just Vegas, she's pretty attractive!

sooooooo, do i text her? add her on facebook and send her a message? little of column a, little of column b?
