When I moved to Las Vegas, I thought I'd be getting a visitor at least every two weeks or so. After all, when I told my friends I'd be living here, the most common response I got was "Great! I'll definitely come visit you." The fact that most of these very same people had made a trip to Vegas in the six months before telling me that, made me think they actually would come visit. Somehow, this isn't the way it has worked out at all. My only visitors so far have been my girlfriend and my mother. Oh, and my friend Joe, but that doesn't really count since he lives here anyway and was only in town because he had been displaced from his med school for a month after Katrina.
This weekend, however, that is all about to change. I will finally have an actual visitor, my college friend Aaron. Also, Joe will be in town, and so will FJDelgado, who I'll be meeting for the first time. All of us play poker, although at somewhat different levels. If necessary, we could probably all agree to play 15-30 limit, but more likely, I think we'll just have a drink at the bar. In any case, I'm looking forward to finally having some different people around. Then I head back home for Christmas, and then back to Vegas with Brigid and my brother.
