OK, I am now about to piss off some of my very closest and bestest.
Would you PLEASE put your fucking FancyPhones down when you are being talked to?
Is it too much to ask to have you engage with the rest of the world for , oh, about 15 minutes or so without the latest Facebook updates from your "friend" in Uzbeiolia?
Would it kill you to actually taste that $15 cocktail just laid down in front of you by the person who is now glaring at the top of your head as you bury your face in ,well, NOTHING?
OK, I'm old, but, I do remember , not so very long ago, when my friends and I would go out and hold witty, semi-literate convos about everything from politics to how fat Belinda from The Go Go's had gotten. We managed to do this without making sure somewhere on the other side of town wasn't having having a better time with their $199 idiot box.
Now, I feel like I'm in some virtual social Pinball machine getting bounced back and forth between places I'm not even at.
Let's be honest, it's RUDE. I can only think of two reasons to spend all of your time on a fancy phone or texting away like a Squirrel on Meth. You either have nothing to say, or nothing to add to the conversation.
Either way, why are you taking up a seat?
Btw, If someone wanted to prove me wrong about this epidemic of callous and decidedly boorish behavior, I'll take one in white with a red cover.

Ever so often, a free meal and a Bottle of the potatoes just fall right into the lap of yours truly.
Tonight is one of those nights!
AND I have an outfit! My look is sorta V Magazine meets James Dean with a stop along Malcolm Mclaren way. You know, modern Buffalo Boy. I might even spray my hair!
It seems that tonight I'm being honored along with several other denizens of this hot little burgh as "The Power of 20"!
Sumptuous, the evening promises to be. It will begin with a reception (lavish, no doubt) at STACK Restaurant at the Luxurious Mirage Resort. After I eat everything not nailed down...uh, I mean...we will then retire to VIP tables and the aforementioned Potato Juice at REVOLUTION LOUNGE.
Honey, if you haven't been to Revolution, well, you simply, haven't.
Really. I swear.
This night of Glamour comes courtesy of the best VIP Team in town, Eric Zawid, Jason Baca and The Light Group along with Super Chic (and hella cute) Ultra Promoter Eduardo Cordova.
Of course, no event in town worth it's salt(and this one is worth a lot of salt)happens without a lending hand from Q Vegas Magazine.
Have you noticed how Q Vegas has steadily moved itself into a position as a "premium" magazine? I have. The days of being something you just glanced at in a club are gone. The Q is well on it's way to being "our" 944 or Vegas magazine. And we should have an upscale, intelligent magazine documenting what goes on here Las Vegas. Kudos.
Well, I know you're dying to know who the other 19 folks being honored are, well, here goes:
TV ANCHOR CHRIS SALDANA (he's cute)
HARRAHS CORP'S GWEN MIGITA (has kept me from having my head explode on more than one occasion)
HARRAHS EXEC JAMES HEALEY (very tall that one, very tall)
FORMER MAYOR AND MAJOR GAMING EXEC JAN JONES (Hot. It's not sexist if a Gay guy says it)
WYNN/ENCORE'S JOHN MCCOY (have you been to XS? OH MY GAWD CHANDLER BING!)
CELEBRITY STYLIST KIM VO! (J'adore him! I'm so filling him with potato juice and getting ALL the dirt from LaLa!)
DIVA LARRY EDWARDS (That's Miss Larry, if you're Glamourous!)
THE LADY DJ / PROMOTER LISA PITTMAN (She rules)
THE MAN SPREADS GOOD HEALTH AND HALF NAKED BOYS ALL OVER THE VEGAS VALLEY MALCOLM AHLO OF CRUSH ( Adorable, that one!)
TAO/LAVO IS REPPED BY THE INIMITABLE MIKE SNEDEGAR
CULTURE , SWEETIE, CULTURE, IS ON HAND WITH ARTIST NICK SAN PEDRO ( I used to drive to San Pedro for a boy, or was it a fish taco place? Or was it a boy named Nick in El Monte who worked at a place that sold fish tacos? Ah. The 90's Don't remember them at all.)
BLOWN OUT PRODUCTIONS OWN PETER JOBSON IS ON HAND AFTER A SUCCESSFUL RUN OF THE HILARIOUS CHICO'S ANGELS! (Cute in a real "Courtship of Eddie's Father" sorta way.)
THOSE POLITICAL MUCKY MUCKS STATE SENATOR DAVID PARKS OF NEVADA AND THE BOB FORBUSS ARE BEING HONORED AS WELL (You wanna talk Nevada politics, and who doesn't, talk to Forbuss!)
THE CUTE AS A BUG STEVE ERICS IS BEING HONORED AS WELL (He puts the diversity in @ SNAPI)
THAT NAUGHTY SIN CITY SISTER SYBRINA BERNABEI WILL BE THERE AS WELL (Wonder what the confession booth and some potato juice will bring forth?)

I hope you can come by and join us all tonight as we celebrate just being friends and a community.
