Cooking Jobs In Atlanta. One Day Cooking Classes In Tuscany. Cooking Games 2011 Online.
So around 4:30 or 5:00 a.m. I went in to the Sahara to use the restroom and warm up for a little bit. On the way out a man held the door open for me and asked where I was walking to. I said to the Stratosphere. He said he'd walk with me and introduced himself as Langston. He was polite, clean, not drunk, and well-spoken. He said he was homeless and I don't remember how it came up but I asked him when it was the last time he ate and he said it was the day before. I asked him if there was a restaurant around and I'd buy him some food and we could warm up too. It was only 28 degrees. We went into Denny's. I told him to get anything he wanted and he wondered what to get. I always order Moons Over My Hammy when I go there, so I suggested that to him and that's what he ordered. He said he was 49 and had been in Vegas for 5 months and had moved from Atlanta, Georgia. He was trying to get a job as a cook because of all the hotels being built, but then the construction stopped and now apparently there isn't any work. I told him about me and why I was there in Vegas. He was very intuitive about me and wise. It was an interesting connection, and I am always left wondering why I always "find" these people or they "find" me. He didn't want to take advantage or be a pain in the neck to me, but he asked if he could spend the day with me. I had told him the things I wanted to see (the pawn shop on Pawn Stars and the Andre Agassi school and the Welcome to Las Vegas sign). So we talked in the restaurant until about 7 a.m. Then we went to the Stratosphere to see what time the observation tower opened. It didn't open until 10 a.m. The buses were free until 9 a.m. so we decided to get on the bus and he took me to the pawn shop. Then we found out where the school was and went to see that. We also went in to a souvenier shop so I could buy some postcards to send back to my friends and family. He also offered to carry one of my bags, so I let him. After I got the postcards we got on the bus to go see the school. (I have another story about why I wanted to see the school and I will tell that later.) After we saw the school I wanted to get Starbucks. He didn't want coffee but he saw a KFC and said he hadn't had chicken since he had been in Vegas. I offered to buy him some chicken. We went to KFC and he had 4 drumsticks and 2 biscuits. I still hadn't had anything to eat because I had pizza at the Flamingo food court (prior to meeting him) and I wasn't hungry yet. We made our way back to the Stratosphere and passed Fremont Street on the way back. I told him I wanted to spend some time alone later (when I checked into my motel) in the day but we could meet later to go down to Fremont street. Back at the Stratosphere I offered to buy him a ticket to go up the tower. He didn't want to go because it was too high up, but he wanted to wait in the sportsbook and watch t.v. He said sometimes he falls asleep while he watches the t.v. He told me to go and take my time and he'd wait in the sportsbook. He was also pleading with me not to ditch him. I told him I wouldn't. So he gave me a hug and went to the sportsbook. I went to the tower (I have stories about the tower too, meeting a couple stars up there) and spent about an hour and a half up there. When I came back down I went to the area he said he would be. I didn't see him. I went and did some souvenier shopping and mailed my postcards that I wrote while in the Stratosphere tower. I came back around and looked in two more areas that had tv's and didn't see him. So I went on my way feeling a little guilty like I didn't look hard enough for him. But I'm wondering if he got kicked out because he fell asleep. I don't know. But today I wrote a little note to the Salvation Army and mailed it off. I asked them if they had any way of contacting him. He had showed me his homeless ID and it was from the Salvation Army. Don't know what will happen. And I don't know why this is important to me. But I want him to know I didn't ditch him, like he was worried about. He told me his birthday was 12/25. While we were on the bus I said how do I know you're not an angel. He said he is, because of the day he was born on. And he said I was a blessing to him. I never felt scared around him, but I was cautious. I tend to be a "sucker" for nice people and tend to get taken advantage of, even though I want to help. But it makes me wonder, was he really real? I have a long list of reasons for going out to Vegas by myself. And the two places I wanted to see that weren't on the Strip apparently aren't in the best areas of town. So I really am questioning if he is or was a real person. Or was he an angel watching out for me while I was there?I've been tagged!
I've been tagged--thanks MOM! so anyway, my 16 random facts are here. And...I'll be tagging some of you! 1. I'm born again, bought and paid for by my Savior, Jesus Christ. He's my life and everything that I live for. 2. I have one wonderful, handsome son who never ceases to amaze me with the smart little things he says. 3. I have 2 beautiful nieces (Maddie--12, Belle--6) and 1 very handsome nephew (Ayden--almost 10 months old). I don't get to spend enough time with them...I wish I could see them every day! 4. My mom is my hero. I didn't appreciate her when I was a child/teen, but as I've grown older and realized the sacrifices she made...well, I just pray that I can be just half of the woman that she is. 5. My very best friend (a.k.a. "sister" sometimes) is actually my ex-husbands sister. Our friendship actually blossomed after the divorce. I look forward to talking to her every day and enjoy spending time with her every chance I get. 6. I'm a nurse in surgery. I was a surgical technologist for 6 years before I finally became an RN. I did some clinical rotations in many areas during school. While they were all awesome, surgery has always been what I love. I thank God every day for me--not a job, but an occupation that I look forward to going to every day. 7. I love taking pictures. I’ve always enjoyed looking at other people’s pictures, even if I don’t know the people in them. Something about looking at other people’s memories helps to get to know them. I like taking pictures of anything, but I love landscape pictures the most. 8. I’m not well-traveled. I’ve never been out of the US. I’ve only been to nine states. Texas—vacation with Mary; Oklahoma—family reunion; Missouri—Tina lives there; Louisiana—vacation to New Orleans; Arkansas—I live there; Florida—convention/vacation in Orlando; Georgia—convention in Atlanta; Tennessee—my dad used to live there; New York—vacation when Tina lived there (my favorite—by far!—vacation!) 9. I’m learning to cook a little. I never have liked it in the past, but I’m learning. 10. I don’t like to fight or argue. I’ll walk away and just keep it to myself. Until I’ve had enough. Then I blow. 11. I love flickr. 12. Purple is my favorite color. 13. I use a Canon Rebel xTi. I love my camera. 14. I tried the project 365 once. I didn’t do so well. 15. I like worship music and contemporary Christian music. My fav lately is Tenth Avenue North. 16. One thing I hate about myself is that I HATE housework. I like a clean house, but I don’t like working for it…It’s never clean enough (IMO) for drop-in company…
