Saturday, under protest, I was dragged out to Weho yet again. I really wanted to just veg or find something else to do. But Lukas was in town from Fresno and insisted I entertain him that evening. I repeatedly told him I was not going out, but he kept calling. Finally he asked if he could just come over and hang out until he goes out. Of course I said yes. This was a trap. Once here, he was relentless in getting me out of the house, even dressing me. Finally I capitulated and off we went to Rage.
Once there I had a pretty good time. Ran into Stace, JJ, Joey, and Dave (im_confused). And of course, Patrick (phelixdakat) and I reintroduced ourselves from our hazy memories of meeting at Rush several weeks ago.
Now, Rage has had these Borg-regeneration-like things on the walls since Paul E redecorated the place so many years back. They're a bit tired, but they don't bother me so much at the club as much as they remind me of what pathetic set props they used on Voyager. Jebus. Could they have been less lazy than grabbing the first thing they found at Spencers? Ok, now that I've gotten that off my chest...
As I'd expected, Lukas would want to end up doing after hours and wanted me to bounce with him. Not wanting to spend the entire night out, I decided to stay at Rage and find another way home. Fortunately, Dave volunteered to give me a ride. After closing, we went over to the Abbey for the sidewalk sale, and ran into these lovely creatures on the left. The one on the left is the one who entertained/traumatized me on my bday. Unfortunately my phone doesn't take good pics in the daytime, much less at night. But I think you can get the general idea here.
Now I'm off to try to get everyone together to head to Sunset Junction.
