Today, when I was cooking breakfast, I suddenly realized that my egg looked like a giant egg heart and I thought to myself, "Hey, I got to get a picture of that". I officially think my life has reached a new level of boredom. But atleast my breakfast loves me as much as I love to eat it. I wonder what my pancakes will look like tomorrow...

Well as you can see, my leg has been in a little bit of pain the past couple of days. It all started last Tuesday when I got the bright idea to walk to institute. I checked it out on mapquest and it was only a couple of blocks away, but I should know better that "a couple blocks" in Vegas is a huge distance away. I left the house 2 hours early thinking it would be enough time but boy was I wrong. By the time I hit Rainbow street, I started running and did not stop until I reached the institute building. I was about 5 to 10 minutes late but just in time to hear the important stuff since it was the first day. I went online to see how far I had walked and it turns out that I walked 5.1 miles and ran 2.5 miles. I could not believe that I did that. Thank you cross country training. But the story continues. 2 days later I decided to walk to Wal-Mart to get my special lactose free milk. On the way back home my leg started cramping up and it was unbearable to walk. I had to stop and sit down a few times and I wondered if would ever make it home. I just had to dig my heels deep and push through the pain. The next few days I took it easy and limped around everywhere I went. I felt a little embarrassed going to church at singles ward for the first time with a limp, but I just told myself that maybe I would get pity points or something. I've been icing it, massaging it, and putting icy hot on it. I've been smelling icy hot for three days now. In short my leg is feeling better and I don't limp so hard anymore. Whew!

Here's a video of a little midnight stroll.
Oooo... looks like the weather in Vegas is cooling down. In fact, it was cool enough, that it rained a little bit. Still, the rain here is nothing compared to Washington's rain. Vegas has 9 months of great weather and 3 months of heat endurance.

So, being car-less is no fun at all. Especially in Vegas. Walking takes forever, biking is dangerous, and you can't keep mouching rides off of people. So, that leaves transit. I spent a grant total of 6 hours traveling between busing, biking, and transfers. I didn't help that I missed the bus three times and that I had never rode on Vegas transit before. Luckily I wasn't going to a job interview, but only going to visit a friend. But, on the positive side, I met some pretty awesome people on the bus and asked about job openings and got a few referrals. There always something good you can pull from tough situations. Finally, the best thing about Vegas in January is 60 degree weather, wahoo!
