friend from back east, and lots of working

tomorrow i get to go meet aaron buskirk and matt, his buddy, at the train station at 9:20 am, as they disembark from a 2 day train ride out from ohio. they are destined for somewhere different then reno, a bigger city on the west coast, but i hope they will pitstop here for a while. every time i get to see aaron again it's so great, since he left san sebastian in spain where that group of friends met, in a taxi to a bus to the airport in madrid, we've always managed to reunite for new and excellent adventures. i met matt at burningman, he was good people as i had expected, must say i'm a bit jealous of the boys, heading somewhere new to have a go at fun and living, but for me, if i was to do as such, i would have to head back east, which i don't see happening. anyways, halloween forcast is bourbon drinking to semi excess, and hanging out with the raccoon family down at the river. what's great is that they will have bikes, so we can get around so easy.
as for me, i will have my first article published in the reno news and review on thursday, that will be kinda cool, more so because i'm getting paid for it. in addition to that, i'm still delivering pizzas on an oncall basis, working as a busboy at PF Changs, a fancy chinese restaurant that has kickass vegetarian stuff, and starting wednesday i begin training to be a waiter at Chevys texmex fakey mexican food restaurant. it will be hectic, but i have to say that i will feel good to upgrade some of my equipment that is wearing or worn out, i.e. campstove, sleepingbag, mountainbike parts, snowboard boots, ect.., plus it would be novel and sorta comforting to get a couple thousand in the bank to sit on, it's been ages since i've had that. snowboard season is gonna be good, i might try and do a day at copelands sports, which though it would bring my total jobs up to 5, would also allow me acces to the board passes and i could ride all over tahoe, if i had time to do it.
anyways, enough about stuff, i'll link to this photo, which is biting, and to this story, which is funny. poor walmart.
