peace and games

Yesterday at noon Elaine and I joined a demonstration against war on Iraq on the strip. We started at the Bellagio, in front of the fountains, stayed for a while listening (or not) to speeches, then headed down the strip. We did a loop, came back, and it seemed like more poeple joined as we went along. Some estimated about 600 people. I wouldn't be surprised if there were more. For Las Vegas, that's actually meaningful. It's not a town that gets into these kinds of things.

Later, the birthday! Mary bought me a carrot cake, I made a stew, I opened my presents. I got a nice weekly calendar book and a couple of little things from Joey, bought by his dad (very nice of him!),and Mary and Elaine got me...yes!!...the Law and Order computer game! It's great! I love it! I am not a real computer game player but this is right up my alley. I get to be a detective and go through tons of investigation and then I become the assistant district attorney if I actually am able to make an arrest, and take it through the trial. I have started two games already and know I am goofing up. It is going to take some time to get through this. What a terrific time waster! Hot damn!

Today, I meet Elaine's new bf for coffee. Later, don't know. Maybe a trip to a new thrift shop.
