"I couldn't see you because of all the teenage girls."

Here's hoping I'll have to use that phrase with Jack someday.

My friend, Mr. Urban Blight, is in town for refresher training for his job. (He's a crash sled technician.) He got in on Sunday and after running around doing gooby train stuff we all went to dinner Sunday night. (Las Margaritas of course. It's right here. If you're local and haven't gone yet you need to.) After dinner we retired to the basement to put paid to various forms of alien life via Halo 2.

I had forgotten how funny UB can be. When I went to pick him up at the hotel this week for dinner I pulled up to the lobby door of the hotel but three vans of teenage girls, here for some sort of state competition, were unloading. I pulled to the curb, parked and got out only to see him fighting through the crowd. He grinned, used the line above and then said some other scandelous things that caused the girls to giggle, the Chaperones to scowl and made me realize I'm surrounded by some very funny people.

The good news is that my train layout met with UB's approval. I think I've said before he's the zen master of layouts but don't take my word for it. Check out his work in progress: Mr. Urban Blight's webpage.
