Taking the blue AND the red pill

I'll be there.

I just registered for the PDC 2005. It's the third time I'm attending the PDC, I was there in Los Angeles in 2001 and 2003 also. I'll be in LA from the 9th to the 17th of september 2005 and will be attending the two pre-conference days. That gives me 1 day to recover from the jet lag. I haven't decided which flights to book yet.
I will stay at the Figueroa hotel, just like the last time. The Figueroa is a very special hotel, if you've been there you know what I mean. The last time I saw the Figueroa was in an episode of the TV series 'Alias'. In this series, they've used the Figueroa several times as an exotic north african hotel.
Here's a picture of the Figueroa from my PDC2003 visit:

And here's the only picture I have of me at the Figueroa:

Me, myself and I (Nico Vuyge)

I'll be there.
