Las Vegas!

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

My cousin is getting married, so I’m in Las Vegas for today and tomorrow. ¬†The last time I was here was 2001 for the USC vs. Utah game. ¬†Despite the construction along the strip, we walked from Mandalay Bay up to the Bellagio.

I’ve never been to Vegas with friends–only with family. ¬†This is no exception. ¬†My father is sick with the flu, and my mother, being my mother, feeds off the¬†negativity of his illness. ¬†During the entire time from when we arrived at the hotel (1pm or so) until now (5:30pm), she couldn’t stop talking about anything and everything she could think of–from new hotels, smoking, tattoos, the M&M store, funny looking people…ugh.

Anyway–I can’t wait to come back here WITHOUT the family. ¬†I think the experience would be much better.

Nothing’s better at a birthday party than a good cake.

And yes, this picture was posted without their permission. ¬†If they don’t like it, I’ll have to censor their faces out. That’ll be interesting…

Happy Singles’ Awareness Day!

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

It’s been a long while since I’ve celebrated Valentine’s Day. ¬†As I recall, it was back in 2002, and at Ruth’s Chris. ¬†That relationship ended rather badly.

So today’s schedule involved going to bed at 4:00am, and waking up at 11:00am. ¬†I love weekends.

On a totally separate note: this is the first posting on my new blog. ¬†I’m going to try to keep it as up-to-date as possible. ¬†And yes, I know I’ve had a blog before, and no, I’m not going to link to the old posts. ¬†This is a clean slate. ¬†We’ll see how it goes.
