Sin City...We're on our Way.


Its been a while since i've been on vacation. I went to Ft. Lauderdale 2 years ago almost to visit a friend, and hung out at her hotel-esque condo and tanned for a week while she worked. Then last year, I was living in the states, in MA...and alternate weekends, I travelled to New York City, and Boston..but those arent really vacations, since NYC was usually a day trip...And when I was going to NY for day trips every 2 weeks, I was getting bored of the city, as I never had any strong ties to a daily schedule there. I only went to shop. But now that I dont go every 2 weeks, I miss it rediculously.

Maybe last January, I started talking about how I wanted to go to the Grand Canyon. I mentioned the idea to Miss Ash, and although, at first, she laughed. I started stealing travel magazines from my gym, and buying books about the Grand Canyon, she started coming around to the idea...and we talked a lot about maybe going May 2006. I passed the idea around to a few other friends, and we were all pretty excited about going.

Skip ahead to June 2005. Our friend Heather meets a guy. Within a few months, they're living together....then get engaged. The wedding Venue? Las Vegas.

So we're headed to Las Vegas for our friends wedding. And since I was the one who planted the "lets go to the Grand Canyon" seed in everyone's head, it was the first thing I mentioned. I dont quite know what our itinerary is, except for the wedding day. DESPITE what Ashley says...I have nothing planned yet.

Has anyone ever been to Vegas before? Everone says that the hotels will keep us preoccupied for days on end. Jenny wants us to go to something called the "Star Trek Convention"...Whatever that is....I dont know, but it sounds totally nerdy to me. She ALSO suggested that since we have another friend of ours going, who's a firey red head, that she can be Ginger, I can be Mary-Anne and Jenny wants to be Lovey...complete with parasol AND gloves.

Our token "Ginger" wants to get a new tattoo at Hart and Huntington, which I want to be there for...those guys who work there are rediculously hot. Our token "Lovey" wants to wander the streets and go to the Star trek thing....Uhh...Okay. And then there's me. The token "Mary-Anne"....who only wants to go to the grand canyon.....but whether or not we go, is still up in the air.

I mentioned taking a one day bus trip to the G.C. Jenny says there are too many loud and obnoxious people on bus tours. I said that the only way to combat that, is to become the loudest and most obnoxios person on the bus...which I am totally prepared to do. But we're thinking we may rent a car instead.

We have ALL agreed that whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. As i've heard that is the rule. Jenny decides to kill someone? We're all in to dig a shallow grave in the desert. Questionable sexual advances including monetary suplement? No problem. If we arent soliciting, we didnt do anything wrong.....One of us gets drunk, and married? The others will help us register when we get back to Canada. But whatever it is....Its in the vault.

I think I can be Mary-Anne...but my hair's too long for pigtails.

Princess Pessimism said...

Yrautca - Thanks. Funny thing? I dont gamble....but I love going to the casino. Believe me or not, I usually Find money when I go to the casino...its happened a couple of times now, that I go, and just find money in machines that people forgot to take. My friend Tim laughs at me, becuase he cant imagine anyone Ever finding money at a coasino, nevermind more than once.

PX - Ya you were saying. Want me to send you a postcard?

Px said...

hell yeah i do!

Princess Pessimism said...

I figured as much....LOL.

Tai said...

Hey, you can book a helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon, that's always fun.
(expensive, but heck, it's a holiday, right!?)

Vegas is a hoot.
I swear you can just stand around on a street corner and be entertained!

Princess Pessimism said...

Tai - It's a Hoot? LOL...you're too funny. I've heard that there is a load to do...I'm dreading the star trek thing. LOL

angel, jr. said...

Vegas is soooo the place to get married! Everyone wins!

Miss Ash said...

PP Melissa and I were watching Trekkies the other night and we're going to look for the next convention in TO to go to for a good laugh.

Princess Pessimism said...

Angel - Yes. I agree...the only question I had was "Fat Elvis or Thin Elvis?"

Miss Ash - I KNEW IT!!!! I KNEW IT ALL ALONG....

Trib said...

You should go to the trek convention and then report back to us. I'm too afraid to go myself. What if I made the Vulcan sign wrong? I'd be lynched!

cristal said...

I hope you have fun! We're going to Vegas next month too, i can't wait! The only other time i've gone i was like 6 months pregnant, so all i could really do was gamble, so it wasn't that fun. I plan to get fucked up and blow some money playing Black Jack!

slopmaster said...

I'll meet you there and we'll get married. When I went there* I tried to meet a girl to marry, but the ones that would have gotten married were not marriage material.

You should definitely go see the Grand Canyon. It's kinda cliche just because it seems like its just a big ditch, but it's worth it. I'm glad I did it.

Thanks for checking out my blog :)

*Here are my posts on my visits if you're interested.

The Grand Canyon is Beautiful. I would recomend to go really early to warch the sunrise. you get in free, and you get to see a beautiful sunrise.

Princess Pessimism said...

Trib - What the hell is a vulcan? Oh, and i'll DEFINITELY report back about my many adventures in vegas.

Slopmaster - You wanna get married...Thats awesome. I'll be there. You can email me and we'll work out the details. LOL.

Katie - thats totally true. Id love to be obnoxious on purpose

Anonymous - Ohh...i'd love to do that. So pretty...although, is it just as nice over the desert?

I love Las Vegas. I stayed at Treasure Island the first time and then some other place further out the second time I went.

There is great shopping (Fashion Mall), amazing shows - go see any of the Cirque de Soliel stuff and the Bellagio (I think) has a pretty good art museum.

When you are gambling you get free drinks which is awesome. Basically you can wonder the streets and there is always craziness going on. The hotels are constantly trying to top eachother. I've heard the new hotel "Wynn" is worth checking out as well - supposed to be pretty amazing.

If you have a car and can venture from the strip there are some great outlets malls too.

Favorite Vegas moment: walking up to a poker machine, sitting down and there was $100 already on it (the machine malfunctioned) - they paid me because they said they have to - that was cool.

Princess Pessimism said...

Rawbean - someone just told us to get a car and go to the outlets. Isnt that funny?

Px said...

if i could have more than a postcard i'd want that too
hell i'd be there if i could afford it :P

Sexy Suburbanite said...

I have never been to Vegas but it looks like a blast. I love your dress up idea =)

I think you will need more time at the Grand Canyon than a 1-day bus tour would provide. It is kind of a hike from Vegas, so by the time you got there I'm thinking you wouldn't have much time at the Canyon. But, I've never been there before either so what do I know? Have fun!

berly02 said...

Vegas is gonna be so much fun.
I am totally jelous.

Lindsey said...

You're gonna have so much fun!! Cathy and I were talking about planning a trip to Vegas sometime later this year. I need to save money first.

Natalia said...

Yaay vegas....I so would like to go :)

-N

Princess Pessimism said...

PX - that doesnt surprise me...greedy bitch. LOL

S.Subs - I was thinking that too...its like a 3-5 hour drive depending on what part you go to. Its a long long day, and wed have to leave REALLY early and get back late....I still dont know if we're going But I'd like to

Berly - werent you just on vacation visiting friends? I love vacationing. Its so nice to get away.

Linny - Our trip is not costing very much at all...its surprisingly cheap to go to vegas.

Natalia - You're a home owner now...thats going to be like a vacation....those condos look like a resort. LOL

Hernesto G said...

sometimes what happens in vegas does not stay there. like if you get teh AIDS

Jennifer said...

PP, did you say that you were going to report back what happens? I thought you said what happens in Vegas, says in Vegas! I think you are the weak link here when it comes to keeping your trap shut.
Months down the road, we're going to be having an innocent conversation about ditch digging and all of a sudden you're going to say something like, "Remember that time we were all digging that shallow grave in the desert? After I Dawn fucked that guy and I killed him for his wallet? Digging in the desert is hard work!"

Princess Pessimism said...

OHHH...Jenny....You're SO bad. I would very much LIKE to say something right now, but will refrain from doing so. As i swore that I would never tell. But I will email you, reminding you of the event, and expect a FULL public apology about me being the weak link for keeping my "trap shut"

Jennifer said...

OK, so PP just threatened that she would tell a secret that we both agreed never to speak of again, in order to make me appologize for saying that she has trouble keeping secrets.
What's that all about. I think she proved my point!

Jennifer said...

Oh I forgot my appology, I'm sorry I said you have a big mouth, please don't tell our secret now.

Princess Pessimism said...

you're evil you know.
