A Very Vegas Blogger Confessional©

What a vacation!!! Im still exhausted, after tying to catch up on my sleep, and doing as little as possible, I'm beat.

The trip was VERY exciting, and lots of things happened....The one thing that I noticed about Vegas, is that no matter who you go with, and how many people are there, everyone has a VERY different vacation. So without further adieu....the highlights.

The trip started with me picking up Jennifer from the GO station. As she was loading her bags into my car, she noticed a pack of Big Chew laying on the ground...you know that bubble gum that looks like shredded tobacco? Anyway, she tells me about it. I say "Grab it", not to eat..but for fun. She sits down in the car...and I say "As someone who lives in Toronto, you are well aware that people ALSO put things down for a reason. I dont want it anymore" So she throws it out of the car, back onto the sidewalk and closes the door. I change my mind and say "Nope, grab it." And at this point I notice the tire marks on the back of the pack, and think that it's a funny beginning to the trip. That night, we are out for prevacation drinks, and I think that it's SO funny, that I tell the people im with about it....i guess you had to be there...but Free Big Chew made us laugh really hard. I have NO idea what happened to the pack of it.

The flight was okay....long, but there were stunning views of the Rockies, which Ash got a phenomenal picture of, and we flew right over the Hoover Damn, and Jennifer's good eye caught it...it was a really cool thing to see from that high.

Our first night there, we went to the bar on top of the Palms Hotel. It was on the 55th floor, outside, and had the most amazing view of the city. It was by far, the coolest bar ive ever been to...and the pictures I took out there turned out great.

I DO have to admit that I was ridiculously over enthusiastic about booking this vacation. I didnt realize how much there was to do in Vegas, and didnt realize that of everything that there was to do in Vegas, if you wanted to do half of it, the grand canyon would be impossible time wise. After people started changing their mind about Vegas, I thought that maybe, trying to book two vacations in one, was slightly too much, and we therefore didnt make it. I did feel totally responsible for planting the GC seed in everyones head, and then not going at the last minute, but I think that what we all ended up doing instead made up for it.

Me and "the Bride and Groom" ran into a homeless man holding a sign that said "I wont lie, I need beer". We went to a bar down the street, and bought him a beer each.....he was more than greatful. We watched the pirate show at Treasure Island, rode the Roller Coaster around the New York New York hotel, watched the water show at the Bellagio, saw a little person dressed up as a leprochaun, who then proceeded to jump on the bar and pour shots down the Grooms throat. Im touristed out. Oh, And I saw Carmine Gotti. I recognized him by his hair....

Friday and Saturday, I started drinking my pina colodas at the pool while I tanned at 9:30 am, and drank so many more of them after that....ate some killer food, and got burnt a bit. Not drunk, I wanted to make the most of my days...but I had a great time, and i cant wait to go back. I did SO much while I was there, but left more than half of Vegas to be discovered....

Phil - I posted it so many times so that you could make fun of me....No, kidding...I had my blog open in tabs, and kept posting refreshing the pages on different tabs, with corrections to the post. I didnt realize that it was posting it so many times, and didnt know until I just read your blog. Thanks for pointing it out.

Angel - Thank you thank you...If you are indeed going to Vegas, Make sure you make it to the Ghostbar at the top of the Palms hotel..it's amazing.

Miss Ash said...

I can't wait to see the pics of the leprachaun on the bar :)

Jennifer said...

That leprachaun thing is wrong on so many levels, but right on one level too - everybody loves getting free booze poured down their throat - it doesn't matter who is pouring it.

It sounds like you had a helleva time. At least you didn't have to face any scary creatures in the Grand Canyon.

Princess Pessimism said...

Miss Ash - The ONLY thing that I can do is take a picture of the lepr on the bar with my webcam and send it to you...

Same goes for you Jenni

Berly - YOU are SO right. Although I kept my eyes open for scorpions

Good to know you guys had a blast although I was so looking forward to seeing the GC pics. Surely you didnt mean to Damn Hoover ;)

Sexy Suburbanite said...

It sure didn't seem like you were gone long enough to enjoy Vegas and the GC -- I think you made the right choice when you decided to save that for another trip. Welcome back!
