Leaving Las Vegas

Dis and I were in Sin City this past weekend for a work retreat. Let your mind wander (wonder) - it's okay, I'll wait. We had fun, despite the fact that no big windfall of money was won, because we were together (we deeply missed Nasus, but she was there in spirit). We stayed here, had a delectable dinner here, and saw this show. We tried to see this show, but alas, they were experiencing technical difficulties, so the shows on Saturday night were cancelled. Too bad, too, because we were looking forward to comparing two Dragone water-themed shows. Plus, one of our former clients used to perform in one, and is now in the other. Oh well, maybe next time. Oddly enough, we didn't knit all weekend! What? Crazy, but true. The one block of time we really had time to sit and knit, we couldn't, due to henna-stained hands. (Pictures to follow later.)

Usually (99% of the time) I am sad when a vacation, weekend, etc. comes to an end. For some reason, however, I'm always ready to leave Vegas. This isn't to say that I don't have fun while I'm there, because I had a good time, but after a couple of days living in what feels like a giant ashtray amongst drunken mayhem, bachelor/bachelorette parties and many pairs of exposed breasts, I don't know about you, but I was ready to go home and take a shower!

I plan to get back on track with my knitting now that I'm back in the real world, so I should have some knitting content updates to share soon. Meanwhile, today is all about trying to stay awake. "Happy" Monday, everyone!

I always find myself ready to leave Vegas, too. It's fun, but it's so incredibly overwhelming and crazy. How far is it from SD?

I love Las Vegas, but am also glad to leave. Living in a giant ashtray is a good description! Glad you both a good time!

I haven't been to Vegas for AGES!! Sounds fun to me. Sorry you didn't win a boat load of money. Here's hoping you didn't lose much either!
