Vegas Part Deux

As Nonnahs said, we had a lot of fun, but were very glad to be home. I kept feeling like I couldn't breathe the whole weekend. I just had this uncontrolable urge to be outside the whole time we were in Vegas. Fortunately for us is wasn't a 1000 degrees. And we did manage to get out to some fresh air a couple times. Although, in our attempt to find some place outside to eat, we ended up at the Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace (did you know they make spiral escalators?) and had the pleasure to see a chubby Boba Fett.

This made me so happy :-) The real Boba Fett and Jabba the Hut were there signing autographs. A few other giggles were also had while we stood behind a crew of a dozen or so prom-goers trying to get reimbursed for their cancelled Le Reve show tickets (or should I say 12 teenagers trying to reach a unanimous decision - Ha!) and while making possible dinner reservations at the "Pasta Pirate" (need I say more?).

So here are a couple pictures of our Henna tattoo experience. This is the artist tattooing Nonnahs's right hand.

The interesting part was that after the green paste was applied and dried, you couldn't get it wet for 8 hours. Something that would have been good to know before we chose to so this on a hot Saturday afternoon in Vegas before a crab dinner. But look how pretty...

This is what the designs looks like while we still had the dried henna paste on. The paste then gradually flaked off, leaving the rusty, reddish tattoo behind. The tattoo is supposed to last for about 2-3 weeks, or until the skin has completely regenerated. Pretty cool! I am thoroughly impressed by the artist who free-handed both of our designs, including the circle within a circle on Nonnahs' hand!

Oh, don't forget: we think that the new Vegas trick is to pump bacon smell into the guest rooms of the hotels in the morning.
