    And I'm off. I'm going to Vegas tomorrow and won't return until Monday. Going to a wedding (a real one, not one performed by an Elvis impersonator). Should be lots of fun. I have 2 days off afterwords with which to recover. Score. The last time I went to Vegas, I ended up staying awake for 48 hours during the last 2 days (including the flight home).

    Anyway, hope everyone is doing well. See you later:)

    Real weddings can be performed by Elvis impersonators. Don't discriminate!

    Have fun! Try to sleep occasionally.

    Indeed, it turns out my prejudice was unwarranted. The Elvis impersonator was surprisingly poignant during the ceremony. And the reception was a blast.

    On the other hand, sleep is overrated. Plus, that oxygen they apparently pump into the casinos actually works.

    I left on Thursday. My flight was at 11:20 am. Of course, I'm departing out of Philadelphia's airport, so we got in the air somewhere around 1:30 or so. It turns out that we were 30th in line for departure... and after waiting about a half hour, we had to return to the gate for a "medical emergency." Not sure what happened, but apparently a passenger had to get off the plane. Anyway, after that we went right back to the end of the line, though luckily that was only 15th in line for departure.

    So anyway, I get to vegas at around 3:30 (local time - 6:30). Immediately head to the pool, start hanging out, etc... and next thing I know, it's about mindnight and I think to myself, jeeze, it's actuall 3 am back home, and I got up at 8, I better do something about this. That's when the Red Bull and Vodkas started. Anyway, to make a long story short, my internal clock is still royally fucked. My body has no idea what's going on.

    On the bright side, I finished my vacation up about $280. Well, the vacation obviously cost much more than that (everything is so expensive in Vegas), but I was kicking ass at the blackjack table. I broke about even at the sports book, and lost about $5 on slots (I hate slots, I don't know why I even bother. Why do people like slots so much?)

    In all seriousness, the wedding was really nice. It was hot, but it was a dry heat, which is amazing to a easterner like myself. The wedding was at the Four Seasons, which was a great place. The Four Seasons is part of Mandalay Bay, which is where I was staying. It was pretty nice, though it got a little crowded on the weekend (which is to be expected I guess).

    Saw a couple of shows, hung out at the pool, gambled - it was a fun vacation, though I think 4 days is just about as much of Vegas as I could take at one time.

    That's awesome, sounds just like when I went to Vegas...wedding, drinking, not sleeping, the whole nine yards. Glad you had fun! = )

    That sucks about your phone, too. I know that has a whole thread to itself, but I thought I'd kill two birds with one post. Turns out I'm not as verbose as I once was, but apparently I'm making up for it by slaughtering birds.

    foucault's gift to the world is the thinning of the feathered population through combined message board posts. Frankly, I'm impressed.
