Back to reality

Vegas at night.


Hey, wasn't I just there?

Home again, home again, jiggety jig.

I had a whirlwind trip full of fun and late nights. Las Vegas is sort of well, weird. Bright flashy lights, half naked people, money, and alcohol to fuel it all. My cousin ran around yelling at the top of her lungs, "I'm f***ing 21!!!" and most people cheered for her.

I ended up staying the hotel with my family because Michelle couldn't do the late night stuff. She works at 6 am. Can't blame her one bit. It was wonderful to see her though.

MGM Grand, where we stayed.

We walked a lot too. Everywhere you wanted to go was a hike. Hell, just leaving the hotel was a long walk. Those places are huge with everything you need right inside of them. There was even a lion habitat inside the MGM Grand.

Michelle suggested we take everyone to dinner at Dick's Last Resort one night. OMG, it was so fun. They give you shit, you give them a hard time and it's really funny. They made big paper hats for us to wear that said obscene things on them. Mine said, "All my toys require car batteries." I think Chris had the best one. At least, I laughed the hardest at his.

Miranda's says, "For my 21st I want all 21 shots to my face." Chris, " I fart KY Jelly."

Then she got a lap dance from fat guy in a g-string called Taco.

I didn't drag my camera with me everywhere. It was hard to get night shots so I left it in the room most of the time. Of course at night you could see some nasty things... like roaches crawling around...

A few of our other adventures include- Swimming in the lazy river with inner tubes. Hoping on the inclinator at the Luxor (the elevator goes at an angle because of the pyramid shape of the hotel). Drinking with some Canadians who apparently love tube steak jokes. Walking ALL the way from our hotel down to Treasure Island to catch the Pirate Show at 11:30 pm.

It was all very fun. I have now had my Las Vegas experience. There were tons of things that we could have done that we missed. I don't know if that means I need to run back there anytime soon but I did want to see some shows and go dancing. I suppose I should mention I also fed a few dollars to the slot machines. They were very hungry.
