I Deny It All

So I just got back from a work trip to Las Vegas. And really, for a work trip, I had an AH-Mazing time. I met up with a bunch of friends that I haven't seen for a long time, and made a bunch of new friends. If there's anything I can't have too many of, it's friends that live in exotic places around the world. The food was great, the hotel was AH-Mazing (complete with AH-Mazing marble bathtubs and turn down service with MINTS!), and the casino only shanghaied me out of $5. Good times, good times.

But even with all of the good times, there are still some things that should definitely stay in Vegas. Such as .......
  • Seeing one of the male Sr. VPs watching Charmed while running on the treadmill. Come on now, we all watch Charmed from time to time ... but we don't admit it, and we should never do it in public.
  • The animatronic show at Caesar's Palace. It was horrible. They could learn a thing or two from Chuck-E-Cheese.
  • Dancing like a fool at the opening social. I wish I could blame doing really bad air guitar (twice) on the booze. But I can't. I'm just hoping everyone else really took advantage of the open bar and can't remember.
  • Singing along with every song at a piano bar. It was a DUELING piano bar, so maybe that makes it better. But probably not.
  • Seeing some Ladies of the Night trolling for business in the hotel bar. Got me some edumacation there, I'll tell ya.
In the category of things I'm happy to replay in my memory, I saw the fountain at the Bellagio, and I think I might like that better than fireworks. BETTER THAN FIREWORKS!!! That's serious love.

Sounds like you had a truly Vegas experience. Although I don't know about Charmed...

Red Rock is the best hotel in Vegas, you lucked out. Did you have the flatscreen tv over your bathtub?

Did you point at the fountains with you toes and make all the appropriate ohhhhhh's and ahhhhhh's?
If not, you don't like it as much as fireworks. SO DON'T BLASPHEME!

Oh Daniel, Believe me. If I hadn't been standing on my feet my toes would have been pointing VIGOROUSLY! At one point I wished I were laying down so I could point with them.

But even without the toe-pointing, there was A LOT of ooooooh-ing and aaaaahhh-ing. I fell hard for the Bellagio fountain. It's true love.

I completely agree about that bellagio fountain! Love!
If only they didn't have all the porn scattered about. That puts a damper on the fun.
