Just got back from Las Vegas, where I was at SharePoint training for the week. On Friday, Kathleen flew out to meet me and we saw the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon.
This was about a 250 mile drive from Vegas, but worth every mile. We ate at a 50's diner on Route 66, enjoyed burning down highway 93 in a rented ford mustang convertible with the cruise control set at 90, a cool breeze in the air, and not a cloud in the sky. It was, briefly, heaven.
Sunday night we returned to Vegas and got to enjoy such local favorites as the fake Eiffel tower, the Fountains at Bellagio, losing money at gambling, and waiting in huge lines to eat, check in, check out, and do anything else that doesn't involve gambling. Vegas's rule number 1 is: no lines for gambling.
Funs over now though, so its back to work for a couple of days, and then, thanksgiving, black friday, and MORE CHRISTMAS MUSIC. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! (Christmas music makes me nutty!)
