Four nights in Vegas are about all one's sanity can take...  
Just got back from a Friday-through-Monday bachelor party weekend in Las Vegas.

To say that fun was had would be an understatement.  Not sure I was ever 100% sober from the first hour we arrived until about 12:00 AM PST this morning (when our flight left). And amazingly, I think I almost broke-even on the gambling front for the weekend. I consider that a success. 

And that's about all I can disclose... you know the expression.

Now I'm on the harsh come-down, trying to recover for work tomorrow. And I've got some Friday-Monday TV with which to catch up. Will also try to flist-read some, and sort through gobs of email.
But since I've been awake for about 28 hours straight, I think I'm off to go nap for a bit.

Kristen Bell is awesome.

So glad you had a good time my dear, you deserve it. We must talk this weekend about many, many things. I'll leave the Vegas integrations until vacay though. *snoggins*

Yeah, I should be free sometime Saturday or Sunday to chat. I'm about ready to submit the leave time at work (the period for the next six months starts in March), and I'm hoping there's no conflict - we've had so many people leave/retire, there aren't as many bodies to fill in the office. We'll see.

I've actually had to call in sick the last two days, because I apparently picked up a flu bug or something as we were leaving Vegas, or likely on the plane. Wednesday I woke up with a chest cold and plugged sinuses, which increased to a full-blown fever by mid-day - that is still lingering this evening. Tylenol is helping suppress it, and I think it's almost broken, but I'll have to wait and see if Friday is better, because I don't want to call in three days in a row. Last night I had cold sweats and chills when the Tylenol wore off, and kinda felt like dying. I haven't been "sick" sick in a long while, so I guess it was my turn.

Let me find out our bad daddy was....well....A BAAAD DADDY! Glad you had a good time. Also glad you didnt go broke trying to gamble. Last time I went, the eye in the sky let me bet 40 bucks the whole weekend and I came back with 400. Good times, good times.

I wish I had the luck for that kind of return on my gambling, Flo. $400 from $40 is pretty awesome.

I actually was waaay down - nearing my total loss limit for the weekend - as of Saturday night and Sunday morning (got stupid at the roulette tables), but managed to have decent success late Sunday and Monday at the blackjack tables, so I won most of my losses back. With just the cash spent gambling, I finished down about $60 over 4 days - not bad for several hours of fun. And we must have spent substantial time in seven or eight different casinos.

As far as money spent on food and booze... well that's a whole different story. ;)
