Checkin In From Vegas!

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingMe, this morning, wet hair and no makeup, taking five thousand vitamins that my husband forces on me every day, LOL. I had two hundred emails, sigh.

We had breakfast and then walked down to the Fashion Show Mall (which in true LV fashion looks two blocks but is like five miles) but it wasn’t as hot as it was yesterday and we had a lovely walk. And they had a Borders which had Touch of Fae on the shelves and I signed it and left bookmarks too. They had Annalee’s book and two of Anya’s which was very nice to see. Even a Samhain title and the manager told me to come back the next time I was in town to sign more. A very good trip indeed.

Couples massage yesterday? Heaven. I love the spa services here.

We had gelato yesterday and then a late lunch at Sensei and I have to say it was the most satisfying dining experience I’ve ever had. I had the Tai (not my spelling) red snapper with rice flakes on the outside for crunch on a bed of pad thai veggies with a green curry froth (and I was dubious about froth on food but goddamn it was good). Deeeelicious. The man had the mushroom risotto with halibut and it was to die for too. But to start we had red chili naan and lobster and shrimp rolls served on an ice block ever so minimalistically cut to hold them and keep them cold. Honestly, I can’t even describe how good it was.

Then off to see Lewis Black. Excellent seats, third row although I hate the four people to a table thing they had. He was on, I laughed a lot.

Las Vegas, sigh. Seriously, I know that what happens here is supposed to stay here but can someone please tell the woman with the spandex super mini that it’s not made to look like it’s going to snap off and hit someone in the eye at any moment? I love that women are not self consious about their body size, that’s a wonderful thing, but not every outfit is made for every woman. Mini skirts are fine, just wear one that FITS. And polyester rubbed together over and over as someone walks in this heat is bound to cause an industrial accident. Men, okay, sir, please, please either wear a belt or get smaller pants, I don’t want to see your hairy ass. Nor do I think sandals with black socks and white bermuda shorts is a postive choice.

I need to corner someone later on today to have them snap a few pics of me and the dude. We got some at Benihana the other night but I don’t have a scanner here. Anyway, we’re having a great time! I miss everyone and hope you all are doing well and behaving!

    Ok you look so cute! You’re totally one of those ‘don’t need makeup’ girls. I can’t wait until I have books to sign someday. That has to be the best feeling.

    I’m jealous of your trip!

    Shelli – thanks sweetie! And I never grow tired of seeing one of my books on a shelf, it’s the coolest thing!

    Bebe – Thank you! It was a wonderful time and now we’re going to do some family type stuff.

    Ciar – Lewis Black made me laugh so hard I nearly peed my pants! I love him even if he had on a leather jacket that he should not have bought, LOL.

    Too funny. I am very anti socks with sandals. And don’t you just love Vegas. I’m only a few hours away, but I rarely get down there.
