Big in Vegas

Here I am in Las Vegas, in our room at the MGM, trying to get both connected and plugged in because the battery on this old laptap is quite shoddy. The little piggyback plug on the desk wasn't working, but plugging direct into the wall seems to.

I have a lovely view of the rooftop of MGM, the domed part of something I haven't figured out yet, and across the street, New York New York. My 72-year-old mother is already running me ragged. Of course, I CAME tired, so it's my own fault, I suppose. I should have done something about getting more sleep during the week, but I didn't.

Now because I played, I must pay:

Gleefully stolen from nutmeg3:

PIF meme: I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet, but you will receive it within 365 days. The only thing you have to do in return is "pay it forward" by making a similar agreement on your blog.

Note: The "gift" you send doesn't have to be handmade or even concrete. It can be fic, icons, whatever.

I like the note, because of course the original paragraph DOES say "handmade." *g*

I'm not the world's greatest icon maker, but I enjoy doing so, and if anyone has ever wanted to make me write fanfic, well, now's the time.

The MGM Grand Buffet on Saturday nights is very expensive (it was $64 for two), but it included sushi and cracked crab, both iced and hot, as well as all the standards, plus mashed potato pancakes hand-decorated with stuff to one's specifications and some truly yummy desserts. I ate until I could pop at around 5, and did not eat again until, well, now. (Getting ready for breakfast.) There were these sticky peanut butter sticks which I THINK are sort of like mudpies made without the cocoa and flour instead of oatmeal, but I'm not sure. I ate two, which I shouldn't have done, just trying to figure out what they were made of...

Happy Vegas-time! :-)

(I don't count for the Pay It Forward meme, because I'm already doing it...)

It's VERY hot outside, though, and subsequently, MGM is an absolute icebox inside (come to think of it, you'd probably like that! LOL!).

Hmmm. I've been blithely commenting in the pif meme. Am I not supposed to? In case I am allowed, though... Comment!

Have fun in Vegas. That buffet sounds wonderful.

And what would you like from me? *g* I saw the cutest gorilla plushies down in the Lion Habitat gift shop, and thought of you...

Don't worry, I WILL select a picture here sooner or later. I'm just not sure which animal I'd like... there are so many I just LOVE!

Surprise me. :-) And take your time choosing a picture. I wish I had a good lion shot, but our lions are very uncooperative when it comes to pictures. *sigh*
