I need a Vegas icon, obviously

Wheee, free internet at McCarran Airport, and it's a STRONG connection! Take that, Luxor!

Because apparently this weird thing called "Daylight Savings Time" happened last night, I am not going to lose the hour I gained when I came here. Weird rest of the country. [/cranky sleep deprived Arizonan]

No big wins, but had a good time. Probably spent more money than I should have, but what the heck. I could spend a great deal more at the M&Ms World store alone, but I bypassed a number of things I wanted desperately because I was trying hard to be good (and I don't have that much money anyway, at least until my darned tax refund shows up... at least I'm getting one!).

It's after 8 already, although it does feel earlier, DST notwithstanding, and I should oughta head over to the gate here shortly (my flight leaves, knock wood, at 9:05).

Important things to note about the South End of the Strip: They all serve Pepsi. Bleah. (No offense to the Pepsi drinkers, but I will walk around the Food Court twice to find the place that serves Coke, no matter what I might want to eat.) The demographic skews about twenty-six (I have reached an age where I'm too old for that crowd but not old enough to be as interested in it as Mom has become) - we walked across to MGM and sat down, and the first thing I noticed was they were playing Tom Petty's "Running Down A Dream." Ah, my demographic. Upcoming acts to Las Vegas: Van Halen, Bon Jovi, and Rush. My demographic, indeed. Of course, it's the twenty-something crowd that's now attracted to the retro-chic of the Wayne Newtons...

It was MUCH better coming home, and we flew over the Grand Canyon! I think that's the first time I've gotten to really see it (almost all of it, since we were down at the end) from the air!

Cool! Bon Jovi? did you find out when? I would definitely go to that. Geez I was back in med. school the last time I was at a Van Halen concert

I think Bon Jovi's going to be there in April (the 14th?), if I remember reading the sign correctly, at MGM. Van Halen at Mandalay Bay.

Welcome home! And I'm with you on the Coke vs. Pepsi thing. I decided to actually buy lunch at the zoo today (I usually take it), but they only sell Pepsi, so I took my own soda.

Thanks!

That's what I do! *g* Mom even remembered I like the Diet with Lime, so I was well set for the weekend. More or less...
