Groundhog Day is Super Bowl Sunday

Would that have made it more of a palatable day for Phil to live through over and over and over again?

I just woke up, which really surprises me. I haven't slept this late since I was sick, and speaking of which, I'm either in the throes of a bad allergy attack or relapsing. I feel like crap. Not sure if it's just the traveling, the crowds, the too-much-food (but oh, so good), the walking, or what, but the headache and vague soreness is back. I just have to get through today, and I would like to enjoy it.

I did enjoy yesterday and Friday. Yesterday we went to see the new Circe show at the Aria Resort, Zarkana. I didn't know it was a Steampunk-themed show!!! I was squeeing all over the little giftshop, with the cunning little top hats and roses-and-gears covered things. I got a couple of really nifty tee-shirts. I would have LOVED to have gotten a wonderful blouse for Barb I thought she'd like, very "Fallen London," but it was nearly $100... maybe next time. :)

Happy New Year, of course -- 恭 禧 發 財 !!! I always like coming to Vegas around this time. Always lovely in the Bellagio Conservatory. Haven't uploaded any pictures, but I tweeted a few from my phone (I knew a smart phone would increase my tweeting... I hope the "my tweets" posts aren't too annoying on your f-lists).

I'm glad the Phoenix Chinese community decided to do their New Year week celebrations NEXT weekend instead of this, so I can go. (Possibly because of the Superb Owl... er, Super Bowl /WilWheaton )

The high today in Vegas is supposed to be 54. The jet stream has finally dipped down into the southwest. Thank goodness there's rain in California -- I hope it crosses the mountains into Arizona. It doesn't look like they think it will, though. I know California gets all the press about the drought, but really, Arizona is suffering, too. And we STILL haven't instituted any water restrictions. God, I love my narrow-minded, conservative, headstrong state...

Headache seems to be easing. Hopefully it's just sinuses and sitting up is helping. (Dry cough never has gone away, that's no different.)

I'm surprised Mom hasn't come back upstairs. She has always gotten up before me and gone down for her coffee, which, since I don't drink it, has never been a problem. In the last several years, as I've gotten older and more used to waking up early, I usually get up about the same time and take these early morning hours for "me" time to, say, update my journal and such. That's why I was so surprised I slept until nearly 8. I just don't do that at home anymore. But Mom still labors under the impression that I'm still a teenager who sleeps until noon -- she was saying, "Do you realize I'll be 79 next month?" and I didn't point out to her that, come August, I'll be 50. I don't think any mother wants to hear that sentence...

Oh, there she is. Guess I'll sign off.

I'm glad the headache is fading and hope you can enjoy the day. Are there big shows going on for Chinese New Year?

I missed the Lion Dance -- we were on our way to the Aria -- but not so much shows as decorating and FOOD!!!!

I'm glad the Phoenix Chinese festival is next week. Maybe we'll get to see a Lion Dance there.

Man I really hope you start feeling better.

Actually in my news your state along with the rest of the SW made into the news for the water shortage. Yikes.

I'm glad you had fun. I had NO idea Zarkana was steampunk or I would have gone!

I seemed to be somewhat better on Sunday, and feel pretty good today, so hopefully it's not a major relapse. (Although this morning my coughing was producing yukky stuff again. I won't take another course of antibiotics this soon, though.)

I didn't know what Zarkana was, either -- but it was VERY good, and the merchandise was all TO DIE FOR. I wanted to buy a buttload of stuff, but managed to contain myself.

here's hoping you don't need more antibiotics.

man, i would have lost my crap in the gift shop had I known. I mean over all I bought myself just two little things the entire week beyond food
