It was a whirlwind 30 hours that felt like 5 minutes.
Here is the rundown.... a pictorial.
Picked up at the airport by Tony & Jespy & Home-dog.
Whisked away to the JEsplin home to meet Cord & Gus, pack their pillow cases full of stuff and take them over to Erin's for a sleep over.
Drove downtown to pick up our tickets for Blue Man Group & get some din-din. There was a Grand Lux Cafe in the Venetian that we partook of.... it was decent. I like the chopped salad at Cheesecake Factory better but that didn't stop me from licking my plate.
Jokes about midgets begin for some reason.... they don't stop for the duration of the trip.
Go to Blue Man Group.
I really liked the show a lot. Once I realized that their over all goal is to make you as uncomfortable as possible I got a kick out of it. Then them coming out into the audience and staring straight at you wasn't as creepy as you might think. Oh, it was creepy, but I was on to them. The most uncomfortable part was their makeup.... it looked so itchy and uncomfortable. I don't get it. I don't understand what it's made out of, how it works, etc. I don't get it at all.
When we came out of the show we saw the "back up band" hanging out by the wall and no one was getting their pictures with them. We were like "Saweet!" and took advantage.
We are drumming here, in case you didn't know.
Then we shoved our way to the front of the group to get our pic with this dood. Our goal was to try and be creepier than he was. Living dolls killed. People were lollerzing. I'll let you decide who was creepier here.
This might be the creepiest pic of all.... Tony & Gty back to back.
Gty wants me to call this one "Our wives made us do this."
Romantic weekend get away!!!
Look who we saw! Ole Half Ear himself... Evander Holyfield. He was just walking around Vegas by himself.... when we saw him he was outside Mme. Trussaud's Wax Museum. Wha? Why? So weird.
We also saw Nicholas Cage. He was nice enough to do the living doll with us and then let me get a super up close pic. For reasons that no one knows, Tony insisted on tousling his hair. Nick was cool with it tho.
Then we headed on down to the Bellagio for some water show action.
I don't know why Vegas gets such a bad rap.... I didn't get handed pornographic flyers or anything! The most uncomfortable thing was a harmonica player that could play AC/DC but Tony & Jespy made him do "The Rose." Wha? He earned that dollar.
Then, after some depressing TV (Dead Poets Society), we all went to bed. ::ahem::
The next day we woke up & Gty taught us all how to play Dominion. And by "us all" I mean Cord. He was so into it. I smartened up the second game and had him on my team (Tony won the first one). I thought he'd just be my glorified card shuffler but he srsly helped me to win.
Here is his mother. She said "I'm still not completely sure what I'm supposed to be doing here" no less than 15 times. Her associates degree in History was not coming in handy with this game.
We then headed to gorge ourselves on Olive Garden bread sticks and alfredo before heading to the airport. I haven't been hungry since.
It was such a fun time, you gize! I highly recommend taking 30 hours and heading there for a visit. Jespy is such the hostess with the mostess! An endless supply of Diet Coke, oranges and hot sauce packets were at our disposal.
We will be back. No question.
