Vegas Update

This is what I hate about Vegas...Waking up every day, leaving my room, and always feeling like I'm in a nightclub. Even early in the morning. The client dinners and over-indulgences...It's just becoming too much. I want to spend this weekend on my couch, in my PJ's, doing nothing at all. I'm over-stimulated right now. I think I need medication.

Also, there's "a charge" for everything here. To use the gym, $24/day. A DAY. Most people pay this much a month for a gym membership. RIDICULOUS! You know what it is...They "comp" all the gamblers for their food and gym and all that jazz, so those of us not spending a load of money in the casinos pick up the charges for everyone else. Ridiculous.

I used to think that I really liked Vegas. Maybe I like Vegas when I'm not here for work, or only here for a few days. Long trips here are insane.

Counting down the minutes until I land at DFW airport. Wish I could fly out sooner.

Las Vegas Blues

I'm in Las Vegas right now. While it is such a fun city, I can't help thinking how much better it would be if Todd were here. I have this great room...I mean, great room. And it's just me and my computer in here. Until Thursday. And I wish Jack was here too.

I'm having to practice restraint on the gambling. As most of you know, I do love to gamble. Last night I wasted $15 in the slot machines because I just didn't feel "warmed up" yet to go to the tables. I'm hoping that I break my leg or there just isn't sufficient time, so that I'm not able to go the rest of the week. I know the casinos are open 24/7. But I'm in conference meetings all day, and have to work on my regular work in the evenings.

Everything here is completely in excess. Everything. That is one thing I don't like about this city. All the wasted energy and resources...

I've got to head out and find some coffee. For some reason, the Hampton Inn knows that a coffee maker is needed in a room, these guys need to get on board.
