Some cool things about Las Vegas

By las vegas, lists 2 Comments

1. There are no helmet laws here, so you can tell if the guys riding the motorcycles are cute or not before you get all excited about them.

2. It’s legal to give away alcohol, so if you’re gambling, you get free drinks. Oh, and you can drink the alcohol wherever you want — the hotel, the casino, the street, the mall, etc.

3. If you’ve got some extra time around sunset, you can pop in a good CD and drive around the south side of the 215 watching the airplanes take off while the mountains fade from red to purple and the lights begin to glow on the Strip.

The Best Valentine’s Day Ever

By las vegas, lists 3 Comments

Some reasons why yesterday was the best Valentine’s Day ever:
1. I had chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast.
2. I went for a 3-mile run.
3. I got lay in the hammock outside in the sun for a bit with Cosmo and a huge glass of water in my shorts and a bathing suit top.
4. I live in a place with palm trees.
5. I watched one of the coolest episodes of JAG ever from Season 3. (Harm and Mac KISSED!)
6. Even though you can only take 5-minute showers here in Nevada, at least I got to wash my hair with my new Bumble & Bumble Alojoba shampoo and conditioner that my parents gave me as a V-Day present.
7. My hair smelled nice for the rest of the day.
8. Even though I lost $55, I looked like a badass playing Blackjack for awhile at Caesar’s.
9. I must have looked damn hot when I went out last night because when I sat down next to my aunt at the Wheel of Fortune slot machine, she jumped because she didn’t recognize me!
10. The only silly boy I had to worry about all day was Franky Pockets.

If you…

If you think you can move to the desert and moisturize less than three times per day, you are wrong.

If you think you can find a job in Las Vegas in less than one week just because there are so many jobs here, you are also wrong.

If you own a Home Depot and you think it is acceptable to play love songs constantly in your store, you are extremely wrong.

If you are driving a green SUV from Colorado in Las Vegas and you think it’s a good idea to cut me off on Flamingo, you are damn wrong.

If you clicked on that link to try to see an Osama video and infected your poor computer with tons of spyware even though I nicely warned you not to, you are an idiot.

If you are a hamster and you have opted to discontinue boisterous nocturnal activities due to the removal of your exercise wheel, you are damn lucky because you won’t have to worry about me contemplating flushing you down the toilet tonight.

If you think I would actually consider taking my clothing off for money and/or do not believe that I was joking about it on my away message, and if you actually IMed me to say so, you have some serious issues.

If you are a security gate attendant and you think that a Jersey girl won’t bite your head off for not being cooperative about her having to get home to change into some running clothes after a long day of fruitless job-searching just because of an expired visitor’s pass, you are in for a big surprise.

Oh, and if you think I would really flush that stupid rat down the toilet, you are just sick. It may be loud, but it’s furry and cute and it sleeps in a little plastic TV.
