las vegas is a weird place

Yesterday was our first full day in Las Vegas.  I spent most of it being terribly lazy in our room.  After 4 days of driving and sight-seeing, I needed a long break.  I slept, caught up on tv (the latest episode of The Killing and the Game of Thrones premiere, omg!) I read, unpacked, slept a little more…  It was decadent and awesome.

Our hotel is off the strip, which is good in that we can easily walk to places that don’t have slot machines in them.  Dinner was a quiet little Ethiopian place; so good!

I’ve been in Vegas a couple times before.  Advertising will say differently, but at their core, casinos are all the same; 24-hour noise and color, the smell of stale cigarettes and floral deodorizer, and people gambling.  Here’s my view from breakfast at the Java Vegas in our hotel.  I should note, this is just moments before Andrea became mayor of Java Vegas on foursquare.

Believe it or not, I enjoy Las Vegas.  Besides all the gambling and what I feel is the ugliness associated with it, the rest of the city and casinos are a 24-hour carnival.  I’m definitely going to New York, New York sometime this weekend to play skeeball and ride the roller-coaster.

Soon we’ll be checking in to the convention.  Later I’m certain to be catching some awesome live music.  Tonight there will be drinks at the bar.  I’ll be having a fantastic time, only with a very loud backdrop.
