Vegas, baby...

Lisa and I have been together for seven years. We've done some amazing things in that time, adventures big and small. But, as we realized with some amazement a couple months ago, we have never taken a grown-up trip together... alone. No kids. No family. No friends. No dogs.

So, economic downturn, economic realities, economic fears... economic anything be damned. We're on the first plane out of Seattle tomorrow, bound for the city of lights.

And we will not behave like responsible, hard-working parents of three.

I know, I know... Vegas is the epitomy of cheez. Trust that we have laid plans to maximize its cheeziness. We will call Excalibur home. We will dress up like a lord and a lady (as long as you can do that in t-shirts and jeans) for the Tournament of Kings Dinner, where we will eat with our bare hands.

And buffet. We will destroy the motherfather buffet.

There are other things we'll do. But you don't get to know about those. Because what happens in... awe hell, you know the rest.

To my bestest cousin Sara - thanks for watching one of our lil' turkeys. We love you! Feed her energy drinks and ramen... all should be well.

Awesome! We just did that ourselves, in December.

Roy - Did you get suckered into a timeshare presentation like we did? Those guys are everywhere... vultures! Oh well, we did get show tickets and a couple free meals (and are happily still timeshare-free).

Hooray! I'm glad you guys got to live it up like tweeners. :p

sn0tty - We were always in bed by 8. Well-behaved, quiet, and sober as judges ;)

A timeshare presentation? Yikes! We had some relatives there from Woodburn who stayed in a timeshare over by Hooters. It was okay - I think it used to be a Residence Inn.

No, we did the *real* Vegas - downtown! Two days and now I'm good for another year. Or maybe three.

We wandered downtown (Fremont Street) about 1am one of the nights we were there. That's actually more my speed than the strip. Binion's for the winions!
