This-n-That Thursday

What happens in Vegas...
  • Did you miss me?
  • My conference was really good. And exhausting.
  • Dry heat? Is still hot.
  • There may be no such thing as a lucky number.
  • Dueling Piano Bar? Interesting....
  • Drunks in Dueling Piano Bar? No comment.
  • Fat, drunk, middle-aged men should not wear tight Abercrombie t-shirts.
  • Fat, drunk, middle-aged men are everywhere in Vegas.
  • Did I mention it was hot?
  • My babies turned 20 while I was away.
  • The Baby Bird was in Bulgaria for the big day, and Augie celebrated with his father.
  • I celebrated by losing $$ at the roulette table.
  • Did I mention that there may be no lucky numbers?
  • You have not lived until you sit on a 108 degree tarmac with a flat tire on a plane and no a/c. Oh, surrounded by screaming babies. Yeah.
  • I think Dorothy may have said the most profound thing ever.
  • There is no place like home.
How has your week been so far?

You have me cracking up this morning! Men in Vegas, so true! Screaming babies on planes, ugh!
The plane must have been miserable!

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Oh my. Sorry about all that.

And as a reminder, your home is in Virginia....

"Fat, drunk, middle-aged men are everywhere in Vegas"

...and I'll be one of them there next week! Thanks! I don't have a tight Abercrombie t-shirt though!

Country Girl said...

Yes! I've missed you. Welcome home ~ there's no place like it.

Looks like you lucked out meeting LL Cool Joe. Darn!

Dorothy did have it right--unless a passel of company is descending upon you tomorrow, you've been sick forever, and you're nowhere near ready for them--not even clean sheets on their beds as of right now, and you have a freaking sinus infection that won't quit Then, Sunday, you're supposed to join them at a blissful cottage on the blissful Outer Banks, with your beautiful grandchildren for a week.

Sometimes, one might need to be with the drunk, fat, middle-aged men in Vegas.

But not this week!

Nah....somehow, I'll click my heels together 2 and a half times, and--well, we'll see...

I think...

Of course we missed you and I know you are happy to be home...

We have one of those Dueling Piano Bars at the lake, but I haven't been. David has but not me.

Please tell the babies belated Happy Birthday from me!

Mine may be moving into an apartment and I'm not sad.

I did miss you. I believe my last 2 airplane trips involved heinous small children making lots of noise ... and I am sure those obese men also had Bluetooth phones in their ears... every overweight man I saw in Vegas had a Bluetooth in their ear .. I wanted to ask: who, dude, is calling you while you are on vacation so you need a phone stuck in your ear all the time? Seriously?

The Incredible Woody said...

People also shouldn't wear shorts with 'Abercrombie' across their tushie if their crack is large enough to gobble up several letters. True story. And yes, I did miss you:)

TSannie said...

You there yet?

Vegas has never been an appealing prospect for me. Now? Less so.

Though I do want to see The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil.

Drama Queen said...

I DID miss you! I missed the Tuesday Text - ACK! But Vegas...I went to Vegas once, in the summer. And that was my first mistake. Notice I said, "once." Lesson learned - never went back in the summer! I think my shoes melted to the sidewalk as we walked down the Strip. Dry heat is STILL FREAKIN' HOT!!!

Joanie said...

Yep, there IS no place like home! (Your comments about the Vegas men made me laugh out loud!!)

Keetha said...

I'm with you: I love home. We went on a vacay last week to the beach and I'm really happy to be back home.

Snooty Primadona said...

Not sure how I missed this one but I did. You're sooo right about the middle aged men in Vegas. Yuch.

I would never, ever play Roulette. I won't even play craps. I stick to the blackjack tables. The odds are better, LOL!

Hope you had fun anyway!
