I suppose I should’ve taken some time yesterday to update everyone on my trip to Vegas. My flight was set to get in at 6:30 a.m. after leaving Vegas at midnight, since we have that lovely loss of 3 hours. Unfortunately due to the Indiana flatlands, we had a bit of a fog issue. The issue being that it wouldn’t lift. So after a good hour and a half in a holding pattern. (What pattern is that really?) we were sent to the oh so nice airport of Dayton, OH to spend 2 hours trying to sleep in chairs with these horrible armrests. I dozed off on the floor to be awoken by a lady with a serious attitude, grumbling about trying to make it home to Indy, telling me our flight was boarding. I follow her, only to realize that it’s not my flight at all, but the plane coming from California to Indy. So thanks for nothing lady. Anyway, instead of landing at 6:30, it was sometime after noon and I made it to work, on little to no sleep by 1. Not sure what I accomplished while here, but at least I was here. Not that I’m sure here is where I want to be though either. Anyway, here’s a little list of some stuff I picked up while in Vegas.

Top 10 Things I learned on my trip to Las Vegas:
#10. It really is possible to build an entire city in the middle of the desert.
#9. Indiana is way way way too flat.
#8. The Mediterranean Café is a fantastic restaurant. (Even 3 times in 4 days good.)
#7. People know how to throw dinner parties. Champagne & the Osbournes always make for a good time.
#6. Nothing is too lavish or over the top when casinos are concerned. The gross amounts of money spent at these places is nothing short of despicable.
#5. I want to learn to Knit. Like this week. Who wants a scarf for Christmas?
#4. Lost in Translation is an amazing movie. Emotive, poignant, and extremely funny.
#3. A good time is had by all when beatboxing, free verse, and My Girl all combine.
#2. I haven’t seen nearly enough of the world. Or even the United States. I need to do something about that.
#1. Keith lives in an absolutely beautiful community, and I was blessed just by glimpsing that for a few days.

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky
