How was Vegas?

I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

How was Vegas?

it was there. In fairness, it was essentially enjoyably there. Nothing about it ever makes me really ecstatic, truth be told: I just get really burned out on the constant audio stimulation and the video stimulation. That's how I work, rather than an objective failing of Las Vegas.
I saw azure-hued men eating twinkies to the sound of Ravel's 'Bolero', was reminded that taking my much-longer-stride at my housemate's much-slower-pace winds up with me in fucking agony due to the bad knee, and discovered that the desserts at Nine Fine Irishmen (in New York New York) are a good acid test for lactose intolerance (yep, I'm officially lactose-intolerant).
And that was JUST MONDAY.

Sunday was fun- got in, went to O.
Tuesday was fine- this time, I remembered that my goddamn stride needs to not be the whole length when I'm walking slower. Sleeping was a bit of a chore- the pillows were too darn mushy, and I had trouble gettin' comfy. No big deal, really.

Overall, the housemate did very well at slot machines.

I'm very, very glad I'm home.
  • Aww :( I'm sorry that you were unwell while you were there. Glad that you're back home safe though :)
  • Was this a work related trip?
    • Nope

      Housemate Loves Loves LOVES Vegas, and had been in town previously for a work-related trip-- took a few personal days, and I came along since housemate birthday is not too far off.
      • Re: Nope

        So were you there over the weekend?

        Also...now that I think about it...there aren't any bookstores on the strip, are there. If there were bookstores I'd feel much better about it.
        • Re: Nope

          Got there Sunday night.
          There is one bookstore in the Caesar's Forum shops. It's a mediocre one.
  • It's so money...

    I'm sorry I didn't get the chance to see you & give you my hot Vegas tips. Sounds like you did a bit of actual entertainment, though, shows and the like... being po', I tend to do all the free/shoestring/tacky things in Vegas. :) And that is why the temporary closing of the pirate show sends me into hours of endless weeping. Curses!

    Welcome back. :)
  • For your sake, please get the lactose-intolerance verified via a tine test (preferred) or blood test (if you're on meds you can't stop taking for N hours). I thought I was lactose-intolerant for several years and then finally found out it was wheat and eggs. My sister had also thought she was, but after several years of Lact-Aid has realized it was something else. Given that my mom was recently diagnosed with wheat allergies as well, I wouldn't bet against it being wheat for her. Anyway, the problem with being allergic to something like wheat (and especially wheat + something else) is that you so often have the subject of your allergy along with dairy, so it's easy to blame dairy.
    • I've been carefully keeping an eye on what happens when my stomach gets queasy- it's always after eating dairy.
      Bought some Lact-Aid, ate some pizza and took Lact-Aid with it. NO stomachache.
