i'm bringing sulky back

Twelve hours into our big weekend, my head has been pounding for approximately two hundred minutes. Is it me, or is the combination of flashing lights, ringing bells, leering frat boys, tittering drunk girls, and despondent old people everywhere we turn slightly disturbing? Not to mention the lack of one square inch of real estate unencumbered by something garish or gilded. Seriously, I think I fit in less here than in Hawaii, where I was surrounded by water that caused me to hyperventilate. I’m pretty sure the look on my face is perpetually disdainful.

On top of the judgmental attitude I can’t seem to repress, I foolishly only packed fashionable shoes rather than functional ones and can hear my bunions protesting already. Somehow I doubt limping + crying = sexy. Now I’m faced with trying to find affordable footwear in a town where a $110 tank top doesn’t seem ridiculous. (To be fair, it was expertly bedazzled).

So I don’t seem a complete killjoy, here are some pluses so far:

  • Extraordinarily kind lighting everywhere there is a mirror
  • Padded headboard (great for when I’m reading or typing of course, dirty mind)
  • Very nice cab drivers
  • Starbucks in our hotel
  • Nice-smelling soaps & lotions
  • These guys - my bff Jen & her good man Dave

Now if I could find a Goodwill on the Strip, I will gladly stop complaining. Out loud, anyway.

I was almost trampled in a mob on New Year's Eve when I was twenty. So I do have my prejudices about the place.

I feel kind of bad now. When I read your heading to vegas post I was only a tad jealous of your trip. I'd love a weekend getaway with my man, first class lounge and all that but dear lord don't make me go to vegas! I hope your trip gets better.

Mini Update: The Woman is much better. A little Motrin and shopping for shoes and underwear cures many ills.

I get light headed, a headache, and a general feeling of poo, when I go to Vegas, I think it is the altitude.

Seeing that I live down here around sea level.

There is a Sketchers store on the strip. And though it may not be your normal hip and trendy shoe place, well... it may help sooth the dogs.

I bought a sassy pair of HIGH heels the last time we were there and almost died as Jon and I walked the strip. My piggies felt like they were all geisha-bound and gnarly.

Well, if anything is worth $110 big ones, it has to be a bedazzled tank top, right?? LoL. As for the headboard, remember: what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas...or so I've heard.
