What Happens In Vegas

So I mentioned something the other day about a countdown for a particular event that Justin and I were anticipating. I did not however mention what it was...

We went to Vegas! And got married :) I kid I kid. While we did not get married we did go to Vegas for a quick rendezvous. My work schedule happened to have a small hole in it which allowed for a quick getaway. So away we did get. Here is the view from our room at the Paris:

While we were gone we enjoyed 'O' by Cirque Du Soleil at Bellagio, ate at lots of nice restaurants, basked in the sun by the pool side, and walked the old strip and new strip. I must say the vacation was glorious. The timing of it all worked wonderfully.

I must admit that the city of sin was much dirtier than the last time I recalled visiting. The usual escort service card hander-outers were littering the streets as they always do. There were also so many more homeless people than I rememebered; the most memorable was sleeping on the sidewalk with his pants and underware pulled halfway down.

We also had to dodge "minions" and "Olaf" who were straight from some sort of a twisted nightmare. I personally do not care for stuffed animals. They creep me out quite apart from the one dog "Fluffy," which I have somehow retained from childhood despite at least dozen moves.  In all honesty I should be afraid of that mangled beast but I just couldn't imagine throwing him away. Yes Fluffy is a boy and he wears a red bow in his hair, his eyes are off kilter so to some he may appear rough around the edges. Back on track; as I was saying I do not care for stuffed animals and these "minions" and "Olaf" were demented. They were dirty and most likely smelly though I kept a good distance so I can't confirm that. They also squeaked some sort of dog toy at me in an attempt to get a hug *shudder shudder shudder. I wish I had gotten a photo but that would have involved certain risks I was not willing to take.
