i touched this.

amongst the gyrating crowd
covered in strangers sweat
toes stepped on, pushed and shoved
and grinded on by a boy with absolutely no rhythm 

i was having the time of my life!
viva las vegas!

i stood on top of the world

and it sucked 
so hard
 to have to come back down

woke up around 11 in that fine rodeway inn

had a breakfast of cheerios 
sat around, gabbed 
checked into the cliffs
(realized i forgot my ipod in previous room)
went to red rocks casino
had pizza for lunch, ben&jerry for dessert
went to see benjamin button 
the lindeman-kessingers arrive around 10

my aunt is staying here


i got up around noon,
had ethiopian for lunch,
met up with various family members,
bought tickets to girltalk,
watched house,
played pokemon


vegas, baby

we're finally here
we were packed and out the door by 1:30, on our flight at 4:49 from raleigh to atlanta
from atlanta, we left at 7:00 and arrived here at 8:30, vegas-time
then we waited an hour for a rental car that has a disgustingly strong bubblegum smell in the interior
vegas is everything i thought it might be-- big, flashy, and expensive.
had dinner at denny's, it was PACKED with huge asian families.  it took us about an hour to get our food, but our waiter was really nice.  he had cool slicked back hair
and now i'm typing this up in a surprisingly clean rodeway inn.
it's been a day of firsts for neil:  first airplane ride, first rental car ride, first time being out of nc, let alone greensboro!  he's taking in the sights like a champ, but we're both tuckered out.  who knows what tomorrow will bring!
