Vegas, baby!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Well, it's official. We're going to las Vegas in October. Yeah, baby!

Mrs. Fab has to go for some big medical professional management convention or such and I am going to tag along for the ride.

Yes, we will be flying. I don't know how we're going to work that out, but I am assuming that I will be put on a gurney, fitted with a morphine drip, and loaded into the luggage hold. That should get me there with a minimum of fuss.

I don't know much about Vegas, but I understand there is a ton of stuff to do there, which is good, because I'm not much a gambler, really. All I ever play is slots, and I have a tendency to get bored after a very short while doing that.

I understand at the convention there is a huge trade show. I don't usually take free stuff but I am planning to load up at this one. I will have enough Prozac pens and Viagra note pads to last me to the end of my days.

Sadly, Mrs. Fab has mandated that I am forbidden to engage the services of any "escorts" during the trip. She is holding pretty firm on that.

However, in a moment of weakness, she has agreed that half of whatever I win at the slots I can spend in strip clubs. So I have that going for me. Which is nice.

Of course, she agreed to that knowing that I am not really a fan of strip clubs. Damn her cleverness!

We are going to renew our wedding vows at the Graceland Wedding Chapel.

And we will be staying here at the Las Vegas Hilton. Mrs. Fab is stoked, because this is where her favorite singer (swooooon) Barry Manilow performs. Barry won't be there when we are, but apparently there is a recording studio of sorts where you can make a CD singing karaoke to Barry's songs. So guess what I will be doing one day while she's at the conference?

Time in New England/Took me away/To long rocky beaches --and you, by the bay/We started a story/Whose end must now wait...

The things we do for love, eh?

Also my blogging buddy Kathy from The Soda Stand, who lives in Vegas, has graciously offered to let me know whatever is "can't miss" the week we're there.

Imagine. A goofball reprobate like me cutting up and running around loose without sanction in Sin City.

Should be worth a post or three.

The Things We Do For Love is a different artist altogether. Have fun, though. It will be hard to have more fun than you will have the week before you go, though, when you meet me when I come to visit you. Even Vegas can't compete with all that is The Princess!

Fab, you'll have a FABULOUS time! The city is electric!! Restaurants open all night (you should try to hit Piero's), shows up the ying-yang and don't forget to try the Carmel Bar at the Bellagio!

BTW, slots suck. Try video poker.

Oooo that's so sweet, renewing your vows and all...I love Barry Manilow's 'Oh Mandy' please, please can you sing it on your return.
Las Vegas, Oh My...My you'll be FLYING...I mean that in a alternate druggie state of mind.
Please can we get a photo of you and the Fabulous Mrs. (fully dressed, well Mrs. Fab, anyway)

Vegas is cool! I suggest you rent a car, and get out of the city though unless you want to go to conventions or casinos. I went hiking in this cool turtle sanctuary park, went swimming and boating in Lake Mead etc. And things cost half the price outside of the strip. Example: bottle of water at casino - $5, bottle of water at walmart *same brand - 75 cents. Ok, sometimes its more than half. If you have time, you can take a trip to the grand canyon which is very close as well....

Vegas is a playland for degenerate adults like myself.

I only play the blackjack machines. Fuck people and their evil glares when I decide it's time to hold with 13.

The last time me and my buddies went to Vegas we ended up being driven around all night by a cute female cab driver who took us to strip clubs (she even came in with us) and ended up blowing my buddy in the cab after she had dropped us off at our hotel. True story.

Blogger Lynda said...

My dad isn't much of a gambler and my mom likes the slots, but they have a great time in Vegas. My mom said once you could spend a week there just going to the different hotel attractions!

If you run out of time for renewing your vows, there is always that drive thru wedding place. Shouldn't Time in New England really be Time in Las Vegas?

Nice! I hope if hubby goes to a conference of some kind that I can afford to tag along. It's a good opportunity for free accomodation (when the uni pays for his). Have fun! Wouldn't mind seeing some of that karaoke video ;)

I had no clue you were afraid of flying. Two sedatives and three Bloody Marys usually does the trick for me.

I've never been to LV. Would like to go someday. Maybe. i guess. kinda.

You'll have fun, I'm sure. You're the kinda guy who could have fun at a reading for C++ instruction manuals. And LV is FAR from being that.

Does she really even exist?

KQueen--You know I love you, but umm...hiking? Lakes? I can do that here :)

Pud--Is valium a better choice than Xanax?

Pissy--Please do. I won't be hard to spot!

MCMonk--I bet I don't get that lucky...

Lynda--I could sing it like that, same number of syllables...

Kristarella--Oh, I don't know if there is video too. Maybe...

I am glad you figured it out. As soon as you say "code" by eyes get cloudy.

CP--That would be SWEET! I know it is the latter part of the month. I will check.

Pup--Will you be able to send me bail money if I need it?

way coooooool !!!

when you renew you're vows are you going in a hawiian shirt and shorts or will you dress like elvis?

if you are good at origami you can use the viagra notepads to ... get it up?

i think that to get back at you for the wal*mart gag, mrs fab should just use cuffs and a ball gag to get you on the plane, forget the drugs you don;t deserve them!

Atavan. For flying. It's the only way I can do it. It's the one drug that doesn't make me sleep and I'm not 100% drugged out. There's a bit of memory loss but that's liveable.

And for some reason this Barry Manilow song popped into my brain:

But somewhere down the road
Our roads are gonna cross again
It doesn't really matter when
But somewhere down the road
I know that heart of yours
Will come to see
That you belong with me

Not sure why. Atavan maybe?

WOOOHOOO! You're going to have FUN!! So much to do and SEE! The people watching is the absolute BEST. The Casinos are all splendid with themes to each one!

For the best french meal you have ever had, go to Paris Restuarant. Their bread they serve is the best. Their escargo, is orgasmic! Their Creme brulee is the second or third orgasm of the meal! (spendy, yes. But oh so worth it!)

And I think you've scored on the medical ink pens and pads.I have my x-husband bring me the drug pens all the time from the hospital he works at. You're getting them at the source! I think you could/should run contests giving them away. I know that they are sold over E-bay all the time. ;-) (I'm winking, but I'm not kidding. Rachel from Web Desgins bought a shit load of them off of E-bay)

I hope you have a fabulous time Mr. Fabulous! :-)

Things YOU should do in Las Vegas:

1. Go to Liberace's museum (he wasn't gay or anything).

2. Go to Downtown Las Vegas. It is seedy. Notice the "talent" at the Downtown hotels. You've probably not seen them for years and like their material they've aged.

3. Take a bus ride to Laughlin, Nevada. It is Las Vegas for the cheap and lower class. Most of the waitresses are about 70 and have breasts that hang down to the floor.

Why can't I get that job writing for Fodor's?

Mrs. CPA--Thanks for popping in! You ladies and your Barry LOL

Marty--Dude, I don't know. Obviously you've got the mad skills...

Ben--Hmm...so it is better to seek forgiveness than to ask permission...you are very wise my tall Canadian friend...

Shannon--Hey, just say the word!

Fantastagirl--We should totally go halvsies on a five gallon drum!

And um...escargot? It would definitely induce some sort of reaction, but I don't think it would be an orgasm!
