Viva Las Vegas

Subject: Musings
Tomorrow, Christmas Day, I fly off to Las Vegas for a few days with the family. Kind of a long story, but it's something my dad really loved to do, and I guess we're doing it in his honor.

"I guess", because it's really my two brothers who really want to go; my mom and I aren't entirely enthused. I like it well enough, but I've become a rather stingy fussbucket these past few years now that I'm finally earning enough that I can seriously save towards an early retirement.

Plus, to top it off, I'm actually going to have to work while I'm there. I was so overloaded with projects this month that I really have no other way to meet important deadlines. I'll make up for it, I'm sure, but that use-it-or-lose it week I took a few posts back is really biting me in the behind right about now. Oh well.

Maybe there'll be pics, but there's no free internet at the Luxor, so it's tough to say. I'm hoping to take a few short trips outside of town to the various natural splendors, weather permitting. Beats shovelling money into slot machines.

Happy Generic Winter Solstice Festivities to all! Be back soon.
