Greetings from... Mississauga... boring... boring.. Mississauga.
Why am I here? MAN! I miss Vegas.
Here's the trip:
Tuesday night we get in at about Midnight vegas time (4am EST). We get our luggage before anyone else since we figure it was put on the earlier flight 9score). We rent our convertible and head to the hotel. We get to the hotel about 1am Vegas time and we sleep since we were super tired.
Wednesday we awake to a beautiful scene outside.. a nice, sunny day with the mountains in the distance. The whole trip I couldnt get over how beautiful the mountains were. We ate some crappy food at Mexi-italian in the hotel (Circus Circus) then ran over to the Sahara where I did one of the things on my "Must do in my lifetime" list.... Drive a Hummer. I drop a sweet Yellow H2 sport through this crazy off road track. Crazy steps, hills, angles.. just crazy. No words could discribe the rush I had when I was driving that bad boy.. no words. All I can say is that I could have gone around a second time.. but just couldnt do it. My body wouldn't let me. So i went over to the Speed track and raced a corvette around the track twice. The Hummer was better.
We then met up with a bunch of our friends and walked around our half of the strip (pretty much from Circus Cirus to the Venetian, which was absolutely Gorgious). Unfortunately all the walking messed up my ankle a bit.
Thursday was a just hang out, drink and gamble a bit. I think of the whole week I won $55... spent about $50 in total.. so i guess I did o.k. We're not big gamblers... but $8.75 huge Margaritas are pretty good.
Friday - Sunday was pretty much LQ and drinking. Westland came in Second. Stupid packs with no Lasers.. wtf? But oh well. Sundays after party was pretty fun. It was at some bar in the middle of no where.. but there was food.. drinks and friends.
Monday we walked around the streets a bit more. hit up the Peppergrill.. peppermill? whatever. Some Restaurant that looks straight out of a bad 70's movies. Bright colours.. all rounded booths, and multi-coloured rock sugar in dispensers. I felt I had to blend in so I got myself a Blue Hawaii.. that was the most fitting drink for that atmosphere.
Monday night we left for Detroit, but before we left we had to see the Water Show at the Bellagio. My aunt told me that if I went to see it I HAD to go into the hotel and sit in the patio. So we did.. and the view was amazing! I got some gorgious pictures and even though we spent $24 US on 2 daquiri's... it was totally worth it. We were both in awe.
Our flight was delayed at at around 1am Vegas time it finally left the Airport. Both way we had a stop over in texas (ug.. Texas) and on the way back we slept on cots in the airport trying to get a little sleep. by the time we got to Detroit it was 11am EST. So... 1am vegas time to 11am EsT time.. no need for math.. that spells out super tiredness... then Steve smom decided she would go do errands rather then pick us up >_< so his sister came instead. I will comment no further on that point.
Now Im home.. back at work which I hate.. so looking very forward to this weekend. Tonight is the rehersal for Michelle and Corwins Wedding, and tomorrow Im up at 5:30am to get my hair done, make up done and get all prettified for the wedding. Its going to be a crazy day... unfortunately I miss my other firnds wedding.. which saddens me terribly. It realyl sucks how they both planned it on the same day. I'm going ot try to stop by but it will be hard seeing as they are in two different cities on the opposite side of toronto pretty much. >_< booo!
Monday I'm heading to West50 to put in an application. Brand new restaurant opening up and I want a job there... hey.. laura.. New Restaurant.. workies? More pay maybe?
OMG.. i almost deleted the whole entry.. which means its time to stop.
