Drinking a cappuccino from an actual coffee shop (rather than a Starbucks or something) at a 3:15 meeting makes me a very jittery girl. Who kind of wants to throw up. As much as I have learned to like coffee, I hate this feeling of my body not being able to go fast enough for my brain. I have to hand it to the guys at Brioso though, they can really make your eyes stay open.

Anyway, this unexpected caffeine buzz gives me the opportunity to update you all on my trip to Las Vegas before working out, covering the plants because of the impending freeze and doing laundry so I'm not naked at work tomorrow, oh and watching Lost later on (of course). Vegas was super fun. First, I'm not a big fan of Las Vegas. I find it to be a completely invented experience with no cultural value. It pretty much represents a lot of what I think is wrong with America. There's very little substance to Vegas, but there is a lot of glitz. Having said that, it wasn't my bachelorette party and I wanted a couple of days in the sun, so I gladly signed on to the trip.

It's hard with a group of nine girls to decide on what to do and when, but it went fairly smoothly. We stayed at New York, New York which I have always really liked even though I continually got lost wandering around the casino trying to find the right bank of elevators. And, no, I wasn't even drunk. We hit Pure, which was completely packed full of chachy people. I mean really, so what if DJ A.M. was there? At 29, I felt way too old for the place, which really made me wonder why so many creepy 49 year-olds were there. Being girls, we spent plenty of time in the sun poolside. I love the sun! We had a fabulous brunch at Wynn, which is simply stunning. Because it was a bachelorette party, we went to see Thunder From Down Under. This is something I never would have chosen to go see, but it was better than I thought it would be and although extremely cheesy wasn't all that poorly executed. Still, though, ugh. All in all, it was a great trip and I'm glad I went.

Am now off to cover those poor little lettuce seedlings and cut the daffodils for a bouquet. Stupid snow and below freezing temps in April...
