I'm Back

Yes, it's me, and I'm back from my adventure out West.

Feckin' United put my luggage on the wrong G**D*** plane. Bastards. So I have no luggage to unpack at the moment.

I also hate O'Hare with the red hot passion of a million burning suns.

BUT! The trip to Reno was a lot of fun. Yes, I gambled - the slots - and yes, I won. And yes, I turned around and lost it all in the slots. Husband played Blackjack and doubled his money. For some reason the movie "Casino" kept going through my mind.

We also saw Mr. Bill Cosby. It was awesome.

We ventured into CA as far as Nevada City. I told Husband I was getting a creepy Liberal vibe...and then I saw "Impeach Bush" and "Free Palestine" bumperstickers. We got the hell out of there.

I drank too many gin and tonics last night (you know, the free ones you get when you gamble) but didn't have a hangover today.

Yep, toured Virginia City, Lake Tahoe...found the Cal-Neva. For a Sinatra fan like me, that was a HUGE deal.

I have concluded that I do not, in fact, like the desert. I got a sunburn on my right arm...through the car window!

I overdosed on pimple cream and looked like a snake. Nerves about the trip combined with the consequences of my gender made me a pimple faced geek.

But! I did get out there and back by myself. DFW isn't that bad...but damn you to hell O'Hare! DAMN YOU TO HELL!

I took very few pictures. I left that to Husband...who had to then videotape and narrate every damn place we went.

Okay. I need to get the younglings to bed and get something to eat.

O'hare, on top of being one of the busiest airport in the world, is also one of the suckiest.

The drinks must have been weak, hence no hangover. I mean, they don't call them free drinks for nothing.

Some of the best advice I got from my mother was to carry hygiene items and clean underwear in your carryon luggage, then if they lose your luggage you can at least take a shower and put on clean undies.

Yes. O'Hare is horrible to navigate. Glad you're back safe and sound!

Sounds like a great trip! Nothing worse than a one-armed sunburn! My husband and I took a 5 year anniversary trip to Vegas - and didn't take one single picture. Everyone was mad, but you know what they say...
