I Can Hear it Since It's Vibrating in My Mouth (Second Night in Vegas)
Las Vegas Travel Blog› entry 3 of 9 › view all entries
As planned, I woke up super early to get some work done before enjoying a glorious afternoon by the pool with Lisa. rolls around and boom, text from Melanie to check her Facebook status as she updated with comments related to the night before. Hee Hee.
It turns out I have to work longer than planned so Lisa and I head out the pool with laptop in hand. I figure I can sit out in the shade, take advantage of her neighbors who don’t know how to secure their wireless networks, and get my work done there. HA HA.
We get out by the pool and as typical Vegas weather, it’s miserably warm, well over 100 degrees I am sure.
Unfortunately, we had to go as it was getting late and Lisa and I still had to shower and get ready to pick up Melanie at for our sushi and happy hour date! We were all going to another one of our sushi faves, Sushi Mon for an all-you-can eat lunch and then off to Blue Martini at Town Center to meet up with some more of my RLFs.
There was a bad accident on the freeway and for those that don’t know what Vegas traffic is like in an accident situation, yeah, it’s frightening. You could reach your destination faster by walking on the freeway instead! We finally get to Sushi Mon, about an hour behind schedule so it’s time to chow so we can try to get to the Blue Martini early since we were told it fills up right away when the doors open at 4pm. We hurry hurry and of course, we are running behind and don’t get to BM until after . As we walked up, I knew we were in trouble on seating since the place was PACKED. We raced through, found no tables inside and then on the way back, spotted the last two together on the patio, but quickly figured out why they were empty…these were the tables that didn’t get relief from the misters! Uuuuugh!
Now, in addition to my RLFs we were meeting, I was RSVP’d in another social group that was meeting at the Blue Martini - supposedly 75 people from the Meetup.
Turns out Desiree is a HUGE travel buff and leads these adventure tours and trips through places like REI, etc. She is obviously interested in TravBuddy and we are totally interested in her knowledge, expertise, and resources. She invited us to several more events she is hosting and we hope to see her again soon as well as on TravBuddy!
Outside on our inferno tables, my RLFs are slowly showing up. One of my attorneys at work, Steve, is meeting us and invited some of the local well known plaintiff attorney firms in town.
We decide on going to Red Rock as Blue Martini is beyond packed as the live band had just come on when we were leaving.
Tracy (Tre69) and I had recently talked about the drinks we had there that night - the Dead Red….oooooooo. So in
Mel was a bit tipsy from her shots and managed to rattle off quite a number of funnies that I tried to write and keep track of as much as I could but they were all coming so fast, I couldn’t keep up! LOL. Here are a few that I remember:
- My head is one big heartbeat
- I left my leg in San Francisco
- I am laughing and I have no idea why
- What is going on here? I feel like I have a big monkey wrench between my head (how many heads do you have Melanie? LOL)
- This is my favorite I think.
- OMG, we are on a freeway and it feels like we are moving really fast
- This is how I felt in Los Angeles...like I am floooooating
- OMG, this is where I live!
- "Erin, I am wearing sunglasses and you know what that means, right?"
- "I want to sleep with a mushroom! OMG, did I just say I want to sleep with a mushroom?"
- Did you say hi to my frog? You MUST say hi to my frog.
And Michael had one too!! HA HA. We were talking about his suits and ties and he says, "I have a hard time picking the right ties to match my skirts" :-)
What a fun night! I am so happy Michael called us and we got to hang out. Looking forward to seeing him close to home here and at future TB meets!!
