Greetings from Vegas [More:]I'm spending the week in Vegas at a computer geek trade show, where I'll be presenting tomorrow (lucky me, I have the last slot in my division on the last day).

While the multicultural attendance is interesting, I've never seen such a collection of horrible presentations. Yikes. Oh and asshattery is universal.
You're in Vegas. Go get drunk and gamble.

People watching always helps me through tough and boring times. I hope you can salvage some of it and have a decent time anyway.

Vegas! All the Seven Deadlies going 24/7. I'm jealous.

Go to the visitor's bureau and get one of those coupon books that give you a free drink here and a free pull on the giant slot machine there. When we were there about 10 years ago we killed a whole day just doing free stuff.

I wish I were in Las Vegas. Somewhere like the Wynn, splashing money around, living large. Go splash some money, plinth! Have fun!

jrossi4r: Are you sure it's legal to have fun *for free* in Vegas?

Ah, jon, we are cut from different cloth. Neither of those hold a tremendous appeal. I've had a tiny amount of beer and am up 1.68 in the penny slots.

We did go see The Amazing Jonathan the other night, which was a really good show.

See Penn and Teller.
Hit the buffet at the Rio.
Find things worth gawking at.
The twinkling in the distance is the Liberace Museum.

ROLLER COASTERS! Vegas is full of them, I tried riding every single one and I think I did. There's one going through that strange europe/new york-minitown, fun! There's one on top of the stratosphere FUN (not the greatest roller coaster but hey, you're way high up!) - there are roller coasters everywhere. Go do them one by one! Those are the two I remember the most because they were the best.
