Vegas, baby!!


Everyone goes through phases where they hate there job, right? Okay, so maybe George doesn’t, but I really can’t afford to not get paid, even if it is an unbelievably amazing job. When my student loans and car are paid off, maybe, but it’s just not doable right now. My organization’s annual meeting is next week, and that is a big part of my job, so I have been incredibly busy the last few weeks. I definitely prefer being busy over sitting around with nothing to do, but add my boss into the mix and I don’t think anyone would like my job. My boss micro manages absolutely everything. She changes the font I use and the background color in my power points - even if I use a company template. She makes me email her a list of the things I am working for the week every Monday and even told me what kind of planner I had to buy for 2007. If there is any one reason in my life that I have to blow off some steam, it is her. And what better way to blow off some steam than by going to Vegas? One of the coolest people I met in Juneau is joining the Peace Corps and where do you go before you are about to leave the country for a few years? That's right, you go to Vegas. And I want to see him before he leaves. I also want to drink a lot of alcohol and maybe even win some money. (Cause God knows I blew enough on the damn ticket!) So, in a little over a month I am going to get the hell out of dodge and head out to Sin City!

I love Vegas. I fell in love with Vegas the first time I went there and have only been back once since them. So even though it’s going to be slightly awkward because a bunch of George’s friends are going to be there and I am not going to anyone, I am really looking forward to this trip. We’re going to some knock off stage version of the Price is Right and I am totally going to win a living room set. I am determined to spend at least a few hours playing roulette and I will not leave unless I learn at least the basic rules of craps. Plus Valorie is going to be there and I hear she is a good luck charm, so obviously someone is going to win big. And no matter what, I am going to end up with a wicked hangover, which is exactly what the doctor ordered. So, bring it on Vegas because here I come!

What a great reason for him to go to Vegas. Peace Corp members should be required to go to Vegas before they leave.

You are too lucky. Gambling, hangovers, living room sets...

I've never been to Vegas. Total shocker I know... but some day soon I will find my way home.

Amazing drinking buddy? Aw shucks, now I am blushing. That's awesome because normally I wake up completely mortified thinking about all the stupid ass shit I say/do/think when drinking.

I agree the best Peace Corps sendoff is Vegas. Good luck on winning money while you're there - it has been my experience that among all my friends and I, there's about a 30% success rate in coming home richer than when you arrived. I'm just sayin'.

what the F, Kdonk!!! Not going to know anyone! We talked on the phone when you were hammered drunk. I practically consider you family, so forget about all that slightly awkward nonsense. It's going to be an unawkward-winning-a-bedroom-set-going-away-birfday-meeting-new-friends-drunken-gamblefest-extravaganza!
