Vegas: So What?

April 6, 2008 at 3:36 AM 1 comment

Just the other day, my friends and I were talking about nothing in particular at the library. Then one of their cell phones (of which I find myself currently lacking in this high-tech world), go off. In direct violations of library rules, she answers the call.

The rest of us listen in on half of the conversation:

“I’m at the library talking to my friends … uh, huh. What? We’re going to Las Vegas? Why? Leaving tomorrow? Coming back on Monday? No? Coming back on Tuesday?”

After a holiday, whether it’s a week or just an extra day, teachers will ask you about what you did. Among the slurry of mumbles of “nothing much” and “stayed home”, there are almost invariably some who say they went to Vegas.

Vegas: Home of the Mega Resorts. Sure, the hotels are pretty. But how many times could you possibly be impressed by them? When you seen ’em once, you’ve seem ’em all.

Smell: You can’t walk anywhere in the hotels that’s not actually an hotel without getting a lungful of second-hand smoke.

Casinos: I don’t have money and I’m under 21. Go figure.

Too much exercise: I don’t like to walk. When I stayed at Planet Hollywood, to get from the parking area my room meant walking at least a quarter mile, through the aforementioned fog of cigarette smoke. Walking from the Strip, I had to walk through at least half of the Miracle Mile.

Internet: I’ve tried going to rehab, but I just can’t seem to get over that three day hump without Internet. And apparently the big hotels for all their grandeur don’t seem to be broadcasting any free wi-fi.

Food: Great, but be prepared for long lines and digging deep into your pockets for money.

If you’re driving from Southern California, then be prepared to be amazed at the vast, endless stretches of dirt, farms, bushes, and more dirt. Be aware of shopper-types in your group; there’s some outlets in the middle of nowhere that seem to turn an ordinary rest-stop into shopping sprees.

Downtown Vegas: Creepy place. Wouldn’t want to go there at night.

    People drive to Las Vegas to enjoy the unique scenery and lovely by-products of the methanogen bacteria. Everyone is just waiting to see if the cow population in the fields increased since their last visit. Someday, people are going to enjoy a fireworks show and free beef.
