Sorry for my absenteeism… John (Travis’s dad) got home from work early yesterday and decided we were going to Vegas for the night. When he said we would be coming home in “the wee hours of the morning” I didn’t realize he meant we wouldn’t be home till 9 this morning. I didn’t sleep much yesterday, so by the end of the night I was completely worn out, but it was fun. We got my pay check yesterday, and John gave us some money, too, so we were able to gamble a bit, but we definitely lost. Lame sauce.
I did take a lot of pictures though, which I post later on tonight, along with further details of our adventure. This was actually the first time I have been to Vegas since I turned 21, so I saw it in a completely different way than when I was a kid and running through the casinos with my parents. We only went to Vegas for funerals (my dad had a lot of family in the area), but my parents would turn it into a weekend thing and gamble away lots of money. Is it terrible that most of our family vacations were actually funerals turned into weekend/week long getaways? And now that most of my great uncles/aunts who lived far away have passed, my younger siblings don’t get to go on vacations. I love my parents, but my family is as dysfunctional and messed up as they come.
In addition to my new theme (what do you think of the green?), I’m going to do some rearranging and rewriting on the other pages of this blog, so be sure to take a look around later tonight or tomorrow. I think I want to re-define the scope of this blog. It will still be fashion oriented, but there’s an upcoming plot twist that I hope will explain some of the weird things I say.
