Vegas, Day 1

With the weather supposed to cool drastically this weekend, Craig and I wanted to take advantage of it still being warm outside to walk the Strip. So, we slept in, had a very late breakfast at nearly 11, and then headed down the road. We're staying at the Mirage, so we're mostly at one end of the Strip, thank god. The only things we knew we had planned for the day were seeing Toni Braxton in the evening and meeting up with bnddbl07...

Today is taking it easy. We're going to go down to breakfast in a few minutes, then we're lazing about our room the rest of the morning. At noon, we're heading up to the movie theater and catching a double feature - Casino Royale and Dreamgirls. Grown-up movies! Not an animated character in sight! Can you tell how excited I am about this? :)

Las Vegas, day 2

It was *snowing* here in Vegas at noon. And boy am I glad we did all our Strip walking yesterday because today was just bitter cold. Blech.

On the plus side, we went and saw Casino Royale and Night at the Museum. Craig decided he didn't want to wait the hour and a half for Dreamgirls, so maybe we'll see that after we get back to CA. *Loved* Casino Royale. The other was all right, but it was spoiled by these two idiots behind us who wouldn't freakin' shut up. We walked back to the hotel after seeing traffic was all jammed (my hip isn't happy with me right now), got deli sandwiches from downstairs, and are currently ensconced in our room to take it easy for the night.

I'm dead tired. But I've got editing and writing to do tonight.

Oh! But I did get some good news this morning. A 14k short story that pepperlandgirl4 and I wrote (over a 2day period at New Year's, lol) was accepted by Samhain as part of their summer shorts they're putting out. It'll come out on its own in e-form, and then they're going to bind groups of shorts into anthologies for print later on.
