Things I Learned About Vegas in Vegas
  • Don't look at flyers - ever.
  • People will try to hand you prostitute cards even if you are a woman.
  • People will try to hand you prostitute cards even if you are a man walking with a woman who looks self-righteous and angry.
  • Poker is a man's game.  There were more women giving back rubs than playing in the poker room.
  • You don't have to stay some place fancy to feel decadent - you just need to take a cab there - "Take me to the Bellagio."
  • A casino feels like Chuck E Cheese for adults.
Things I (Re)Learned About Life in Vegas
  • Eventually, I prefer raising my kids to life as a woman of leisure.
  • There is such a thing as enough time to read.
  • Generally speaking, the less time I have, the more time I spend in prayer.
  • It's hard to see the mountains when there are a lot of skyscrapers in the way.
  • Mainly because I'm 34, I don't agree with the specifics of the rule, but What Not To Wear is so right that there is an age after which mini-skirts are sad, no matter how trim the figure.
  • (Proof by counterexample)  There is such a thing as aging gracefully.
  • Even though I don't want to be, deep in my soul I'm a shopper.
  • I love to wear a pretty dress.  If Chris and others tell me I look pretty, I feel like a five year old girl in a twirly dress.
  • People pay for really stupid stuff 
    • Oxygen.  In outer space, I get it.  On our home planet, not so much.
    • Family photos captured in cut glass.
    • Venetian boat rides in a swimming pool.
  • Fabulously wealthy men are allowed to wear bright pants.*
  • I will not pay $7 for a beer or $4 for an individual bag of chips.  I will pay $4 for a brownie. -> Sugar is my problem.

*I tried to convince Chris to give fate a nudge at the poker table by wearing hot pink pants.  No dice.
