… and while I'm quite a bit more excited (I bought a ticket to VivaElvis, now that discounts seem to be available!), I'm still in no mood to travel so soon after the last trip. I have so very much to catch up on, and I'm by no means finished the paper that I've been writing. I'm kind of disappointed in myself on that regard…
On the positive side though, it seems that I have a TONNE of friends (former and current SLPers and Kiwanians) who will be in Vegas so it certainly won't be lonely. And if I don't come up with better plans (I might) there are at least 3 more Cirque shows I could seek out… not sure if I will (though Beatles LOVE is a certain must I think). As you may expect, the thing I like best about Vegas are the shows, so who knows if I'll catch others. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band featuring Cheap Trick is pretty high on my list of potential options for example, so we'll see what's available when I get to Vegas. As it is, there are quite a few convention related things to do and see, and well I seem to have built at least some downtime into my schedule.
Not sure if I'll pay for internet while I'm there. If I do, I'll likely post at least semi-frequently. If not, well, I'll be playing catch up when I'm back. I've already seen most of the Vegas 'attractions' but the shows and the food are all pretty high on my list of things to do. Plus spend time with people I care about!
In other news, as I said before, my desire to cook has returned! Today I made a sort of cheesy potato casserole thing based on a quick online search. It turned out to be really delicious, so it's too bad I won't get to eat it as leftovers for the next week (then again I can have some for breakfast before I fly, as I seem to be mostly out of breakfast food).
Perhaps I should finish packing, as I do want to get a little sleep? We'll see. My goal is to be caught up on at least a few things before I leave home.
