Las Vegas is hot as a crotch. Jesus. Who lives here? It is so hot that when you get out of the pool you want to get back in because the air is scorching you. The conference is great! On Monday we went to the strip and ate a very spendy dinner at The Bellagio. I had Filet Mignon that was thicker than a softball and lobster stuffed mashed potatos. Yum! yesterday,..again,..to the strip. We went to see Zoomanity from Cirque du soliel. Whatever,..tickets were expensive. It was ok I guess, a burlesque show, but I enjoyed the regular flavor better. I sat next to an idiot who hated everone and kept making fun of all of the women who weren't asian, and the chubby girls who were doing comedy, he kept saying was "disgusting" and that it was horrifying they were allowed up there. In cool things though, they had man love, two guys kiss, and a tranny master of ceremonies. We tried to go on the rollercoaster at New York, NY, but they said it was closed for "weather" and that random lightening storms were a problem, even though it wasn't raining. If they closed it maybe it was because even at 11pm you would burn your booty to sit on the seat.
Anyhow, my hotel room has a huge jacuzzi tub and an entire livingroom and kitchen and a kingsized bed. It is a timeshare though, so no daily cleaning, people are always getting "the pitch" and internet access is only in another building in the lobby, so not perfect for a business traveller.
This afternoon is the session I'm really looking forward to, which is mentoring for rookie managers, which I hope to learn more about.
This conference I've learned some cool things about Risk Management, and a ton about "agile" and 'extreme" programming,..blah,..some of the ideas are cool, but some of it is such marketing hype that it nauseates me. It's a trend, much like muffin top pants, where I wonder which parts of it are useful, and which will be out like showing your thong in a season or two.
I haven't thrown up at all on this trip, which considering the martini's I've downed is pretty impressive.
Oh, also, I got a direct flight home tomorrow instead of Friday morning! It also was cheaper, so I'll be home on Thurs night. I'm not caught up with any of you, so if you want my attention, email away.
