Late last night as I was contemplating getting into my PJs and labeling myself as loser of the century for going to bed at 10pm while in Vegas, this girl kept pestering me to come on downstairs and lose some money. So I put my big girl undies on did it. I sat down to play some blackjack while EMZ watched and had the privilege of singing some Hall and Oats (Sarah Smile) with this gentleman.
I lost money quick and we went over to do some roulette. I was distracted, throwing chips here and there on random numbers, slugging down Coronas. Before I knew it I had won $200. EMZ put it upon herself to give me the famous finger as did her husband. But I didn't mind. I had my winnings. At least they both have nice middle finger form (MFF).
Loved my time with Ms. Emz. So fun to hang out with the tallest and nicest couple in Vegas this weekend.
This morning I spent some time with my chocolate milk friends filming some footage:
We then hit up the expo which was a freaking madhouse of healthy people. For a moment I turned into a middle aged male with man boobs.
My friend Erika and I had to recover from the the stress of packet pick ups and vendor booths by having a big fat spicy bloody mary. We then met Jason, his wife and his brother and sister in law for a tasty lunch. Sorry, I failed as a picture taker for both Jason and EMZ. Bad blogger points.
Erika and I knew that if we had any hope of going out tonight we needed to come back to the room for some chill time. To me, that meant putting my feet up and checking email, but to Erika it meant getting PJs on and climbing into bed.
That is a dangerous thing to do because there is a chance you will never get up again. But, then I did it too because I am a sucker for peer pressure.
I suppose you will have to check back later to see if we made it out of the room later or not.
I have to admit, the race tomorrow is freaking me out a bit. 44,000 runners is the population of Oro Valley, AZ (fun fact for you, go look it up). More than the massive size of this race is the fact that it is at 5:30 p.m. I find it tough to wait around all day to race. I just do. It’s kind of like waiting around all day to get on a flight, it’s hard to focus on anything else for the rest of the day. I will say, however, as a huge fan of VEGAS it will be an amazing thing to run on the Strip, in the dark, all roads closed. Just me an the road and 43,999 other people.
I tried to find famous people running Vegas besides me but I only know of Kate Gosselin and Andy Baldwin. Know anyone else?
Do you prefer the excitement and energy of big races or the intimacy and mellow nature of smaller ones? I think both have advantages
Are you DONE once your PJs are on for the night? Yes, always. I make a commitment once my comfy clothes are on that my day is DONE. Except for tonight.
