i got to the hotel around 11:30 sunday night. i think this may be the only hotel in vegas that does not have either revolving or automatic doors so opening the door and wheeling your luggage in is a bitch. finally got to my room and was ready to crash.
when i travel i don't really like to sit beside people i know from work, unless of course they are my friends. this time around i sat beside ditto (remember her?) for both legs of the flight. she talks to hear herself talk. finally, w/ three hours left in the flight i put on my headphones and closed my eyes. i don't listen to my mp3 player much but it makes me laugh to think of how much fun you'd make of me to know what songs are on there : ) maybe i'll post that later this week for your mocking enjoyment.
yesterday i walked around the trade show all day with ditto. ugh. it is nice to reconnect with people from my industry that i see a few times a year, but in general it is very tiring. basically i go from showroom to showroom, talking business, learning about the new product and taking pictures and then at some point (last night in my room and this morning before i head over to the show) i write stories about it. glamorous i know.
i was back in my room and ordered room service by about 7:30 last night. i will try to take some pictures of something interesting if i see anything other than the trade show and other than my hotel. here's the lame part--i know most people take advantage of being in a place like vegas, and my first few times out here i did too. my favorite thing to do is visit the fountain at the bellagio, but none of my buddies are here and i'm not likely to go out traipsing around by myself at night.
i'll see what goodies i can find to write about though. i did see a neil diamond and tina turner impersonator perform at the trade show yesterday. at first i really thought it was neil diamond, he sounded exactly like him, but he was at least 10 yrs younger. certainly not rod stewart, like they had this summer, but it was something.
