Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

From Vegas to Snow to Boston

Our visit to Las Vegas was a lot of fun. Little did we know, some friends we were meeting there were getting engaged on Thursday night. Of course, the girl (Kim) didn't know, but the guy (Mike) had been planning it for quite some time. We had a great time celebrating with them - as well as at the craps and blackjack tables.

Vegas Baby! Yard o' Margarita

I was planning on staying until Saturday, but Julie made me leave with her on Friday night. Her reasoning was because she was up and I was hemorrhaging cash. I didn't like the idea at the time, but loved it once I slid into my own bed late Friday night.

Leaving Vegas's 90°F temperatures and arriving in Denver's 30°F was kind of a bummer, but the 1" of snow yesterday and today is kinda cool. I leave in a few hours for Boston, where it's supposed to be cold all week. I was hoping for a warm and sunny Red Sox game on Thursday, but with a forecasted high of 40°F it doesn't look like it's going to happen. Oh well, bad weather means I'll probably bill and work on AppFuse more, so it's not necessarily a bad thing.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Update: I just went online to check in for my flight tonight and found out that United cancelled my flight due to "crew legalities" - whatever that means. Orbitz booked me on the next available flight, which isn't until tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m. Doh!

The good news is I get to spend another night with the wife and kids. Unfortunately, tomorrow is going to be a brutal work day since I won't get on site until 3 in the afternoon.

My wife and I were just looking at some Vegas travel options. I'm pretty much like you when it comes to the 'blackjack', beer, and fun (who isn't!). Where did you stay? Any good Vegas tips? I swear that would make a great Social website.

A Red Sox related article by Bill Simmons in case you need something to read on the plane. His stuff is pretty enjoyable to read.

Brad - O'Sheas is good, they have $1 Fat Tires on tap! Other than that, they're all happy to take your money. ;-)

Bill Simmons rocks:

Lugo slaps a leadoff double down the right-field line, then celebrates the event with a belt grab, followed by a violent crotch pull with both hands. We need to start naming Lugo's various crotch pulls the way figure skaters name their jumps. Let's call that one a "double ballchow."
