on witty banter and the glories of Vegas...

Just to give you an idea of the witty banter I get to deal with from my husband on a day-to-day basis, let me share with you a nice conversation we had while at a buffet in Vegas:

me: "Are you going to go get some dessert?"
J: "I don't know. What do they have over there?"
me: "Everything you've always dreamed of."
J: "Your mom is over there?"

Granted, I totally set him up for that one, but still. Ah, yes, this is the man I love - and honestly, I think I love him even more for his completely random sense of humor.

So, is brilliant. Vegas was fabulous. (There's nothing like playing a good four-or-so hours of $1 blackjack. And I'm pretty sure I've reached my annual quota of Bud Light consumption - hey, if they're free, they're free!) Despite the fact that it was so hot that I'm pretty sure the skin was ready to melt right of my face any time we left a casino, it was a great two days. We went to see Bodies: The Exhibition, which was absolutely incredible (and a little gross, to be completely honest). They had all these bodies and body parts (real, mind you) that had been somehow preserved so you could see exactly what muscles, bones and veins look like. All that good stuff. It was bizarre. They had one room with little babies (thankfully, they let it be known that all the babies had been lost through natural causes, and not the result of an abortion - because I think that would have been a bit hard for me to see), and it showed the development of it all the way from about a week. It was so crazy to see that a baby will have these eety beety fingers and toes after only four weeks of development! It was v. interesting to see.

Other than that, we didn't do much. The trip revolved around the blackjack tables at Slots 'A Fun and various food/drinks. It was a grand ol' time.

Back to work now, though. Back to the grind. Oh, how The Man keeps me down. (Okay, not really. My job, for the most part, kicks serious bootie.)

  6. Thanks for visiting me! Oh, gluten is that string stuff that you create when you make bread that makes it rise. It is in wheat and oats and barley. My husband has celiac disease and cannot tolerate it, celiac is an auto-immune disease in the intestines and makes it so you cannot process gluten. So we kind of treat as an allergy. Really not so odd not to have heard of it, I hadn't either until we figured out why he was sick all the time!
