Off to Sin City

Happy Fri-Monday, everyone. Yes, I am only working one day this week. I know, it’s rough. So, anyway, Sports Fans, what was up with that Superbowl? It was B-O-R-I-N-G until the fourth quarter. Whoa! Then it got interesting. We had a snow shower during it…and driving home from the get-together I was at in the snow at midnight knowing I had to get up at 4:30 this morning was just made better by me knowing that I won’t have to see snow for four and a half days!

So, I am packed. Yoda is packed. The house is somewhat clean. Reservations are made. $300 shoes are packed. And I am ready to par-tay in Vegas. This is a much needed distraction. I will feel a little guilty on Wednesday when I am supposed to be in class, but not that much! I’m sure I’ll get an email update on all the fun that was had.

Knitters, you have no idea how many non-knitters have freaked out this week knowing that I am allowed to take knitting needles on a plane. Not that I am going to use my Kyusho Jitsu moves on anyone with knitting needles, but that I guess they could be used as a weapon if needed. There was a lot of "how can you bring knitting needles, and I can’t bring finger nail clippers?" I don’t know, but I like it!

Update: Yeah, so I’m still in Illinois waiting for Midway to open back up. It was closed due to fog last night, thus canceling our flight this morning. After over an hour on the phone with the airline, we are on the 5:00 pm flight out of Chicago. Cross your fingers that the snow holds off that long….
