oh, and how could I forget?

the showgirls. all those feathers and sparkle...and nudity. gotta love them

what happens in vegas...winds up on my blog

just got back from a weekend in las vegas... my first trip there and I went with miss B. its good and crazy and a little- ok a lot overwhelming. we were staying at the mirage on the strip. it was great to experience, and to see and time well spent with miss B. some highlights include:

guest lists and drinks for the ladies. party with a celebrity host. vip treatment. cafe au laits/oles by the pool. wander on the strip. go to venice. go to paris. go to rome. half price martinis. wine bar. old vegas. shrimp cocktails. slots. roulette. losing EVERYTHING. catching up. dressing up. drinking champaign under the stars.

it was a good trip. we did in fact have the same vip treatment as a celeb and have our picture taken by the same photographer- which was all kind of strange (check it out: we ate lots of nice snacks and appys and drank all the free drinks we wanted. we talked to strangers. we people watched. we explored. we went off the beaten track. don't know that I'll run back there right away, but it was a nice escape for a weekend away. thanks miss B!

lucky 8...

I have always been fascinated with multiple births. I have actually always wanted to have a multiple birth of my own. twins actually run in the family and I believe there are about 6 sets now on my mothers side of the family within my generation. both my grandparents on my mothers side were said to have been from sets of twins. I plan on taking it up a notch and having triplets.
this brings me to the current situation of the octupulets birth in the states. there is currently a lot of controversy: she is single and unemployed. already had 6 kids. lives with her mom. brought upon herself assumed negative attention for the medical profession for in vitro fertilization, and in her first interview so far draws negative attention to herself by obsessively repeating she really loves kids, really loves them, really wanted a lot of kids because its all she ever wanted.
I don't have a problem with having a lot of children, I also don't have a problem doing it on your own because its something you want to do (sans man). I don't have a problem with in vitro fertilization or the prospect of winding up with 8 kids in one miraculous shot.
but does anyone have a problem with the fact that she looks like a plastic surgery attempt of looking like Angela Jolie? thats weird.
