My friend Lena was in Vegas over the weekend for a medical conference and this presented itself as the perfect excuse to drive to Vegas for a nice vacation.
Angel and I drove out Saturday morning and got to Vegas with plenty of time to grab some of my favorite fried chicken at Raising Cane's
Adele came on and everyone in the restaurant started singing it. I'm not even kidding, it was amazing.
The afternoon progressed with a very lazy and fulfilling Boy Meets World marathon in the hotel room while Angel and I waited for Lena to conclude her conference. I don't care where I am, I will always choose watching Boy Meets World over going out if it is on television.
Classic 90s, they just don't make 'em like that anymore.
The marathon conveniently ended when Lena's conference ended, so we took the first-time Vegas tourist to the strip for some sightseeing.
The sightseeing consisted mostly of us visiting the Bellagio and Paris Hotels/Casinos since they are nearest to Planet Hollywood where we were staying. I think we spent an hour sightseeing. Although that is a rather lame attempt at tourism, the little time sightseeing was made totally worth it when we ran into Mark Salling of Glee.
Random celebrity sightings are not very frequent in my life, and even less frequent in medical school student Lena's life, so this was a very lucky day for us. Salling was totally not in the mood to be recognized or to be photographed and all photo requests from fans were politely denied. I respect that, no means no. In the future he should try harder to be inconspicuous if he doesn't want to be recognized, dude didn't even cover the mohawk with a hat or put on sunglasses, so he wasn't trying very hard to be unseen. Plus, he looks exactly like Puck in real life, like he was even wearing clothes that I'm pretty sure Puck has worn on Glee. Oh well, the only image I have is that in my head that I would telepathically communicate to you if I had that gift. For now, you shall just have to believe me.
The brief sightseeing was followed by us returning to our hotel for dinner at Earl of Sandwich and to get ready for the night of going out. It was at this point that we discovered Pride and Prejudice was on television (the Kiera Knightley version) so naturally we watched this. I'm not even a fan of this version, but I love Jane Austen's story so much I can't help but watch it. At this point, I could have concluded my trip and felt it totally worth it.
We then glammed it up for a night of dancing at The Bank. I have officially doubled my nightclub quota for the year and feel pretty good to have that goal met when it is just February. They say two is better than one, and I guess I would agree that that this second outing for the year was better than the first. Especially when you consider that this time I got to see Robin Thicke perform..
I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I am pretty much the luckiest girl in the world.
Raising Cane's, Boy Meets World marathon, Mark Salling, and Robin Thicke at The Bank, were equally gratifying. Angel says this is because we are so well-rounded, I think it is because we are just a couple simpletons.
