Sorry for the lack of posts this past week, but I've been out in Las Vegas, all 115°F of heat, hanging out with Hoade as he did research for his new novel. We were lead to believe that the Hôtel San Rémo had free wireless, but as we found out, nothing in Las Vagas is free, and the Hôtel San Rémo was no exception; it also didn't have wireless but ethernet so I was out of luck in using my laptop (which only has wireless).
It'll be a few days before I work through the 350 plus photos and get the write-up written. It's got chills (“Man, this hotel room is cold!”) and spills (“Ouch! Oof! Umph! Ow! Yikes!”). It's got action (“Come on—baby needs a new pair of shoes!” “This is a slot machine, not craps, and you don't even have a baby!”) and romance (“So … how much you got? For five hundred I can give you an excellent time.”). Intrigue (“What are you taking pictures of?”) and conspriacy (“Bob Lazar was forced to move to Mexico because of his exposé of Area 51.”). And the unexpected (“Dude, the power just went out!” “Watch out for the slot zombies!”).
But first, I have to finish reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
