This is Week 2 of the CJ Postcard-a-thon from her cross country trip.
Week 1: Carlsbad, CA
I haven't been to Las Vegas. I really haven't had much of a desire to go either. I'm vaguely interested in it as a spectacle, but I'm not really into what's on offer out there. It's just not my thing. There are so many other places I'd rather go with what limited vacation time I have. As far as casinos go, there are tons of those nearby in Mississippi. Mississippi may not be on par with Vegas concerning neon lights per capita, but I think I can live with that. I have a few friends that are really into going to casinos and even they said they tired of Vegas after 24 hours or so. I'll check it out when I go see UNLV play as part of the ULTIMATE FOOTBALL PROJECT.
Also, I think I'll take this opportunity to mention that the phrase "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" is utterly and completely false (though it is a brilliant bit of marketing.) Every time someone goes to Las Vegas, they tell you every sordid detail of their trip the first time the chance arises.
Anyway...huge rant...CJ didn't even go to Vegas, she went through Laughlin.
