Hey guys/gals, I just wanted to say thanks for everybody who helped me make a choice to go to Vegas for Spring Break. I am so glad I took your advice.
I went there, stayed on Fremont Street. Had an absolutely fantastic time. Got to see Penn and Teller, where I got to be part of the act onstage. (if you've ever seen their magic bullet trick, that's what I was part of). Met them after the show and they were both so nice and kind. Got pics with them.
Also went to the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon. That was the second best day of the four day trip. Had a blast and loved the CG.
Took a helicopter ride over lake mead and Hoover Dam. It was breathtaking.
Saw Daniel Tosh on Friday night, and he was hilarious. Made for some of the funniest/sickest laughs I've ever had.
And, best of all, I got married while we were there. Simple ceremony with just me and my wife.
That sounds exactly how I'd want a non-casino centric Vegas trip to be, though I can skip the wedding since I've already gotten that covered.
Penn is my #1 favorite famous person. I used to almost obsessively listen to his radio show, and still listen to old episodes occasionally. Awesome that you got to get on stage and got a photo with him. Daniel Tosh ain't half bad either.
Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her. Harry: That's a special feeling.
Thank you everybody! I only wish my week this week would have been as good as last week. Car blew up, got a sub par score on two of my mid terms, and have to deal with my bitch ex wife who was mad that I ran off and got married without letting her know.
Not having read any of the Jack Ryan books in a while, you're comments on the continuity do little to make me want to jump back in. It sounds to me like by making Jack Ryan Jr. the protagonist (and a twenty-something protagonist, at that)
