Vegas Weekend

So I was out of town over the weekend seeing my friend K. in Las Vegas. I’ve been there more times than I can count and usually enjoy it, but always with a strange mixture of pleasure and disdain. Really, it’s the person (or people) that I’m travelling with that makes it fun (or not). The town itself can be pretty dreadful. I always have that sense when I go that there has to be more to life than this, but I keep going back for more.

I drove from L.A., and I always enjoy the drive through the desert. I was just in “Robert” mode for the trip but still had a great time. We stayed at a friend’s timeshare, and did the usual stuff – lots of walking through the casinos, people watching, eating too much, and soaking in the hot tub. I’m not much of a gambler so I only played the slots for maybe fifteen minutes tops.

I always feel sad when I say goodbye to K., and this time was no different. But it’s great to see her, and breaking up the usual routine always helps. Back to work now.
