I'm Going to Vegas!!!

Omg...my dream tree is already working! No sooner did the tree and the lights go up - and the ocassional ornament, not too many because I'm saving it for my "dream" ornaments - I get the fantastic news. I'm going to Las Vegas!!!
(picture to the right is where we're staying)

Jeez, I'm still hyperventilating, which isn't real good for a boomer chick, is it?

I'm telling you, you really need to get a dream tree...it performs miracles! Okay, I'm spacey, but, if you've been reading the last few posts in my blog, I've put up a new Christmas tree this year - deeming it the dream tree and I'm going to adorn it with ornaments reflecting what I'd like to accomplish in the upcoming year. I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd get a Vegas vacation out of it and it's ABSOLUTELY FREE.

BF won this free trip thingee through one of the casinos he frequents. Everything is free - plane tickets, hotel..man, it's unbelievable. It's not until February, thank goodness, because I have no clothes! With Christmas right around the corner, buying for myself is unthinkable, so if anyone wants to buy me a present, I could use about five pairs of jeans, maybe two or three new t-shirts and about six pairs of new Victoria Secret panties. I think I can handle the rest. Omg...I need another suitcase to lug all this stuff out there because it's for six glorious days and god knows if they have a washer and dryer on the premises. Probably. Omg...I need a laptop. How can I check email and everyone's blogs without one????

One thought does scare me, though. Ever since 911, going by airplane ANYWHERE scares the shit right out of me, soooooo...don't know how I'm going to handle that one. And what do you do on a plane for THREE hours, will someone please tell me?

I remember the last airplane ride. Eighteen years old. BY MYSELF. Some jerk old fart beside me tried to hit on me. Nice. Not.

Anyway, been too excited to get anything written. Barely have answered email. I'm just so freaking excited. I did think of another ebook I'm going to put together and sell on my site. If I can just calm down for two seconds enough to get some thoughts down.

And...it's been two weeks and one day since I sent my hen lit to DREAM AGENT. Not that she's even going to accept it. She's that huge. Would be nice, though. That's the first ornament I'm buying! Something to do with travel, since my book is about this cross country trip. And the characters do it in a psychedelic RV. So, hm. Anyone know where I can find a psychedelic RV Christmas ornament? That ought to be reeeeal easy to find, you think?

  4. Congrats to you! You deserve it! My advice is to get a good book and keep your face in it so that no old farts try to hit on you. 3 hours will fly by! Thanks for visiting my pad.

  5. Huge congrats on the Vegas trip, Dorothy! You'll have so much fun - hey, I wish I were going, too! The 3 hour flight will race by - just take notes for scenes about anybody hitting on anyone. Come to think of it, my book, "Red," has one of those. :) Anyway, when you get back you'll have so much fodder for more books to come.

  9. Dot,
    This is fantastic! Before you go, make sure you get our oldest kid's phone number. He is the head audio/visual tech for the Union. He knows EVERYTHING that is going on out there--the best places to eat, but best shows, museums, etc.

    Now, as for what to do with 3 hours? How many of my books do you have that you haven't read yet? That should last you at least the 3 hours out there AND the 3 hours back!

    Major congrats. I added an angel to my dream tree, and I got a pretty decent royalty check, so I guess I should put a dollar bill on it to see if it multiplies again next quarter! I love your dream tree idea!

  11. ENjoy Vegas! I went once, in 1993. It was a reward from the owners for getting Gary Morris to play the club (the post you read at my place). They took me with them for a week and paid all my expenses. It was fun, but I haven't been back since.

  12. You like shopping with the madding crowd at the mall and you like Vegas? How unalike can we be!?
    Well, have fun anyway. I think if I could get away it would be to a quiet beach somewhere.

  13. LOL, I already live at the beach. Now if we're talking mountains...I'm there!
