Last Night in Vegas.....

Tonight has been really good fun. As much as I'm not keen on Vegas I do really like some of the people I get to meet here. It's always sad to say goodbyes with the knowledge that, for the most part, you won't see most of them again for at least a year.

I spent the beginning of the evening with Jason, Leanne and Gareth having a meal and then drinking at The Splash Bar until Jason and Leanne had to disappear to catch their flight. Then Gareth and I drank and chatted away until various other people showed up and the much larger group splintered into segments of conversation. I finished the evening in the very good company of Shane Hensley, Simon (who happens to be Dominic's cousin!) and his girlfriend, Jason (from an Australian distributors) and his girlfriend and a few others. Amusement and piss taking was had by all! :p

We also discovered tonight one of the signs of the Apocalypse. Vegas is phasing in a smoking ban in casinos. Now Vegas (along with Germany) are the two places in the world I never thought this would happen. The whole casino culture is geared towards alcohol, tobacco and gambling. So over the next couple of years casinos will slowly start to become no-smoke areas.

Tomorrow I check-out of here and fly off to Los Angeles for a few days. I should have internet access there also so I guess I'll probably be checking back with you guys and gals then.

It's been a good trip so far and I hope I'll be able to see my far away friends again sooner ratehr than later.

Also, Americans don't know how to do small salads. I had a fruit salad yesterday for lunch and it was possibly the largest plate of fruit I've ever seen! At least it was healthy!!!!

Off to bed now. Good night - or really good mornign for my readers back at home!

Heh. Aitkendrum still speaks with fond nostalgia about his salad at the Cheesecake Factory - he ordered the *lunch* version and it was still large enough for him to take half of it home!

I'd somehow managed to completely forget that Dom's cousin was now in charge of Pinnacle/Great White Games. We were chatting at the booth when I asked him if it was his first GTS Show and he said no, he'd been before with the Judge Dredd CCG. I mentioned that a friend of mine's cousin worked on that game too. He asked who and I said I wasn't sure but his cousin was called Dominic. Much 'small worldness' ensued :p

I've left the bar for the night and am flying to LA tomorrow so doubt I'll see him before I go. I do however have his email and will be talking to him about a few things in any case.

Surprised the hell out of me! :)

For salads, you have to ask if they are "entree" sized or "side salad" sized :)

Glad you're having fun! Enjoy the smog capital of the West Coast :)
