Stalkathon 2010: Vegas Edition


So Jill and I have our next Stalkathon set: we’re going to Las Vegas!! My friend Heather lives there and I’ve been wanting to visit her for years but things like low funds and a husband kept me from going. Jill goes almost every year but I haven’t been since 2001.

Of course now that The Killers Obsession is in full force, Vegas is even more exciting a destination. So while we’ll certainly do things like visit the strip and take our pic at the famous sign, we’ll also be cruising Brandon Flowers favorite Frozen Custard Stand and former high school.

Heather is not a Killers Obsessive but she is an Obsessive. She understands very well the need for such pilgrimages as I once accompanied her to Austin, Texas so she could see Russell Crowe’s band perform for several nights. Each AM my roommate and I would drop her off to wait in the line with the other Russell Obsessives, then go sightseeing. It was a very fun (but hot!) trip.

She’s promised any and all Killers attractions we want, use of her car if she has to work, volunteering of her roommate if we need rides, and all sorts of other things like possible free Manilow show tickets and a Killers poster to welcome us to the guest room.

And another bonus? Today I found out that if we go the first weekend in March as planned, it will be Oscar weekend! This would totally save us from sending 19,000 texts back and forth during the interminable ceremony. AND she has like a 52″ HDTV or something.

Stalking with Jill + Brandon Flowers favorite frozen custard + warm weather and sun + snarking on celebrity outfits with Heather = I may never come back

  1. I will call ahead and warn them you are headed that way,actually Nevada as well.

  2. You forgot about the fajitas and the crazy Hangover style photos that will be taken! And getting to see Barry is still too much for me to handle right now!

    Yeah, I seriously might not want to come home either.

  3. i recently admired your lmj desserts … you know I too share your obsession for Lars and Brando…what good taste you have! 🙂 Now this LV trip has me all excited! i went there in October (to see U2 – natch) and asked every taxi driver if he’d had any Killers in his car…tricky! no actual sightings but boy are you in for a treat! lower your expectations, start smoking immediately and you’ll love it! ( i did!)
