2 Tired 2 Post

4 Comments

So I’m back from Vegas but I am dead tired. So, so very tired. What did I do there? I saw Joel McHale at Mandalay Bay, Barry Manilow at Paris (where we got upgraded from crap seats to 8th row!), and Conan O’Brien at The Palms. I also met BJ Novak (Ryan from The Office) at the Paris Casino in one of the more randomly surreal five minutes of my life.

What else? I ate at a ton of Brandon Flowers fave eateries and did other Killers related stalker-y things I probably won’t publicize (but no restraining order! So something to shoot for next time :-)) I will say we went to Sam’s Town and it is the most fucking awesome place ever. Why they don’t do cross-promotion with The Killers is beyond me. They’d make a TON of money from crazy fans like us.

I also got to meet and hang out with some Victims girls and their very patient husbands which was fantastic. And we had a nice little VictiGirl bonding event on Saturday night to the strains of Midnight Show that will stay with us all forever. Literally.

And then I drove solo into the Mojave to see what Mr. Flowers is always on about, and it is indeed, pretty heartstoppingly beautiful. Especially when blasting When You Were Young and burnin’ down the highway skyline on the back of a hurricane, that started turning when you were young.

I’m sure I’ll throw up some pics, or some tales here – but right now I’m exhausted and behind on my TV viewing and totally spacey so hopefully I’ll be back in the blogging groove shortly.

(Thanks also for making last Friday the busiest day here yet, and pushing my stats up to above 22,000 hits!! Unbelievable!! Thank you!)

  1. welcome home you are still standing!?

  2. Was so happy to enable you! xoxo

  3. This perfectly summed up the entire trip. It was awesome, insane, completely random at times, and absolutely memorable. Pictures really don’t do it justice-you had to be there to believe it. And I’m so happy we all got to experience Killers shenanigans together! Really one of the best trips I’ve ever been on 🙂

    I’m sure The Killers are trying to figure out how to put a gate around the whole CITY to keep us out!

  4. That holiday was the most awesomely awesome thing ever! For so many reasons! And yes it will literally stay with us forever ;-P

    Can’t wait to do it again some day!
