I can never get anywhere on time when I am in Vegas.

I don't have too much of a problem with getting to work or the store. I do tend to get pass up my stop frequently when trying to find a place for the first or second time, though.

The problem last night is that I was trying to get to somewhere north of them, saw that the Maryland was right next to it and thought "Oh, I can take that all the way up." I failed to notice that the airport was right in the middle so I would have to go around it before getting back on that same street. In a last-minute realization of this, I went left to Las Vegas Blvd instead of right to Eastern. Thus, I got stuck on The Strip in traffic.

Tuesday and Wednesday are decent days. Thursday and Monday are iffy (depending on season, holiday, etc). It's Friday, Saturday, and Sunday that are really bad on The Strip.

I've since learned to take several of the side streets to at least get close to where I'm going before attempting to get on The Strip. It saves a lot of time that way.

heh, oh, I've noticed. I'm starting to wonder if I should expect to be kidnapped on your "vacation". :-P Nah, it's fine. Carry on. :-)

"All"? o.O That's almost 2000 entries.

Hmm... *counts* My inbox currently has about 15 notifications from you on LiveJournal activity. :-P

I'll respond more when I get home in an hour or two.

I ... don't know. I spent an evening with a couch surfer and he also got my discount to the Star Trek exhibit for me being a local. They've already taken that down, though. I don't know if anywhere else does that either.

Planet Hollywood is right next to the Bellagio. That makes seeing the water show very easy.

What time do you fly out on the 18th?

The water show was shut off when I was there in 2002 for repairs so I am hoping it won't be this year... could you go and tell them they better have it running this time for me

our flight is 12:10

I made like 9 comments.. I wonder if they weren't emailed to you :P

LiveJournal does seem to be getting behind on the email notifications. Their IM notifications are almost non-existent lately. For example, the email notification for this specific comment took about 30 minutes before I finally got it. I know I'm not the only one it's happening to since several people on my Friends of Friends list have mentioned it as well. Must be something to do with the move to their new data center.
