It's a lot of fun, but there are three main problems:
1. I'm away from my family. I know that sounds lame, but it's been almost two weeks now and I'm pretty sure that my son's first words are going to be "Cats in the Cradle..." I miss the spud.
2. Internet access costs $12.99 a day! How can that be? How can I be at a hotel where I can get a buffet of prime rib and shrimp (_shrimp_... in the desert!) for like $4.99, but high speed internet access costs almost $13? I know it probably has to do with the casinos preferring me out of my room and gambling instead of inside of my room and blogging, but it's still pretty annoying. Don't they know that in this economy $13 is what you'd pay for a nice three bedroom in the suburbs?
3. Speaking of the economy, I think it's hitting the prostitutes pretty hard. I mean, I've been in Vegas before, so I've been solicited (it's impossible to be a male by himself without it happening), but this week it's been ridiculous. Last night I walked from the Tropicana to the Mirage and on the bridge there must have been ten hookers pressing their wares to every man who walked by. I felt like I was fighting off vagina zombies.
Before I sign off, I'd like to welcome Allison, our new reader from Vegas. Thanks for finding the site. I think that means I officially have four readers... let the journey towards world domination begin!
Also, Megan was curious about the new blogging venture I'm a part of. I haven't left TV Squad -- I'll still be banging out Office Reviews for them -- but I'm also writing for a brand new site called...
It's a neat new site that I think has a great amount of potential! Please go on over and check it out when you get the chance!
All right, I'm off to the Tropicana employee cafeteria to eat some taquitos and take a real hard look at the choices I've made in my life.
