Melusine, now would be a good time to go-the air fairs are cheap and the weather is mild.  I like to play the slots for entertainment.  I haven't been lucky on this trip, but I've had some good play.  The shows are really expensive.  I'm staying at the Palazzo where they have The Jersey Boys and next door at the Venetian they have the Phantom of the Opera Theatre.  Every time you get into an elevator (we're on the 48th floor) you hear music from one of those shows.

The Musashi I mentioned earlier, hubby saw that restaurant on a TV show.  Last night we ate downstairs at Dos Caminos for Mexican food.  It was very good, although I forgot about this recent allergy to blue cheese...I had a bit of a rough night but it was yummy!

Curlgirl64, thank you very much!

We'll be driving home tomorrow, and frankly I can't wait to get home to my kitties!

Oh, btw, in addition to the CES...the Adult Expo is happening at the same time.  I've seen some interesting outfits (or lack there of) on some interesting looking people.  Oh, and the shoes!?! I feel so dowdy in my regular girl duds.   Roll Eyes

Got back from LV just fine, a bit worse for wear with the long drive back.  We've decided that if we go next year we're flying!!!

Yesterday I had a 24 hour heart monitor on, and today I did an echo stress test.  Not fun, although it will be good to have a baseline.  My family history of heart disease on my dad's side is very bad.

I think I'm going to take a nap-it was hard to sleep well wearing the monitor.  I kept thinking I'd roll over and unplug one of the leads.  When hubby gets home we'll go grocery shopping and I'll shower later.  I couldn't bathe with the monitor on 'cause getting it wet kills it and then they bill you!

Laters!

Thank you, Curlgirl64.  The only thing the doc saw was that one of my heart valves leaks a little bit.  He didn't seem overly concerned, so for now I'll be going back in March for a follow up.

I'm supposed to be in full costume for our last two rehearsals on January 20th and 27th.  I found out today that the new fabric was supposed to be delivered today which means she hasn't started on my dress.  OK-I'm trying not to panic!!!  At tonight's workshop I wore my new accessories and they all got approved.  Yay!

I hope there's nothing to be seriously concerned about.  Sounds exciting about the costumes.

Glad to hear that your heart monitoring went alright!
I forget, does a leaky valve mean you have a heart murmur?

Keeping my fingers crossed for you and your dress!

KNS, I don't know if it means I have a heart murmur.  He didn't say so specifically.

Today I got a call from the doc's office and they have the results of the Holter monitor already.  Good news, its normal!!!  Whew!  I feel better about that.

My parents are coming out on the 20th and staying through 2-10.  This means they'll be here for my birthday.  The big 40.  I think hubby's planned some kind of open house 'cause he just can't plan a party.

I spoke to my mom today and she's doing really well.  Seems she's almost fully recovered from the last major surgery which was in the fall.  Her hair mostly fell out from the chemo, and is growing back curly.  Lucky for her I can help her with that!  I've already got her using the Devacurl No Poo and One Condition.  It is so gentle and moisturizing that she was able to use it during chemo and it helped her a lot.  The chemo really dried all of her skin out and made it weird.

Tomorrow afternoon we have to go to the faire site and get our photo id's made and turn in our contracts.  Been contemplating how to wear my hair and I'm going to wear purple and makeup since that will make me look more like my character.

I just finished reading "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies".  It was a really fun read!  At first I was turned off by the idea, but I wanted something light to read in Vegas and I really enjoyed it.  Its very funny and clever how he interwove his zombie storyline into this much beloved book.

I'm glad the results came back normal.  You and your family are going through so much.  I hope you have a good birthday.   

I'm glad you've found a hairdresser whom you trust.

Thank you, Drear.  It has been tough lately.  I feel really lucky to have found out about the curly girl method and that a certified person lives locally.
As far as my birthday, I think that I'll just be thankful that I've survived these last 40 years, no matter what else happens.

Yesterday, in preparation for my role as Pride and because I had some xmas money I got a facial at the salon where I get my hair cut.  She did an awesome job and I will definitely go back.  I also had a scalp treatment, which was free because of my birthday. 

Today I went to Pilates and DMT and now I've got a headache and am out of alignment.  I've been waiting to get adjusted because I want to start w/a new chiropractor and she recently had a baby.  Her recovery is taking longer than planned so I may just have to go to my old one because the headaches and discomforts are increasing.

My parents are coming out tomorrow...I don't know if they plan on staying at our house the whole time but I imagine they will.  I hope I don't have a heart attach from the stress.  Yeah, that's kind of in jest...

Tomorrow is our 1st scheduled workshop in full costume.  I'm not sure I'm going to have a full costume by then...this seamstress has horrible communication skills.  I am not going to freak out about this.  I'm going to explain to the entertainment director what's going on and that's all I can do.  I will probably wear what I have:
a snood
jewelry
OTK socks
shoes
the most gorgeous pair of black bloomers and matching chemise I've ever seen, yet owned
(Thank you, Goddess!)
And my long cloak so I'm covered, it'll be a bit less scandalous since very minimal skin will be showing although I'll basically be in my underwear (kick a$$ awesome as it is!)

So far, this is one of the weirdest things I've been involved in.  Good thing I like weird!

I plan on going to the Bare Minerals store tomorrow after my MFR to pick up some of their mascara-I love their mineral mascara-and some purple eyeshadow.  At least those two things...

At the moment I have a shorter cape being made, don't know if she'll have it made by tomorrow or not.  I'll be happier with my wool one with this crazy weather.  Thanks, California.  We really do need the rain, though.

I am so glad that you like the chemise and bloomers!  I thought the lace was just to die for.  It was fun making them, and I was pleased with how they turned out.  I UPS'd them yesterday about noon.  What time did UPS deliver them?

Melusine:Like them, I do!  The lace blows my mind-I think the sumptuary laws my be in violation!!  They fit perfectly.
I got them at about 6pm last night.

I need some washing instructions, please.  I figured I should wash them by hand?  I love the softness of the white set.  I think you said they're cotton/linen blend?

I was going to call you last night, but remembered you had chorale and didn't know how late I could call.  You could always PM me to settle our bill.

BTW, I really like the idea of your charm bracelet.  When Magus died, I planted a tree and put one of his whiskers in the ground with it.  Its giving us awesome limes. Smiley

*sigh*Grrr*sigh*I will not freak out*

Guess who's dress isn't ready for rehearsal tonight?  Grrr.  So, I'm going in my undies.  I spoke to the ED today and she's fine with it and understands this is out of my control.  I should have my dress by Monday.  Hey, that's my birthday.  Hopefully I get a super gorgeous dress for my birthday!!!  Unfortunately the color of purple is more wine/eggplant than blue/purple/plum.  I'm hoping when I see the dress I'll fall in love with it.  Good thing I ordered my tall hat in black 'cause none of the swatches the hat lady sent would go with the dress color.

So I've put off my trip to the mall until Friday.  I did  make it to the grocery store after my MFR, which will be good for my folks when they arrive tonight.  There isn't much in the fridge.  We're supposed to get a $h!tload of rain from about 3am until Friday.  I hope it comes slow and steady because flash flooding is a real problem here. 

You all know that it only takes 6" of water on the road to float your car?  I just found out last night we have a Stupid Driver law-it could cost $2000 out of your pocket to pay for a rescue if you try to cross a road with moving water and the sign is posted not to cross when flooded.
