IN VEGAS!

WE'RE HERE!
We're sitting, lamely, in the hotel room, waiting for Erik to make up his mind about where he wants to go from here (because I can't be bothered to make up my own mind). The drive was uneventful: we left at 2pm and arrived and were jecked in to the hotel by 6pm. Pretty - darned - fast. The CHP were out in force, but we were fortunate enough to avoid their capture.

(Sigh...) Now Erik is getting on his laptop to post a blog entry. We're never gonna get out of here! We are both capable of internet access because Erik setup a wireless network. Shhhh. Don't tell the Hotel Management.

Anyways, so we got here a little before 6pm and I only led us astray for a little while, before Erik corrected us and led towards the parking structure, where there were dozens of other MINIs parked, in all their magnificent glory.

Magnificent glory would not be the phrase I would use to describe my road-torn ride. My MINI had bug guts all over it. Not two minutes were we out of our MINIs and stretching that we were popping our boots and taking out our Quik Deatiler, Stoner's Invisible Glass, and microfibres. I know, I know - but I was not about to let some bug's internal organs stain my bonnet stripes, no way!

Erik performing a little bit o' magic
Once we checked in at the AMVIV counter we grabbed our bags and headed for the hotel lobby. Once safely tucked into our room, Erik parted the Red Sea - oh wait, I mean, he was able to extract the stripped screw (it was not as stripped as I suspected), and install my 512MB ram chip. Thank you, Erik! (I said that, like, twenty times already).

So.... still waiting for Erik to make up his mind. Methinks he needs to do less typing and more thinking, because I'm hungry and I want some booze... stat!

More to come...
